Lots of folks and lots of games. I tried to list as many as I remembered, but feel free to list the ones I forgot.

Feel free to comment with your thoughts on any game, even if you weren't there or didn't play it. Let us know if you like it, hate it, or are interested playing it in the future, etc.

If you want to see a list of our past Meetup's and games played, check out the Meta List.

This is simple and fun, but I really enjoy it. I finally made it out of the temple this time, but lost by a point!

This game was set up, but a little late in the night to give it a full play. Next time.

This seems to be a staple at our gaming days, the cylons won again, but only because they had a sympathetic cylon, who was not so sympathetic!

This is a fun, quick playing abstract that I know they played with the wrong rules... I think they still had fun though...

This was played twice. I think this is one of the best negotiation games out there, would love to hear others opinions on this.

This is an interesting game, with some great mechanics. I am not sure if I like this game more or Endevor.

I didn't get a chance to play it this time, but I need to give it another go around

I love and hate this game. This meetup reminded me why. I am tempted in getting Munchkin thought as I think they both scratch the same itch for me, but Munchkin plays a lot faster.

I am really beginning to like this game, maybe because I have won the last two times I have played it...
