The Kuhns' are at the beach this weekend, and while part of the family went to the beach, my brother and I stayed in and played some games! It was cloudy anyways, so why would I want to go to the beach? We got in several different games and then a big one at the end of the day Friday.
I've mostly been a solo gamer of late, which I do enjoy, but it is nice to have human opponents once in a while.

There is bound to be more playing over the next few days we're here and I'll keep the geeklist updated as we go!

Started off playing a round of Iconica with my brother. I'd never played before, but managed to actually beat him, which is unusual for me on first games.
It's an interesting little battle game, which I know has some mixed reviews, but it's fast and has enough to keep us interested, and I do like the art. It's unique.

Played this next, which is also my brother's game, and I got to be Luke Skywalker and R2D2, which I was able to win at with no hull damage. This makes thematic sense, but is a little overloaded for the game. We only had one base set, which you clearly need more of that for this game. Fun dogfighting though!

This was my first time not playing solo, and the rules and therefore the strategy is a little different. My brother played against me, and I found it fun playing this way also. The game actually ended quicker than it does when I play solo. We had a draw with 9 points each. I'm not sure if that's a good score or not, because I score a lot higher solo, but it didn't last as long and I have someone working against me.

My brother and I had played the first 8 chapters way back in December when I got this for Christmas, and we haven't been able to get together to play it again since! So, we sat down and played chapters 9 and 10 (successfully-though we had our first failure ever in chapter 9). This was done while most everyone else was at the beach. Bummer for them.

Back from the beach and showered and fed, my brother and my inlaws and I played a 4 person game starting at novice. We managed to win under not too much stress, though about half the island was gone. We played with the Engineer, Diver, Messenger, and Explorer. This game is always fun!

We really love Catan in our family, and will play at least once every time we're all together. I've won often in the past, and so become a target, but I've also been able to win in spite of this in the past.
This was my first time playing this version, and we played the 6 islands variant (we played with 5 players-my brother, sister, and their spouses). I placed badly at the beginning and never recovered, but it was a good close race for my brother and sister and her husband. He ultimately won, which was his first time, and he very proudly proclaimed himself the "Lord of Catan." For now...we have several more nights here!

This game is nicely portable, and my brother and I played it on the beach today. I suck at this game, and have no one to play it with so I think my brother will take it home with himself.

We played a 5 player original game-with river tile last night and my brother managed to narrowly beat my wife. My brother-in-law (the previous night's "Lord of Catan") and I discovered that trying to win a river tile game without being on the river tiles is very hard. Lots of easy VPs for those who were. I finished with a lousy 7, would have been higher with one more turn, yadda, yadda.

After failing miserably at the opening Legend when I got this in July, my brother and I tackled this this morning, and beat it, though narrowly. We then proceeded to beat Legend 2 as well. We felt it more thematic to keep our upgrades, and so we did-it definitely made it still tense, but winnable. I know that's against the rules, but hey, it's an RPG really, and so we did what we felt was thematic.

After lunch got in a quick game of this (my brother's copy), and managed to save the castle. The attack was pretty steady for a while, until right near the end got the goblin king and a draw 4 monsters tile at the same end draw! Yikes. We weathered the storm and only lost 2 towers.

My brother and his wife flew threw a puzzle as well today, with a lot of complicated tree leaves. Very impressive.

We had a true Con today with 2 games going on at the same time, my brother, 3 year old son and I played this while the women played Dutch Blitz (see below). My son (with slight coaching, and 1 sacrificial move on my part) totally destroyed us at Hisss!

This was a very noisy and passionately played game as we could hear it from the other room.
