To celebrate my birthday, we hosted our first-ever Ken-Con and invited our (mostly non-gamer) family over for a weekend of boardgames.

Plus we bribed them with free food.



Our weekend began with just me and my girlfriend. Friday night we played Star Trek: Fleet Captains with my Klingons winning 10-7. We actually had a rare instance of combat where the Federation damaged a Klingon ship and a cloak/surprise attack by the Klingons on a Federation outpost.



Saturday morning started with a two-player game of Zooloretto. I've owned this for several years but only played it once because I was afraid the two-player rules would change the game too much. Turns out I was wrong and we both had a lot of fun. I can see us playing this one more often. (I wound up losing by one point.)



Our Aunt and Uncle became the first Ken-Con attendees Saturday afternoon, so we introduced them to Codenames. As expected, it was a hit.



We also played a 100-point game of The Bottle Imp. Once we all wrapped our head around the rules/strategy, the game really got going.



Saturday ended with a few two-player games of Double Feature.



We had a seven Ken-Con attendees Sunday, ranging in age from 10 to 50+. We wound up squeezing them all into a game of Careers which went on much longer than expected.



After that group of guests left, my brother and sister showed up. We convinced my brother into playing Star Trek: Five-Year Mission. He's not a gamer but I thought he would appreciate the Star Trek theme and the fact that it was a cooperative game. I think he enjoyed it - plus we won! (On the easiest "Ensign" level, but a win is a win!



We couldn't talk him into playing a second game, so we introduced my sister to Pandemic. This turned out to be the closest win I think we've ever seen. We cured the final disease on the very last turn, thanks mostly to the Dispatcher's special ability to get everyone in just the right places.



We wrapped up our weekend with a two-player game of Phase 10.

We may not have been able to play all the games I wanted to, but we got to share some good ones with people who wouldn't have otherwise played them... and we all had fun! Now to start planning Ken-Con 2...

1) What game would you most like to see receive the 'Legacy' treatment?
Suburbia would be cool. You can continue add to your suburb, you can renovate later on to mold your city firther, and when certain cominations happen they trigger events for the city that cffect everyone: riots, hosting the olympics, hurricanes, centennial celebrations, etc.

2) What one aspect would you take out of a game you like to make it better? I thought about this and wasn't sure, but the first poster here mentioned the idea of having free trading in Colosseum and I like that idea a lot. So I'm piggybacking on that one.

3) What number would you consider too many unplayed games in your collection?
Five is way too much. And this should only happen if they've just been purchased.

4) What is your most bitter/haunting boardgaming loss? (Like where you managed to snatch the defeat from the jaws of victory against all odds)
Hmm, hard to remember, but I do recall one time with Risk Legacy where I was just about to meet the conditions to open the big box, but the guy the turn right before me ended up winning first. Or perhaps when I lost Twilight Strugglein only the 4th turn...

5) What game was the biggest let down of 2015? I haven't really played many 2015 games. Favor of the Pharaoh maybe? Expected another cool game from the designer of Suburbia, but it was a pretty basic dice game.

6) If you had to go out of town on business, and had no guarantees that you'd find fellow gamers, would you bring some games with you anyway? {If so, which one(s)?}
No.

7) What links do you have in your Quickbar, and which are the ones you use most often? Geekchat is the one I link most often. I also have a Log Games link which takes me to my game logging app. Also, Dice Tower and Secret Cabal guilds, my collection geeklist and my top 50 geeklist.

8) Are there any games you think have a "perfect" design? Diplomacy maybe?

9) From your collection of unplayed games, (that you would be learning for the first time,) what is the game you would most like to play first? I have no unplayed games so.... I will go to expansions instead. I just bought the Zooloretto Exotic expansion, so I would like to try that one out.

10) What game would you use as kindling for a fire? I heard that Caverna has a lot of wooden pieces...

1955

Parker Brothers had a real hit with this board game that has you rolling and moving about to gain fame, money, and success. Unique for its use of a main outlying track and multiple interior career paths. The game has had some tweaks over time. Admittedly my 1970s version still has some "period sexism" to put it nicely. That said, this game holds up surprisingly well and is a personal favorite.

Since my first thought and love Acquire is already on the list. I will add the one I love playing for sh*** and giggles.

This game, in my opinion, is the best of the role and move games.

I've also never played this one, but it seems to fit the bill in terms of allowing players to choose their scoring conditions.

Best roll-and-move family game I know of. I have a soft spot for it because I played it when I was a kid and because it was first published the year I was born. But nostalgia and coincidence aside, it's actually a very good game and probably deserves to be ranked higher than four thousand something.

$0.79 @ SA. 2003 Parker Brothers / Hasbro. Used - excellent.

Though this isn't the edition I grew up with, this was strictly a nostalgia purchase. Don't judge me. modest

I think my version is from right around the late 1970s/1980s. This was always a popular game in our family. I introduced it to my wife a couple years ago and it remains a hit. Some of the language can be a bit quaint at times. I do think this one manages to hold its age fairly well.

We had a copy of the 1971 version, and it was one of the games that I grew up playing with my mom and my two sisters. For the mass market games of the time, it was pretty good.

Yes, I'm a retired videogame designer (here's my CV for that: http://www.linkedin.com/in/richardham) with a lot of time on my hands and a lot of love for boardgames, and doing Rahdo Runs Through helps keep me retired instead of having to go back to full time work, so I guess it's my job now
