Alright so what I would like to do is have an all day board gaming event so I can finally play some 4-5 player games and maybe some of the heavier stuff.

As far as I know there might be 5 of us coming along and I know I'm the only common factor among the 5 of us so I wanted to put this list together to discuss the plan as a group and also introduce everybody. So here goes:



1 Mike / Michael (what do you wanna go by bro?)

I met Darren through this site as he lives down in Grover Beach with me and we've gotten together a few times now to play some games.

3 Chris

I met Chris through my wife as they used to work together at Cal Poly. I believe we have tried a few times to play some games but its just too hard with all the kids. (One of the main reasons for setting this whole thing up)

Alright - now that we're all acquainted lets get down to the good stuff.

d10-1 Location:
I'm not sure how everyone feels about location but I'm certainly willing to offer up my house. I'm planning stuff for both the wife and kid so they won't be around, my table seats six though I could extend it out to 9 feet if needed and I have a whole fridge that could be filled with beer. I'm open to suggestions for other locations as well (it's more important to me THAT I play not WHERE I play).

d10-2 Time:
As for time, I say the earlier the better. I know Chris has a thing in the evening so the earlier we can start the more game we can get in. My original thought in conceiving this whole thing was like 8-6. If we do it at my house I'll get sandwich crap for lunch or we could order pizza.

d10-3 Games:
Now finally and most importantly - what are we going to play? I'll start with a few suggestions that I think we should do but that's the whole point of the list. I've given everything my rating out of 5 where 5 would mean I definitely want to play it.

Comment away!!

This has to be my favorite game at the moment. I would LOVE to play this with 5 people. Mike and Darren have played it already and it only takes about an hour and isn't that difficult.

I think it would be a disservice not to play it.

I've only played this as a 2 player which I don't think does the game justice. I think this would be a great game to play while we're setting up the next larger game. This one sets up real quick and shouldn't be more than a half hour.

Great worker placement game. Darren and I have played this a couple of times now and had a lot of fun. It would be nice to see how this plays with 5 people.

This is a great little card game that literally takes less than fifteen minutes. It will take me longer to teach it than play it but it could easily be used as a filler game.

A classic that I have yet to play. I know Mike has a copy and I think Darren does too. This could be a lot of fun with this group in my opinion.

Who wouldn't want to build a casino, huh? This is auction/bidding tile placement game that I've wanted to play for a while now.

Not one for the kids. This is a racing game where you strap guns on cars and try to blow away the pedestrians. I'm itching to give this a try.

This looks like a cool card game with hidden roles that I'm eager to try out. It can play with anywhere from 2-8 players.

Got this one off of Kickstarter and haven't had a chance to play it yet. It sounds way cool though.

This is a combo worker placement / tile laying game. Darren and I tried it out and it has some very interesting decisions you need to make. It would be cool to see it with more people.

Another co-op if we'd be interested in that kind of thing. This game doesn't take too long to set up or play either.

Awesome cooperative superhero card game. Not sure how many of us are into co-op games but I thought throw this one out there if any were interested. I've never played it with more than two people and am anxious to do so.

I have EVERY card for dominion and though it is possible to play this with 5 people I've heard it's not a good idea. The base game was only meant to go to 4 but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway. I'm always down for a game though at this point it is the most played game that I have.

The Big Boy! This game box is huge because the game is huge. I am absolutely DYING to play this game. That being said, I think we might wanna save this one for our next get together if this first one goes okay. This is about as epic as a board game can get and takes a while to play but it just looks AWESOME. I'm pretty sure we won't be playing it this first time but don't be surprised if I try to argue for it anyway.

Ahh the old standby. I have games that I would prefer to play but I also would never turn this game down if everyone else was really into it.
