This Geeklist chronicles some of the many games played at this weekly meeting of the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society.

The Columbus Area Boardgaming Society (CABS) is a club dedicated to boardgaming in central Ohio. The club started as a group of 15 friends back in 1997. Since then, CABS has grown to over 400 members with meetings almost every weekend. Our members play everything from Eurogames to Wargames to light family games. Our club also maintains a library of over a thousand games, which members can "check-out", just like any public library.

Come visit us at a weekly meeting. Your first meeting is FREE!

On June 13, 1966, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Miranda v. Arizona that the police must inform suspects of their rights before questioning them. This is why, when you play Police Precinct this weekend, you need to remember to read the suspects their Miranda rights as you bust them.

Don't forget the paperwork of your arrests -- list your games on this week's Geeklist!

*sigh*

Is this the barest shell of a game with some Archer quotes plastered on top of it, Barry?

Yes it is, Other Barry. Yes it is.

Not a bad game. It helps if you avoid a strategy that puts you hopelessly in last place with little chance of digging your way out. cry

5-player with the expansion. I think the expansion makes this a much more interesting game, but I still don't like it very much. Entirely too little ability to plan.

I decided not to retire undefeated in this game. Now I have two plays and it's impossible for me to retire undefeated.

The first loss wasn't so bad. But the second game set the tone for the day. There I am pushing my units forward. . .and find my staring at a solid wall of medium and heavy units. Ack! Run away! They eventually caught.

This game is so good. I managed to spring out to a sizeable early lead as the amphibians, but the insects and arachnids ganged up on me. I tried to ride the coat-tails of the mammals, who were all over the place, but the bugs got to them too. Bug planet.

The last two parts came up on the same tile, right next to the exit. But we were buried in sand the same turn we found the last part.

3players, difficult level. We manage to squeak out a win by the exact count! 20 slaves freed, the plantation overflow filled exactly to the top (with all plantations exactly full at end of game) and the final support token bought on the next to last turn. Nail biter.

Richard Borg is coming to Buckeye Game Fest in September. So we played what is now being billed as the loudest game at CABS. And we did it in the boardroom, so as to isolate the loudness. In the first game, I won without losing a die. In the second game, I was not the one who was eliminated before anyone else lost a die.

I managed my shipping company very well and got 2 of 3 management bonuses. What I did not manage to grasp (until it was too late) is that a well run company does not necessarily mean money in my personal bank... personal money is what counts for winning.

This game I mass together a large army. . . and then never see the cards to use it. I did something horribly wrong there.

I played Sentinels, and when we were done, I got up, walked 5 feet, then sat down at another table where they were playing Sentinels. I bet there are support groups out there for people like me. We did defeat Akash'bhuta and Baron Blade, so there's that.
