This is the ninth year my friends and I have spent four days in the Rockies drinking, gaming and acting like fools. Two couldn't make it due to work but we had a new attendee. Thanks to MrFreshly for creating original shots all weekend (the "Rusty Hole" and "Whisteling Midget" were a couple of STRONG favorites) and to the rest of the guys for making this year another success.

I gave away a custom set of Pickomino dice from Chessex to the person who could tell me what games the letters came from. Glookose was the victor. Congrats Ian!



Fiends attending this year were:

Wednesday - Travel Day for boot2daHead and MrFreshly

The Gathering is Thursday - Sunday but my friends Mike and Chris always come a day early and we usually get a game or two in. We started the festivities with a game of Quilt Show. My wife thought it was pretty funny to hear three grown men going on and on about making quilts and showing them. I thought the game was just OK.

After Quilt Show we played a game of Catan. Like many here, this was my first euro and got the three of us interested in board games. I don't play this often but I still enjoy it and this was no exception.

The Gathering starts on Thursday but my buddies Chris and Mike always come out on Wednesday. This year we, and others from the group, went to an "Escape Room" here in Denver. You and your friends get locked in a room and you have all sorts of puzzles to solve to escape. There are tactile puzzles and word puzzles and lots of drawers with padlocks on them. As you solve puzzles, you get the combinations for the locks, which open drawers and boxes that have more clues in them. Our room was called "Pikes Peak or Bust: Colorado's Gold Rush." We were in the cabin of Green Russell and we had to solve the clues to find his gold. This last box of gold also had the combo for the door to escape. We had 60 minutes to do it but we managed to get out in around 45 minutes. We currently hold 3rd place for the quickest exit. Once you finish they take a picture of you wearing goofy hats for their facebook page. A good time was had by all.

Thursday - Day One

One of the things some of us like to do is put together swag bags. We do a lot of shots...a LOT of shots, so we always get custom shot glasses with the years logo on them. This year Jeff bought the shot glasses. I'm not an artist by any means but I thought this years logo for the shot glasses turned out pretty good. Thanks for the shot glasses Jeff!



I also bought everyone hats and my prize table game was a copy of Liars Dice with custom logo dice from Chessex and a bag with the logo on them as well. I usually don't spend this much money but I thought year 10 was worth the expense! There were a few other things in the bag like really cool, fold up dice trays for traveling and dice. You can see the dice trays in some of the photos on this list.



Skippen also bought us all really nice rocks glasses for whiskey that had the date and a big X for year 10. He also brought a bottle of whiskey from a local Denver distillery so we could use them. TASTY! Thanks Skippen!



Here we are doing our first shooter of the weekend.

The Gathering of Fiends was created when I heard about Alan Moon's Gathering of Friends and thought it would be a fun way to keep in touch with my friends once I moved to Colorado. One of the things I loved when hearing about it for the first time was the prize table. So each year we all bring one big box game and one small game and then play a game to see who gets first pick. The winner gets first pick of the big box game but the loser gets first pick of the small games. This year we played VivaJava as it accommodates 8 people.

My friend Dave Jones ordered this for his web shop TimeWellSpentGames.com for someone and I saw it on his site and thought it looked like a fun filler so I grabbed one of the extra copies he ordered. It's basically Yahtzee but you have a board with different outcomes (Full House, Yahtzee, 3 Of A Kind, etc...) and you place houses on the spaces and try and get 4 in a row for the win. There's a few wrinkles to it but that's it in a nutshell. I liked it quite a bit.

The next game played was a game called Witness. You play it with four people and there's a case that is read. Each of you have a booklet with details that only you know. Then you whisper your clues to the people on your left and right and then there are three questions asked about the clues you passed. It's like "Telephone." It was pretty fun and the cases are only 15 minutes long. We didn't score very well though.

We always play Cards Against Humanity each year but Jeff went through his cards and picked a bunch to use with Telestrations. It was pretty hilarious and a good way to wrap up day 1. I would mention some of it but I might get banned from the Geek. (A drawing of a horse doing that is just wrong. 'Nuff said)



The cabin has a glass table in the living room that is apparently possessed by a demon. The guys kept tearing up their shins on it until it was moved.

Friday - Day Two

A few years ago we all decided to cook all of our meals but one. Friday morning we always go to local restaurant for breakfast. It snowed all day Thursday the cards needed to be dug out.



After breakfast I played some more Castro. I took the picture while our buddy Skippen stood by. It was probably 10:00am and MrFreshly was already making shots. whistle

In the other room Skippen opened his copy of Lewis and Clark. It was apparently packed with explosives because when he went to back-bend the board to flatten it, the thing broke into four pieces.

I really like short, light dice games. Rolling Japan came out last year I believe and has a similar feel to Qwixx and Extra! I like that people can make their own maps for this game. In this picture you can see one of the soft, roll up dice trays I bought for this years attendees.

I played this once before when it was Himalaya. I think I prefer the pick up and delivery of items in that game than the reprint.

I read about Deep Sea Adventure and was pleasantly surprised that I could buy it from Japan and shipping was only $5. In this game you're sharing one air supply while diving down for treasures. The deeper you go, the better they are. You roll two dice for movement but they only go up to 3 so the best roll you can have is 6. You have to subtract the number of treasure tiles you're carrying from your movement. So if you have two treasure tiles and roll a three, you only move one space. It's rather hard to make it back to the sub and we all ran out of air during the first turn. I really enjoyed this one!

I've been hearing about Trains for a while now and managed to trade for a copy. Jeff brought his copy of Trains: Rising Sun and I was dismayed to learn the route cards in Rising Sun aren't present in the first Trains game. I really enjoyed it though. I wish the company would put out the route cards as a single item for Trains owners.

A running gag we had was every game Ian played took four hours. This one seemed to run pretty long but I wasn't in it. I'm not a big fan of Arkham Horror so I stayed out of this.



Played By: Ian and then I don't know as it wasn't marked down

Winner: Group lost
