This Geeklist chronicles some of the many games played at this weekly meeting of the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society.

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.

Come visit us at a weekly meeting. Your first meeting is FREE!

I don't have Coffee Beans, and I don't particularly want Coffee Beans, but sure, I'll take Coffee Beans off your hands. And yours. And yours. Hey, look, I have 2 points in Coffee Beans. And I won by 1 point.

Well, I did not get even one full game in before I was called home on a dog emergency... but I did learn/teach Cinque Terre and play through about 1/4 game before leaving. Seems simplistic at first, but the random setup of the produce and markets makes it a new game every time. Also, the almost-but-not-quite chance nature of acquiring produce (using the cards) and the variety of ways to sell them to score lire (points), ensures that even the best minmax-APer would be reduced to a rough approximation of the best strategy. Let your intuition rule the Italian produce industry!

Too long in between plays makes for poor rules explanation and poor play. At least on my part....

I don't know what I was thinking the first few turns, I was playing catchup after that? Need to think about the start next time.

I wanted to play Sentinels, everybody else wanted to play Dominion. Not a bad fallback at all. I played Sentinels later.

If you don't have access to Tide or Sailboat tokens, you don't move around much. That's bad.

Evidence that CABS is family friendly: One of the players was age-appropriate. And won.

At least I won one game.

Not a bad game, but I might be risking overexposure.

There's a pretty good learning curve here, and when you're ahead of the other players on that curve, the game is a blowout.

Our librarian got Vengeance for the library this week (Thanks Nathan!) When I went to find it, it was already being played. Fortunately, a couple of people in the group were willing to play it again (for the third time).

As the Naturalist, I joined Tempest, Argent Adept, and the Sentinels in taking on Iron Legacy in the Silver Gulch. At the end, all of us were incapacitated except for two of the Sentinels. Even incapacitated, we were able to help the Sentinels hang on while the Sheriff dealt with Iron Legacy, until the moment the Sentinels could take out Iron Legacy once and for all. Well, until next time. With superheroes, there's always a sequel.
