This list of games was played between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. the weekend of September 18-19, 2004. Four BGGeeks were in attendance, food and drink were enjoyed, and the whole event was a "catastrophic success". There were even some completed trades.

Chris was definitely the big winner of the night, with his name showing up in the winner's column on many of the big games. When he was chosen as the traitor in Betrayal, it became a point of honor to beat him. Did we? Read on to find out.

This small group of players is an extension of a group that meets at Gamer's Haven in Strongsville, OH, and the group is doing its part to make Cleveland a nice little hotbed of German gaming. One event at a time...

If the members in attendance remember the winners of the games I don't know, please feel free to add them to the list! And, as always, comment away!

We played about 6 games of Werewolf, but one stood out. Nate and Ken were the pair of werewolves, and were not killed, nor were they even mentioned as suspects! Masterful play. I am naming them the winners.

Winner(s) - Nate and Ken

Betrayal was played with a full complement of six players, and we ended up with the "Creature from the Black Lagoon" haunt. The good guys won, with Jennifer beating the creature into submission many, many times. Nate, unfortunately, was killed.

Winner - Jennifer, Bob, Lissa, Nate, Christopher (Yay, it's me!)

I was finally able to get my copy of ElGrande to the table. I loved it, and came in second by one point. Great game, worth of its praise.

Many creatures fought, but only one winner emerged. I believe that winner is unbeaten at this game.

I didn't even see this game played, but I know it's like Tetris meets Pueblo. Looked neat in the box.

This game will act as a stand-in for our 19th game of the day, which Jennifer and I remembered last night. One game of good-ol'-billiards was played.

Winner(s) - Christopher and Becky (Of course, I had the advantage as it was my table, so the win only counts half.)
