I think the title says it all! It was a big gameday at the local game store from 10am to 10pm and more.

It was the first game I played. I played with David, a friend, and Martin, a complete stranger! I explained the game and we started playing (Both were new to the game). David kept complaining that he didn't understood the strategy, and still he won! Guess I overestimated my fellow beginners

While waiting for more of our friends, me, BG, JF and JR played Attika, it was their first game. Just as our other friends arrived, I took the win connecting 2 temples by placing 3 streets... those streets are nasty!

This was the game I wanted to play again. Maybe it was my 10th game, I don't know, but I can never play this game enough! So me, BG, JF, Mik and Pat were the players. During the game, there was a group playing Mare Nostrum behind us, a fun fact erupted and will be discussed later in the list . During this game we got our ultimate highest number of colonist on ship : 17!!! Just before that, we got 16, this mean 33 colonist in 2 mayor phase! I got the win on this one by shipping some corn the traditional way, and selling tobbaco for 7 doubloon ... mwahaha!

While we browsed the store and taking a little break, BG read the rules of Ticket to ride, so we played after a brief 10~20 minutes break. My first contract both connected to Houston, so I got the first part of the game wrapped up quickly! I even got a third contract connecting to Houston, it was funny! We had a good laugh while playing/chit-chatting. BG was in the lead most of the game, but Mik erupted of nowhere in the last turn and got the win. I had 50 points in "contract" but it was not enough...

Next was El Grande. Players were me, BG, Mik, JF and David. I explained the rules during about 30 minutes while waiting after David to finish his game of Industria... and had to tell JF that the king DOES NOT go in the Castillo!!! Now how to explain a game of El Grande... wooden cubes moved around, and beside the running joke of the king and the Castillo, nothing much to tell, we were pretty hungry so we waited the game to end quickly, but we had fun nonetheless! Mik used the same tactics of having a devastating last turn to take the win.

After eating me and JF went to David's place and played Iron Dragon. The game didn't end because we misinterpreted a rule. The troll DOES NOT MOVE FREELY ON OTHER'S PLAYERS RAIL!!!

7. Board Game: Mare Nostrum [Average Rating:6.74 Overall Rank:1072]

Now the game of Mare Nostrum that was behind us during Puerto Rico... We checked their game from time to time and something struck us... they traded with face down cards... now our group always played face up, so we wondered who was right. One of the player stated that the rules said that the trade was face down, and everyone in the shop agreed, so only our group were wondering and thinking about strategies with facedown cards... After his game of "L'age des Dieux", David (He's the one who own mare Nostrum) went to the group who played the game and double-checked the rules, and clarified that the trades were done with cards face-up. So our group was right and the rest of the world was wrong... Hurray!!!
