Life is simple

I am fond of small games. I admire a design that needs little components. I am thankful for easy rules. One of the best finds for me has been Mini Rogue. I have played the dungeon key variant of this game 40 times now. And once again it was good fun.

I think I should make a new copy of the PnP, with better colours on thicker paper, as it absolutely deserves it.


One day in 2020 we'll probably have the extended Kickstarter edition. First I was a bit afraid it would needlessly complicate the game. But I've seen it at the UKGE and I think it will still be very nice. Not bare-bones simple anymore, but still in the same vein.

And as I may have doubled my plays by then I am not really sure I'd want to keep playing it over and over anyway. Though I am simple.


We are simple, you are simple

Life is simple, too

Oh, good question. I never thought about the games that way. Part of what I like is probably in the complexity. So at the moment I am mainly looking at how to speed up set up. Which of course still doesn't help when I'm tired from work.


I think Anachrony would hit the table more often, Arkham Horror (goes for board and card game), Comanchería... but I'll think about this some more. And you?

Enjoy! To me it's really fun once in a while. The dungeon key variant (somewhere at the end of the rules) makes sure you don't always take the easy way through the dungeon.


I must admit that if I have some energy and time, a more complex game will come to the table :-) But I need some games for when I don't.
