Stavanger - Norway. November 7. -11.
Approx. 100 attended.
10. Anniversary

My personal experience. I probably missed some vital parts of the Con while gaming.

Most important:
Boardgaming is not about pushing pieces and rolling dice - but meeting other boardgamers. They are all over average standard in intelligence, honesty (leave your wallet on the table), social and fun to mingle with.

Love you all! Thanks for showing up!

By coincidence this was the first tournament game ten years ago, and been raced every year since then.

A game from the huge Essen haul of our local club President and wife Kathy.

My mission was to learn the rules to the Spill O Rama. I played it three times to learn away the game. Later it hit the tables several times. Highly recommended game.

Laughs and shouting! But we lost. With one crystal to go, we was at nine core breaches, and total destruction....

Picked up a used copy. Some family members hates rules, and this game have no rules to explain. But it was played several times at this Con. People liked to cool down the brain while eating some junk and still be able to play something

Got it in the Con math trade. Surprisingly it was in shrink, with all the kick-starter goodies included. Read the rules and forced a guy to play it after midnight, something was wrong... Back home I watched Eeekamouse video at 3 am. Some sleep and back again in the morning. Played it right and it is a great game!

Another math trade in shrink. A lot of attention. Informed that the President sunglasses is worth 1VP, and everybody wanted to play it!

A really nice game, but a bit fed up with too many sessions.

Was very surprised that I was the only one with this game. Excepted it to be one of the hot games, but it was stone cold. Played once.

A tradition to play Die Macher, but not this year. A couple of fans was missing this year.

Maybe next year?

Finally a great end to a great weekend.

A zillion games as trophies and awards. (A warm thank you to the sponsors).

With stuff like Russian Railroads I hoped Andean Abyss was a late pick. But I was really late - just a small pocket quiz game for me.

Then my friend Ingmar showed up and gave me the Andean Abyss! - knowing I wanted this game!

Very generous of both Ingmar and GMT!!

A WARM THANK YOU TO ALL! SEE U NEXT YEAR!
