This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

New Games I am Obsessed With
« on: July 24, 2021, 06:17:25 AM »
I recently got introduced to Carrom which is a sort of shuffleboard version of pool which is a traditional game from india/pakistan.

The board is square with a hole in each corner and the idea is to pot all your discs and the red before the other player does.

It's a lot of fun and much harder than you would imagine at first.

There's a good implementation on miniclip called carrom pool but I went the whole hog and blew £45 on a board from Amazon.  It's huge (32" square) but so much fun.

Ottocento (Tarocco Bolognese), the ancient card game from Bologna Italy. The deck is weird (a version of tarot) and takes some getting used to for sure. But the game is excellent.
