Saboteur is not a board game. It’s a card game. Well, this game was introduced to me by my housemate. It was quite nice but I didn’t like it that much. I think this is because when I introduced it to my other friends they always play idiotically, for the lack of a nicer term. When I played with my housemate they played it like bridge. Seriously. You’re supposed to figuring things out as the game unfold and play your game strategically. The main part and fun of the game is you figuring out who’s your fiend and who’s your foe. However, when I play with my other friends they didn’t give sh*t about the gold or winning the game. Instead all the cared was if you’re miner, make sure help each other find out who’s the saboteur and make sure the saboteur don’t win… and if you’re a saboteur, yeah just make sure you win.
Then they always say play for fun play for fun. What the fun in playing a game that has the a winning object and you can’t careless if you win or lose and refuse to use your brain? I guess probably, I’m too geeky about this kinda stuff. But seriously, I don’t like playing with people like that. sighzzz…. This is why I like my brothers. Anyway, I only played Saboteur but I also see there is Saboteur 2. I thought it’s the 2nd version of the game but apparently it’s the the expansion pack for Saboteur. So yeah I grabbed both together from Bogas.
Total never heard of this game before. Got as birthday present. Free board game! how cool. I debut the game with my housemate, it was very entertaining and exciting. The objective of the game is basically to kill Dr. Lucky. It’s played using cards so you can kill by playing a series of card but of course it’s won’t easy. You have to be alone with him out of other player’s sight to kill. And when you make your murder attempt other player can prevent you from killing him too.
Though it can be played up to 7 people, the recommended number of players is 5. Definitely a good addition to my favorite board game edit. I think I somehow just naturally like board game that that play using cards.
After a long long time of longing, I finally got my hand on this game. My first expensive board game. I almost wanted to get it from Decode Cafe which cost about S$ 90+. But luckily, I decide to wait and somehow I stumbled across Bogas, an online board game store. It sells at a much cheaper price. I got it from Bogas at S$ 73. The game is great. So I manage to play it twice only though. I like game art especial their cards.
Anyway, what is Ticket To Ride? It’s a board game playing with a set of cards. Basically the objective of this game is you have to score the most point among all player by building trains across the map on the board. And in order to build trains, you need user a series of cards in your hand. It’s quite simple to learn and play. This can take a long time to finish depending on how familiar the players are with the map and destination cards.
Finally, it’s highly recommended. Replay value may not be very high but once in awhile during your board game night after you’ve cycled through all your game, you can come back to it and it still fun!
After a long long wait it’s finally here. But to my disappointment, it can only be played online!!! There is NO offline mode!! what the fish! My current home net suck. So yeah I don’t think I’ll be collecting any copy on the 15 May launch. Sighh…. sad sad. Don’t know when I get to play it.
Seen it with my housemate the other day. It was so-so only. I still like Despicable Me much much more. Actually, I didn’t know this movie is going to be musical. So yeah I was kinda surprise. But the songs were good though. It’s just that I couldn’t really find any substance that especially attract me. It was not that funny, the story line isn’t that fantastic, and the character design isn’t that great either. Well, all in all, I think it’s well… a light-hearted movie to watch. Just don’t expect too much out of it.
February was my budget month but I was lucky enough to have an awesome treat at the end of it. Because of the shopping spree in Jan I had to minimize my spending in Feb. And that means no restaurant outing and the regular month purchases -__-“. But fortunately, it didn’t turn out so bad. In the last week of Feb, somehow I had 2 free buffet treat. The first was not really a treat it’s but more like a heavily subsidize buffet Chalet. I practically spend the night gobbling down food and snack and playing Mahjong. Sounds like a good life. In the morning, the feeling of guilt start to kick in. However, I was too tired and sleepy to care. I barely manage to get myself back home without just falling asleep on the train. When I got back, it was just sleep and sleep…. for over 20 hrs. Sick..!
I slept for more or less the whole Saturday, when I woke up it was Sunday time for another buffet outing! (wait what? yeah again)…. I thought I was going to spending a big buck for this one because we went to this Korean BBQ buffet at Novena called Ssikek. But the outing turned out to be a birthday surprise for me. Totally unexpected. After a full of slumber I completely forgot that my birthday was around the corner. Anyway, it was an awesome treat from my friends. The meat there is super tasty. Definitely thumbs up.
Then on the weekend of the first week of the following week (First week of March), my and housemates hit JB for yet another food and movie outing. !!! I intended to there grab some of my favorite dry cuttle fish and some satay. But it didn’t turn out that way. We ended up having lunch at a Hong Kong restaurant which I couldn’t recall its name. Anyway, the restaurant was so-so only not really recommended. Then for dinner we had roasted chick at Nandos as 1 of our friends was craving for roasted chicken and Kenny Roger was apparently under renovation. I didn’t really like it either. I don’t I’d ever want go Nandos again unless I really have no choice.
After that, we window shopped for a while before heading for desert at Level 3 or 4, can’t really remember. I had milk shaved ice with chocolate favoring and my friends had manga shaved ice with mango flavoring, triple scoop ice cream crepe and banana chocolate crepe at Crepe For You. It desert was really cheap and good! Definitely the savior of my disappointment for the day. Before heading home, we bought some snacks back too! XD
So all in all, February turned out to be pretty crazy. My stomach is definitely satisfied. 🙂
