Gen Con or Gen Can't week? Gen Can't...

Monday
1x - Targi - mb

Saturday - Game Night

Gen Con sounded like a blast for those whose updates I was able to follow. Gen Can't was nearly a Gen Can't Can't Either event, but I made the most of it.

Not a bad week, not a bad week at all

On Monday, GF and I played Merchants & Marauders. This was our second play, and the first one was a while ago. So lots of rules reading and checking. GF got blown to smithereens by NPC ships twice, which kind of soured it a bit for her. She did still have fun, though

On Tuesday, we played a round of Samara. It was our second play, and it was pretty fun. Not a game that will make a big impact on gaming, but fun to break out every now and then
After Samara, to help my ongoing mission to get unplayed games to the table, we played Shroom Boom. I bought this in Essen a few years ago, but never got around to playing it. It's absolutely terrible with two, but the five-minute game length makes it more of a funny terrible than a 'kill me now' terrible. I would actually like to try it with more

On Wednesday, GF suggested Guillotine, and who am I to say no to that? After many heads were chopped off, the game ended in a draw
Then I suggested to try Hong. I bought it because GF liked the box art. It's an alright two-player abstract that doesn't overstay its welcome. We played two rounds and fun was had. I'd have to play it more to see if there is any actual strategy

On Saturday, we had a three player game day with my GF and a friend. We started out with a game we all love: Keyflower. We had only ever played this two-player, so 3p was interesting and fun. GF played the mind game well and ended up with a surprise win by having seven or eight sets of three different meeps
We then continued with a round of Norsaga. I had played it once before, but that fell flat. That was a 2p game, though. We played the basic game and I didn't really like it. I'd like to try the normal game with more thab two before I make up my mind, but so far I'm undecided.
Then my happy moment. We played Chicago Express. I really really like this game, but the theme and slight math make it hard to get to the table. But we played it, and all enjoyed it I even ended up winning



After food, four rounds of Win, Lose, or Banana, just because it's silly and then on to El Gaucho to close things off.

And, I got a belated birthday gift. A hand cranked card shuffler

First time participating, and I actually played more than zero games this week, so good timing! Visited with the family a few days, so more than one other adult was around. Stuck with short games since no one other than me tends to be in the mood for meatier fare.

Thursday
Sushi Go

Saturday
HedbanzHedbanz
Sushi Go
12 Days
Xactika

First time bringing out Sushi Go and after some grumbling from the parents about not knowing what they're doing (typical), everyone seemed to enjoy it. 12 Days was a little rougher the first time through, but should be smoother sailing in the future.

Xactika was just there and we played but no one was really sure or thrilled with the rules. Seems very weighted towards the lead player.

Axis & Allies Global 1940

Germany did a successful Sealion (invasion of Great Britain) but the USA eventually took Britain back. It may have been too late though, as the Germans are advancing on Moscow...
