We had a smaller but hearty group show up for this first game night in October. For the second year in a row, we have dubbed it old games October. While not every game we played fit the mold, we tried to play games that were published in 2005 or earlier.

About the Game on! Game Night: We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays (plus the occasional 5th Tuesday) of the month at Avon United Methodist Church from 6:30-9:30. The next game night will be on October 15th.

This Ravensburger game from 1998 made it off the closet shelves and to the table. I know everyone who played it was pleasantly surprised.

The original release of this game was in 1999, but this evening the new, much nicer looking, version is what got played.

Most of us grew up in the "Hulkmania" era of the WWF, so we were the target audience for this 1990 homage to that era of wrestling. Five player free for-alls were not a gimmick then, but that is what we did anyway. I played as the "Blockbuster" and got beat on the whole game without a block anywhere. I did manage to pick myself up long enough to pull of my devastating "urban renewal" special move on Greg, which automatically eliminated his "the blacksmith" wrestler from the game.

After that Mike, who was playing "Mr. Brutal, the mad hairdresser", pinned me and eliminated me. Mike was then happy to let the Davids pound on each other and he sat by as Ka-Pow, pinned David R.'s Hot CoaCoa. The weakened Ka-pow then got taken down by Mr. Brutal who won it all.

This 1997 game became the second racing game with boats to get played during the night. It had been on Brian's want to play list for quite some time, and he finally got to cross it off.

This was the second cheapass games title to come out, but oddly this is not an old title. It was published in 2012. The game has a bell, but it has not relation to Pit.

So this is not an old game since it released this year. However, the source material for the game is just over 26 years old.

Mike played this game with me. He is an old school Star Fleet battles player, and he found the way some of the things in this game worked to be odd (like cloaking).

He played the Romulans and I played the Federation using the Enterprise-D under the command of Picard. Picard's free action, and Gordi's special ability helped me keep scanning and score hits on the cloaked ship. The Enterprise's special ability allowed me to keep making small attacks, and those one hits added up. I was able to use O'brein at a critical time to disable the Romulan Plasma before it lit me up.

My shields were down, but a good attack roll did 3 points of damage and destroyed the Romulan ship.

Dave B. and Ben ended the night with this Sid Saxon classic. To keep in line with the old games October theme, they even played the 1980 edition of the game.

Dave B. win (3 columns)
