This weekend I am marrying my wonderful fiancee Rachel. We will be having a weekend of festivities before the big day on Sunday. I'm sure I will be overcome with people to greet and details to take care of, but I'm sure to also have a great time with friends and games. Here is what I've packed and afterwards I'll share what got played. We might even have great weather and play even less games. Most of all, I can't believe the day is arriving and soon I'll be married to my game loving partner.

I hope everyone out there also finds love...and good gaming!

Sure to be talked about and played is our new 3d Catan. This was an early wedding present from close friends and we've been loving playing it, even when we should be planning the wedding. The robber is probably our favorite piece in the set. I plan to keep pimping out the set, with Catan wood pieces, and finding 3d fish for the Fisherman expansion.

Much loved cooperation game, can be bonding between new people and makes a story, even more than about the competitiveness. Also plays in an hour which makes it likely to get picked up over longer games such as Lord of the Rings.

When it comes to getting our friends to laugh crazily this is the best choice. Can't wait to see everyone keep losing which is fun in this game!

Maybe I'll jump in for a game of Speed Scrabble, and this might be played by others in the wedding party. More likely if the weather goes bad.

Yep, a 2nd copy, this one with the 5-6 player expansion as an option. I wouldn't be surprised to see two games going on of this classic.

It's one of our favorite card games. It might not get played, but maybe I can get a teaching game in and hook some friends on the game.

Only two player, but it plays fast and people could potentially set up a king of the hill style series of games.

Not quite sure about how to find Regular Cards in the database. A few decks of cards for favorites like Euchre, Spit, Hearts, and more.

Eric brought this one and played a scenario with Clayton. Ariella got good karma by being nearby but keeping to her studies instead of playing. I didn't think this game would get taught and played but these two are committed!

Ariella and Clayton brought their collection of all 3 Dominion games. At least one person learned how to play during the weekend. That was Tal, and he demolished the competition during his first game. Clayton seems to keep teaching games and then saying halfway through - OK, no more strategy tips for you!

Uno the Superman edition. This game was loved, especially by the kids who put the cards in their mouths. No big loss, and still playable even if missing a few cards.

A huge hit in Israel, it is like UNO with all the house rules as part of the official game. Lots of our friends already knew how to play and enjoy it. One of our jokes is that the more you think you know strategy the more likely you are to lose. Light-hearted fun for all.

I'm glad I brought it because a couple games were played that were inter-generational. Kids can really enjoy the pictures and making deals around the table.
