I've got a couple of new additions I can bring out.

Small World Underground
Tichu

I'll also bring Power Grid and Agricola.

I wouldn't mind trying Tigris & Euphrates or Shogun if anyone has those?

Tichu is great if you haven't tried it yet. I still prefer spades, but an excellent trick taking game.

I'd love to try any of those, with Agricola at the top of the list. I'll see if I can find the rules online; from what I understand, it's a complicated game.

Are shorts allowed in the Legion hall? After the heat yesterday I've decided I'm allergic to pants.

I've worn shorts there quite a bit and no one's ever mentioned anything to me about it.

Cameron and I should be there. Not sure what we'll bring (unless there are requests). We did add a few new ones to the collection...
Letters from Whitechapel
Awful Green Things from Outer Space
Battleship Galaxies

Great fun last night. It was nice meeting you all! Request for next time if possible: Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game. After chatting with Cary about it I am really intrigued.

I saw Saboteur, Memoir '44, Yggdrasil, Power Grid, Qwirkle, and The Resistance.

Good turnout and some great games.

Sam steamrolled us in Power Grid with his fast expansion. We just couldn't catch up!

Good to meet you Rob!

I'd be up for Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game too!

------------

Last night I got to play...
Saboteur 2 (expansion-only editions) - I lost by 1
Yggdrasil - We lost (on easy )
Qwirkle - I lost but 2

My losing streak continues!

So I have recently decided I want to play more board games!

This decision is the result of two things: a recent introduction to Catan at a social gathering and the perpetual worship of board games (of all types) by Jeff Cannata (of Totally Rad Show and the Weekend Confirmed podcast).

Of course I have always loved board games, but have been chained to Risk, Monopoly etc for much to long and would like to try some new stuff out.

Anyhow, I searched online and found this forum and the Orleans meet ups sound like fun.
As long as everyone has patience with a relative new comer to the world of board games I am going to try my absolute best to come out soon!

Just thought I'd post and say Hi.

Hello Stephen - look for our new posting early next week for the next games night - which by a strange coincidence will also be next week! Funny that laugh

As for patience - we've got tons of it... many are newbies too and the "old timers" .... can we call Cameron an experienced "old timer" shake.... doesn't sound right some how...

show tons of patience for those of us on "more shaky ground"

Come on out and join the fun....

Hi Stephen!

I went to my first session last week. They didn't immediately execute me and hang me up as a warning to others, so I'd say they have tons of patience.

Come out next Thursday, you'll have a great time!

I love this response! Ha!

I will definitely be attending VERY soon. Next week I am supposed to work in the evening (boo to shift work), but I am requesting the Thursday two weeks after to be off so I can play some games!

Looking forward to it.

Hi Stephen,

You're more than welcome to come out any time. We have a regular time and regular place so whenever you can make it come on out.

It's always great to have more people out and I'm sure you'll find a warm welcome.

Kevin
