9/10Saturday - Boston, MA (Pax East)Looked like it was going to be a sad Saturday with no one hosting but a few things fell into place and Dustin had tickets to PAX East for Saturday (I was clueless to how sold out they where) and I heard they had some board gaming there so I figured I would give it a shot. Little did I realize the size of the convention, so although it's about %85 hot new video games %13 Board Games that still adds up to a huge number. I did notice all the games being played where like medium weight or lighter but I can still have fun with that. They had a pretty amazing "New & Prototype Games" area with tons of new titles set up and ready to play (rough guess is this area would seat a 1,000 peeps) and an open games area that would hold 4x that so good times. The lending library was equally as impressive with lots of great titles to play but don't expect to find many heavier weighted games. I apologize in advance if I talked to anyone before I ate lunch I was so overloaded and didn't realize it till the food hit me and my brain returned to my body

Clank!: A Deck-Building Adventure + Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated – Upper Management PackClank!: Legacy – Acquisitions Incorporated game coming out later this year. I hadn't had a chance to look through the decks but was ready to play. There seemed to be a lot of addlepated players with some not being able to remember their table number and others not realizing that they where assigning table numbers. We got it all sorted out and I was ready to compete against experienced players... except when they asked if everyone had played before 2 of our players raised their hands. I just can't understand anyone wanting to play in a tournament of a game they don't know how to play so we taught them and I managed to suppress my conflict of being a little mad that they would have the chutzpah to enter a tournament and having to spend 10 minutes of our limited play time teaching them the game but we did a good fair teach. I even pointed out how cool the flying carpet was. I had more movement with some boots that generated clank but would let me run through crystal caverns. I did an early smash and grab that I usually never do because it always backfires with some suave player just digging up more treasure. I think I surprised them and made them drop their plans and just grab an artifact from where they where and run for it so the 30 & 25 where left behind. I still thought I lost but the player who could have beat me managed to die on step away from the exit so missed 20 points and I won with a 61 first round.
Round 2: They had a surprise for us for the 2nd round and removed 10 black cubes from the bag and started the dragon 3 steps up so it was all about blood. I did what I could to stay healthy but was forced to switch plans when another player grabbed an early artifact and I had to switch from the 15 to the 5 just to live. I bought some good point cards and a key so looked like I could brave it but because another player had died early the clock was running. I only need 2 spaces and I was going to draw 4 extra cards which was sure to exit. The only that would stop me was if he could draw 5 of my health cubes out of 8 so looked like I was in the running for winning, yay. Dead player drew and only had 4 of my cubes, wtf oh and one cube stuck on the end of his finger and took an extra second to drop and it was my 5th cube, omg! Epic fail, I wouldn't have it any other way and won some promo cards in the process. Good times and I really liked how the different start decks worked and have almost painted my minis Can't wait for the Legacy edition to come out later this year.
