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!

This is my now definitely my favorite game that I do not own. I taught to 3 others who had never played before and that is the ONLY reason I won by one point- even though I really love this game I am terrible at it. Thanks Matt, Misty and Stephen for playing.

Came in middle of 5 - not bad for me. Lots of airplane history here.

I am not sure I like this type of story-game, but when done as well as Agents of Smersh, I like it just fine. There is more than enough "game" here to keep the "story" compelling. We were doing great until we lost... Thanks Jeffbear for teaching/playing and Kurt and Tim for playing.

I've always wanted to place this on Halloween. Being one day late wasn't too bad. Half the heroes successfully killed Frankenstein's Monster in the first game; most of the heroes killed off their doppelgängers in the second game.

I just got this game because I like worker placement but feeding people stresses me out. I really enjoyed the first play. In terms of difficulty I would put it past Lords of Waterdeep but below Caylus. Maybe somewhere around Stone Age without the end game scoring of Stone Age.

Three out of four of us were playing our second-ever game, and I think the fourth hadn't played it before. We had to read the rules to make sure we did everything correctly, but it seemed to go smoother than if we had all been learning from scratch.

Saw this one being played at a nearby table. We need Ron to bring his copy and get it to the table sometime.

Easily the best thing I bought at Gencon this year. Continues to be a hit both for ease of play and teach, as well as, surprising depth.

Taught this to some nice folks. I like Pandemic but it's hard to avoid alpha gaming, especially when you are teaching. We lost after having cured 3 diseases so I am also a bad alpha gamer.

First time playing this game. I think it is an okay game. I think the map is too big and it's a little too long for what it is.

It was a long battle, but the Sentinels finally defeated Voss with the help of Anubis.

Interesting cooperative/competitive game. Pick your bean Juan at a time, find a business partner (or go solo if you can), roast your blend and rake in the points- or skip the that last bit in my case. Thanks Matt and Erin for teaching; thanks Erin, Matt, Misty and Stephen for playing. BTW, after playing it once I understand the common suggestion to play with as many (up to 8) players as possible.

When you're done playing Zendo and the pyramids are still out, what do you play? On this occasion, the answer was World War 5. (and then Caldera).

Somebody else suggested it and we used the club pyramids, so I hardly needed to be there at all.
