This is a PRIVATE LIST for members of the Holden Gamers Guild.

We are a small gaming group that meets in Holden, Massachusetts. Geekmail me if you're interested in playing with us!


So here's how this works. Every person in the group should make an entry on the bottom of this list. In that entry, you may list some games you'd like to play on your Special Pick Night.

Then, on Game Nights, we will look at the who is at the top of the list, and that person will get to pick the games for the night! You can specify different games for different # of players, or just list a game or two and defer your pick if we have a wrong number of people. You're not, of course, absolutely committed to the games you list here. The important thing is that it will be your chance to pick! Some advance notice is nice though, because some people (especially me) are terrible listeners and like to review the written rules before we play.

Feel free to edit your picks as the mood strikes you.

If the person at the top of the list can't attend, we will skip down until we hit someone who is there. You can also chose to defer your pick for whatever reason (please let us know this in advance). If we skip over your entry, you will remain at the top of the list until the time is right and you get your pick.

Once you've had your Very Special Pick Night, please DELETE your Geeklist entry (I can do this for you too), and make a new one at the bottom of the list. I will move your entry to the bottom for you (I just realized I can do this). You can edit your entry to change your picks for next time. Clever, right?

Feel free to delete and recreate your entry if you'd like to clear your comments.

This system should let everyone get in their favorite games at regular intervals while allowing for irregular attendance.

Please still RSVP whether or not you are coming over in the guild forum so we can know what to expect!

1. Board Game: Kemet [Average Rating:7.76 Overall Rank:77]

Recently picked Kemet up and have played 2 half games with the kids. Rules are easy and game can be fast paced. Also CO2 would be another good game I recently picked up. Nice that they both play up to 5 players.

Hello. I am new to the list, but I hope to be around to game for a while! I, like so many others, have the goal of getting all my unplayed games played. I have gone through some of your collection/ratings and hope it is not too lazy to pick some games I would like to be taught to me! If it should be that I need to pick games I can teach, that it fine too.

Also, if I know a game you'd like to learn (see my ratings), I'm more than happy to teach games.

Games I'd like taught to me: China, Taj Mahal, Vegas Showdown, Dream Factory, Through the Desert, Santiago

Games I know I'd like to play again: Guildhall, Carcassonne, Fairy Tale, No Thanks!, Say Anything, Snatch, Agricola, Dune, Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization, Brass: Lancashire
