Every month, our local game club, Boardgame Addicts of the Peninsula, has a Game Day. (In case you don't know the Bay Area, "the Peninsula" is midway between San Francisco and San Jose, CA.) For October, we made a dedicated effort to bring Halloween-themed games, but we didn't play as many of them as we expected. (Jeff, indeed, we tried!) The reason? There are so many good games out that it was hard to tear away from them.

For more information on BAP, here's the link to the Yahoo! group:

Mike Chase, gamester extraordinaire, brought his expanded board, with other attractive additions. (Ooooh, shiny!) The Fellowship won a ring victory, by the way.

We did play this Halloween-friendly game right away. My little girl with a teddy bear turned very, very bad. She almost did in all the other players, but not quite.

Thanks to our new BAPers, who gave us a lightning introduction to this excellent game. We ran out of time, but it was a blast to play.

The other horror game that hit the table last Saturday. Everyone who played enjoyed it, so our group definitely recommends it.

Probably the least Halloween-ish game.

We experimented with this game, but we didn't play a complete game. Promising, but you can't breeze through the rules as quickly as I thought.

A quick filler game.

The inevitable Heroscape. The expansions will ensure it continues to make a monthly appearance.

At last, I got to play this game! We had a very good tutorial, then dove right in. It's fairly newbie-friendly, since it's not hard to figure out a basic strategy. It deserves some kind of award for Best Reference Materials--the game cards are very well-designed.

Out came a custom Memoir '44 board, a mat with larger-sized hexes. Felt rivers, HO-scale trees--the combination definitely worked. Very cool.
