This is a summary of the games played in West Denver locations. Several groups (some just a group of friends) contributed to the list of games. Denver Boardgames Meetup, Hearthstone Gamers, Lakewood Boardgames Meetup, and West Denver Gamers are a few of the groups that contributed to this list.
I'm sure I've missed several games, but I'm hoping others will add to this list to cover most of the games played this May.

This game wins as the most played game for May. Despite it taking on average of 4-6 hours to play a complete game (Age A - Age "IV") ... most of the time we were having so much fun playing the game that we didn't notice the time spent playing.

This is 2nd by a small margin from third of the most played game in May. It's pluses are ... it is a fast game (often can play 2-3 games in under an hour), and it is a great challenging cooperative game.

Barely pushed down to third place in most game played in May, is Race for the Galaxy. A very fun game with a great theme, good development, and killer artwork!

An interesting game, but when you can beat others so well by the chance of drawn cards ... it is very difficult to plan out game strategies. The auction process did get tedious after the fourth turn.

[Note this game and the rest of the games are in alphabetical order, only the top three games played got special placement.]

This is a Puerto Rico alternative for certain, but we haven't played it enough to have a good grasp on what works in the game. Our last game was won by the person that built the card allowing them to sell resources in for VP.

A fun light game involving running faster than who you direct the monster towards.

A card game in which you try to be the biggest most powerful hero kicking down doors in the dungeon, while trying to prevent the other players from doing the same.

A great quick game that teaches the capitals ... not intentionally, but you have to find the cities to connect your train routes. Vexation is a great expansion to slow down the game a bit.

"Buy" parts of islands, or Viking meeples ... and earn more gold and VP than the others.
