Our first event as an official club!

And this time we were in the space we reserved! Yay!

This week went much better. We had 28 different people play games along with 10-15 people observing some games!

I taught almost all of the games played (and all games except D&D were from my collection).



Here's what we played!


Note: Feel free to make any comments or ask any questions!

A couple players wanted to play some D&D and spent a few hours working on setting up characters and familiarizing themselves with how to play.

A 5p game of Ticket was then started with mostly players who were new to the game.

Manny
Kaleb
Emma
Kyle
Angela

I think Kaleb won this one, but I could be wrong. Everyone seemed to be quite enjoying themselves, as is usually the case with this game.

This was a 2p game with two newcomers, but it garnered a lot of attention! We had 5 other people watching this game as they were nearing the end.

Carter
Tyler

This one ended in a tie between the players (the first of a few ties this game day).

One of the highlights of this Game Day and very much enjoyed by the two groups who played it.

First was a 5 player game I played in.

Only two of us made it out of the temple alive.. and we tied for treasure (myself and Tran). Even those who died loved the game though!

We had someone come in who didn't have much time for a game and didn't know many games, so we broke out For Sale... and it was a hit!

Lewis beat us on this one!

There was a short bit of time and Lewis and I thought we could fit in a game of Dominion (Lewis is my Vice President and so we co-run the Game Days currently).

We didn't finish as someone else came in but we had fun.

Certainly one of my favorites, but that doesn't mean my track record for winning is all that great, and this time didn't help that record, but it was still fun, and I got to teach it to two new players!

Angela won this one!

This covers multiple sets of people playing at different times.

I sat down and taught this game of Ticket to Ride with the thought that I would be playing it through. Best laid plans... I made it through three turns and hadn't yet laid any track when Hosting duties called and I had to bow out.

I hear Lewis won this one.

I've taught this game to numerous people at different groups this year and now I got to teach it here... but this was also one of the odder times I've played.

I started this game with Calvin when he came in as a 2p game. After a few turns, Kira walked in. As the Ticket to Ride crowd wasn't close to finishing I bowed out and caught Kira up to speed on how to play.

I went on to teach some more new players another game (coming up next on the list).

Then Calvin had to leave and I had to step in for him. So I started on one side in the game and finished on the other. I guess I won and I lost?

Two new players had come in and I felt this game might be a good fit. One player was reluctant about playing games, but ended up loving this game and went on to play the next game listed too!

Bryan
Alec

This game ended up in a perfect tie (which means they also had the same amount of goods!)

The last big game of the day, Adventurers again! Push your luck along with crashing walls and a rolling boulder make for a great gateway game!

Devin

Alec
Jojo

Only two players made it out of this game too and Jojo won this one!

The final game of the night was a 2p game of Dominion. This was nearly a shutout. Lewis has played before, but even so Kira bought all but one of the Provinces.

Like last time, we had set up a number of games on tables for the Game Day. Those games were:

Ingenious
Settlers of Catan
Adventurers
Ticket to Ride
Dominion
PitchCar
Roll Through the Ages
Genoa
Ra

7 of those 9 were played and an additional 3 from the bin were played. Interest was again expressed in a great many of the games, both in and out of the bin.

Popular games were:
Dominion - 3 times
Adventurers - 2 times
Ticket to Ride - 2 times

This was a very encouraging Game Day!

P.S. It was good that we hada good turn out as we were being evaluated for whether we could continue to use the room and for how long based on how well attended the event was! I think we quite surprised those who were wondering!
