Another wonderful gaming adventure at Origins! Plenty of good food and great games. Big shout out to R&R games having a great attitude! They had nicest staff at the convention. I was a little disappointed in one staff member at AEG. I had a a bad experience while purchasing a game at AEG but ,on the flip side, I did have a great demo at AEG which helped make up for the bad experience. I can say with out a doubt to the publishers. You need good people to represent your games at a convention. Well on to the gaming!

First game at the convention played was Tortuga. I played this game on Weds night using a generic ticket to demo. The game started out with four players. In the middle of the game 2 players got a text and left the game. Not too cool! This left me and the other player to start over. I liked this game as a 2 player better than 4. There is an element to the game where you are trying to out guess your opponents.
I felt the game was a little more strategic and less random with 2. I would have to have a few more plays to really test this theory. Overall a light fun game. I felt like a Pirate Arrrrgh!

Weds evening after Tortuga. I played a fun game of Ticket to Ride. I have not played this game in about 4years. The group I played with were a little more seasoned at the game then I. Even though I lost the game to some better players. I had good time. The group was competitive but were fun. I can not wait now till the deluxe version of this time less classic comes out. A great ending to the first day !

I was excited about this game because it's for 2 players. This game is a solid light 2 player game on the lines of Lost City or Jambo. Your basically
building Padgoda's for the Emperor's visit trying to earn the most points while doing so. There is some light strategy using special abilities to earn you points while holding back moves that play to your opponents strengths.

This game was a 4 star out of 5 game for me! I like Alhambra and this game has some similar elements. You are tile placing building your Palace. Everyone has slightly different goals shown so you are not all going for the same tiles. You also have secret goals which adds a element of deduction to the game. The game overall has a relaxing feel to it. I will purchasing this game once it is available.

This game hands down seemed to be the most popular game of the convention.
It's really a great game.
3 Simple choices to do on your turn. Take coins, Buy a card or Reserve a card.
Seems simple right? Where the game really gets interesting is watching what everybody else is doing. I purchased this simple but deadly game.

I loved the idea that this was a big game in a little box. It truly is!
You are sailing from Lisbon to India making discoveries along the way.
The board is made up cards in a row. The first cards start face up and the rest face down. As you move farther down the cards they get flipped up. You feel like you are sailing to India discovering new place as you go. AEG rep did a wonderful job demoing the game! Thanks Zack I purchased this game.
This game is great to take on a trip. A big game in a small size travels well.

I had no idea what to expect with this game. I would explain this game as charades using a board. Once you get use to the symbols the game is a lot fun. It was a great game to end the convention!
