Convic is always a great social affair. It's a time to meet new friends and greet old friends. Oh, and perhaps do a little bit of gaming.

This year I arrived a little bit on the late side Friday night...

Arriving near the end of the gaming day, most of my time was spending doing the meet & greet. Soon though, a number of the games were winding down and Ryan was trying to organise a game of werewolf. He was quite successful gathering people together and soon we lynching villagers.

Game One: Ryan(mod), Adam, Alvin, Ben, Bethany, Frank, Gregor, Joseph, Kim, Rob (and me).

Game Two: +Jack.

Both games were very fun and it was a great icebreaker to get some of the new people into the position of negotiating for their lives. Australia's own MrSkeletor had me eating out of the palm of his hand, but thankfully the last two villagers saw through his ruse.

And it was almost go home time already. But Ben had me jumping in aisle by bringing Loopin' Louie so I managed to get in a quick three games before we left.

Alvin, Ben, Bethany, Gregor, Joseph, Mel were my happy opponants.

Arriving late in the morning, I was thrilled to have Scott teach me Tinner's Trail. Aaron and Gregor joined us and I found the game wonderful and thematic to play. It is possibly the best of Wallace's "new" games. But I also really enjoy...

...Automoblie. I've played this once before (as had Gregor and Duncan). Duncan was a wonderful rules explainer and we initiated Joris into the Automobile Tycoon Club.

Again, I found the game wonderfully thematic and enjoyable. But after two rather heavy Eurogames I was ready for something on the light side of the spectum.

I have no idea what Zack has to do with this game, but I've heard a bit of raving around this game at BorderCon so I was eager to try it out.

Aaron, Duncan, Gregor, Sol and Vince participated in a frantic 20 minutes of loading up our trucks with minimum wastage.

Getting near dinnertime, there was enough time to play my first game of Sorry! Sliders. Jack, Sol and Tim were my playmates for this gmae.

I'm a big crokinole fan, but S!S failed to scratch the itch. I much prefer Tumblin' Dice which I found a bit more strategic and entertaining. The company was good though as Sol won the game.

After dinner, it was time for some more negotiation and Sol, Mel and I began to recruit some green land lubbers, Alvin, Andrew & Ben for a game of Lifeboats.

Mel took an early lead with a boat containing just Alvin's, Mel's and My crew made it quickly to safety. Shortly after Sol openly declared that he was going to kill me at every opportunity. Mel's lead grew with the next boat landing and we (I?) thought she had it in the bag. At least it appeared everyone thought so, as the remainder of her crew were quickly thrown overboard.

I tried to ensure all of Sol's men drowned, but one, hiding in a boat of mixed crews, made it to safety.

Andrew, never having had to row for his life before, had a boat packed with three crewmembers, which the rest of us gleefully sank.

Soon only one boat was left and one more crewmember had to be thrown overboard. So there was only one thing for me to do, play my last Captain Card and make the executive decision to toss Sol's only crewmember into the sea. Already in last place, Sol exclaimed to the table's utter delight "You are a Complete Asshole!"

Now that's what I call a good game!

Mel and I made a bit of an exit for some McCafe Cappacinos and some late night shopping. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

When we returned the day was winding up and I played two quick games of Fits with Kitty from Portland.

Glad to learn it, but I probably won't ever play it again. It is as close to a solitaire game as is Yahtzee.

So was the day over, not quite. Mel and I got a quick two-player game of Carcassonne in, in which she kicked my butt. It was good for her to get the "monkey off her back" as I beat her the previous time.

And with that we went home.

Sunday morning arrived and passed and I finally made it back to the Con around noon!

I had to be back in Ballarat mid-afternoon so I passed on offer of BSG and Automobile. Mel learned Hanging Gardens earlier and greatly enjoyed it but didn't want to teach it. So, we wrangled the sexy Neil Thomson to teach me. Serge also joined us and we were soon off.

Mel was thrilled to win (again) and is now 2 for 2! So she bought the game

Well, we were getting ready to leave, but not before another 2 quick games of LL with Ben, Mel and Serge.

And with that, I bid everyone Adieu!
