This Geeklist is intended to chronicle some of the games played at the annual Buckeye Game Fest convention, hosted by the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society. Feel free to add your own games if you attended Buckeye Game Fest.





The Columbus Area Boardgaming Society (CABS) is a club dedicated to boardgaming in central Ohio. The club started as a group of 15 friends back in 1997. Since then, CABS has grown to over 400 members with meetings almost every weekend. Our members play everything from Eurogames to Wargames to light family games. Our club also maintains a library of over a thousand games, which members can "check-out" just like any public library.


Come visit us at a weekly meeting or during our own gaming convention in the fall, Buckeye Game Fest. Your first meeting is FREE!

Happy Gaming!

Jimmy and Amanda taught me this 18xx game Sunday morning. It's been on my "I want to play" list forever. I was super-excited to have the chance. Jimmy kicked our butts, but it was a great experience and the game-space was mind-boggling. I hope I got an opportunity to play it again in the near future. I'd buy a copy, but I doubt I could convince any gamers in the Cleveland area to play it.

I was fortunate enough to be part of a small group who convinced Richard Launius to start us off with this great noir story-telling game. Yay!

Quick deduction game for late at night. Unfortunately I'm not a fan of deduction games, so even if I did end up winning I'm not in a hurry to play again. Better than Clue, not as interesting as Mystery of the Abbey.

We escaped the alien hordes by fixing the ship and getting out of Dodge.

I enjoyed getting this to the table too. I liked the expansion cards. Too bad my ability to draw cards mean I only won two of the contested cards in the entire game.

My one game (weird, only one game lol) was 5 player Earth, with Cylon leader. The lone cylon came in sleeper and was the inexperienced player, he played Cali and didn't shoot anybody, was brigged and only a minor nuisance. Needless to say, the humans won

Abbreviated play of the very pretty print and play version.

Needs the advanced rules, not included, to actually be of any interest.

What a game! I definitely recommend getting someone to teach this game the first time - the four of us were all new to it. We muddled through the rule book and barely finished the canal period after 3 hours, and called the game so we could do other things.

Still, this seems like a fantastic game. I look forward to playing it again (as soon as I have someone to teach it and an entire afternoon blocked out for it).

This has now officially become a tradition for me at BGF. Every year I get a game of it in. This was the first time I had played with 5 players. It was a nail-biter the entire way through and one of the new players one. Very cool!

Afterplaying the base game and the first expansion so many times, it was a nice change of pace to dig through for Rome vs the Barbarian.

I attempted the 'cash' strategy again. If you see someone playing for cash, make sure that you don't let one person get all the cash doubler's and the 'repeat' card actions. But I did enjoy the win where I just bought the election straight out.

4 player game with designer Richard Launius running the game for us.

Got slaughtered; spent all our time putting out fires and never even fought one general.

We played this after the flea market Saturday morning. I had heard some negative things about it being too chaotic, but I kind of liked it on first blush. I hope to play it again soon to get an idea of whether or not it's a game for me. I do like political games and I do like history, so those are some huge pluses.
