This Geeklist is intended to chronicle some of the games played at a weekly meeting of the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society.





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!

The fancy version with the big board and wood center pieces. Personally I'd stick with the original.

Played a 6p variable-destination variant run by Ted.

I had been anxious to try out some more aggressive tactics to push the humans to victory, but our Admiral and lead pilot were Cylons from the start, and we lost half our pop before the first jump. The rest was academic; we only just made it to the Sleeper Phase.

During the rules explanation: Coins are just a tiebreaker. I've never seen a tie in this game, though.

During final scoring: Oh look we tied on points. I beat you by two coins.

Thanks Bill for bringing this to the table. We got off to a rocky start with some confusion on the rules. Once we got going though, it was pretty good, although the turns stills took a long time because we were not entirely sure what to do. In the end, it seemed we spent too much time fighting each other and not enough time trying to actually win the game (victory points people). By "we" I mean everyone except Bill, who had been quietly amassing victory points while the rest of us slaughtered each other in the streets. After 3 hours, it became apparent nobody was going to catch him before the game end, so we conceded. Thanks Bill, Jonathan, Tony for playing.

I finally got to one of these C&C games. More sophisticated than Memoir'44 or Battle Cry, with much more in the way of tactical options available.

Battle of Borodino. As the French, I had the Russians on the ropes the whole game. Then a bloody and fruitless French assault up the middle costs me the win. 9 dice, no hits = fail.

With a few cards from Dominion: Guilds added.

This is a game where repeated plays benefits you greatly, and I have never been able to get in repeated plays (having neither the game nor the required gamers at home), so I generally steer away from it. But I got lucky to run into a couple relative newcomers. I really do enjoy Dominion!

I think my "engine" idea was sound but I lost focus halfway through and ended up with a cluttered deck, which of course cost me the game by a wide margin.

It's okay for a fast dungeon-crawl filler, but honestly I like Gauntlet of Fools better.

A close victory by Charles Pickney thanks to a double dose of Ben Franklin. I think this game is pretty underrated. It's fun, quick, contains a lot of decisions, and has multiple paths to victory. It's also pretty thematic for what it is.

Euro-pirate. Or, you're a pirate. Not sure. Solid game either way.

Thanks Ken for teaching.

A couple of people have told me this is their favorite pyramid game. I hadn't played it in a while, so I thought I'd give it another shot. Apparently, I'm still not any good at it.

Played two short games of this. I'd forgotten how quick and also satisfying it is. Gotta dust off my own copy.

This is a nice game - fun, simple, short, but makes you think a little. This would work great with my in-laws. Apparently it is unavailable. Is it sold out, or has it just not reached the US market yet?
