Ok. I'm sure the ratio of people at Essen vs not at Essen cannot be the same ratio of Geeklists about Essen.

So, if your like me, and your not there but still playing some great games games, post them here with pride.

I bought this game when it came out and played it a few times. I don't know if it was the group I was with, but it did not hit a sweet spot for me. I eventually traded it out in a math trade, but soon after I was sorry.

I recently played this game and forgot how fun and challenging this could be. The first two games were a disaster for our three man crew, but after that we posted a win.

One of those Grail games for me. I had always wanted it. Had always heard great things about it. The theme, board, bits, game play, all appealed to me on many levels. My only problem is that I don't really have a war gaming buddy to play this with. I would have much rather had this taught to me so I could jump right in.
Sill, I played the basic game solo just to get my feet wet. Wow what a game. I finished a basic game in which the fellowship won by military victory but mostly because I had no idea what I was doing.

I have gone back and read the full rules and am now ready for a full game... with some help and an opponent, if available.

I love me some Pandemic. One of my games that I have rated a 10. We played a two player game and lost because we ran out of cards when pulling from the draw pile. We were just about to play the 4th cure when that happened. That has happened to me twice in the last few games.

I just recently picked up the expansion On The Brink and can't wait to mix this in.

I had a pretty big weekend of gaming this past weekend and one of the main highlights was another round of Die Macher. The game that doesn't get played nearly as much as it should. Ahhhhhhhhhh what a fantastic game.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

The object of the game is simple...to kill every other player on the board.

I played 11 different games from Friday to Sunday, and this one was one of the best.
