The Adult Male Slumber Party is a gathering of friends every 3 months that spends an entire weekend gaming and just hanging out. Most of us went to college at either the University of Iowa or for the less intelligent, Iowa State.

We have spread out around the Midwest after graduating. The AMSP gives us all a great reason to get back together and catch up while playing some great games. The group meets in either New London or Waterloo, Iowa. However, friends come from as far as Illinois, Nebraska and Minnesota.

This event was hosted in Waterloo by Adam (D_Nose) and his wife Sara. Our host provided tons of good food. The BBQ pork sandwiches were top notch and the bean dip and chips provided by Tony (Fat Tony) were popular like always! The hospitality was greatly appreciated.

We had 5 geeks attend including: Adam (D_Nose), Dan, Matt aka Chili Bean, Tony (Fat Tony) and myself.

Dan and I arrived at Waterloo early in the afternoon on Friday. After heading out for lunch and catching up some we headed back to start gaming. Adam taught Dan Hive while I was dinking around with getting stuff situated for the weekend. Dan learned quickly and was able to beat Adam.

I had really been itching to play Caylus again and prefer to play it with only 3 players. Dan and Adam were very willing to help scratch this itch for me! We proceeded to have a very tense game that I barely pulled out a win due primarily to my contributions to the castle. Despite it being his first time playing, Dan did very well and finished a close second.

During our game of Caylus, Chili Bean arrived. So after finishing up we played a 4P game of Metropolys. Adam just got this game and none of us had ever played thus we decided to start with the family version. Matt made his presence at the AMSP known quickly with a victory. The game was ok but a bit too simplistic. I would be really curious to try it with the advanced rules and see how it plays. Although I really like that it has 2 rule sets so that it can be adjusted according to the group playing.

This is another game that I have owned for a long while but never managed to get a complete game in. The one time I had tried to play in the past I actually had food poisoning and had to quit halfway through. I hoped this was not an omen for the game and braced myself for the second attempt. This was a very tight game that I ended up with a 1 point victory in (39-38-38-34). I really, really enjoyed this game and would be anxious to play it again.

Adam, Matt and Dan played a game of Rumis Saturday morning. Dan had never played before and was very interested in this game as he had played Blokus. Adam ended up the victor. Dan is now considering building his own oversized version of Rumis in order to begin corrupting, I mean teaching his son to play.

After finishing up Rumis we jumped into a 4P game of Samurai. We were maybe 1/2 way cleared of the board when Matt ended the game by forcing a tie on a piece for the 3rd time. This granted him the victory with 1 majority as the rest of us were tied. A very smart play on his end but it felt like such an incomplete game to me.

The last member of the AMSP, Fat Tony called during our game of Samurai to tell us he would be arriving shortly. While waiting on his arrival we decided to play a quick game of Fairy Tale. The game ended in a 3 way tie for first! The number of close games at this AMSP were really amazing and enjoyable.

Tony arrived during our game of Fairy Tale. With all five of us finally gathered for the AMSP as custom dictates we kicked it off with a game of Bang! As custom apparently also dictates I got the crap kicked out of me and was quickly out of the game. Matt as the Sheriff ended up winning.

We jumped right into a 5P game of AoE: III that Tony was kind enough to bring with him. Staying true to the course for the weekend, this was another very close game. We ended up with an amazing 3 way tie for first between Dan, Tony and myself. I won on the tiebreaker.

We played LOTR with the Friends and Foes expansion twice in a row afterwards. The first game we didn't even make it past Bree due to some horrendous tile draws that saw us get something like 4 straight event tiles. The game may have taken us 20-30 minutes, no joke. Dan made a apt comment "Where the hell are the friends in this!" Several comments were also made about what Sauron had done to poor Frodo that are best not repeated here.

Not to be that easily thwarted we decided to head directly into another game. Alas, the result was much the same. At least this time we made it out of Bree and ended up dying in Isengard I believe. It was a brutal and demoralizing couple of games.

As everyone was in the mood for another cooperative game, we decided to play Adam's recently acquired Garibaldi. There was some initial confusion that our host was offering ice cream but after that was clarified we launched into the game. Adam played Girabaldi and the rest of us did our best to track him down. However, Adam was sneaky and alluded all of us for the victory!

Dan dropped out at that point and headed to bed. We then played a 4P game of Hacienda. Adam ended up crushing us by connecting to a ton of markets with his massive herd of horses. We decided we all played this game being way too nice to each other as everyone scored really high and had big land chains. Perhaps we were still playing cooperative style.

We wrapped up the weekend with another game of Fairy Tale on Saturday night. This was another close game that Adam ended up with a 1 point victory. This brought a sad close to another great AMSP.
