Buckeye Gamefest is an annual Boardgame convention hosted by the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society. BGF is 4 days of Open Gaming, Hosted Events, Competitions, Board Games Sales, and Special Guest Publishers and Game Designers!

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.

Played the Fri. night event with Richard Launius. 8-player with Innsmouth included. Closed the last gate after the explorer failed something like 16 previous dice.

I finally got a chance to play this great space simulation video game. I was the weapons control officer both times I played. The location of the room they set this up in was great, because there was an "observation window" where people could observe one of the crews in action.

I've been trying to play this 10 times in 2014 for my 10x10 challenge, and it's been surprisingly difficult. But I played it once at BGF, in the kid's room of all places.

5 games of this. Tony's well-designed personal scenarios. Better than most of the book stuff.

I got in my first play of the real version of this after playing the prototype during playtesting. Then we played it two more times after that. Very thematic and very immersive.

Saturday night event with Richard Launius. 5 player game, got crushed by the cards in about an hour, so we set up and went again. Took out a couple generals before Captain Death marched into Monarch City.

This game doesn't have a steep learning curve, but rather a sheer cliff face with no handholds curve.

I'm fascinated and frustrated that I am just not getting it.

Erin and Corey ran a Family Feud event in which all the questions were board game related. Erin took a survey over the last couple of weeks on Facebook to get the responses.

Lots of Fiasco games all weekend. I managed to get into a game on Thursday. The game went off the rails weird before we even finished setup. Thanks, Meg, for running it!

The first game was the fastest one ever. Wray built the Catacombs on turn three and nobody had any points yet. Second game I won with the card that gives you the game if you have each type as a patron.

I played a tortoise strategy and it worked out for me (i.e. slow and steady, don't take too many risks). For the first time since I've been playing it, I saw someone collect all five colors in one turn.
