So as always im a early getter there ( yea maybe not a real word )
and there was not a whole lot going on but after i finished up at reg, AND figured out where stuff was I plopped myself into this
it is a steam punk version o clue with a bit of twist and turns
based off a novel that is based off from a band.
there are 8 char's who are working on a musical work ( details fail me) and we need to find the magic organ and figure out who the chosen one is. we have a limited about of time ( every action and bidding using time and each player has only so much, luckily this was a game with a going back in time feature ) turn 4 or 5 someone turns to the darkside ( ending up being me ) and their ( my ) goal was to figure out the chosen and move my char to the chosen s spot which i did b y the hair on my chiny chin chin
for me I had fun and did well with a bidding and a traitor aspect it was amazing i won as I dont fair well at either on a 1st try
I have a feeling we may see this at a meet up but It prob wont see a lot of light a it is on the lighter side

A racing game
MY friend Mike had a really cool idea for this and made it a 4 race series over the weekend. the map i played was huge and I got to be a mini van and did not end up making it to the finsh line but i had a blast
each gear is a die with a different range of numbers and each turn on the track requires a certain # of stops so you need to optimize each die but cant just slam it into high gear
there are several things on the car which can be slightly damage before ultimate breakdown and a pit will at least repair your tires
the track i played was one of the more advance tracks
I would like to try that track again bu have all 10 racing
so at the end of the weekend Mike awarded the winner with a small prize and trophy ( next year perhaps he can coordinate a ribbon too )

SO in the past few years of my "ubar" gaming. ( gaming at all day meet ups and con's )
I have yet to try this. in part because i do terrible at traitor game. also it doesn't fit in too well with most meet ups
so you get a group of villagers and find out 2 of you are werewolf's when you wake up in the morning and find one of your villager friends have been eaten. you then must have mob vengeance and someone must pay, often it is the wrong person
a great time for sure and will do again
i played 3 times
once as a psyic seere who got a free peak at weather one person was a wolf or not but I got killed and the wolves won that round
round 2 i was a villager and the wolves ate me and they won
round 3 i was a villager and one of the wolves was on to me and ate me but the villagers managed to prevail anyway

A good pirate romping game
I missed some of the finer points as it was later in the day but i would like to try again
you all compete with a band of pirate's scallywags and all manner of ill repute to get the most treasure. each round there is treasure to be ha and you place one of these men from your hand to a board they then get flipped over and rearranged based on their "leval" some minor fighting and such goes on and then the treasure seeking is commenced, the trick is there is also some "bad" treasure , so if you are late to the raid you wont get anything worthwhile or even down right bad and hurtful

well as some of you know the 1st is my birthday and my friend Mike was kind enough to get me this game
it is a slightly themed abstract where the goa is to lay down numbers on a grid to form 7 or 24 or runs. there are some bonus tiles to help boost your scores and when a row equals 24 any open space at the end gets a gem and blocked
play continues until there are no legal plays left
i ended up winning the 1st game but losing the 2nd
I think this could see a few plays but as it is not super deep prob wont see the light of day at meet ups but hopefully i can get my Daughter to like it

so this is a neat twist on a game like Agricola
you need to build the ark and fill the cages with animal pairs.
you get points for each time you build or add food and then when you are able to place. vp;a accumulate on spaces where no one has taken a turn and once a supply runs dry there is no more action.
you get points as well for animals placed in cages where you built some of the walls. a good time but probably a bit light to make it to many game days

Speaking of Agricola a few game day pals wanted to get in a meaty game and settles on this classic
I have a few plays under my belt but still struggle at lining up my actions just right instead of getting greedy and taking something i may not need as much
i ended up not losing so all was not bad

this is a game withingames
where each player plays their own seprate card game buti interacts with everyone else's games
there are very few set in stone unflinching rules
some of them are
you get a vp when the group decied you did something worty of getting one
if you manage to win your game you get 3
this was a romping good time and i really hope to play more
i will also try to link up Dave;s blog, blurp or post so you may get a better idea of the game
but as we found out it is very easy to add, subtract and even readd in players

so with few to make it to the end of the night we settled on this 5 player
i was glad to finally get a game on with kern and Nikki as our paths had not crossed much as of yet
the gaame is based on dice and useing the pips as a amount of gold to take an amount of gems to pull ( there are 0's and 1 bad gem) you then eiuther cash in the gems or score them and hope they last
you also place tents along the path to score points and all along pay homage to the queen ( the lowest tribute paid can not win )
rather fun not real high on a want to play soon but i would not hesitate to play again

I got lucky and sat in on this
you need to plot you craft to 7 of 8 planets and hally's comet and then make it back to earth
the trick is the planets are moving
you get points based on if you were 1-4th on reaching the planet and have some secret objective cards which give you more points based on 1st or 2nd or only ranking.
you have 3 shields and a large tank of fuel
you place fuel cubes on your navigation space, trick is they last each turn and there are event cards which can mess with them so you may go careening off in space or straight into the sun
a really good time and would like to try again

so i got to get a quick game in with Jeremiah
you place cloisters and advisors each turn in different areas and at the end of round 1 and 2 you score the cloisters
then at the end of round 2 you also score the advisors and the routes of 4 or more
very neat
ticket to ride style of selcting new cards where you take 1 of 2 face up cards or draw random

I still really like this game
you start with 1 and then there are 2 2's and the rest of the cards are 3's until l 23
you may play a match or 1 above on your turn or pay in a penalty chip to skip a level or 2. you can also pass or force pass by taking chips or play a green bonus chip to raise or lower the total by 5 play continues until you go out or bow out taking penalies for each card left in hand
play is 2 rounds
best score wins
and oddly enough i won!

so quick so fun
push your luck!
1 of each card but some are out of the game
you each start with 11 chips
you can take the card turned up or place a chip on it
if you have no chips you must take the card
each card is negitive points and each chip left is positive
if you make a run you only "Score" the lowest card
i won the 1st and lost the 2nd'
theres always room for jello!!

so my 1st try of this didnt go so well
so since Mike and Rhonda were playing i gave it a shot
we had 2 clylons and we won
I managed to avoid major suspension from even my cylon cohort until l the very end and the humans got very close but in the end did not make it
with the right mix of people i would play again for sure
but i guess with the right mix of people id play anything

so the con's end was rearing its ugly head but we got 2 quick plays of this
1 4 player which i lost and a 5 player which i lost
his is a neat game where each player has a 1-9 a-h and 9 shape tiles
and you play on a 9x9 gris
least amount of groups wins
tie broken by least captures
overall a good game and a nice lighter game to end the weekend

thank you all and i hope to see more posts.

A new RPG created by a friend. This was a lot of fun to play and is a very unique style. We played for 4 hours and never had a single combat, but even the warriors of the group felt involved as they got to affect the story as well as the other PC's. Great game very story driven and co-op narration.
