Happy New Year!

Marc Kenobi

Happy New Year! We hope you had a fun time over Christmas and celebrating the New Year. We welcomed in the New Year playing all the new board games we got over Christmas.

 Boom Boom Balloon

Boom Boom Balloon

Boom Boom Balloon is a simple, fun game which was recommended to us by Draughts when Marc visited last month. You roll a dice to see how far you have to push a stick into the balloon, whoever bursts the balloon loses the game.

Reminds me of Jenga or Kerplunk, and is a fun party game. A great game to play with friends who are new to board games.


Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game, is a cooperative deck building game based on the four movies of the Alien series. The art work is beautiful, and the game mechanics perfectly simulate the panic and horror of being in an alien film. The fear of  a face hugger being the next card you turn over builds throughout the game, because if you can't kill it before the end of the next players turn, your life become a ticking time bomb waiting for an alien to burst through your chest! This is one of my new favourite games, and I would highly recommend it.

We tried many other excellent games such as Splendor, Machi Koro, Trains, Power Grid, The Tortoise and the Hare and Dead of Winter to name a few. All of these games will definatly have pride of place in Coffee & Dice.
