These are the games I saw played at B.L.O.B. in the month of August. Since I had a family commitment (Niece's 9th birthday), I was only able to stay for a few hours. I am hoping some other players will help to fill in the blanks. Please feel free to add any games or comments to the list.

We had a 4 player game of Augustus that lasted just around an hour with setup and rules. I now understand why everyone refers to it as gamer Bingo as you pull tiles from a bag and if you have the symbol in front of you, cover it with a centurion meeple. The only decisions in the game are which card to take when you finish and which card to cover symbols and finish first.

I knew Spyrium would be purchased as it is the hotness in euro style games.

4 of us got this played in about 90 minutes with rules and setup. The game was slow in the beginning, because we had to refer to the sheet for the symbols on the cards. After a few rounds, the game became much clearer and easy to understand.

The different cards can combo nicely with each other and help extend your play beyond the basic two actions. There are ways to mitigate the randomness of the cards by manipulating the discard pile or swapping cards with one of your neighbors or just drawing more cards for the communal deck. It was a good game.
