Last year, a friend and I made a deal that we would play at least one dusty, musty old game from our collections at KublaCon. Last year's choice was GDW's "Minion Hunter". The game seemed like a dud at first, but by the end, we beat the game on the very last card. We had a lot of fun so we decided to bring more retro games to Kubla this year.

These are games we played.

I bought this game over a decade ago after hearing the staff rave about it during one of the GenCon SoCal game auctions. It has sat on the shelf ever since so it got tossed into the KublaCon pile this year. It was the first game we played at the convention.

It took a couple of turns for both of us to get into the swing of things. This simple looking game is a brain drainer that impressed us both.

After completing one full game, we decided it was definitely a keeper but we wouldn't attempt it again at this event.

I'm a total sucker for a good old-fashioned Scrabble beat down. We played two rounds, each winning a game. There will be a reckoning in 2016.

I also scored a big lot of Scrabble stuff at the game auction afterwards. Bonus!

We play this every year at KublaCon. It never fails to draw attention when it hits the table. It is my all time favorite miniature game even though it is 25 years old.

This game reeks of old school and screams for a makeover. We got this one set up and played just a couple turns before some other friends wandered up looking for a game to join. We put the wampaging on hold and moved on to a different game.

This one replaced Wabbit Wampage when some friends wandered up after hitting the bar. The game turned into a constant banter of innuendo and inappropriateness about going up and down the beastmen's shaft and the unspeakable horrors in the throne room. I have never laughed so much playing a game. I don't think I'll ever play it again, but it will keep its place on the shelf just for the awesome memories. Good times.

This was the final retro game for the weekend. I ended up being the lone surviving trooper and beat the traitor at the end. I didn't care for the end game mechanics. There wasn't much of a challenge. We agreed to try it again with more players in the future to see if the first impression was accurate.

We blew through a round of this old GW game before calling it a night on Saturday. The verdict is still out so it will get a replay.
