This GeekList is one in a series of GeekLists that document the games that get played at the Berkeley Board Gamers Weekly Board Game Days, held almost every Thursday at Eudomonia, in Berkeley, CA.

Lots of folks and lots of games. Please add any games I may have missed.

Feel free to comment with your thoughts on any game, even if you weren't there or didn't play it. Let us know if you like it, hate it, or are interested playing it in the future, etc.

I'm starting a thumb drive here...

I definitely like this game better with 4 players. Taught this to Travis and he ended up winning by one point. I wish there was a more dynamic scoring system, I feel like the scoring is so static and ultimately makes the end of the game rather predictable.

So a few new people came to our game night tonight and one of them caught my attention. As I walked towards the wonderful tables provided my Eudo I noticed one of the new faces teaching Carcassonne to a couple other people. I have to admit I found this to be pretty refreshing. I admire anyone who can go to any game night and break out a game and start teaching it their first night out. Lately I feel like all the new people that join our group seem to just come to our game nights a bit "empty handed" and by this I mean they show up, they don't bring any games, and are never able to teach anything...

It's pretty cool to see someone, on their first night no less, come out swinging or in this case, come out teaching/contributing to our group. I regret not being able to meet and greet this individual tonight. I hope she returns to our group and I have a chance to meet her.

I served an unofficial apprenticeship on this to Pierre. Twice.
