Greetings fellow geeks! It's Monday! The weekend is now over, and as we toil at our assorted labors, we should recount our past weekend gaming exploits.

So, all you weekend gamers, bring your mini-session reports and stories of weekend gaming greatness, as you pop in here to answer the question:
What did you play this weekend?

The Geeklist version can be found here:

This sums it up for me too. Here's my very brief report of our tour of Innsmouth: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/5032661#5032661

It took us 4 tries, but we finally cured the expanded world of Pandemic.

Although I had a really long weekend (4-days), I didn't get as much gaming as I preffered.

Thursday:
None what so ever cry

Friday:
Had some games of Nemo's War. Had great couple of games, yet I didn't manage to win a single one.

Saterday:
During the day I tried to finally win a game of Nemo's War, but again I failed.
In the evening we finally got around to play World Without End which I already got for my birthday.
Had fun while we where playing, but this games deserves 4 player instead of 2. My girlfriend at least liked it better then The Pillars of the Earth.

Sunday:
Again a busy day without much gaming, just squeezed 1 game of Nemo's War in..AND I FINALLY MANAGED TO WIN. got a 171vp's, which meant succes on anti-imperialism.
Only one problem with winning..Now I want to play it even more often.

Cheers, Haring

Several games of Dominion on Saturday (with Alchemy). Then I dipped my toes into BSW for the first time on Sunday. So more Dominion and a couple of games of Pandemic.

Thursday: We played Greed Incorporated. My worst showing yet, as I was company-less for probably half the game (yet still almost came in 2nd, lol).

Friday: Poker night. Two tournaments, I placed 4/12 the first, but a dreadful 9/10 the second. Tired and cranky are two things you shouldn't be playing that game.

Saturday: A few of us got together to learn Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage. Being a fan of Twilight Struggle, I've been looking forward to playing this game and it didn't disappoint. My Carthagians had a resounding victory.

Sunday: Outside enjoying the weather, plus hockey games to watch, but still managed to sneak in a game each of Tichu and Three-Dragon Ante: Emperor's Gambit.

Continued a 2p game of Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization on VASSAL. I think I'm starting to figure both the module and the game itself out.

Also played my first round of disc golf of 2010. Big group (8 players), of whom many were very skilled. I finished last but still enjoyed myself.

Gettysburg from Deer Valley Games. Even with a lot of house rules this game is 'broken' on many levels. The map constraints and the time limit make it virtually impossible for the South to have a chance unless the Union player is a complete imbicile.
