Our local game club, Boardgame Addicts of the Peninsula (BAP), met for our monthly game event last Saturday. Fellow BAPers, please add--particularly since I couldn't play more than a game and a half this time.

Yahoo! group URL for BAP (new members welcome!):

For those interested in the club, next month we're planning on having a couple of special themes...

* Halloween games. It's October, after all.
* Wargame boot camp. I'll regularly teach people interested in wargames some titles that are representative of a particular series or theme (block games, card-driven games, etc.).

This was the only game I could plan before I had to run back home. The game lasted just long enough to finish in the time I had--but I forgot to ask, "Who won?"

Mike Chase was nice enough to try to squeeze this one into our schedule before we had to close up shop, but we barely got started. It looks like a lot of fun (spoken from the standpoint of a news junkie).

It wouldn't be Game Day without Heroscape, the game of choice for the young 'uns who attend.

The second time, I believe, the group has played Diamant. Rowdy, rollicking fun.

First play for all of us, I imagine the first play at BAP for this game period.

Charming game by Kramer and Ulrich, the same pair who brought us Princes of Florence and El Grande. Interesting economic pick up and deliver game with some of the most attractive bits of any game I've seen.

Definitely merits further play and one I would pick up if it were even remotely available.

Saw this played. A wargame where cities fight using Education or Health or Culture. How German can you get?

Dave Peters was the Zen Master for this one. Logical in an abstract kind of way, I think. Made me remember doing proofs and theorems in school, anyone have some aspirin?

Powers:Coleridge:Milton: Faith...must be, if anything, a clear-eyed recognition of the patterns and tendencies, to be found in every piece of the world's fabric, which are the lineaments of God.

That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.

We ran through a quick round of this one after the Zendo experience. Fast and relatively harmless, though not quite as pure a deduction experience as offered by Sleuth.
