Welcome to the online version of The Game Bistro. We're a friendly crowd, usually willing to play the game you brought with you. But, what's that? Oh, well if you didn't bring game, perhaps you would enjoy a game from our shelves...

So cruise the shelves, and if you see a game we ought to play - make a comment. Visitors to game night are welcome, so if you're a traveling geek visiting Albuquerque, drop me a line and we'll have you over for game night.

I've tried listing the game a variety of ways over the years. I had theme shelves, four shelves devoted to the top 100, and various other approaches over the life of this geeklist. Nowadays I am simply listing them alphabetically.

Comments welcomed!

Take Union Pacific and throw away the board, and you come pretty close to what "Get the Goods" is doing.

This has become one of my favorite 3p games ever. It is convoluted, and the adversity is ever present. I love trying to navigate through the hazards.

Pretty cool dice-based game. A round of 18 holes takes a while if you have a foursome.

This is a relic, predating the Avalon Hill edition of Le Mans, and basically the same game with different tracks. Neat to see the old sports cars of the 50's and 60's honored. Plays a tick slow, but offers interesting mechanisms.

Interesting race game where the trick is figuring out your fuel management. I prefer to play with no more than 4, so that you can have teams of 2 cars on the track.

One of my all time favorite games. Best with 5, but it works well with 4 also. I have the El Grande expansions, but we never seem to use them.

We've been playing El Grande since 2000, although I didn't acquire a copy for the first few years, as we played on a friend's copy. We've played 25+ times.

Greyhounds is an older German game that is visiting my shelves for the second time. It was not well received the first time, back in 2003. But we played the basic game. More recently I played the advanced "Bookie" game. This really was quite fun. Greyhounds needs exactly 4 players.

It's a tired theme. But this merchant battle for routes has a bracing amount of adversity from your fellow players. I quite like this game, and the club has played it 10+ times.

I have collector urges, and the one urge I have indulged the most is collecting the hand made games of Jean du Poel, released through his game company called Historien Spiele Galerie.

The games:

Actium:


Aeronautika:


The American Goldrush 1849:


Amphorae:


Ben Hur:


Cannae:


Kolonial Afrika:


Logomaus:


Mandarin:


Mare Mediterraneum:


Romeo und Julia:


Ruhrpott Tour:


Soldateska:


Timber:


and Teutopolis which there is no picture of on BGG, but is basically the 1st edition of Wettstreit der Baumeister.

It is a light race game about hedgehogs in a hurry! Up to 6 can play. I am fond of the fizzing Igel and Steroids optional rules.

Igel Ärgern entered the collection in 2004. The club has enjoyed it 10+ times.

This is a weird game. Players actually reenact the 1st Crusade. March to Jerusalem and attack the Saracens! But if you run low on resources you an also sack Christian cities too. I like it for the cube tower, the drop dead beautiful game board, and yes, the unexpected theme.

This is a fun game, and as long as folks are willing to scrunch together several can play. You look at the busy placards and write down all the things you see starting with a random letter. Only unique answers score!

2013 addition to my collection. I've have a passing interest in abstracts, and am always looking for games that can handle a crowd. So far I have only played with lower player counts, but have really liked it. I played this many years ago at a convention, and only added it to my collection a decade later.
