This was my second con, and this year I convinced four of my friends to join in, Brian (brianmclaren), Chris, James (j10five), and Jeb (jsfour). We're all locals, but I wanted to have the hotel experience at least one night, so Chris and I stayed at the Westin Thursday night, but otherwise we were all coming and going.

This year, I kept notes on what all games I played so I could come back afterwards and make a geeklist of all the games I played this year. However, I did not make notes on people's names, cause I'm an idiot, and so I will put names where I can remember them, but if you recognize yourself on this list and I don't have your name, please let me know so I can add you. And if I got your name wrong, I super duper apologize for it.

Thanks for reading my ramblings!

Beth from Rio Grande taught us this one, I liked it OK, could fill a nice niche as a lighter weight civ builder, but nothing special, just a good solid game.

Time played: Wednesday afternoon
Players: 3 - James (j10five), one of the guys from the Steve Jackson booth

The nice guys working the Steve Jackson booth showed us 3 of their dice games. The bad news is this one was crap, it's barely a game, picking which opponent you're going to target before rolling the die is pretty much the only decision you make. I guess if you love all things Cthulhu, you could play this as a 5 minute mini filler, otherwise, pass. The good news is the next two they showed us got progressively better.

The Steve Jackson guys next busted out Zombie Dice, this one was much better. A pretty straightforward press your luck game, but the custom dice and the theme fit together well, and made for a very fun little 10 minute or so romp.

Pirate Dice

Time played: Wednesday afternoon
Players: 4 - James (j10five), two of the guys from the Steve Jackson booth

And then they busted out a prototype of their next dice game, currently known as Pirate Dice. This was great, probably the best dice game I've ever played. Everyone takes two dice, all the dice are the same and each side has a different treasure on it. Each round one person is the captain, and hides their eyes while the crew all roll their dice. Then each crew member in turn makes one true statement about the treasures showing, like "There are more gold treasures than silver treasures" or "4 different treasures are showing". The the crew cover up their dice, the captain looks up and rolls his 2 dice. Of the two symbols that show up, the captain must choose one as his tribute, which forces the crew to give him any of their treasures that match, but the other symbol the crew gets to keep. The the captain picks one more treasure from the remaining ones as another tribute. Then everyone gets a point for every treasure they have, and the next person becomes captain. Once everyone has had a turn as captain, add up the points to determine a winner. Fun, easy to get, quick, and a little thinky, I really enjoyed this one.

Next we took a stab at Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space. We only had 3, which made the game kinda blah, but I suspect it would be better with more people. However, even then I don't think this would ever be a great one.

This one had been on my list to try forever, so I'm glad I finally got the chance. I feel about this game like I do chess, I like it, I find it interesting, but I suck at it.

Decided to get one more game in before dinner, and picked this old one that neither of us had played before. It was fun, a little confusing at first, but we got the hang of it, and it was fun, although another one that I think would be better with more people. It has a great sense of humor too, especially as groups start getting chained together in funny ways, like when I had the Cocaine Smugglers controlling Madison Avenue.

Players: 3 - Bob and Bob?

After putting in an hour in the library (which was fun, and I recommend to anyone interesting in volunteering), I saw 2 guys looking to play Saint Petersburg, and I thought it would be nice to get in one game I already knew. They were in from the New England area, I know one of them was named Bob, and I think maybe both of them were? (Sorry guys, I'm so bad with names!) Anyway, I'd only played this a few times, and they both play it a lot, so I knew I was in trouble, and sure enough they smoked me pretty good, but they were very nice and funny, and its always good to play a game like that with people who are really good at it so you can see how they play it.

I like Stone Age a lot, and wanted to teach it to Chris. While we were setting up, a nice guy asked to join in, so the 3 of us played. I went with a big farm strategy, at the end I had 8 farms and got 5 points per from my tech cards, but those 40 points were not enough to make up how far i had fallen behind during the game and I lost.

James joined us just after lunch, and the 3 of us decided to give the new version of Factory Fun a try. It was a new game for all of us, but it had been on my want to try list for a long time. We really liked it, the iconography on the new version is great, makes it really easy to figure out what is going on and what stuff costs.

This was one of my favorite new games last year, but hadn't played it since. We were just setting up when someone joined in, so we had the full 4. Good game, everyone finished in the positive, year one I played really conservative on the evilometer, got the weakest heroes and only lost one tile (and could have lost none if I hadn't made 1 stupid mistake). Year two I got more aggressive and got some tougher heroes though, and I lost a room to them which cost me the game cause I lost by 1 point.

After dinner, Jeb and Brian joined us, and for our first game at full strength, we decided to play Ticket To Ride Marklin edition, which James owns and highly recommended. I'm glad he did, it was fun, a good tight game, up until the end when Brian took a draw of routes late and got 3 big point ones he either already had completed or was able to complete before the game ended, and he ended up winning easily.

A couple of us are fans of Board Games with Scott, and we had been wanting to try his game. I'm glad we did, I really enjoyed it, it's a remarkable modeling of a hyper inflated bubble economy. A little tricky to wrap your head around at first, but once we did it was great.

Time played: Friday morning
Players: 3 - Chris, Tim

So Friday morning Chris and I were looking for something short to play while we waited on Jeb and James to show up, and we settled on Thunderstone since we had liked Dominion the day before. Neither of us had played it before, so we were going slow and reading the rules as we went. We were about three rounds in when Tim walked up. Tim had seen a demo of the game the day before, but hadn't actually played it, so he asked if he could jump in and try to catch up, so we said yes. Really enjoyed the game, the dungeon theme works well, and I squeaked out a narrow win.

While we were finishing up Thunderstone, James showed up and saw a demo of Carson City and really wanted to try it. Tim really wanted to play it too, so he stuck around and the five of us played it. We were just setting it up and going through the rules when a nice woman came by and said she and her boyfriend loved the game and could teach it to us (again, sorry I've forgotten your name!), so she went and found him and they taught it to us. Wild west theme is not usually my thing, but this was a really good game, I enjoyed it. I got crushed though because I didn't do enough to get points during the early game.

Chris had to get back to the real world, so James and I decided we'd show Factory Fun to Brian and Jeb. However, this time we got the original version, not the new one. Not only did we find this version a little more confusing (really, the clean up in the new one is amazing), but we found it a lot harder too, I wonder if they changed the machines or something to make the new one easier.

James had bought Cosmic Encounter a couple of months ago but hadn't had a chance to play it yet, so we busted it out. We decided to play a couple of rounds, make sure we had the rules right, and then start over. While resetting the game, Rick came up and asked if he could join in, so we played a full game 4 player, and it was great, really fun game, I liked it a lot.

Rick had played it a few times, and decided to stick with us for one more game. Had a good learning game, Rick beat me by one point. I still love this game, and I think it now has 2 more fans.
