In the tradition of several pre-BOGA geeklists that have already been published this year, following is list of games that I would like to play this Friday at the next BOGA night. Please add any games you would like to play next BOGA and comment as you wish! Thank you.

[Note: BOGA is the Boardgamers of Greater Akron, a group of gamers in NE Ohio who meet on the second Friday of the month at Underhill's Games in Cuyahoga Falls, OH]

Aah, what would BOGA be without Officer Mike and me kicking it of with a fiercly fought battle of Combat Commander in the early afternoon?

Wait...

As I will be coming in directly from the Cleveland airport this Friday, I probably won't make it in until 6:30pm. By that time, the store will probably already have filled up quite a bit, and as much as I love to play this game against Mike, I also love playing multi-player games with my favourite BOGA crowd.

So, maybe not this Friday, but who knows...

I bought this expansion over a month ago and it has not hit the table since then. Quite surprising, I did not see this being played a lot at this year's BGG.con. Maybe people are already getting fed up with Agricola?

Well, I am not and I know that there is always a great Agricola fan-base at BOGA. I brought the rules with me on my trip and I will read them ahead of time.

We will play Race, I am quite certain about this. It is still one of my 10-rated games on the Geek.

I am still not so convinced on the new expansion (Rebel vs. Imperium). The new cards are nicer than in the first expansion (The Gathering Storm) and certainly add to the game. Especially military strategies seem to benefit. The new 'Takeover' rules leave me cold. They add a significant amount of new rules and bookeeping to the game that does not seem justified in proportion to the fun added. Typical example of 80/20 rule here. Everywhere I play the new expansion, people vote to not play with the new rules.

I have been asked to teach this one on Friday. Who knows if I will have time to play anything else.

I am still looking for people interested in a BoGA Design and Prototype Committee. Please send me a Geek Mail.

I would love to break out Friedrich that night. It is a wargame-eurogame hybrid that I think a lot of people of the regular BOGA crowd would enjoy.

When I say wargame, don't worry: this game does not include dice, combat resolution tables, cardboard counters, NATO symbols and hexes. It features a beautiful gamebaord (gorgeous!) and playing cards.

Why not give it a try and venture a little bit beyond your traditional worker-placement-euro-train-auction boardgame? I'll be willing to teach.

I think that Underhill's has a store copy of this one, so I won't be bringing mine.

For me, Endeavor is one of the best games of 2009. Why?: short playing time (90min), yet meaty enough! The artwork is also very nice and the random starting setup offers good replayability.

Played this with Grant on Saturday. This could be the perfect game to end the evening. Or to kick it off. Or, anyway inbetween.

I will not be bringing it this time.

Though Michael and Erin will be loathe to hear it, I would love to see this hit the table. I am still really enjoying this game.

If there is one game I really, really want to try out, then it's 'Power Struggle'. the board looks gorgeous and the theme looks very interesting to me. I desperately tried to have someone teach me at BGG.con, but every time I went to the hot games room, the table was either completely occupied or empty.

Can someone help me out of my misery?

I will not be at BOGA Friday, but I was drawn to the theme of this game and picked it up after Essen.

My plan is to learn it and try to get a game together at the January BOGA. You all have a Happy Holiday season and I will see you in January.
