AAR: GAMES DAY MEMPHIS

Spent Saturday, 15 September, in Memphis, TN, at “Games Day Memphis.” This was a simple board gaming ‘event’ held at the Wingate Inn that started at 9 AM and ended at 1 AM on Sunday, 16 September. The event had a library of several hundred AT/ET games available (including a copy of the 1989 version of Space Hulk), free for any participants to use, along with any games that the participants chose to bring with them. I brought "Last Night on Earth, the Zombie Game" and "War on Terror" among others.

The event was set-up in the hotel’s conference room and had, at least, seven tables available, which worked out pretty well as there were a reported 31 paid participants. In addition, as part of a participants fee, the event provided both a lunch and a dinner meal. Gaming started precisely at 9 AM and the tables were mostly fully occupied right up until the event closed a little after 1 AM.

I managed to get in fourteen games during the event and it looked like I might consider moving to Memphis as I won 6 of the first 7 games in which I participated (I ended-up with a 50/50 split for the event). The games included: ‘Last Night on Earth, War on Terror, Formula De, Bolide, Kahuna, Guillotine, For Sale, Diamant, Tsuro, and Werewolf.”

This is a good way to see and play a lot of games you otherwise might not get to see.

Total travel time was close to seven hours and round-trip distance about 450 miles (both travel time and distance are somewhat reduced in you factor-out navigational errors!).

Next Saturday, 29 September, I'm on my way back to Atlanta Games Fest 12; it is a three day event, starting on Friday 28 September and running through late Sunday 30 September.
