I try to get together with a few friends whenever possible and get some gaming in. Usually every other week we play either Warhammer Fantasy Battle or Warhammer 40k. This was an off week so that meant board and card games. Since it was also a holiday we decided to have a cookout. Brats, burgers, hot dogs, chips, dip, etc. Started with a total of 7 people but before the gaming started 2 people had to leave due to some personal issues. Oh well, that left 5. More than enough for a fun day of mostly light gaming.

The first two games we played were an unpublished prototype game from a fellow BGGer. Just to make sure I dont say anything I am not supposed to (NDA) I will not mention the name of the game or the game designer for that matter. What I will say is that my group had a BLAST playing this. We first played a 4 player game, and then a 5 player game of it. Everybody loved it including my 9 year old boy. Everyone that played really hoped that the game will eventually make it to market. Hats off to the unnamed designer, he really knows what he is doing.

For the record, I won both games.

Next up was a few rounds of Unexploded Cow by Cheapass Games. This one is always a favorite among my circle of friends, and today was no exception. The game started out innocently enough as 2 of the players (out of 5) had not played this before. But after a few round learning the rules the game quickly became a screw you contest with plenty of laughter from everybody.

I won this one too.

Now it was time for something a bit more involved, so out came Dante's Inferno. This was the first time I had played this one and unless I have a LOT of spare time, it may be just about the last. The game itself wasnt too bad, but I found it a bit slow moving especially compared to the other games we played. We played 3 players for this one and it just kind of seemed to drag on a bit too long. It didnt help that I ended up losing this one breaking my undefeated streak for today.

Much like Unexploded Cow, Torches & Pitchforks is another crowd pleaser around here. We played this one for quite a while, and then wondered where the tim went when we were finally done. While there was plenty of Screw You action going on, there were random bursts of helpfulenss too, but that was mainly in an attempt to keep the lead player (me) from staying in the lead! Their efforts were in vain and I was able to squeak out an overall win from the combined total of games we played.

By this time it was after 11:30 and most everyone had to be up at a normal time for tomorrow except for me since I currently work 2nd shift. One buddy decided to stay and hang out for a while so out came the Magic cards. 6 quick games later I was ahead 5-1 and we decided it was time to call it a night. Today was a great day as far as I was concerned, I won nearly everything I touched and everyone had a great time. We cooked enough that I dont know if I can ever eat another bratwurst or plate of baked beans again. The only real regret of the day was that we didnt have longer to play.
