Geekway wrapped up for me a few years ago. As is tradition, here is a list of the games I played. Not too many new games for me, but a lot of games I had not played in a while.

The Geekway staff and volunteers always put on a great convention, and this year was better than even. Even though they were sold out, it was never really all that crowded. I had friends from out of town arrive on Wednesday, so I'm including those plays as well.

Until next year!

First game of 'Geekway' for me, though it was pre-geekway on Wednesday night (: Played 3 player, had been quite some time since I had played this one - but I enjoy it.

I am enjoying this game quite a bit - it's a good filler, but it feels a bit different than most things. Played twice back to back.

First time playing it, 3 player - we rolled well, had a pretty easy time. Things could go badly quickly with bad rolls. I like how quick and easy it is, but the dice randomness might turn me off from it. We shall see, I'll play it again.

I really like the customizable dice - took a while to sort them all out since I had just opened the game and they are all in one bag. Played 3 player, Fun game for me.

A fun press your luck game, played 3 player, there are a few cards that are really powerful if you get them early, but if people would then deny those people cards, it might work out OK.

4 player, I like the game, but I am finding it hard to teach the scoring mechanics, I just haven't found the right words yet, no matter what examples I use. Anyway, I like the game, pretty art on the cards.

Last game for Wednesday - 4 player Yggdrasil. We were doing pretty good for a while, but then things fell apart quickly, and the loss was triggered when 5 of the 6 bad dudes crossed the first barrier. 'Next time' ... we thought.

Interesting game, enjoy this one quite a bit, and there are some different cards to swap in/out to keep some variety. Played twice back to back.

Broke out the Templeton Rye at this point. We like to keep things classy at Geekway with the plastic cups (and they're easier to transport).

Headed back to the house and played a 4 player game of Yggdrasil. We lost epically when a full bottle of beer was knocked over onto the board. Yes, that was a sign from Loki himself that it was time to go to bed.

Started off Friday with Manila, 5 player I think. First time playing it, pretty good, but I just did amazingly bad. Could not catch a break with the dice ever.

Like to break this one out with new people, because the fact that there is a game about waiting in line in Poland to fill out your shopping list (and the fact it's pretty fun) gets some odd looks.
