Another week and another great turn out. Every week it appears we are seeing new people coming to check us out. This week we had another four new faces by my count. More people means a greater variety of games hitting the tables, which is great to see.
Another fun evening!
Joe, thanks for the summary. It was fun to be able to come out again. However, I feel obliged to mention it was Kurt who eeked out the 1 point victory in Trains, with you and I tied for second. Also, after playing Roll for the Galaxy, Kurt and I got burned bad in the co-op game Sylvion.
Had fun this week.
Another great turn out last night. Eight of us started the night playing a game Mag·Blast (Second Edition). It's like Bang in space. It looked cute and light and filler like, but with 8 playing there was waaaaay too much downtime between turns. I fortunately got blasted to smithereens - Thanks Steve - and was knocked out first so I got to choose the next game we played. The best part were the sounds effects everyone had to make upng unleashed a blast onto another player's ships.
Didn't expect to make it out, but ended up blowing off my work event, since was feeling slightly under the weather. So rather than some physical exertion (event was team building at the Altitude Gym's Clip 'N Climb), I thought to take it easy and play some relaxing board games. Alas, I had forgotten Jonathan wanted to give High Frontier a try this week. So for a third week in a row, I got to play another 4 hour, 5 player brain burner >_<. Dave, Frank, and Danny were the other 3 to participate in this interesting "game".
We are a small club of avid board gamers, who meet every Thursday in south Kanata to see who can claim the most VPs.
