s it the start of school and the end of vacations? It is the hypothetical cooler temps (it was pretty warm today?) Whatever the reason we had one of the biggest game days in quite a while. We had at least 20 people and even more games played. Perhaps it was the promise of the major prize.

I had thought about the theme (and the associated prize) for quite a while. For a short time I was going to wait for some more games to fit the theme. Due to scheduling issues the next time I could sponsor a game is January 2014. Rather that wait any longer I bit the bullet and sponsored it this month.

For a game to fit the theme it had to have significant round elements (the gears in Tzolk'in, the price wheel in vikings, a rondel, etc), or have a map of most of a world (so Alien Frontiers would count). Generally I err on the side of inclusion

We have these game days most months (often with a theme), in addition to our weekly game nights. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

As always with my game day geeklists, these games are not in exact order played.
