The lower level being closed off really hurt as we were stuck in the balcony area with too little space for all of the people who wanted to play, at one point I saw 5 or 6 people looking for space to even just sit. I hope things get resolved soon so that we have the room to play again. As always, add what you played/saw being played since it's just gotten too big to see them all.

We had a full 4 player game of this great SDJ nominee. I definitely like this better than Zooloretto, and scores were pretty close, with the winner only one gold piece away from the second place player.

We had a 4 player game of this. It's still a very good game, but the game seems to really shine with 5 players.

For the third consecutive session I broke out Citadels. Much fun was had by all in a VERY close game, newcomer Tom narrowly defeated all us vets with a "military" strategy. he won by two points, followed by last sessions winner Rob. I, as always, lost miserable at 4th place. Its the only game I lose consistently that I always enjoy playing

Quick, easy, Co op, tons of fun, and a DEVIL to win. Of the 6 games played, all less than 30 minutes, 2 were won. Moish and I played a 2 player game that we mopped up, but every other game was a real challenge. Looking forward to fighting harder againt the ravaging diseases in the future

A fun game quite similar to Race for the Galaxy, but a bit more complex, with all the positives and negatives that entails. I actually won our game by a landslide and really enjoyed doing it.

Ahh, the Zombie crowd. Saw them breaking out this Zombie Dog game near the end, not sure if it got going or was finished. I'm gonna try to cajole some of them into a game that doesn;t involve the living dead next time

Steef, Zev, James (Jay?), and I got into a great game of this. San Juan has become a bit of an obsession for me, and I think for Steef as well. Steef is the master at this game, but somehow I was able to pull out a win tonight.

When I came in at 6:30pm, I went over to Mark Salzwedel and asked him if he had already played his amazing, soon-to-be-published game, Samsara. He said yes, he had already gotten in a quick two-player game from 6:00 to 6:30.

I forgot, Mark was playing this old classic, probably my first ever Euro before the whole craze began. I've probably lost 3 or 4 copies of this great game over the years.

Steef was playing this before Saboteur. I think I like the purity of this over Zooloretto. Come to think of it, I think I've only seen Zooloretto once at the Meetups.

After Samsara and Scripts and Scribes, Tom, Jessica and I were joined by Stephanie for this brand new, Andy Looney Icehouse game. This game was designed to be the 5th set of rules to be included in the upcoming 3HOUSE Bundle - 3 Treehouse sets packaged with rules for Zark City, Martian Chess, Binary Homeworlds, Black ICE and of course, Treehouse.

This turns out to be a tight, exciting game, which everybody picked up very quickly. At first it seemed that it might drag, but the midgame accelerates into an endgame very elegantly - I don't think any of the games we played topped 15 minutes.

Another Icehouse gem . . .
