I arrived early so we decided to play a game of Netrunner, having very little to no experience with the game, it took a little while to remember how to play. I got beat up by Eric who guided me through the rules. Fun game with awesome theme I can really see its appeal, it just seems I am too far removed from the 2 player competitive type games scene to be even respectable in these games.

First game of the Event goes to Eric.

We tried to squeeze In a game of Panamax after Matt and Kevin arrived, but it was not to happen, the other 2 arrive before we got it set up, so it would go back in the box, bummer looking forward to trying this one, lots and lots of dice, always a good thing.

So about 7:30 pm on Saturday the 25th the gaming got under way.

Thought we would warm up a bit with some lighter gams to start the evening. Always a great time, and of course gotta love the App!

Game 1 taken by Bill, Eric, Kevin and Matt
Game 2 goes to Eric and Kevin as the werewolves

The drinks were flowing, and spirits high so we decided to keeping going with the light games. Rowdy loud obnoxious fun was had by all.

Kevin almost won game one and 3, but Tom Spited him at the end so no one won.
Game 2 and 4 went to Matt after every systematically eliminated them self by forgetting that comic sans is awesome, or regrettably pointing at someone or something.

Ok time to get on to same real gaming 7 wonders with the cities and leaders expansions is one of our groups favorites. Probably has seen the most plays out of any games in our collection. The expansions really add to the game and we all can't wait to play Babel when we get a hold of it. Great game with so little downtime, I enjoy it every time we play it.

Game 1 went to Tom playing Petras
Game 2 went to Matt due to too much feeding by Tom

Zombicide was next on the list, we rolled through the grindhouse scenario with 6 players. As always not sure we got the rules quite right on this one, it seemed a bit too easy. Zombie killing fun to be sure.

We all win!

Continuing on with the co-op games, we set up the beast that is Shadows of Brimstone. 4 had not played it before, so after character selection and set up we played through the For a Few Dark Stone More scenario. After what seemed like an eternity of going deeper and deeper into the mine without encountering any combat we finally fought our way through waves of unspeakable horror and came out with lots of loot, experience and only a slight head wound. I really enjoy this game, really glad I was able to get it at Gen Con this year.

We all win again.

The first casualty of the night was claimed. Don't know if it was the Unspeakable horror of Brimstone, or the UV lemonade, but Matt was down.



The 5 that remained played through Sheriff, perfect for this time of night. We all enjoyed the game, and one thing is for sure, none of us can be trusted! We all looked forward to playing again.

Even though he never lies and is hard on crime,Tyler won with 172!

Kevin won the second game we played later that morning

Kevin was the next to fall.. I guess Tyler's lies sent him over the edge.


The 4 that remained must of got our second wind, Manhattan Project seemed like a great idea in the wee hours of the morning. Probably prolonged by our lack of sleep, this epic game lasted through dawn into the morning. France was able to finish off their second Bomb at 8:30 am and claim victory. Absolutely love this game.

Tom wins after dawn with France.

Time for breakfast and Among the Stars. Another fun game that is easy to learn. Which is exactly what we needed at this point. I really enjoy this game, and it looks great when it is done. Great drafting mechanic again really limits downtime to little or none.


Eric pulled out a real close game at the end over Tom and Bill.

While waiting for Matt and Kevin to finish Doomtown, we decided it was time for some easy no thinking fun. With his experience Eric dominated the barnstorming action. Fun game for all ages, even over tired middle aged wanna be kids.

Perhaps bolstered by how easy it was to learn Loopin Louie, we thought pulling out A Study in Emerald and teaching it to 3 people who hadn't played before and had been up for 24 hours plus was a good idea. It wasn't. But since Tyler had to leave for a couple hours we forged ahead. The loyalist won after a bitter struggle over who would control professor Moriarty by assassinating one of the restorationist main agents. A bit too much to tackle at this point for a couple of the guys, but I do really like this game. Look forward to playing again with a clearer head.

Matt, Tom, and Kevin took one home for the old ones.

Time for some lighter fare where we could all take out our aggression on each other. A few games of Avalon was just what we needed. One of my all time favorite games, I just can't get enough of it. We played 3 6 player games and one 7 player game when our friend Tony stopped by for a bit. Spies usually seem to win in our group, and it was the case this time.

Bill and Kevin - spies
Kevin and Tom - spies
Bill and Matt - spies
Bill, Eric, Matt - spies

While Tom ate some lunch, and slipped in and out of consciousness,
Tony, Bill, Tyler, and Kevin play a game of Boss Monster, I am told Kevin won, but I was not coherent enough to really say, I look forward to playing this one.

Matt and Eric played a couple games of Doomtown to show Eric the ropes.

Time to go old school. One of our groups favorites, that we have all played a bunch of times, no rules learning required, set it up and go. Prolonged by our combining of the power plant decks, we played a long long game where we got stuck in phase 2. Once phase 3 hit Tom was able to pull out a narrow $4 win over Eric and Kevin. A classic game I always enjoy.

Chicago Poker finishes the games as we pushed through to make it to 24 hours. I can't say all of our hearts where fully in it at this point, stretching into the 30+ hours awake at this point. Kevin claimed victory and we called it!

24 hours of gaming and still so many games left un played, just so much good stuff out there right now. 5 tribes, Dead of Winter, Panamax, Eclipse, legendary encounters, and so many more that we wanted to get played.

Great fun had by all, we all realized we must love board gaming to be able to do it for this many hours straight.
What a great hobby, I feel lucky to have great friends to be able to share it with.


Final pic as we all where packed up and ready to go.
