After that, I had lunch at the GenCon concession area, even though the beginner’s guide advised against it. The lines in the exhibit hall were really short, and the chicken strips I got were fine, and it got me back gaming quickly.

I ate by a game of Transamerica. A couple other folks sat at the table, so I taught them to play and we did one round. In Transamerica your goal is to connect together the 5 cities you draw at the start, and they are all in color coded groups, so they will be spread out across the board. The rail lines you build will be shared by all players, so the trick is to get other people to build the track you need so you can get things connected in as few turns as possible. I played with Shandon and Jimmy, and Shandon connected her 5 cities the turn before I would have, and then they had another game to get to.

The next morning we were pretty determined to get some gaming in. We headed over to the Rio Grande Hall where they had a bunch of their games out to play for free. I really wanted to get a game of Concordia in, one of my favorites, but it was occupied most of the time we were there. A guy in our group mentioned Trans America and so we sat down for a game of it. It was alright, but not the best thing I have ever played. I gave it a 6 rating. Not sure I would seek this out again.

TransAmerica is kind of a Sunday morning tradition at WBC. I'm actually a former champion of this event, but even I'll admit that it's pretty random. The attendance was way up this year, because it didn't have to compete with the Ticket to Ride quarterfinals.

Sunday, Round 1 I was at a 5-player table with Bill Hoch, Claire Kaltman, and two others. I started out auspiciously by scoring 6 in the first round when no one else scored more than 2. After scoring 4 in the second round, I knew I was pretty much out of the running. I did improve in the last three rounds, going out in one of them, but it wasn't enough. I finished 4th. Claire won.


Like I said, pretty random.

The TransAmerica tournament is traditionally run on Sunday morning at 10am. It gives everyone who isn't in one of the semis or finals one more chance to enter (and perhaps win) a tournament. I entered for the first time in 2004, but had only taken part two more times since. This is good news, since it meant that I was in some other tournament (most often either Puerto Rico or Ticket to Ride, and in the quarterfinals or semifinals.

This year I didn't win a Ticket to Ride heat, and I had lost in the semis for Puerto Rico, so after helping Claire get her Ticket to Ride semis started, I entered this tournament.

It was looking okay for a while, but on one round, we all waited for the next person to build to the northeast. Alyssa Mills, who had no cities in the northeast, took full advantage of this and went out while the rest of us took 8 or more hits. She won our heat 5-16-22-23-24 (I was the 16 in second place, but I could hardly even see Alyssa from where I was!)

Because the drive back to Boston was going to be 10 hours, we had decided to stay on till Monday so we could get rest and start early. We didn't want to be driving late at night while we were tired.

Claire and I took a Segway tour, which was enjoyable and offered some lovely views. We then came back to our room and showered and ate dinner at Helen's restaurant (the "fine dining" option.) I had the lamb shank and Claire had the duck, and it was delicious (the entrees were $34 and $40, and the food was fully up to that price level.) We got to bed early and made it back safely home by about 6pm Monday.

So how was Seven Springs? Great! And we're confident it'll be much better next year as management adapts to our group and what they learned about us (and vice versa.)

Was walking by the Train Gamers Association and paused to chat with someone I knew from previous Con Train Game encounters. Next thing you know, I was filling their 4th chair for a game of TA (thanks, Generics!)

I won (kind of felt bad, two of the other players were in the Train Game Tournament, so I kinda hurt their averages... Oh well, Go Team Yellow!)
Woo Wooooooo yellowtrainyellowtrainyellowtrainyellowtrainyellowtrain


That's all I played today, as I didn't even get there until 4:00, thanks to this fricking illness that's been kicking my boot all Con...

(Thank you Rob T for covering my True Dungeon run, so I could get to bed at a reasonable hour for once this week).

OH! And one of the highlights of the Con for me occured mid-game here!!!
Kaitlyn (Stosh's niece) came by to show me here adorable BB-88 costume. Then her big surprise was when she pulled out a lighter and flicked it for me. I couldn't stop laughing!!!
(thanks, kiddo! you made a grumpy old man giggle uncontrollably today.)

plays to 6 - rules for 2-3 with some slight changes. never looks the same. Best with the Vexation expansion. VERY simple rules and turns go fairly quickly. I prefer it to Ticket to Ride and will never not have it in my collection.

TransAmerica might be the best gateway / introduction to all train games. Very easy to learn track laying game that plays up to 6.

Players race to connection their 5 cities on the board by placing tracks on the map. Even simpler than Ticket to Ride .

Can be a bit too simple / easy as kids get older but the Vexation expansion adds a nice wrinkle to the game by giving players a chance to keep others off their railways.

Would like to try Trans Europa the sequel(?) to this game. It might be the same exact game with a European map.

Should I be lucky, this is a beloved game that my brother owns, and is currently overseas on a tour of duty. So if I were to get this game, I could play this game with others, and enjoy it once again. I know it is coming back in print, but who doesn't love a free game?

About three weeks ago, my family moved from a small duplex we were renting to a house that we just purchased. While we have many reasons to be excited about owning a home, at the top of our list is the opportunity to host friends and acquaintances. Hospitality is important to us, but space constraints limited how we could use our old space: I could barely fit four people around a card table set up in the center of my living room. Our very first addition to the home was a dining table and chairs we found on Craigslist, and my wife and I are excited about the possibility of hosting game nights and sharing meals with friends.

TransAmerica may not be the game I would like the best from your trade list (though it does sound fun), but until recently it wasn't even possible for me to consider inviting a group of 5 or 6 people over for a night of food and games. I'm hoping that a game like this would hit the table often as we attempt to make our new home a place of hospitality.
