I'll be by and bring Whistle Mountain. The whirlpool is treacherous so only play if you're a strong swimmer.

Beyond the Sun has been great. I also thing Rick with like Lost Ruins of Arnak. Not sure yet if I’ll be able to come but I’ll try

Beyond the Sun was my Game of the Year for 2020. Really good game and one I'm always happy to play.

I've also heard good things about Beyond the Sun. Maybe I'll look for a good video on BGG so I at least have a basic understanding of the game.

Rick, why don't you bring the Lost Cities Roll & Move, if you don't mind? I've heard good things about it and it could make a very nice opener.


For a 2p I'd still rather play the original (2p Roll & Write you end up in all 6 expeditions). I've only played with 3+ a couple times and there are more interesting decisions about which expeditions to start/advance with more players. Happy to bring & teach.

I'm generally of the opinion that once you've played 2 you never need to go back to the original. The exception possibly being if I can get some of Cheryl's non-gaming family to play later today it will be Crew 1. Conveniently they both fit in the original box and the extra red/green communication tokens work really well in other games (i.e. Terraforming Mars) to signal "I've passed".

Not sure about Cheryl yet but I expect to be there shortly before 1pm. I'm hoping she will be up for at least an early game but she has a family function in the evening.

The newest things I have are Castles of Tuscany, Bonfire, Mariposas, The Crew 2, and Lost Cities Roll & Write. At the pace the hobby is going (or perhaps the much slower pace my life is going these days) I figure if the game is one I already know AND already have a copy of, it can't possibly be considered "new"! Still, LMK if anyone wants me to bring any of those.

I'd be up for learning at least one new game. I've been told I would like Lost Ruins of Arnak (so I watched a video, looks interesting). John's write up of Nidavellir sounded interesting right up until the word "bid" (I don't generally like auction games unless they're structured auctions like in Princes of Florence). I'd give it a try if it's not too auction heavy.

I'll be showing up at 1 PM or a little earlier and should be able to stick around until the late evening. I'm still in love with Anno 1800, although I seem to be getting worse with it with each play! I always enjoy The Crew. And if anyone has anything else relatively new, I'd love to try it. I'll also be bringing a copy of The Grand Trunk Journey, a train game that takes a little over 2 hours to play. Hope to see a bunch of you there!

Happy Thanksgiving, ABGers!




This Saturday, the 27th, is the fourth Saturday of the month, and, thankfully, a game day!




We can add pipeline to the list of recent additions.




Who is coming by and what do you want to play? Normal timing.
