Michael usually makes this geeklist, but I'm here to steal his thunder. And his thumbs.

The Boardgamers of Greater Akron (BOGA) meet once a month at the best game store, ever, Underhill's Games in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. These events usually draw at least 60 people and someone always ends up sitting on the ladder at some point (hi, Jay!).

This list serves to organize our plays and cut down on the decision-making time.

So last weekend, I randomly drove out to the WBC to compete in the Age of Steam and Chicago Express tournaments. I learned just how good this game can be by having my ass handed to me a few times.

Denny, Ron and Bob have all expressed an interest in learning this one and I'd be happy to run a learning game.

Denny, Mike and I played a fantastic and very close game of this last night and I would love to give it another go. I feel like I'm close to figuring out a good strategy.

It's been awhile since we've played Power Grid and I'd love to try out the Korea map. The China map was absolutely brutal.

This is likely going to be what I purchase from the store, the Modern Art card game. Modern Art without auctions? Hmm..

Will this be the month where we sit down and learn the takeover rules?! Or will we just be lazy and jump into the game?! It's a given that the Michaels and I are going to pull this out at least twice.

I was just about burnt out on Dominion, and then this came along. I have really enjoyed all the new options available with the new set. What a great game.

I got probably 20 plays in while on vacation with my family. Seen here is a five player game with my brother and cousins...

What would BOGA be without Officer Mike's and my obligatory game of CC:E to start the evening off?

I'd love to play with John later that evening.

I got this game for my birthday. I had no time to read the rules yet, but it looks like something I am going to love. I will need Officer Mike to teach me.

Got this at Origins and still haven't been able to play. Any interest in it? Its not your typical board game (more story-telling based).

The Galicia scenario (10 turns) looks like something playable within a couple of hours. On this one I have read the rules and almost believe I could play a game without having someone to teach me the rules.

I've been meaning to try all of the top ten on the geek. This one is next on my list. I know the basic rules but, again, a more knowledgeable person willing to teach the game might help my small group that I drag along immensely. Let me know if you're interested.

Oh, I almost forgot this one. This is a great wargame/eurogame hybrid. I know that folks who enjoy 'Shogun' or 'Wallenstein' will enjoy this one as well. Short rules, lots of fun!

I've been reading about this game and I think I'd like to try it. I've seen it played at Underhill's before, but I'm not sure if someone brought it or if it was a demo copy.

Anyone else interested in trying this?
