This was our group's second time to meet at Games to Die For, and we had a great group of 14 adults (and 4 children), and many fun games were played. Don't believe me? Well, I have the list to prove it! Read on! I mean....Game on!!


The Game On! Game Night West meets every 1st, 3rd, and (when applicable) 5th Tuesday from 6-9pm at Games to Die For at 55 South Raceway Road, Suite 1100 on the beautiful west side of Indianapolis. If you live in the area and love board games, come out and join us for some games!

Five of us sat down for a 4-player game of Thebes (Matt and Bailey decided to use the team approach). After many frustrating pulls from the pretty cloth bags (dirt!!!!), Ben came out on top by one point. John's reward for his woefully inadequate rules explanation was a pitiful last place finish.

Ben - 47
Janine - 46
Matt/Bailey - 38
John - 31

Five brainy scientist sat down for this game of strategy and scientific discovery. Matt put Bill Nye and Neil DeGrasse Tyson to shame with his two point victory. Not sure what happened to Becca here. Maybe she's more or a liberal arts person...

Matt - 17
Peter - 15
Dan - 12
Heather - 11
Becca - "also ran"

After Thebes, Matt and Bailey had to head out, so the rest of us played a game of Lords of Waterdeep (no expansion this time, since Ben and Janine hadn't played before). Ben was once again the big winner, even though he was the target of several mandatory quests.

Ben - 151
John - 139
Janine - 108

We can always count on Dave Briel to bring a racing game to game night, especially in May, with the Indy 500 less than a week away! This time it was Formula Motor Racing, and young Seth took the checkered flag!

Seth - 18
David B - 15
David R - 14
Greg - 7 (tiebreaker for "not last"!)
Link - 7

After Waterdeep, we had time for a quick filler, and Excape is always a good choice for that. Ben was unstoppable tonight, flying around the board and claiming the victory. Janine and I definitely need to get some vengeance at a future game night!

Ben - 21 (W)
Janine - 19
John - 6

The final game of the night was a new favorite with our group, One Night Ultimate Werewolf. Quick, fun, and easy to play, this one is likely to come out pretty regularly. Becca played the Tanner strategy brilliantly, and got the victory (by getting killed!)!

Becca - Tanner (Win)
Ben/Matt - Werewolves (Lose)
John, David B, Greg, Janine - Village team (Lose)
