Miniature gaming, board gaming and assorted miscellany

Last night I got in a couple games. First up is Alien Frontiers by Clever Mojo Games. The objective is to deploy colonies on a newly discovered alien world. You use various means to collect energy and ore to build rocket ships and colonies, while getting a hold of alien technologies. Overall it's a pretty simple and fun game. As you can see from the box cover, the theme is very retro sci-fi which is what peaked my interest in the first place.
Next up was a game of Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon by Wizards of the coast.
This one is like the previous two games: Castle Ravenloft and Legend of Drizzt. It's probably the best of the 3 games and you don't need the other games to play this one. In all 3 games, the players can go from level 1 to level 2. I'm not sure why Wizards of the Coast didn't have the games have some sort of progression: Castle Ravenloft level 1-2, Legend of Drizzt Level 3-4 and this one level 5-6. This game competes directly with FFG's Descent which allows players to progress.
