We met. Filled the room all day.Recommend
For those not there, the room got remodeled. Fresh coat of paint. Nice shades rather than the ratty curtains they had. New carpet.
Big downside: no whiteboard. So maybe the list of what was played is less accurate than in previous events. We can only hope that this is temporary.
First appearance of some new Essen games. I played Urban Sprawl and Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas, for instance. Interesting games and in particular Colonial seems very close to being a very good game: I'm going to wait until the rules settle down as the designer seems to still be tweaking post-release.
Math trade went on without a hitch, although the organizer was disappointed with the number of games changing hands. Seemed to be more people trying to unload games than those looking to acquire: might say something about the economy or the time of year (immediately post-Essen) or the demographics of our group.
Bay Area Games Day is a daylong event held every 6-8 weeks in the South Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. The venue is the Los Altos main library, about 15 miles west of the city of San Jose. We play a huge variety of games at Games Day, including German-style strategy boardgames, lots of cardgames, and wargames. More information about Games Day is available by joining our Yahoo group at:
Next meeting is Saturday, December 3. Then another Saturday, January 7. And we meet as a smaller group every Tuesday night in the Mountain View Community Center at Rengstorff Park from 6:30-10:00 at 201 S. Rengstorff Ave. in Mountain View, CA.
Here's what we played. Please correct any errors or omissions.
