One of my favorite events is SoCalGamesDay, a once every 2 or 3 months gaming event put on in the San Fernando Valley area. I had to leave on the earlier side, but I'd say there was about 60-70 people there.

If you live within driving distance of The Valley then you really need to check it out.

My going away fling, with Winton as my partner, was an honor. Although Winton is a very strong Tichu player, things were NOT going our way, and eventually I had to concede the victory to Tim and Phil.

This was my first games day ever, and Monster Mayhem was my first game! I played as the Mummy, and my special power (the ability to make victims run in a different direction...) wasn't quite special enough to lead me to victory. Can't remember who played the Werewolf, but when I triggered his weakness (causing him to go into a violent rage) it actually helped him devour his victims. I liked the fact that my Mummy was able to ride the subway, but overall the game seemed a little too random, and the event cards were sometimes confusing. Still had fun though!

I had read about this game and wanted to try it. Never played one of these adventure Talisman/Runebound type games so I was excited play. I liked the RPG aspects; building up your character and collecting special items and stuff, but the game (in the beginning at least) seemed kinda repetative without making too much headway. Also, as this was my first gamesday, I was eager to try out lots of new stuff, so maybe that made it seem longer. I'm still on the fence about this genre. I would definitely try it again, or maybe one of the other adventure type games... I've heard Duel of Ages is also really good.

Incan Gold... Comes up as Diamant on the Geek. Anyway, this was a fast press your luck, gambling, type game. I went to Vegas recently, and it felt like this game, 'cept I wasn't drunk during Incan Gold... Whoops.. maybe that shoulda stayed in Vegas.

Played this quick and simple game about bidding for properties with two other people. It was okay... the whacky pictures of various properties were fun. I spent all my $$ on my first bid and then was soundly crushed.

I tought someone Lost Cities. This is one of my wife's favorites - I've played a lot. The end of the deck always comes too soon.
