Some time last April, we had the idea of going on a gaming weekend with the gaming club I'm in (Thunderbolts). I ended up organizing the whole thing. A lot of people were interested and in the end 25 people joined the fun. Found a nice house in Vielsalm with sauna, jacuzzi and a lot of gaming material (pool table, air hockey). So last weekend we loaded up on beer and boardgames and jumped in our cars.

We also had some side activities like a nerf-gotcha game during the weekend, so people brought loads of nerf guns. Lots of fun even besides the gotcha game itself, people shooting each other all the time. Weirdest game being played was certainly strip-nerf-jenga.

This is the list of board and video games I played during the weekend

We started of with a Call of Cthulhu LCG demo for two new players. Went very well. One of them immediately loved it, while the other liked it, but seemed somewhat frustrated due to playing a bad deck. I gave several demos during the weekend. We're trying to get more players interested in this LCG as it is (imho) the best one from all of the fantasy flight games LCG line.

My mono-syndicate conspiracy-skill deck was awesome all weekend. The new Yog-sothoth / Shub-Niggurath I put together the day before was really good as well, but needs a few tweaks (the three bells is awesome!). My Hastur / Agency deck is kinda rubbish though. It is awesome when it "clicks" and works like it should, but doesn't get anywhere when it doesn't.

This is probably the best euro I've played to date. I like the mechanics and theme. Programming the zeppelin in a "roborally" like way can screw up your plans, but you can advance your ship to make your moves more reliable (in the sense that you'll be doing your moves earlier than the others).

I think there is one problem with the game however: it seems to be very hard for a player that is behind to catch up with the others. Once you made a bad move, it is practically game over. At least that is what happened in our game.

To finish the day, we played some Mario Kart on the Gamecube. I'm pretty good at this (actually, it's probably the only arcade game I'm reasonably good at). A lot of fun playing with 3 others.

Started the second day with some more Gamecube action. I suck at this game, even though it is a lot of fun. Good to wake up though.

Tried this game with two others. I have to say this was probably one of the worst games I ever played. Maybe we got some rules wrong, but there didn't seem to be much of a game at all.

Played this two times. A lot of my friends are very fond of netrunner and wanted to try this out. The game isn't bad at all, but some turns the options are very limited. E.g. several turns you'll do nothing but "advance" to join the others in the next room as the current rooms have nothing of interest anymore and the cards in hand don't give you better options. Still, I like the theme and the game is easy to learn and fast to play.

Had some time to kill before dinner, so I joined a super mario game on the wii. Again, my reflexes show me I shouldn't play arcade games. But it isn't too hard when one of the group is good at it and you can simply follow them.

I always wanted to play a game of Arkham Horror using all expansions, so this was the perfect opportunity. Some new players joined, so I did leave out personal stories and relationship cards. GOO was Rhan-tegoth and we lost pretty fast. There was no problem with dilution. First gate opened in Dunwich, second in Innsmouth and the third one in Arkham. To my surprise, one player was able to join the cult of the thousand young (we practically forced him to do it when he got the encounter) and another joined the silver twilight lodge (so maybe that's why we lost ). The Egyptian exhibition was also active. We saw the least from the King in Yellow (no acts), but we saw something from all the other expansions.

Awesome game.

You can tell we were getting tired as we started of the third day with Mario Party. I play the party games a lot with my kids. They like the figures and the mini games (my youngest even got herself a plush Bowser). It isn't my favorite game, but it is fun playing it with them and see them having lots of fun.

Had lots of laughs playing it with this group. The microphone mini games were a hoot as everyone was trying to sabotage the others by screaming "Banana" all the time.

Fun little game. Tensions rose as people were boosting all kinds of foods, some really trying to win no matter what. I like the theme. Also pretty random game though. Some rounds you are almost certain you're going to win a dish but don't make it. Other times your cards suck so you think you don't stand a chance, but the other players are fighting against each other and you can end up with a victory.

Not sure what to think of this game. A lot of people seemed enthusiastic about it. We were with 8 players and I was sitting last. When it was my turn, I didn't have any cards left to do anything interesting. Next turn everyone was dead and the sheriff had won. I was more a spectator than a player.

I like the theme of this game. The mechanics are ok. In the end, it looked like the first and last player would constantly switch position and the one destroying the last star would determine who won. I got obliterated by another player, losing three stars in a round (even though I was in last position). People also started hogging certain items to make sure that the others couldn't build something.

It is not a bad game, but there seems to be something wrong.

I always love playing Conquest of planet earth. Very random silly action. We played with the Conquest of Planet Earth: Apocalypse expansion. The aquatic resistance is very hard at times, causing a lot of trouble. Fun game.

Last game of the weekend. I'm not fond of the tv series and when I saw the game I wasn't very interested. But I'm very glad I joined. I love the game. The negotiating, the arena fighting. We were laughing all the way through.

Glad we played the short version though. Took 3 hours to finish it. Lost by reaching 12 points first and everyone ganging up on me, leaving the last player breathing room to get 12 points himself.
