Here is a list of games that I played at GrandCon 2013 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I had a big list of games that I wanted to play but did not get to many as I visited with several friends between my games. I played a couple of shorter games but most were on the longer side.

What did everyone get to play?

GrandCon (http://www.grand-con.com) is a first year boardgame and comic convention that had approximately 1,500 attendees. Congratulations to Brian Lenz and Marc Specter for putting on a fantastic convention. I can't wait to go to GrandCon 2014.

Four player game that I enjoy and only have played twice. This hits the sweet spot between theme and time commitment.

Both of us were new at the game. Fun two player set collecting game that has some good tension. The theme of mushroom collecting works very well. One of the better 2 player card games.

This was my first play and it was with four players. I was able to pull off a victory by building two 6 part ships that were built for maximum speed. This was a fun game that was very fun.

What a great expansion to Fleet. I was able to play a 4 player game with the two designers Matt Riddle and Ben Pinchback. They are great guys that just love to play games. It was a treat to be able to play them with their play test version of the game.

This was a 4 player game with a home made version of Wiz War that included all the expansion ever made for the game. It was gorgous 3D game board with awesome painted figures. Ryan Lake, the moderator and board creator, did a great job.

Played my second game of the new 4th Edition. Great looking game that plays well. Second time that the Allies win. This is very tough for Napoleon and the French to win.

Played a four player game with 2 very experienced players and one other newer player. The game took 5 hours with game explanations. This is a very good 18xx game for newer players and veterans. I was able to get 3rd place within about 100 points from 2nd place.

A couple were looking to play a quick game while I was browsing the game library and they asked me to join in. I like this game so I agreed. It's not my favorite dice game and there really aren't a lot of opportunities to make interesting decisions (usually there's one optimal choice each time you roll the dice).

Ran into some friends from my weekly gaming group in Lansing and I taught them this game. I like this one a lot.
