Attandance was really strong. These were some of the games played during 2009 April BOGA-night:

"Come in and join the fun on the second Friday of each month! Come join the rest of the Boardgamers of Great Akron (BOGA) for a fine evening in boardgames! Bring your favorite games to play and we also have a large selection of demo games for you to try!

Inspired by CABS in Columbus, Underhill's Games in Cuyahoga Falls has graciously agreed to host for us on the 2nd Friday of every month from 6pm - 2am (or later if still going strong at that time).

The store is big with plenty of open gaming space and has snacks and drinks available. Plus there's a Donatos right across the street and McDonalds next door if snacking just won't cut it. The store also has a large selection of demo copies of games that we can play. There's no entry fee. So just mark your calendar and let's all meet and play together!

What to bring:
Nothing is required, but you may want to bring your favorite games and a little cash for some food and drinks.

Visit Underhillsgames.com for directions. Tell all your friends! See you there."

Please add games you played and comment as you wish! Thank you.

Played this with Larry, Jessica, Terry, David and ??? (sorry - I suck at names) on the German board. Larry ended up winning by monopolizing the blue section and kicking all of our butts. Good game!

This was brought out and we played in a 7 player game. Very fun! Larry won again (I think he cheats ). I really wish this one wasn't OOP, its a nice filler game.

At this point I had to go, but the place was packed with others playing. Anyone else want to post?

Attendance . . . strong . . . yeah, I had to sit on a ladder for an hour!

Thanks go out to the guys who taught me to play Agricola - tip of the hat to John who was the eventual winner and sat to my right (so I can't even argue that he mopped up on my rookie mistakes).

Special recognition to Craig - who sat to my left and mopped up on all my rookie mistakes and was still gracious enough to let someone else win.

Michael and I played a two player game of Wasabi. Neither of us finished our 5 item one. I had 3 wasabi cubes and he had 2 so I just barely won because I had more style.

Played a three player game twice. This was my first time with the expansion so there was quite a bit to take in at first. I enjoyed the game but I certainly need to work on improving how I play the games in order for me to be competitive.

I think the 13 Ra tile was used once in this 4 player game. I did ok but not great. This is one of my favorite games but I think I like it a little more at the end of an evening rather than in the middle.

This was my first non-solo game of Pandemic and I enjoyed it. I've taught it to my parents now as well. We lost but just barely in this 3 player game.

4 player game. I thought I was doing fine but I had an extemely low score. My biggest problem is if someone takes what I was going to do I don't have a good back up plan ready. I would personally like to try the family version a couple of times until I get used to this game.

After finishing Agricola with Denny, me and Grant tought Brendan and Mitch how to play Le Havre. As during the whole BOGA gamenight, I was doing terrible! At one time, I had to take out 7 (!) loans, which I eventually repaid with the help of the generous local courts (twice). Both Brendan and Mitch seemed to like this one and are willing to play again.

Final score:

Grant (151)
Michael (128)
Brendan (81)
Mitch (43)

Kicked off my night by helping teach this old classic to a couple of people. They caught on quicker than I wanted them to, though and took it to me. Ouch!

I totally forgot about this one, but Nicky and her husband/boyfriend (I forget his name) taught me and one other guy how to play this. I kind of ran away with my score, but that was mostly because I had this uncanny ability to build a very large ship in a very short time (which came in handy to carry cargo and fend off boulders and such).

This is a really neat game. Problem is - its $75 and totally outrageous on the pricing side. I gotta save up a lot of dough for this one. But a fun game nonetheless.

Me and the lady friend had to play this one at the counter while the rest of our friends showed up. Attendance was so strong there wasn't an available table for quite a while.

Had fun, if I ever see a copy of this on the shelf I'll grab it. It's nice to see a fun game take less than 30min.
