It was our annual trip to GenCon and we had a great time. We got to try some new releases and play a lot of old favorites. I have been blogging about my quest to play 101 board games in 1001 days. However, that list takes time because I give each game a full review. Until I can get my gencon reviews out there, this will be a good preview. Be sure to check out the 101 list as it gets updated.

This one had a lot of pre-con hype. I made my way over to Asmodee first thing to pick up a copy because they only had a few to sell. I was able to get a quick, 1 round demo it and it intrigued me. Later in the con, we opened my copy and gave it a play.
I'm not sure what to think of the game. It is fun for sure. But it's also one of those games where you will suck at it until you know it well. It's a gamers game for sure. The large dice were neat. The mechanics were interesting and the cards got complex. I think once it gets a few more plays and I learn what I'm doing, I'll like it more.

We spent a good amount of time at the Asmodee booth. They weren't able to sell their advance copies of City of Horror due to some defect of the board.
We were able to get in a play of it though on the over-sized novelty board. It was a blast. Not as much backstabbing as their could have been, but a lot of wheeling and dealing. The guy doing the demo, Gil, it probably the best person at the con for demoing a game. He was a riot.

Dinosaur evolution. We gave this one a demo at the hall and it had some cool mechanics. You are a dinosaur trying to modify your genetics to survive. The game has an auction to buy traits to improve your race. Very simple rules and fun gameplay. Will probably get added to my want list.

A new game that hasn't been released yet. I was able to play one of the early prototype games with the designer and a few friends. Love it! I am looking forward to its actual release. The game combines an auction mechanic with module placement. You are buying parts of a space station and you build it as you go. A new concept and I am looking forward to getting the final retail copy.

This was on my pre-con to demo list. We sat down for a play and the game went quickly. The rules weren't too hard, although we did find out after the game that the demoer had missed telling us a crucial rule, that would have changed a lot of stuff. Oops.
In the end, the game was just OK. Not bad, but not a must own.

A cooperative game where you are trying to save your island from sinking. This one had some great mechanics, good gameplay and some tension. We were apparently one of the first people at the convention to actually win the game. I could see it being a hard game to win. I thought about picking up a copy, but the $60 price tag was too much for me. I felt the game was a tad overpriced considering what you got.

While wandering the exhibit hall of the con looking for a game to bring home to my non-gamer wife, I came across Set Cubed. We are fans of the original Set so I gave it a demo. It combines Set and Scrabble. You roll dice, try and make a set off existing dice on the board. Very easy rules and fast game play. I picked up a copy for her and we've played it already.

I was a kickstarter for this game and I got my copy right before I left for gencon. We gave it a play one night (2 player and 4 player game). The rules were simple and the artwork was great. It plays quickly and was enjoyable. It's not deep gameplay by any stretch, but makes a great filler game.

I brought my copy of Lords of Waterdeep to the con, because its a great 5 player game (there were 5 of us). LoW is essentially a worker placement game with a very light DnD skin. Easy to learn gameplay and everyone enjoyed it.

We had planned in advance to give risk: legacy a play at the con. None of us were huge risk fans, but we loved the concept of risk: legacy. I must say, this game is an absolute riot. Making the game your own was fantastic. I was able to rename South America to Chicago Bear-Land. We were able to get 4 games in in about 2 hours. That never happens with vanilla risk.

We all love 7 wonders. We got the new Cities expansion this year and gave that a play. It integrates with the base game pretty easily. We played one 4 player game, a 5 player and a 7 player. The 7th was the best. I forgot how chaotic playing it with that many people is. I've named 7 Wonders my favorite game that I almost never win.

Our friends picked this one up. A new game about time travel. We were all new to it, but it had some easy mechanics to pick up. I'm probably going to add this game to my want list and debating getting it at the con. It also helps that I won by a lot when we played.

Wow, what can I say about this game. I acquired it recently in a trade and we finally got a chance to play it at the con. Worst rulebook I've ever seen. 2 of use read through the rulebook a few times and we still don't even know if we were playing right. This game was the low point of the con for us and we didn't even finish it. I'll be going back to descent.
Whoever put together this rulebook should be banned from making any more games. If I had paid retail for this game, I'd be livid.

I got a copy of this in the gencon math trade. We gave it a play that night. It was a fun worker placement game. Once we got a feel for the rules, it went pretty quickly. Enjoyable.

I enjoy this one a lot. You are each one of the old gods trying to corrupt the world to your particular dogma. I had an advantage in this game as I've played a few times and also drew Korne with the random draw. He's probably the easiest god to play and I easily won the game. A lot of fun.

I love a good negotiation and backstabbing game. Diplomacy is the king of those games, however it takes hours to fully ruin those friendships. I like Intrigue because it plays in about 45 minutes. We gave it a play and it was quite enjoyable, with lots of backstabbing.

A dexterity dungeon crawler game. We gave this a quick play while most of the rest of our group was out getting dinner. The heroes did as good as I've ever seen in this game, but ultimately died against the sorcerer. One of my favorite dexterity games.

This got a few plays on Wednesday. Very easy rules and quick gameplay. We all enjoyed it and the expansion was great. I've only ever played it with 2 players in the past, but 5 players was just as fun, although a way different game. Much more crowded board.

A new coop game that just came out. Our friends picked up a copy and it was pretty fun. I'm a big comic buff and loved the artwork on the cards. I don't know if it was just our luck, but we had an easy time with the villain in our play. However, it was disappointing to see the lack of cards that came with the game. The demo booths showed a full box of cards, however, when you open the box, it is only about a 1/4 full. Still a really fun game though.

We gave this a play at the Stronghold Games booth. A very enjoyable deck building game with some unique twists. We had a slot to get to, so we couldn't finish the whole game, but we were enjoying it from the amount we were able to play. I'd like to give it a bit more playing time before deciding if I need another deck builder in my collection.

Me and a friend had event tickets to demo Dungeon Command. I went in with pretty low expectations, as I was not a big Dnd Minis fan. Surprisingly, this game was a lot of fun. The rules were well thought out and it felt like they combined DnD minis with Magic: The Gathering. I had contemplated buying a set, but felt the price was a bit high for what you got. I'll keep my eye out for a good deal though.
