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.

On May 31, 1279 BC, Ramesses II became pharaoh of Ancient Egypt. Ramesses II, sometimes transcribed as Ramses the Great, is often regarded as the greatest, most celebrated, and most powerful pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire. In honor of his ascension to the throne, play Kemet, and see if you can rule Egypt as well as he did.

Finally got the chance to try out the Agents of SMERSH expansion I helped Kickstart. Our bold and intrepid team of UN agents bravely demolished were totally crushed by the forces of Dr. Lobo. Sorry, world.

As I have mentioned before, I love this game's artwork. I also love that it takes place in an alternate universe where cavemen and dinosaurs exist simultaneously.

It's a pretty good game too.

This is just a good game. Easy to teach, easy to learn. Card driven gameplay. Point salad.

I always think I am doing better than I actually am in this game.

I just wish I could actually get to USE that hugely expensive capital ship I bought more than just once. Seems a pity to waste it so.

...with the Forsaken Lore expansion (blends in so well I did not even know we were playing with expansion until well into the game).

My 2nd play of this and, even though this attempt was even more frustrating than the first, I am for some reason convinced that I like this game. After a couple of terrible setbacks (1. all investigators but one teleported to the Bermuda Triangle- far away from virtually everything important going on in the world, and 2. all investigators losing an ally and health- with my investigator's ally being the only thing that made him remotely useful) it seemed that things were looking up when we killed a horde of monsters and closed a number of gates in quick succession. But then Yig woke up and things went to hell fast.

After our ignominious defeat to Dr. Lobo (see Agents of SMERSH above), we got a little fratricidal and duplicitous in a couple of games of Mascarade.

Two of the Minions of Mordred were on two missions that passed. Minions of Mordred still won. Without needing to invoke the Assassin.

... with custom heroes (2 original and Link adapted) + Unity.

We crushed the Egyptian gods villains so easily we decided a more challenging foe was needed. Iron Legacy killed 3 of us in about 5 turns with the last hero holding out a couple more. Eeevill!

Is anybody going to do a "The Tick" version of SotM? I would buy that in half a heartbeat.
