Here are the games I played at Geekway 2015!

This was my second Geekway and definitely NOT my last!
What a blast the whole weekend was.
I mostly hang out with my Stone Spiral group and my extended
Immer group. But I also venture out and get in some games
I've been wanting to play when I see them available.

Next year I'll be ready for doing some volunteer work at Geekway 2016.

Major kudos to the organizers and volunteers. This is such a well run
weekend. I couldn't tell that there were 200-300 more people this
year over last.

First game I played at Geekway 2015!

It was almost like Steve was standing there waiting for us.
When we walked into the play and win room he was there with it in his hands.
Played with Steve, Jyoti, Marc and Adam.
Steve seems to be a master at this one, and he showed it again.

Played Celina's copy but with Jyoti. Celina was busy
at the time. I've been wanting to play this and had asked Celina
to bring it. Thanks Celina! But you still owe me a game.
I still want to play it with the master!

In the Play and Win room which was a nice addition to this year's Geekway.
Played with Jyoti, Rebecca and Matt. While playing we analyzed the need
for different sized peppers for color blind players.
Geeky talk at Geekway. Go figure.

Matt, Rebecca and Jyoti again, a core set of the Stone Spiral group.
I'm getting the hang of this one. I like it a lot. I almost had my engine
cranking on the markets but came up just short.

Brian introduced me to this one.
It was late and I wasn't paying a lot of attention to the
special powers on some of the cards. Nice game though.

Wow!

Played with Jyoti, Matt and Becky. Luis was very kind to teach us the game.
I was the ghost. The ghost can be very challenging but is a lot of fun.

Great game.
We have already ordered a copy...

Played with Jyoti, Adam, Steve and Becky.
Adam was rules guy. We really screwed ourselves in the first
round by letting a lot of our families get killed off.
From then on it was doom, doom, doom.

Probably deserves another play but it didn't catch me on a first play.

Been wanting to try this and Steve brought it and was kind
enough to teach us. Played with Becky, Jyoti, Adam and Steve.
Steve won, of course, but I was a close second and except
for a bonehead play in a late round I might have won.

Again wow!

This time played with Matt, Eliza and Jyoti.
Slightly different rules than the first. Apparently different
people have interpreted the rules differently.
This time was actually closer to the real rules.
Jyoti was ghost this time.

Friday. Twice.

Matt C. got this as his freebie and was eager to give it a try.
Jyoti and I taught it. Adam joined us for a second game.
He had also gotten it as his freebie.

Twice.

Each time we play this with someone different, we play by different rules.

Filler before dinner. Does that make it an appetizer?

With Matt C. and Jyoti.

Last game on Friday.

Played with Matt C., Nick and Rebecca. Nick was impressive in
reading the rules while he played Keyflower earlier in the day.
And then taught us from one reading of the rules.

Ugh.

None of us had played before. Long. Lots of details.
Overly complicated. Often cruel.

Don't need to play again.

First time I have played this.
I've been wanting to play it for a while now.
2-player with Gary whom I had never met before.
Big highlight: Michael and Jackie(?) taught us the
game and spent a lot of time with us. I'm always impressed
with the people who see your "Teacher Wanted" sign and come
and spend the time and effort.

One of my hightlights of Geekway 2015.

I taught and pseudo played this with Becky, Steve, Marc and Steve.
Got about halfway through the 1st case and we decided it was going
to take too long to do it justice. And it was very noisy so hard
to hear clues and discussions.
We own the game so we can bring it out for them another time when
we have a less noisy room.

Another one I've been wanting to play for a while.
I'd seen it on the Immer's shelf and checked it out of the
Library hoping that Steve would teach and play it.
Turns out to be one he really likes.
Played with Steve, Marc and Steve.

Nice game.

Another game I've been wanting to play for the first time.

2-player with Adam (Not L.) in the Play and Win room. We had a first edition
library copy but there was a teacher in the P&W room already with
another game of Viticulture so we plopped down next to them and he
taught us as well.
Another good teaching experience.
