Last week, I posted a list of games we intended to play at CottageCon 2008. Instead of the planned four players, we were three, so the choice of games was reduced to three-player, or two-player while one player sat idle, slept or engaged in day-long setup.

We brought and cooked our own food. I had bought jambon blanc for supper on Friday and served it with a potato salad I had made, I took care of breakfast, with thick-cut bacon, shredded (leftover) ham with potatoes, sausages, and eggs. Larry did the lunch on Sunday (baby ribs with vegetables cooked on the BBQ) and Jack BBQ'd chicken on Saturday. We had bought a deep dish apple pie at the village store on the way up, so we had dessert both nights.

Hopefully, CottageCon 2009 will have more in attendance.

Although we were there to play wargames, we did find this a light and pleasant diversion and engaged in playing it four times.

Jack and Larry played this one five times after I had gone to bed and they had found a deck of cards.

Jack spent hours setting this up on Saturday and we only played a half-turn (Soviet) on Sunday.
