Officially, Neutral Ground is re-opened, and there were at least 7 tables of games running, so there was no way to see everything happening. This group just keeps growing! If you were there, please add any games that were played that aren't on the list.

This very popular game made an appearance in a 4 player game to start off the night.

After some indecision and deliberation, five of us eventually started a game of Saboteur. One of my favorite quick games for a large group, though it worked out fine with 5 players this time.

One of my favorite Knizia games came out again. This could be more popular than Settlers lately.

I pulled this out after having it sit for a long time. now I remember I meant to have a calculator with the game. Took a long time to try to remember the rules, but the other players enjoyed it anyway. I also forgot how fiddly the money can get.

I played two games of this, and it's quite a bit more cut-throat and sped towards the end much faster than it seemed (like Portobello Market).

Neon bugs came out, but started up as I was leaving. Maybe next time, if it starts sooner.

Me, my GF, Steef and one other got to play this. It was close - at the end I thought I had won - in retrospect, the suger-revenue building shouldn't have given me VP and my girlfriend would have won.

After AOE III, 7 of us played this. I was thinking about buying it, but not now. Way too long - even though we only played to seven buildings and one person left halfway through. Steef played, along with someone whose favorite game is Mare Nostrum.

Another group was playing a version of Ticket To Ride - I believe it was the USA version, but I'm not positive.
