So, it was a great four days of gaming in Woburn, MA.

I managed to play a bunch of games with a bunch of great people.

Many of these were on my original list titled What I Want to Play at Lobster Trap 16

Here are the highlights in two sentences or less in this list. Feel free to comment.

Great two-player card game with asymmetric card play. I played the runner with a new deck.

Nice simulation of creature evolution and territory dominance. Gene cards don't feel in sync with what needs to be accomplished, and I guess that is what it must be like in real life.

The second in the GMT COIN series. It is a great and shorter card assisted game with four players that have intertwined yet competing goals in 1950s / 1960s Cuba.

A more involved worker placement where you get goods and treasure by outfitting your ship to do so. Play smart or you will have a hard time catching up to the others.

Interesting Japanese title where you get cards with abilities, roll dice to collect money augmented by those abilities to get more cards. Play four goal cards first to win.

A cooperative card game where you and the other players must defeat enemies. Your cards are secret and so are the enemies ability cards so clever card play allows revealing who is best to defeat each villain.
