The San Antonio Board Gamers meet (almost) every Monday at Dragon's Lair. In recent news, the Lair has rented additional space for their Magic tournaments, so we've gone from being crowded (20+ board gamers plus a similar number of magic players and a few tables of Warhammer) to having lots of space!

Let's hope it lasts!

I heard that Stone was playing this in the early afternoon, then left.

A new game for everyone ... Chris, Andrew and I ended with 308, 307 and 306. (Aidan lagged behind after a slow start). I'm not sure how I feel about this one, but I'll play it again. It's got Power Grids turn order jockeying added to a ruthless train rush, with dice to determine demand.

Not something you see every day.

Tim died in the first game, which leads me to believe this isn't about comics, since he didn't just come back the next turn.

They said "Commonwealth of Independent States" and I heard "British Commonwealth." That's a problem.

I also learned the 10th word on the back of a Nickel.

Tried out this with Andy.

No randomness here, so theoretically solvable. But I doubt many people will play the game enough for that to matter. I owned and sold Le Havre because I felt there was "one true path" and that doesn't feel like the case here, although the lack of any setup randomness makes me worry.

Reasonable, a bit too abstract for my tastes.

I may start playing 1910 without shuffling both ticket sets together. Because the variance gets a bit high ... I got LA - Miami, San Fran - DC and LA - Atlanta in the opening deal.

Tim and I threw down a 2-player Guildhall. This game has that Innovation feel, in that it's fun to play with four players, but you can't really plan a ton in the downtime with that many. With two players it's hugely strategic - I can't play this card because the other player will play that card and steal it, etc.
