The Upstate Board Gamers had their final 'official' game day this past Saturday at the local library. We had a decent turnout (20 or so people and a few visitors curious to know what were were doing - including 2 old ladies who thought it was really cool that we were playing games).

I had a great time (even though I only played 2 games) and I hope everyone else had a good time.

To get more info on our group visit our site -

Our previous session reports can be seen via this tag -

Here is what was played and I know there are games I've missed so feel free to add and correct!

Well, Robert had a brand new copy that needed playing so 5 of us gleefully joined the game and had a great time.

This game is absolutely beautiful. The detail in the pieces are incredible. I had a great time and made only a couple critical mistakes (mental note: put the mobilize order token *on* the planet you want to go to not the one you are one. hehe)

The only Terran (Bryan) player ended up winning the game via their special victory conditions.

Edited - British lost. Germans won. I forgot that Tim was a master of shooting down British planes that dark and not-so-sleepy night.

thanks for the correction! surprise

8 players. One eliminated in round 1 (sorry Matt!). One eliminated in round 2 (there goes Scooter!) and the Sheriff (Robert) laid the smack down on the last outlaw (Jeremy).

Who says evil triumphs?

Billy was kind enough to teach me this game, and with two hours to go, we made it through four turns. That happens to be the EXACT amount of time it takes to hook someone into the game, as I am now eager to play a full game.

Lawson, Russ, and I played a quick game of Quicksand. Russ played some sort of mind-zap on the game, only allowing me to draw two cards of my own color for the whole game, while getting green all the way to the temple for the victory. It was a fun little game.

I taught this one to Cliff and Billy in the short amount of time Cliff had left at the event. He made short work of us, collecting the fewest points for the win.

I played this with Jacqueline while a game of Downfall of Pompeii was going on. As I think is virtually always the case in this game, Jack was caught.
