I just wanted to have a place to list the games I played on the first ever International TableTop Day, as well as their results. It's not the biggest or greatest list ever, but it's a bunch of fun games with a solid mix of old and new (to me). I had a blast and look forward to doing this every year.

(Note: my regular gaming group meets every Saturday night anyway, so the only special thing I really did was the addition of solo games and making sure I got my semi-regular online game in with my friend.)

The day started off with an online game of Puerto Rico with my best friend who lives up in Canada. I had never played before, but was familiar with some of the mechanics and skimmed the rules a bit while she explained the basics to me. We played on Board Game Arena.

Results: LOSS Me: 65, Shellie: 68

Not bad for a first time, and had I not missed that the game didn't end immediately when the VP pool was gone, but rather at the end of that Round, I would have changed the order of my final roles and won the game.

I had played this one before, but always someone else's copy. I finally bought my own and it arrived earlier this week, and this was my first time playing my very own copy. It had been a little while since my last play (and first victory), so I re-checked the rules to make sure I was doing everything properly.

Results: WIN! Me: 54 pts (Level 1)

This game definitely went a bit smoother for me than some of my earlier sessions, but I'll still give it another try on Level 1 before stepping it up. I got lucky and drew the pirates that count +2 for each aging card and went after them first, but unfortunately my deck ran dry and I aged during the fight (I'm not sure of the ruling, but I let them get stronger at that point). It was still a fairly clean victory and felt good to get at least one win in for the day.

Headed off to the weekly gaming group for the evening, and played this while dinner was finishing up.

Results: LOSS Me: Loser, Julia: Winner

I wasn't super impressed with this one, but may have to give it a few more tries to see if it grows on me.

After dinner, we grabbed this one. With the Kickstarter going on, it felt like a good time to get in a few more plays of the base set to better compare it against the upcoming changes.

Results: WIN! Me: 43, John: 42, Julia: 37

As usual, this was a tight game that came down to the last couple of turns. I went pretty heavy into military and was able to attack two planets on my last turn to eek out the win.

This was another new one for me. John has been trying to get me to try it for a while and with a smaller group this time I agreed to check it out.

Results: LOSS Me: 37, Julia: 33, John: 63

It's John's favorite game (probably because he tends to win) and I can see some of the draw for it. Definitely would have done a couple of things differently after seeing how it all panned out, but otherwise I had fun and would give it another try.

Another game I picked up from an auction in the past couple of weeks. I read through the rules and gave it a shot after I got home from game night and before heading to bed.

Results: LOSS Me: Tyranid food

I had played this once before as a co-op, and fought my way through a rusty play. Pretty sure I got about everything right, but it still felt like I was just destined to die early on. Looking forward to getting my revenge on the game eventually.
