This was my second year attending Geekway, and it was even better this year than last year! It was crazy how many more people there were, but they had sufficient extra space it didn't feel too crowded. I attended with my parents and sister (who came last year too) as well as my brother and cousin both of whom I hadn't seen in 5 and 7 years respectively. Plus, I had a local friend who was there too, though I didn't see her a super lot.

Part of what makes Geekway awesome is that you only pay around $40 for a four day pass, and you get a random free game with registration! This was my free game which I've never heard of and still don't know much about as I was distracted by other shiny games at the con and have yet to crack the shrink wrap. They let you pick different random games if you pick up your badges as a group, but as my cousin arrived the next day, she ended up getting this same game. Eventually, I will look more into it. If anyone reading this has played this game, please comment with some info about it for me!

This is my sister's free game. Once again, it is one I know nothing about. So if you know/like it feel free to tell me about it in comments! It doesn't really look like our cup of tea from just the box. We don't really play many Ameritrash games, and are not super fond of straight fighting games which is what I get from the name/box cover. I could be completely wrong about it though and plan to give it a deeper look eventually (at least read more about it on BGG anyway).

This was my dad's free game. He on the other hand, is far more into war/fighting games, so I think he is pleased with it. (He and my brother played Axis and Allies a bunch when I was growing up). As I said above, my sister and I had no interest in it (and neither did my mom) so we were very grateful my brother was there to play it with him.

This was my brother's free game, another one I'm ignorant about. But I brought it home with me to look into, because he couldn't fit it in his suitcase to fly home. So it temporarily belongs to me anyway.

We are semi-local to the convention, but not close enough not to get hotel rooms. Last year, we tried for cheaper rooms at a close place, but that didn't go well so this year we got rooms at the convention hotel which made things lots smoother and were a lot nicer. We arrived at the con between 10 and 11am on Thursday. On our first perusal of the library, my sister grabbed this lovely out of print game that we play on Yucata often and would really like to find a copy of to own. My parents had learned it last year at the con, and so they started a game with my sister and brother. Later I swapped in for my brother because he went to listen to a presentation about game design. My father ended up winning the game.

I didn't start out playing Glen More because in the library this had caught my eye. I am a big fan of Uwe Rosenberg (I love Agricola and Glass Road and enjoy all other games I've played by him including Caverna, At the Gates of Loyang, and Bohnanza) and had been interested in this game from what I'd read about it, so wanted to look at it. So I read the rules and set the game up to get a feel for it. This was enough to convince me I wanted to buy it. I packed it back up with out playing because it is a two player game and I wanted to play with more people than that at the con (I play two player games lots at home though, so this is a good buy for me). Sadly, neither of the vendors there had a copy, but I ordered it on Amazon so it was waiting for me when I got home.

Somewhere in the middle of Glen More we had lunch. Last year, we learned we should bring a lot more snacks and food in general because seeking out food lost a lot of valuable gaming time. So, this year as well as snacks we also brought sandwich fixings which we used each of the four days for lunch saving a ton of time and money!
After Glen More was finished we all 5 played Sentinels, which we had brought with us since my dad really likes it and I wanted to teach it to my brother as he loves super heros and I thought he'd really like it too. I played Argent Adept, my mom played Fanatic, my brother picked the Indestructible Bunker, my father was Mr. Fixer, and my sister was Expatriette. We fought Akash'bhuta in the Tomb of Anubis. We got her down to 100/200 hitpoints before we were soundly defeated. It was very fun!

After Sentinels we got supper from Trainwreck Saloon, one of the restaurants by the hotel. Then my mom and sister left to pick my cousin up from the airport, and my dad, brother and I played this. It is another game my father I had played before on Yucata so we only had to teach it to my brother. It was very close in the end, but my brother won by a few points. Lucky him, it took me several plays before I managed to win this game for the first time online.

My cousin's flight was delayed, so while my sister and mom were still at the airport, next my father, brother and I tackled this game my brother had picked up in the library because he likes Neil Gaiman. It took us awhile to set up and figure out what we should be doing as none of us had played before. Then we only played through a few rounds. We did figure out what we were doing, but it wasn't really what my brother had been expecting when he picked it up and we were all getting tired so we just went ahead and picked it up. (I was losing, so not that sad about stopping )

My cousin, mom and sister finally got back to the con hotel around 9pm, and A Study in Emerald was wrapped up around 9:30. As it was too late for my cousin to register for the con, I went up to the hotel room I shared with her and my sister and it was awesome to see her for the first time in quite a few years! We lived in the same town for much of my childhood, so are really close but were bad about keeping in touch when we moved apart, so spent a good 3-4 hours just catching up. It was after 2:30 before I finally fell asleep (it takes me awhile to get used to new ambient noises and beds). There was no Munchkin played that night, but it is a game we played together a lot growing up.

Despite staying up late Thursday night, we got up at 8am so as not to miss out on gaming time (and our pick of table space!)
The first order of business Friday morning was to get my cousin registered (after a coffee run to the nearest Starbucks to wake her up some! none of the rest of us are coffee drinkers). Then she, my sister and I started the day playing Two by Two, another game my sister and I knew from Yucata. It was a nice close game, but I ended up with the my first win at the con!

My parents and brother were slower starters, so after we finished Two by Two, my sister and I proceeded to teach our cousin this. It is one of our favorite games, so we brought our own copy from home to play. My father arrived after we had started and was disappointed but I told him he could play in the next game. My cousin expressed doubt as to wanting to play twice in a row. (Hah! I knew she would want to). By the time we were finished and my cousin had won, she was indeed hooked and we did play a second game right away with my father. He and I tied for second place in that game.

My brother signed up for a tournament of this that started at noon Friday. As he didn't know the game, once he came down Friday morning he checked this out of the library and found someone to teach him the basics before the tournament started. He ended up winning his first game in the tournament but lost the second.

There was a slight shopping break and this was one of the games we picked up on Friday from the dings and dents section of the Miniature Market table. For half off ($15) I figured it was a good buy buy because we love the crayon rail games and this looked like a faster one which is nice when we have less time. I looked at it, and it will be fun, I'm just wayyy to experienced to ever want play with the simpler rules provided for teaching people new to the series.

This was also in the dings & dents for half off. Talisman is a game that we don't play often, but I love it because of childhood nostalgia of third edition, and always enjoy it when we do get it to the table. I like the alternate endings that come in expansions because of how they change things up and look forward to trying out the ones in this expansion.

My cousin really wanted to play any version of Munchkin, and this was the first we found, so we grabbed it and went back to our hotel room to play it as we were tired from staying up late the night before. (My parents and brother were still playing Ora et Labora). It was a version of Munchkin I'd never played, I found the seven seals as a way to end the game interesting, and won the game by opening the seventh seal and having the highest attack bonuses.

My brother checked this out of the library and really wanted to play it with all of us, so Saturday morning we started out with it. It was ok, it reminded me of Munchkin really just more complicated. Mostly I didn't like that it took so long with 6 people. We ended up cutting it short and my cousin was ahead at the end.

My cousin REALLY wanted to play this 'cause she loves the show. She had to leave early Sunday morning, and I knew this was long so that is part of why we cut the other game short. I've been interested in it, and my brother loves the show too, so the three of us set out to play. We started around 11:30 and um, 5 hours later my brother accomplished the first goal on the scenario recommended for the first game. It was a ton of fun, but around 3 we decided that we were stopping after the first (of 3!) goals was met. I had bad luck and lost a lot of my crew to reavers (multiple times...) so I was definately in last. My cousin could have completed the goal, but she kept having bad luck and rolling one less that what she needed to to beat her skills tests at the end. This is the one game I played that I am a little sad I didn't buy and I really want to get it eventually. However, I am in a bit of a new games coma atm. Maybe for my bday in a couple months, or perhaps xmas I will get it.
