My group have annual event for celebrating new year : renting a villa in outskirts area and stayed there, usually for 2 nights although some of us can only join during date 31. Specially this time, we plays so many games so i decide to write down our new year event here so more people could enjoy our story

A brief explanation of my group. We are not boardgame specialized group, we started hanging together as badminton group, from several high school friends who had not seen each other for some years. But it happened that our group grew larger. I first introduce boardgame to my group in 2011, though not everyone are gamer, especially the girls. But as life goes on, the ones who hang out regularly are the ones who play games, around 12 people although not everyone attends weekly and only few of us can stand playing heavier games

Currently there are only two persons in my group who own the games, namely me and my fellow geek

My friend first picked me up at noon, then we picked up our chef and we did some shopping. We finished at around 2 PM then went straight to the villa, picking up some friends on the way there

We tidied up the villa as soon as we arrived at around 4 PM. That took us around half an hour.
After that we sat down, and it was time for some gaming. To celebrate the upcoming year of the Horse, we start the gaming session with Pony Express

Well no, the year of the Horse was still a month away, i brought this one up because it was currently our hottest game

We play with 5. I have the Lasso card since the beginning so i was not afraid of anyone getting far ahead, and called all bluff. This is quite effective to put me around half the track before going to jail. Ricky lead the race and was about reaching Sacramento before i pull him back. I lost the duel because i hit another player, but i manage to prevent him from winning the game, as apparently he needed to leave and pick up her GF asap. We continued the game with 4 players then. I lost the game, but being the player who hit the most innocent bystander was quite satisfying

Unfortunately our chef forgot to bring several of his kitchen utensil so he needed to return to the city for awhile. While waiting, we played easy game because there were two non-gamers, so i decided to play For Sale

We play with 6 players. Property number 29 and 30 appeared in first two rounds so half of us had so few money left in the remaining rounds. The first phase ended with me having 4 cards around number 19-27 and only one low numbered property so the second phase was very easy for me. I won the game with $2k difference

After dinner, Ricky asked for Coloretto but i kinda wanted to recall this game so we played it instead

We ended up playing two rounds of 12 tricks. Calling the limit correctly only score us +1 point so we kinda played safe during the first round, and one player even had no point throughout the 12 tricks so i decided to increase the scoring. I mixed in the +5 point cards and shuffled the score pile, and whoever score point would draw two cards from there. It worked, and maybe too effectively because this time i never had the chance to call limit while two players scored like crazy

Someone was also unoccupied so i tried asking him to play this. I like this game quite a lot, but have never got any success in drawing anyone into this game. Until now, that is. Who would had guessed that my non-gamer friend was actually good at playing this game?

During the first game, i decided to secretly gave him advantage by not using any Ants. But he managed to defended himself well until i was out of piece, so i had to use my Ants. I won the first match, then he asked for another round. Gladly, i started the second round, but this time it ended with a draw. And he even beat me in the third match, so i had to play with full force then.

1 victory, 1 draw, and 1 lose. Everyone else were already preparing the bed for sleep, so we decided to settled the score immediately. And as i had expected, it was about time that he asked about the four pieces i set aside since the first game, so we added the Mosquito for this final match for this night. This time i used my Ants since early game and began attacking swiftly, expecting to capture his Queen fast. But he managed to defend against my first round of attack, so i decided to add more pieces into the hive, and he started attacking my Queen. But being on the defensive side for his first three games did not give him much experience in attacking. And he still was not good at playing Ants, probably copying me as well, so that settled the match to my victory. Our Mosquitos did not even matter

The guys woke up before the girls did, so we took the chance to play the heavier game, and this was currently our hottest heavy game at the time.

4 players game, i tried the Giant this time because i was curious of how difficult a race this was. Other races are Alchemist, Witch, and Nomads. I built my stronghold during first round, because Nomads did the same so i need to protect my territory. I mostly expand my settlements during round 2 and 3, converting the workers into gold when needed. I only realized it was not efficient during later rounds, but my income was really scarce so i did not have many choice. I thought i should not have rushed my stronghold then, better played it slowly but got more income. By the end of the game i only built one city, and 3rd place in both settlement majority and temple track, which put me on the last place overall

Well, at least i had the most breakfast while playing the game

The girls started waking up when we were playing Terra Mystica, and they had been asking to play so we immediately continued our morning session by setting up this game

I played as Olympia B, collecting resources and build two of my wonder stage during the first age. Since the second age we started building up military power, but one of my neighbor is Rhodos so i could only win against the other one. During the third age i build the 7 and 8 blue cards, a guild, my third wonder stage, one yellow, and another military to secure the VP. I thought i was playing well, so i was not sure how i could end up ranked 4th from 6 players

To play this again. Another series of good games, the first four rounds ended with 2 wins and 2 loses. We played rather dull during the fourth round so we took some breather before continuing

When i came back, my hive buddy was teaching this game to another friend. He almost lost the game, but manage to defend himself perfectly, to the point of locking the proper number of his opponent's piece and won the game instead. Well that looked really cool, much better than our games afterwards

I settled the score 2-1 for my victory. I hoped we would play this again, we still have the Ladybug unplayed

The morning session was filled with heavier games, so we dropped the tension by playing lighter games. We started the afternoon session by playing Cash and Gun with 6 players, basic rule. I am not sure how to describe a game of Cash and Gun because the choices are rather personal. We did eliminate one person who were nagging to play since the morning, though. We believed it was for good

Afterwards we wanted to play another round, this time using the ability cards, but both Ricky and i forgot what the cards were saying and we did not have the rulebook with us, so we set up another game

I wanted to play Mascarade but i could only gather 5 people so i took this game instead. It turned out only 4 of us playing, though. This is a good game to play with non-gamer, as it was quite funny as well. We played it 4 times, where i got very lucky during the last game and it was about time we stopped

After the game there were only 3 of us left, so next i set up this game

I taught my hive buddy briefly as the other one had played this game before, then we started the game. I kinda dominated the selling early game, but it costed me much gold. My opponents started to collect VP when i was collecting gold, but eventually i managed to leech trading a little for a while before going for another big trade and ended the game. I won the game and the score was around 25-23-21, quite close

After playing Limits twice Ricky set this game up and taught two new players and asked me if i wanted to join, but i kindly refused a 5 players game with newbies because i knew it would be loooong. By the time i finished playing Carthage the game had only finished 2nd round and the newbies looked like they were having a hard time.

One of them was playing Chaos Magician and having his settlements pinched by two players, rendering him helpless. On the other hand, the other newbie playing as Witch had good position on the board, even though she herself did not look good, i thought the game was too complex for her. Well i practically played on her place since then and won 2nd place. And this was the first time i passed through 100 VP

It was around 8 PM, and now almost everyone had gathered in the villa, though some people were still eating and some were watching TV.

I took this one out, and we played with 9 people. I was not sure whether to use two pegs or one, so i started the game with fairly easy question.. and everyone guessed correctly. So then we only use one peg for guessing for the rest of the game

We had a blast here. For me the outstanding clues were : preparing the future, showing off surplus and deficit, walking backwards, not indonesia not china not japan

I lost the first place to Ricky because i missed the last question : curse at end of time, and chose his card instead. curse him...

I had high hope for this bbq but it wasn’t tasted that good

And everyone were queuing for food so i took a quick shower first before continuing dinner. Chef matters, because when i grilled the meat and ate for myself it tasted great. The early meats were either overcooked or even burnt

We needed something fresh after the bbq, so i suggested that we play this, and got 4 players immediately. I would prefer that we had a real lemonade though..

I failed my gamble at the first day, so i kinda played safe during the following days. This saved me from losing big at the thunderstorm day. My chance appeared at the last day : i sold 10 glasses at 15 cents price, played a prank to Ricky using Magic Marker, and get profit high enough to win the game
