Another great game day with 25+ players at Guardian Games in sunny Portland, Oregon. We had a great time and lots of great games were played.

Since I just took over for Sam as the organizer (we miss you Sam!), I thought it would be fun to start posting a list of games that were played. (I might miss a few... if I missed a game you played, add it to the list.)

If you live in or near Portland, or you are just passing through, we have an amazing game community here. You can find lots of great gaming events by going to the Portland Gamers Meetup group here:

Our next Guardian Game Day will be November 16th. See you there!

Hmmm, I definitely need to play this again. So many games... so little time.

One copy, many plays. Looking at the game comments from yesterday, it looks like this is as good as the hype: Dominion got 9+ ratings from all those who tried it yesterday.

I got this in a Math Trade months and months ago but never had a chance to play. I finally found the time to read the rules and was able to try it yesterday. Very interesting, and very enjoyable. And while I would happily play it again, Imperial is still the King of the Rondel for me.

OMGLeHavre! A huge thanks to Jennifer for bringing and teaching this great game.

I loved it, but unlike Agricola that I knew was a 10 for me the first time I played, I'll need a few games before I'm sure where I'd rate this. I think to appreciate the depth of the game one really needs a pretty strong sense of how the buildings work together which is something that just couldn't happen on the first play.

Another point that we all seemed to agree on: this probably shouldn't be played with 5. Nevertheless, it was one of those games that kept me up at night thinking about it, and that is pure gamer bliss. I cannot wait to get another chance at it!
