Yesterday, I had a bunch of people over for a killer birthday bash. We had two tables going most of the day. Started at 9am, finished at 1:30 am. My wife deserves extra praise for suggesting the event and got donuts (Voodoo donuts, which is a special thing in Portland), and made Chili was 15 hungry games.

Here is what we played.

If I missed anything, let me know.

Also, how do you add a link to the people who played in the games so I can list them with a link to their accounts?

I hear this is the "Best Game Ever". We could play it all summer.

Actually, its one of the latest "hot" games in our group. One that I had yet to played. I am sorry I passed when the order for it was placed. Cool auction game with lots of hard decisions.

Sorry Rachel, but we played so that the blank roofs got placed.

I miss playing this, and I missed again. While I was playing Taj Mahal, some other folks played Goa. They played five player too, which I have never seen before, but I heard it went well.

"Die Steven Segal" as some called it.

I have this on my want list, mostly because it is a Stephen Dorra game, but have yet to have played. It was a good one.

I just bought this game. Didn't play yesterday as I was busy tearing my hair out (not much left too) over AoS.

Schrille is fun and chaotic with a cool, gimicky mechanism that you have to see to believe. Not a ton of replayabilty but one I had to own.

Just bought this and one that is getting a fair amount of play in our group just for the silliness factor.

The evening was coming to a close. Joe and David knocked out Le Hav at the other table while five of us played Vegas Showdown. I really like this game. Not complicated, but fun and straight-forward.

While the five of you were finishing up that funny, mean building-block-and-dice game, Ken, Davida and I set up in the sushi business.

She whipped us both with style. Despite that, Ken liked the game enough to admit that he may have to buy a copy.

I initially forgot this one.

I really like it. Needs better bits but the concept is right on the money. Its always good to have a game that plays up to eight.

All it really needs is 88 cards that played in front of each player and you can do away with the pencil and paper.

I would easily play this one again.
