February 2022 roundup

In February, I managed to play 77 games of 12 different titles with 2 of them being new to me.


Shoot-Out Hockey – 9 plays –  7 
First Published 2005

Board Game: Shoot-Out Hockey

Solo sports replay game using stats for real NHL teams with a choice of playing the game using dice and charts or fast action cards. The cards work well and a match can be completed in 15-20 minutes with the game producing details of goal timings, scorers and assists, penalties, goalie stats etc. Pretty good but not my favourite of these sports replay systems.

Paleo – 1 play –  7 
First Published 2020

Board Game: Paleo

Last year’s Kennerspiel des Jahres is a co-op game set in the stone age where your tribe is trying to survive long enough to complete a cave painting with a novel card management mechanism and a mix and match module system to create different scenarios. Only played once so far, solo as two players, but I liked the way the game played although piecing together how to play was a bit tricky first time around. Need to play again soon.
