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!

A fun iteration of the game, and it's in Germany, which always gives it a boost for me. Good stuff.

Raising money to end cancer because those with cancer have better things to do.

It ain’t Lorenzo, but still a very nice game with quicker play.

CABS was formed as an alternative to all the places to play Magic and all the places to play RPGs that existed at the time. Those places still exist, but now there are lots of places to play board games, too. Occasionally, cabbie find an excuse to play Magic at CABS. In this case it was Unstable. It's a relatively new set that, like Unglued that came before, has silly creatures, silly effects, metagaming, and just generally lots of stuff that has no place in "serious" Magic. So let's have a draft! I block your attack with my Adorable Kittens, and the attacking creature is destroyed. Oh my, my creature was sent to jail; I have to roll doubles to get him out. Fortunately I have an artifact that helps me with die rolls.

After a long, long layoff I really lost touch with how to make an engine for this game, but I do at least think I understand how the mechanics flow together. Perhaps a few more plays and I could compete. Cool game.

We lose the first game, neither Sean and I even call Tichu once. Then our manhood gets questioned and we have a smashing victory.

Wanted to try the new Ruhr Valley expansion, but with two new players I opted not to. Next time!
