Hey everybody! This is my first Geeklist and I noticed many people on BGG list out what they'll be playing on a specific game day. There is a large game group here in SF which I have yet to attend. I guess I'm a little shy, so I decided to make my own game day. It's our 3rd one and the group is creeping up in numbers. This Saturday I have two table running of at least 5 people. So, what are we playing?

P.S. Based on this Geeklist, feel free to add what additional games you think will work for our group. I'm sure I can run out and pick one or two up if they seem pretty good.

Settlers... yep, the gaming staple and pretty perfect gateway game. I just found out that we had been playing it wrong. We always start the game with no cards in hand. I read that after placing your second settlement you're suppose to get resources. Oops. I guess they all kill me later.

Ticket to Ride. I just got this game on Monday and played it once with my partner. We like it a lot and think it will be another fun game that will have the others asking for more.

Puerto Rico is probably the group's "most wanted" right now. Good thing I began by playing the online version. This game is really difficult to learn on your own and there are a few people coming on Saturday just to finally learn how to play. I've played the offline/board version now 3 times, so I feel pretty confident in teaching the others.

Carcassonne is another crowd pleaser. We've all gotten pretty good at it and the group plays pretty cut-throat. Lots of "bastard..." whispered under our breath.

The next two games are being brought over by one of the new gamers. Power Grid is something that I have read about on BGG and I am looking forward to trying this one out.

TransAmerica is the boardgame version of the award winning movie starring Felicity Huffman. In it we are forced with the dilemma of being born one sex but knowing that we are actually the other. It plays a bit like "Mystery Date" and "Operation". OK, not really - but this is San Francisco! Looking forward to trying this game too.
