The final round of CV

Yesterday was family game night. We played CV, which we purchased after playing it at the local board game meetup.

I found it easy to learn and fun, but reviews were mixed. I like the tableau building mechanic, but everyone thought the dice rolls add too much chance into the gameplay. The idea behind bad luck and  misfortune is to add a little risk when you press your luck and re-roll the dice. It might have just been the night, but we ended up rolling misfortune (three dice showing bad luck) on the first roll multiple times—the cost of a card really sets you back. The player with the worst luck in this regard took social assistance twice, and still lost the game!
