Attandance was around 40 players. These were some of the games played during 2008 May BOGA-night:

"Come in and join the fun on the second Friday of each month! Come join the rest of the Boardgamers of Great Akron (BOGA) for a fine evening in boardgames! Bring your favorite games to play and we also have a large selection of demo games for you to try!

Inspired by CABS in Columbus, Underhill's Games in Cuyahoga Falls has graciously agreed to host for us on the 2nd Friday of every month from 6pm - 2am (or later if still going strong at that time).

The store is big with plenty of open gaming space and has snacks and drinks available. Plus there's a Donatos right across the street and McDonalds next door if snacking just won't cut it. The store also has a large selection of demo copies of games that we can play. There's no entry fee. So just mark your calendar and let's all meet and play together!

What to bring:
Nothing is required, but you may want to bring your favorite games and a little cash for some food and drinks.

Visit Underhillsgames.com for directions. Tell all your friends! See you there."


Please add games you played and comment as you wish! Thank you.

This was a quick starter for me and Ron early in the evening before everyone else arrived. Ron blasted my right out of the sky with his Sopwith Camel.

After that, I joined a 4-player game of Zombies. I am always willing to try something new.

While waiting for longer games to break up, I hosted a game of 'Edel, Stein & Reich' for 5 players. I am really beginning to enjoy this game more and more. It plays so fast with an extremely low amount of downtime. Of course, you have to like blind-bidding games.

BTW: I finished last.

Played as a 4-player while waiting for longer games to break up. This is always fun. John managed to get 'Ingenious' in all colors!

Finally, the game I was dying to play this evening with Ryan and John. We started off a little bit slow, as we still had to clarify some of the rules on the go. Gosh, I have played this 3 times now but I can never remember the differences between external and internal conflicts. This happens because there is too much downtime between two games of T&E.

I won a crushing victory after we realized that that game had already ended a couple of turns earlier...

Quick filler with Ryan and John while waiting for Craig and Mitch to finish 'Pillars of the Earth'.

The other 'meaty game' I was looking forward to play this BOGA-night. We had a 5-player table, starting at midnight. We used John's copy with the excellent English post-ups on the event cards. John and I explained the rules. I had played 'Shogun' before and had read up on the 'Wallenstein' rules earlier this week.

For me, this was the highlight of the evening. 'Wallenstein' is everything they say it is. Once the rules are explained, it really plays very fast (we finished in about 3h with teaching 3 new players). There is not much downtime, except when waiting for Craig to pick his actions. snore

I mismanaged my grain and gold harvesting and initiated two revolts in my provinces. One of them was taken over by the peasants!

I finished a solid third place with following score:

1st Scoring (Final Scoring):
Craig - 16 (41)
John - 15 (42)
Mike - 16 (37)
Mitch - 17 (32)
Ryan - 11 (29)

Always again! My personal highlight of this BOGA-night:

8. Board Game: Shadows over Camelot [Average Rating:7.15 Overall Rank:319]

Shadows over Camelot

We had full membership for King Arther and his noble knights and had a great time, although we played the traitor rules the card did not get drawn so we won with no traitor present, and we actually managed to complete the grail quest for the win!

This was a great time with lots of people in attendance I will definitely be attending these meetings again.

Underhills games is a great local game store with a fantastic selection of demo games, highly recommended.

I arrived a little later than normal since I traveled home all day from my week vacation in Hilton Head. The weather and beach were great in HHI, but it was excellent to get back in time for BOGA.

I had been wanting to play Kingsburg for a couple months and finally had my chance. I kicked off my evening by playing this game with a couple of dedicated CABS gamers that came all the way up from the Columbus area to join us - Scot and Nate. Ryan and Mitch also joined me in getting beat up by the CABbies who taught it to us.

I really liked this game and can't wait to play it again and hopefully do a little better now that I know what I'm doing in it.

Played this game with Nate, Scot and Mitch. I thought I had this one until the last round when Scot passed me up and got me by a point or two!
