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!

No expansions. First game 53-52-51. Since we took so long to set up a three player game, we figured we had to play another one.

We flipped one of the pieces in the cube tower about halfway through the game. It made for less action points available, but more choices. I liked that option more, but still unsure what to think of the game.

The Kickstarter version should embarrass Queen. Miscut badly, poor coloring on important spaces. Shoddy all around. Glad I didn't back this from the production quality stand point.

I'd play this again, mostly to get a better feel for it, but I'm in no hurry to do so.

Going to Earth makes for a really long game. Humans made it to distance 10, but the Cylons won before they could make their final jump.

Classic version (CABS copy). 4 players. My first time ever playing this even though I have owned a copy for years and years.

I have looked forward to playing BaHotH for a long time, but I have to say that my first game was very unsatisfying. Wander around house, find stuff, bad things happen, good things happen, more bad things happen... then somebody turns into the bad guy and tries to kill everybody else. My character did basically nothing of importance until he was killed by the "Beastmaster".

I hope this isn't typical of how a game of BaHotH goes. I see it getting quite a bit of play at CABS, so there must be something more to it.

Thanks Amos, Josh and Gina for playing.

I think this is going to be a popular game! The zombies, while part of the game, aren't THE game, and the Crossroads Cards are little bit like have to make "Would you Rather…" decisions at important moments.

Eager to play again! Eager for the final game. I WILL preorder.

Worker placement with samurais! Samurai lumberback! Samurai construction worker!

Seriously though, a really good game. Edo is similar to many Queen games in that the players can control, by their play style, how and when the game ends. In this game, one player used a very aggressive point scoring tactic (at the expense of building and deploying samurai) to get to the game ending 12points before anyone else had time to get their longer, higher scoring tactics going. Unfortunately, it was everyone's first game, so we did not know to try stopping him before it was too late. Also, don't wait too long to build a house in Edo or you may get shut out... which is exactly what happened to me (you can't win the game, even if you have the highest score, if you have no house in Edo).

Thanks Amos, Josh and Gina for playing.

Two teams fight against each other with very detailed characters in a last man standing contest. Certainly a lot of work went into the development of this game (the graphics are very distinctive and the variety of the characters' abilities is amazing), but I am not sure it's my cup of tea.

Played a 5er against Magneto, with Transform Citizens.

Got swamped with Scheme Twists and Jean Greys early in the deck, which very nearly caused us to lose, but the heroes came storming back to claim victory!

We were very fortunate to have several X-Men in the hero deck (Wolverine, Iceman, Emma Frost).

First game was done in four hands. Second game had the most failed Tichus ever by one team. We were too tired to play a tie breaker.
