We had enough people to fill up two tables tonight. One group spent the whole night with a long, deeper game and the other group moved through several lighter, very interactive game. We will let their comments on the games be the judge of who had the most fun. . .

About the Game on! Game Night: We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays (plus the occasional 5th Tuesday) of the month at Avon United Methodist Church from 6:30-9:30. The next game night will be on February 19th.

While Brian was setting up Shogun, David got a five player game of this frantic dice roller/co-op going. We were doing fairly well until we got to the end. We all made it to the exit with some time left. Four keys were needed to escape but two players only had 4 dice. John got four keys and immediately jumped out, In the rush Mike and I did the same thing. This left David and Greg behind who struggled to get the required keys and time ran out on them.

Technically, this means we all lost, but I made it out all alive so I guess winning and losing in this game is relative.

A four player game of Shogun took the entire night. As this game often goes, the cube tower giveth and the cube tower taketh.

After witch's Brew that group switched to this monster brawler. Scott only got two turns before he got K.O.ed Dan tried to hold on to Tokyo one turn to long, and Ross disposed him from the Tokyo throne. David and Mike worked to take Ross down, but they could not. He got to 20 points and won the game.

After Dan got eliminated from King of Tokyo I joined him for a game of this crazy Space co-op game. We made it to level 9 when an asteroid took us out.

Our perennial favorite made it to the table again this evening. This six player game started off as it often does with a good guy success, and this was immediately followed in the second quest with the minions successfully foiling it. The third quest required four people to go on it, and a vote of no-confidence made Dan the leader. He managed to send all four good guys. Scott was able to follow up with that and get the good guy win. However, Dan's highly suspicious pick of all four good guys pegged him as Merlin and the minions assassinated and stole the win

Resistance (lose)
Ross
Mike
Scott
Dan

Minions (win)
David
Sean
