Like the title says -- went to 1 day of Geekway 2 the West last year, and had to go back for the full 4 days this year.

I've only been gaming seriously for a little over a year now, but what a year it has been! Thanks to all for some fun times this weekend!!

Started off strong first thing Thursday morning with my regular gaming group. My first play of Tzolk'in Quite a fun worker placement with of course the famous gear mechanism. Definitely enjoyed this one a lot!

Jumped next into a game we'd play once before (short version only), and played the intermediate length this time. Great theme, not bad dice mechanism at all, but it's still just too long for what you get. Can't imagine ever playing the full version.

I think everyone played this game at least once during geekway! It was everywhere. While this is jumping up the charts like crazy, I wonder how much of that is because how hard it is to get it right now?

For my first play, I'd say a solid game that I enjoyed more than I thought I would when we set it up. The power mechanism was cool, and variable player powers as well.

Need another play I think to make a better judgement.

who walked us through it and even had some custom painted minis to make it look cool.

Overall I really thought I would enjoy it more than I did. Probably works great with a group rpg type group.

Finally ended Thursday night late with a playing of 5 player CO2. We'd all played at least once before, but man 5 players was brutal. Only 2 actions per decade was tough! We did save the world early. Still like it a bit.

For the day, I rank them in enjoyment of 1) Tzolkin. 2) spartacus 3) terra mystica, 4) CO2, 5) mice and mystics

again! Draft your team of players, trade, buy free agents, set your lineups and strategies and see who has the best team. Pretty cool sim if you like basketball, could be super fun if they added a head to head game resolution to play it out.

Walking by a couple playing this, and said "what the heck is that!?". And in true geekway fashion they said -- "join in!". Super fun dexterity/stacking game on a boat with multiple axis of movement. Laughed and had great fun on this!

Finally after playing 2 soccer games (real, not board!), ended the evening with a party game with a great group. Team Beaver dominated the game, defeating team hedgehog and team muskrat soundly!

Great way to end the day!

Followed closely by another cute quick game, rolling dice then strategically tetris-like playing of the results onto your board. Nice one.

Dexterity game #2 of the weekend. I was not nearly as good at this one! The movement here was very hard to predict as the positioning to center and weights were difficult to judge

Back to the silly games with this - "Get in my belly!" game. Nothing like grabbing marbles with little doll hands and throwing them into your clown's mouth. This game saw epic defensive clowning as well as a one marble in each hand finish. Could be a drinking game?

First play of this, pretty straight forward and fun, but I think there are some tweaks it needs to make it work more balanced in certain ways.

Enjoyed it though.

The big game of the day, 27 player werewolf game run by Matt. Super fun time as always! Was a wolf, was viewed by the seer, almost got her lynched with some convincing acting, and lasted 2 more days before I was offed! Game ended in an epic 3 person finish, 1 confirmed gg, 1 unconfirmed gg, and 1 turned werewolf who was viewed before he was turned! Werewolves win!
