The San Antonio Board Gamers meet every monday night at Dragon's Lair. Join us!

Last night we had one of the original ~4-6 (Chris) show up for the first time in a year; but that was overshadowed by Jonathon's arrival a few hours later, freshly back in San Antonio after 2+ years out of state!

And we had the 20 or so of us who show up every week, and therefore aren't noteworthy...

As always, add games I missed.

I taught Suburbia to Prodigal Chris (with a non-Prodigal Chris joining in). It's a nice opener/closer in that it's fast to explain and plays in an hour or so. For the first time in forever, I managed to fulfill a private goal.

The new hotness?

Four of us defeated Omnitron, and later in the evening Ben's copy saw play.

I'm just going to let it be known that I (a retired SFB player) am totally into the idea of playing this. Particularly if I don't have to buy a copy. Tim, Eric and ... someone else did a three way fight (probably not ideal, but a learning game).

Got in a four way game of Eclipse, the old hotness. I've managed to get in 30+ games in the last 18 months, which is an impressive mark. But all the experience in the world won't help if you launch a slightly odds against attack and refuse to retreat when your opening salvo does worse than average.

I saw this being played and just shouted out a number.

I'm a jerk.

Rob and (California) Jon played this. I've been intrigued by this for a while, and am getting a copy. So I'll be playing this soon.

I've seen this around, and it was recently nominated for the SdJ (it's actually not, but on the 'recommended' list). Doesn't look like my type of game, but points for novelty. What did those of you who tried it think?

I think Mac and Stone (or Awesome) played this, but my coworker Kevin was also playing this in the back room.

If there is one thing life has taught me, if you make something idiot-proof somewhere they will build a better idiot.

We played this with 5 people while suburbia was going on I believe.

This was played by Marty, Sean, Fred and me in the back. We could really use some more table space on Mondays. I miss the days of the annex.
