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.

We were doing pretty well at first. We cleared the first two floors without much difficulty or time, but the paranoid architects that designed the third floor had two keypad doorways just outside the laser security at the top of the stairs.

And Craig hid in the wrong closet, as it was apparently the one where the security guard kept his donuts because he walked right in there and banned him.

We lost.

Another good game. I wasn't sure about trying it - I had some vague idea it was a heavy game, or more wargame-ish than it is. It turned out to be fairly light-weight but with a lot of hard decisions.

Teaching scenario in preparation for the BIG GAME in May. Even though my beloved Hatti were brought low by epidemic and famine on the same turn, I look forward to the playing real, all day long game thing.

this is a heavy economic Euro set in the Meiji era of Japan, and it can be difficult to figure out how to play it. It's available on boargamearena.com and I've played several online games there, but this was my first real cardboard run through. The oddity of taking a worker to take an action rather than placing a worker and thus blocking that slot is quite different and means you have to keep plotting and scheming since everyone can do everything you can do. The countdown mechanic to end the game can be quite uncharitable, even if you think you plan well.

Ron and I played a very tightly contested 2-player game. Came right down to the wire at the end with me snagging a 2 point victory.

This and Viticulture-EE are the only 2 games that I rate a 10 on BGG. Very, very fun. If you want to try them sometime, either Ron or I are happy to teach.

This is a pretty good game! For me it hit the sweet spot between strategy and tactics - you need to plan 4-5 turns out to build up for really big moves, but yet you still have to react immediately to opportunities - and to being blocked (accidentally or deliberately) by your opponents. I liked it a lot!

Thanks for teaching, Dan!
