This sunday we had the biggest crowd of any CERN games club meeting ever. Over 40 people showed up and at one point we counted 37 people playing simultaneously. About double our records from a year ago.

Thought it would be fun to record a list of everything we played that night. I know there were quite a few games I missed, so please add to this list if you played or saw anything being played.

Also, by all means, post comments about any of the games. Who played, who won, crazy moments, etc.

And if anyone has pictures from the night, please post them for us all to see

The first game of the afternoon for me. We played with 5 people and it ran from 13:00 till 17:30 (including an explanation of the rules)

I know at least three games of TS were played over the course of the day. This doesn't match our record of 7 games in one day, but isn't bad.

Anyone know the stats on which side won and how for the various games?

The alarm bells, explosions, and other "normal" sounds of a space station were heard all across CERN as the fearless crew members fought off evil aliens for hour after hour.

[The captain of said space station would want me to inform you that the previous comment was entirely hyperbolic. Nothing bad ever happens in space. Ever. In fact, space is very boring.]

There was a stack of Dominion boxes piled high on the table. Looked like some epic deck building was going on at that table.

One of the favorite filler games of the club. I think we had well over 8 players crowding around the table for this one.

I saw at least two games of this being played with various expansions. A two player game with a dragon on the board and another game with 4+ and what looked like a lot of expansions.

Andre is apparently a natural pizza chief. Or card counter.

There were two simultaneous games of BSG running. The first was a 6 player game with 4 new players, and the second a game with 7 experienced players and a lot of expansion packs.

In the 7 player game, the Cylons managed a win at the last minute in morale.

Race was pulled out and played several times. We had the first two expansions (TGS and RvI).

This was being set up and played at the same time as the two games of BSG, so I didn't catch how many people were playing. Anyone care to post the details?

Catan hit the tables at least twice over the course of the evening. Not sure what expansions were being used. Anyone know?

Five player game. Two of us had played the game once before. Victory was mine!

Five player game. First time I played with the expansion tickets. Much better than the original I must say.
