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.

Two-player version of 7 Wonders, with a clever way to draft cards using a pyramid-like layout of cards. Taking a card reveals new card option

Shared this with Jeff C. He crushed me.

One of my Hundred Game Challenge games.

very close game. i might have won with science if i took law with the great library. i took strategy instead, and would have won by military, but my opponent used the mausoleum to get some military. in the end he won 62-59.

Had a chance to try this one. 5 was probably too many players,but it was fun. I will definitely play this again. (Maybe then I'll do a better job of shifting into the endgame.)

two games, both using all the new 2nd edition intrigue cards and a few random ones. courtier was a favorite both games, and replace was nice towards the end for turning coins to victory points and handing out curses.

Just the base game, and we played it twice. I got my first win on this game in perhaps ten total plays in the last year. I stay away from it because I just don't seem to be able to figure it out, but tonight, I won, and on a money tiebreaker, at that. The second game I came fairly close to winning, but stalled out at 4 gems and couldn't recover.

Our second play of this expansion, still not using coal, but will next time. I made a bad mistake on turn 1 and it cost me the rest of the game. I guess that's what I get for experimenting and doing it poorly. However, I still really like the sandbox element of the game and managed to complete all three of my rail lines, which I've never managed before.

We played the UK side this time, 4 players, and it's fun. Challenging, which is not something you normally say about TTR, because of the technologies you need to buy and then the technologies you wonder if you should buy. It pays to keep drawing destination tickets, as it's a small board, you only have 35 train cars, and the board fills fast. However, having said that, I took tickets one too many times and got burned on a route.

This expansion, the PA/UK, has to be the best iteration of TTR that I've played, although I need to give Rails and Sails another outing.

Second play of this. Last time was well over a year -- maybe two -- ago. Considering that, I am happy with my score.
