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!

July 7 was the birthday of Stephen Buonocore, the founder of Stronghold Games. Celebrate by playing one of the many quality games published by Stephen. I'm going to try to play a game of Survive: Escape from Atlantis. But you may prefer Kanban, Diamonds, or Panamax.

Let us know which Stronghold Games game you played this week on the Geeklist!

Played the new stand-alone expansion! New characters, new items, 3 mix-and-match modules!

Taught this to a guest who was visiting with my daughter. Jeff C. Joined us, too. 2 of the four of us won.

This game is one of my 100 game challenge games.

I got this game as a Father's Day gift, but this was the first chance I have had to puzzle out the rules. Great game!

We're hunting for good 2-player games that are readily available and not expensive. I need to find something for my older son and his girlfriend, as right now their "game nights" consist of Phase 10 Dice.

I played this a few times years ago and recall not liking it, but it's pretty popular so my other son and I decided to try it out.

Final conclusion: I still don't like it.

Played a prototype of a magic potion brewing game. Seemed to be a lot of work, but it didn't feel fun to me. Can't quite put my finger on why.

This was my second pick of a 2-player game to try. Son and I agreed, we both liked it more than Lost Cities, so I brought it home. Older son tried it, but wasn't taken by it - but my wife thinks its fun! (And cute, she kept playing with the totem toppers and threatening to draw eyes on them.)

Last game of the night. This was my second game of Xia, and it's growing on me, but I sense some issues - primarily the randomness, but also it feels like there's an imbalance in the combat system. Still, it was a lot of fun to play. I just haven't been convinced to put down the money to buy my own copy.
