This Geeklist chronicles some of the many games played at this weekly meeting of the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society.

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"a just like any public library.

April 17, 1961 was the date of the Bay of Pigs Invasion. A group of Cuban exiles -- financed and trained by the CIA -- lands at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba with the aim of ousting Fidel Castro. A large gamble, this invasion is re-created in the ultimate game of "pressing your luck", Pass the Pigs.

Can you hold the luck of the pigs at bay? Press on, if you dare! And use this week's Geeklist to tell us whether you scored that "Squealer" or "Pigged Out".

Then let us know what other games you played!

Finally got to play this with Lynne, who's been asking for months. Matt joined us, and after a misfire on the rules for first game, we played two more. Matt barely beat me on the last two.

With the nice bits! 4 players. I have only played PR a handful of times and I find it an enjoyable classic.

Played with Matt. I won by two points in what became a true race at the end. Glad I got a chance to play this as it's on my Hundred Game Challenge list.

Good old Stone Age with no expansions. 3 players. Still fun after many, many plays.

with expansion(s?). 4 players. I have said it before, but I feel like I am re-learning this game every time I play it- partly because of the different races, but mostly because the rules are just so (what's the word I am looking for: complicated? intricate? dense? fiddly?) hard to remember. This is no doubt a good, even a great, game. I am just not sure how much fun I have playing it. BTW, I randomly chose the Giants and they are no fun.

Obscure theme? Check. Beautiful artwork? Meh. An economy game that shows how fortune can completely screw you over no matter how well you play? Check. Simple, elegant rules and mechanics that make a fun game? Check.

Martin Wallace seems to get a pretty strong reaction from gamers, either positive and negative. I for one like his games because they are fun, flaws and all.
