I arrived Friday at 1pm, got settled in, and played my first game around 1:30. I've never played a physical copy of the game before, but I've played a couple on the android app, so it was nice to get this played.

After more people arrived, we played 2 games of this. I played once rolling weapons, and once rolling all the numbers.

I have to say this one fell flat with me. All I was doing was rolling dice that I was being told to roll, and didn't really feel like I was able to follow the game at all. Maybe as captain I'd get that feeling, but I probably won't be playing this one again.

Before more people showed up, we played a quick game of Coup. Thankfully it was quick, as this is not my game of choice. I can tolerate it in small doses, but I don't think I'd ever pull this one off the shelf to try and get played.

I had noticed Jacob hauling in his games and he had this. I'd played another version of this a couple years ago and had fun, so I wanted to try this one. It was a close ending with myself going up against Clint, but in the end, I fell over and he won.

I knew nothing about this game except that it was highly ranked. So when I saw people setting it up and there was an open seat, I asked to join in. I had fun with this one. I believe I won this one, but honestly I can't remember for sure.

Again, a bunch of us were standing around trying to figure out a quick game for us. I suggested Pick Picknic, and taught it to the group.

This one was suggested as a quick game by Timothy, so it was pulled out and taught to us. I didn't quite set myself up well in the beginning, so it ended up making the game a little harder, but I did like the mechanics of it. I like auctions games.

I found myself with a group of 4 others, so I suggested Eminent Domain with Escalation as I only ever played with 2 or 3 players total. That was probably not the best choice, since everyone else was new and it made for a slow moving game that didn't hold people's attention.

It was getting late at this point (after midnight), so we ended up playing Boomtown again since we wouldn't have to learn something new. I set myself up a bit better this time, however I still lost.

Saturday morning came, and I wanted to set up Dark Horse and learn the rules. It's a game I brought specifically to learn and play this weekend, and since the morning gets randomized by breakfast and chapel, I figured it'd be a good time to learn it.

However once I learned it and was ready to play, the people who wanted to play were in other games. So I joined in with a game of Last Will, which is something I've wanted to learn for a couple years now. Right off the bat, I had a nice farm with horses and was able to burn through a bunch of money. I still wasn't able to quite get rid of my money fast enough and took 2nd place.

Finally got to play Dark Horse. It was a little slow going at first, but it did pick up, and I had fun with it. I don't recall who won (possibly Tony), but I know I didn't.

After Dark Horse, I was pulled into a game of Galaxy Trucker. We only played 2 flights. I've only played the physical game once before, but I've played the app a bunch. I'm still not good enough to consistently win however, and this was no different.

We had a bunch of people (nine) sitting around so we played Mascarade. I think I remember liking it more, but I think the game went on a little took long. I think maybe next time I won't be as enthusiastic to join this one.

Ahhh.. Just as we wrapped up Mascarade, this was being set up on the table next to us, so I asked to join. This is a game I've owned for a couple years now, but have not had a chance to play, so I was happy. It was a rough start, but we did end up winning.

Found myself with just a couple people afterwards and someone picked up Harbour, so I volunteered to teach. This game is different every time because of the character powers and the buildings.

Jesse was interested in this one, since it plays like the ship building part of Galaxy Trucker, so we took this over to the old lodge and played there.

I noticed someone had a copy of Biblios sitting at their table so I mentioned that it was a fun game. They showed interest in learning it so I set it up. As I opened the box, I noticed my sticker inside and realized it was my copy. It was probably the closest game I've played, with scores of 3, 4, 5, 6 in the end.

Finished off the night with 2 games of Finito! The game was familiar to me, so I'm not sure if I've played it before as a game, or what, but I hadn't logged any plays of it on BGG, so who knows.

This was the main game I wanted to play this weekend, so similar to Saturday morning, I had time Sunday morning to set it up and read through the instructions. After breakfast and chapel we sat down to play. Slow at first, but it picked up once we knew what to do every turn. I should try and find a good summary sheet here to add to my box. Anyway, we had a lot fun with the way the story unfolded, however in the end, even though we had it to the top of the mountain, had our help sign created along side our bonfire and a few other things we needed to satisfy some of the winning combinations, we just didn't have the correct items to win. Everyone else blamed my selfishness when I took the last ink instead of taking the item that would have actually saved us. Oops...

RIP Lily. You will be missed <burp>

We had 6 people, which is the perfect size to play Room 25. I've only played twice before, and both times as a guard. This time I wasn't, so I was happy. It was a very close game, and poor Lynette was pushed into instant death, but the remaining prisoners did manage to escape at the last possible minute!

After this, it was time to pack everything up, eat dinner, and go home. It was fun! Looking forward to next time.
