In 1979, I and a bunch of friends went to GenCon at the University of Wisconsin Parkside. To defray costs, we camped at a samll private campground nearby. While we enjoyed GenCon, we found we enjoyed camping and gaming at the campground at least as much. We quickly expanded the start date of the camping to the weekend prior to GenCon to get in 4 or 5 full days of gaming, campfires and stories.

When GenCon moved to Milwaukee we continued to camp as it was cheaper, more fun and there was very little hotel space in downtown Milwaukee. Why try to fix something what was not broke? A few years into our annual trip we were informed the campground, Jackson Park, was being sold and we would have to find alternate camping the following year. None of us were from southern Wisconsin, so we didnt really know where to turn (remember this is pre-internet days) and one day we ended up eating lunch at the Mars Cheese Castle just off of Interstate 94, a few miles north of Illinois. The Mars Cheese Castle had a bar / restaurant in back and we enjoyed a couple of beers to wash down a simple, but fine lunch. We were watching Charles Manson on TV give his first interview, noticing how his lingo was unchanged from the time he went to prison. My drivers license photo was being passed around as it bore an uncanny and unsettling resemblance to Charles. The howls of laughter and fingers pointing in my direction attracted the attention of the bartender who, upon seeing my picture, gave one of the those "Spock single eyebrow lifts". This was fortunate as he held the key to our camping future.

We were soon explaining our camping plight to him and he suggested we check out the Bong Recreational Area. We had seen the signs, but had never taken the time explore it. Turns out it was a very nice state park, built on what was to have been a B52 bomber base (fly over the north pole to bomb the Russians), but the base was scrapped when ICBMs became the weapon delivery vehicle of choice. Dont know if it would have made a good base, but it made an excellent park and we camped there every year until GenCon moved to Inidianapolis.

So we went through the campground trial by fire again in Indiana, and after a couple of years found Hidden Paradise in the small town of St Paul, about 30 miles SE of Indinapolis. So it was here on Saturday the 8th that the 9 of us who showed up this year began this years gaming bonanza.

Unlike previous years, we kept a list of games played and what follows is that list, who played and won and an occasional note if i can remember any particulars.

There were 9 attendees.

Jim
Jeffrey
Dan
Marty
Debbie
Josh
Chris
Kim
Jeff (me)

OK...i added totals with win %....

Player Wins Plays Win %
Chris 2 5 .400

Jeffrey 6 26 .231
Josh 2 12 .167

Since we had 3 players, decided to give this a try.

Winner: Dan
Played Jeffery, Jeff

In this game, Dan took a side angle that allowed me to cut him off, but he managed to squeeze through one spot and expand out while having a same area to fill later.

Again, a 3 player game.

Winner: Dan
Played: Jeffery, Jeff

Dan completed the huge 9 link connection early on and then drew a couple of tickets which made use of this. Both Dan and I drew a lot of tickets, but on our last draw I got a net negative and he got a lot of points and that was about the difference. I really enjoy this TTR.

We had fun so we did it again.

Winner: Dan
Played: Jeffery, Jeff

You many have noticed that 9 people are listed as attending, but only 3 are playing games. Well, some of those attending have other interests besides games (i dont really understand it) and so will read or talk or just sit around the fire....what a waste of good gaming time.

Day 2 dawned and we decided at breakfast...oh we eat out as a group at the one small restaurant in St Paul, which is open 6 days a week for breakfast and lunch. Menu is simple and delicious and we bring out own Cholula sauce....we decided to paly China Rails.

Winner: Josh
Played: Maryt, Jeff, Jeffery, Dan

I never was in this game. Had a good southern start with 3 good runs, and then had a constant string of deliveries where i would spend half of the time deadheading. was frustrating. In the middle of the game, I got 3 deliveries to line up and got 143 million in span of about 3 turns. This brought be up from last to a close second. However, I would never seriously threaten and faded, finishing 3rd out of 5.

I like this game, but it took us 6 hours to play this. I might put a clok in the box of see if we can play a game of speed Rails.

I forgot this one the first time through the list....so here it is in its proper place.

Winner: Chris
Played: Jeff, Dan, Jeffery

I wish i had kept notes on this game, as it was very enjoyable. I ended up with 90 pts overall and finished second by 2 pts. However, I made 45 pts in my last three turns. that same as I made in my first 6 turns (I think it was 9 turns). Everyone came away from this game wanting to play again, though we wouldnt get to it this trip.

Winner: Jeff

Poor Chris had some moderat to poor hands and having not played before, took a couple of beatdowns. I dont think he got even one territory, and was more than ready to quit whent the game ended. I suspect he will not willingly play again.

Winner: Jeff
Played: Dan, Jeffery

We used the suggested first game setup and it was interesting to see the different approaches to the game. I think Dan and Jeffery will both benefit from multiple plays to get a better idea on are and are not good buys.

Day 3 and we started with a rousing game of Ra...my favorite auction game.

Winner: Jeffery
Played: Josh, Jeff, Pete, Dan

Whatever decision i made it proved to be the wrong one. Still the mark of a good game is enjoying having it all go wrong just as much as having it go right.

This is one of campground annuals as its about the only time we get enough people interested with enough time to commit.

Winner: Dan (come from behind in last two turns)
Played: Jeffery, Marty, Jeff, CHris, Josh

I finished 4th and was never really a threat. Fun game that takes a long time but with much less downtime than in China Rails. I wish I could remember some of the particulars...but they have already faded.

Only Dan had played before.

Winner: Jeffery
Played: Josh, Dan, Jeffery

I found this game both frustrating and enjoyable. Some of the event cards seemed contrived such as encountering a city while in the ocean, and there doesnt seem to be a way to really formulate a strategy...at least not that i could find, however, I hae to admit i had fun playing it.
