November 19th is the day we have been waiting for. From 9am to 9pm we had twelve glorious hours of gaming. Some of the new Essen releases as well as a couple of huge multi-hour epic games. We estimate that we had about 80(ish) people show up throughout the day.

We tried to have everyone record what they played for this list. I do not think all of the games made it on the list, so if you played something that is not listed add it. If you want to fill in more details about a game you played in, then add it in the comments.

Usually, I try to put these lists in a rough chronological order, but there is no way that is happening. I am putting games down in a very random order.

Enjoy reading about the fun we all had today!

Cody and his family came and helped me set chairs up. We got done a few minutes early, so this became the first game of the day.

This was Cody's first time to play. By time he kind of got his bearings in the game I was already up and going.

There were three tournaments throughout the day. Josh set up a pitch car tournament and even had a cool little trophy. Several people played though out the day on a figure eight track with a jump.

Sadly, I do not know who won.

One of the other tournaments we had was a Ping Pong tournament. Nine people played. We did an eight person bracket, with a play in for one of the bracket positions. I had the unfortunate prospect of being in the play in position.

I played from there and made it to the finals against Brian. Brian was never really in danger of losing and got an easy tournament win. The final game score was Brian 21 Sean 16

The final tournament was a dominion tournament. Eight people played in this one. We played two four player games with the same set up using only basic cards. The top two from each group were suppose to go on. In one game Greg and Abe tied with 30 points and both advanced. In the other game, I won with 24 points and everyone else tied at 21. Because Dominion only has one time breaker, and I was the last player the other three shared second. The three people who tied had a play off with the same set up. David won that one to make the finals.

The final game was rough. It was a random set up with all sets. Swindler, Spy, and Militia were all part of the set up. By the end of the game the trash pile was huge. Abe seemed to be in the lead, but I think he a lot of curses that really held him back. When we counted the scores I ended up being the winner. The final tournament game scores were:
Sean 38
Abe 30
Greg 20
David 10

Several people had arranged before hand to play this classic Ameri-trash game. Apparently, this game does not have a tie breaker. That seems odd for an American game. How can you conquer the other players and share victory?
