Nearly 2 dozen gamers sprawled across Great Escape Games. This is my first boardgame meetup in nearly a year (meetup vs. conventions or private game days), so I'm a bit rusty. Please fill in names, games, and claims to fame. As always for more information about gaming in the Sacaramento, CA. area, please visit us at:

First game of the day was a kitchen sink version of one of my faves. Rebecca brought the goodies and did the 'splainin' for newcomer Ashley. I was in the 2nd seat and started with Marauding Pygmies. I putzed most of my pygmy rolls, but managed to rock the Marauding bit. Decline on T3 and then took Imperial Orcs. That worked well for me and I after a T7 decline, I finished with the Mounted Gypsies. The event cards dictated that I couldn't use the Mounted bonus my first turn, but I abandoned my 4 territories and swooped in on John (after overpaying for an event that would have given him immunity). Rebecca bid on an event that should could take whatever race/power combo she wanted and took Ghouls + cool power.

It was close. It was a tie. I won via more territory:

I've been wanting to try abyss, and John was happy to 'splain. I worked the yellows pretty good and then picked up a location that gave bonuses to Jellyfish (which I had some and got more). I got another location that gave 20-affiliates and some other good stuff. Somehow I pulled off the win. I do like the overall mechanics and integration of parts.

Haven't played Railways since Pacificon last Labor Day and it showed. I chugged along in the southeast, but as often happens, I bumped into Scott. I did get the Jacksonville bounty and the passenger lines. I had one last hail mary to get a city growth and draw into some 5 deliveries. A three plus a three already on the board was the best I could do. Also, I had to spend to upgrade to 5 and that cost me the money tycoon (DaveM and Jean had more). Finished dead last. Scott won. In other news, sun set in the west tonight.

DavidM promised to introduce me to a new area control game. Schwing!

I colonized two inner meadows and locked 'em down. I also completed my body part evolutions. Phil missed that I had the tunneling Thorax so I was able to march right in and take another inner meadow from him. I played cards to boost resources and then hit Phil with my stinger abdomen and pulled a 4 off the deck. Then in Autumn, I switched to Honey abdomen to double a resource. I ended up with most food and larvae (tie) and won going away. Yes, it all works and area control is my fave game binky. I dig it and sorry I missed the Kickstarter.

I've played this once or twice a long time ago. Suffice to say, everyone ran rings around me. Debbie won. I finished last. others were in between.
