Attendance was brisk. We did very well given that usually we get fewer people on Sunday than we do when we meet on Saturday. I didn't arrive until late in the day and the room was still packed, mostly with familiar faces.Recommend
First appearances for a few games. First time I've seen Forge War played. Copper Country too. In the other direction, was happy to see EastFront played. First time in a long time --- if these geeklists are to be believed, first time in nearly 10 years.
I played Three Kingdoms Redux. Three Kingdoms Redux is a relatively heavy game themed on the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese History and one of the classics of Chinese literature. You use your collection of generals, each of whom has different strengths and special abilities, to try to grow economically and to do some military adventuring. Relatively Euro mechanics, but the actions are a mixture of the standard Euro ones and more military-oriented ones and the point sources also come from a mixture of the two areas. Engaging game, but I'm still not sure it's for me.
Bay Area Games Day is the largest and longest-running regular event for open gaming in the San Francisco Bay Area. We meet every 4-8 weeks at the Los Altos Public Library, 13 S. San Antonio Rd., Los Altos, about 15 miles west (north?) of San Jose.
