We've been looking for some smaller and quicker play games to take camping when we go. This is one of the 2 games I got today. Getting ready to try it now...

Not much smaller than a card game. Played twice already. Good family fun

I'm a noob gamer and I advised my kids that if they got me a game for Father's Day to get a game they would play as well. This was their choice and while I wouldn't have bought it for myself, We've had fun playing. Who wouldn't love those cow tokens.

LIFE IS GOOD!

I did! I got 2 games for Father's Day.
The kids helped me punch and bag them and then we got this one to the table.

Sadly, I came in last. My excuse is that I was more concerned with moving the game along, and everyone having fun and understanding what they were doing, and my own decisions weren't particularly well thought out or ruthless.

Next time!

And this was my other Father's Day game!
Boy, I've been dying for this one.
The wishlist feature is a good one, once your spouse knows how to use it.

My family decided to make Father's Day game day. Best Father's Day ever...

Led off with my number one game: AOE III (and my son recruited a buddy of his so it was 5 player. AOE III rocks with 5.
Other events included:
3x Neuroshima Hex
4x Dominion (2x Seaside, 1x Dominion, 1x Dominion/Alchemy)
2x Race for the Galaxy (one vanilla, one drafting)
1x Mission Red Planet

Not a bad day's work.....

I didn't get this as a gift. Instead, I got to play this with my almost 4 daughter for the first time (arrived just this week). She loved it. And that makes for a great Father's Day.

My wife couldn't resist the theme. Played two 3-player games already today. My son loves it. Wacky fun and plays quickly. None of the interminable horror of Munchkin.

I also got Commands & Colors: Ancients Expansion Pack #1 – Greece & Eastern Kingdoms, which my son has been eager to see in the house, and Galaxy Trucker: The Big Expansion, which is very cool and completely unexpected.

We also went to see Toy Story 3 and went out to dinner, so it was a pretty wonderful day overall.

10. Board Game: Pandemic [Average Rating:7.65 Overall Rank:73]

My daughter and wife are both out of the state for a week, so my 12 year old son and I have time together. Visiting Seattle, we happened upon Uncle's Games at Southcenter Mall. Perusing the games for something to play tonite, I found this gem. We had a good time playing this, winning on our first try (but only because we got a couple of rules wrong).

The other purchases were The World Cup Game (on sale - see below) and booster packs for Axis & Allies War at Sea: Condition Zebra and Star Wars Miniatures. The World Cup Game was on a sale table, marked down and eligible for further discount based on a 2DR (seriously). My usual poor rolling gave me only a further 25% discount (box cars would've given me 99% off), alas.

Our play in the hotel consisted of that game of Pandemic and one play of Lost Cities. The minis will have to wait until we get back home to the rest of our collections.

Technically, I bought the games so they weren't directly gifts from my family. However, time with my son (including gaming) is gift enough.

Happy Father's Day everyone.

I also received a t-shirt for Atlanta Braves rookie sensation Jason Heyward, and a photo book featuring local amateur photographers - two of which are friends of mine.

We even managed to sneak in a few games during our busy weekend.
