4th Saturday Gaming (Apr 23) Unfortunately, I'm not likely to make it. Argh.

Fourth Saturday Gaming, May 28th I will not be there May 29.
However I will be boardgaming with some friends in Richmond.
Have a great Mem Day weekend!

XMEN First Class I saw it Sunday and really liked it. I am not a big comic person, so I didn't know the back-story and this was very enlightening for me. There were some mutants in the movie that I'd never heard of. Were they actually in comics, or created for the movie?

Lots of Games for Sale..... Hi Kent... I'll take Amun Re if nobody has claimed it yet. I'll bring $20 Saturday. BTW... after having to leave early the last few times I will be there for the DURATION! Please wake me up when the last people start leaving. I'll bring VINHOS on Saturday. I'd like to play it again.
Thanks,
Chris

Lots of Games for Sale..... Speaking of clearing out games, I need to make some room. I'm bringing Planet Steam on Saturday... in the big box. If anyone's interested in taking it off my hands for $82 you can have it. Thanks! Chris

4th Saturday gaming! I'll be there ... for the duration! I'm bringing VINHOS and would like to play it. Also, I'd like to learn Dominant Species. I can bring it if needed. I have also not played Sun, Sea, and Sand and would like to learn that... and can bring it.
I DO know Dungeon Lords, surprisingly, and would like to play that, too.
So many games. So little time. ...and knowledge.

8/13 Gaming (2nd Sat) I have a ton of work to do but will probably stop by at the start for a while. I will be signing autographs now that I am the WBC champ of "The Adventurers". Chris

8/13 Gaming (2nd Sat) Wait a minute... no Entemann's chocolate donuts...!?!?!?!

WBC 2011 - Who's going? I like the summary version! For me...
  • Highlight was learning "The Adventurers" winning my heat, the semis, and the final, thereby proving the game is all luck.
  • I won a heat of Ingenious but that wasn't enough to get to the next round.
  • I won a heat of Navegador but got thrashed in the Semi's by a young girl who took us all to school.
  • I lost three heats of Lost Cities and gave up.
  • I took my usual thrashing in Merchants of Venus, but borrowed the game to study up!
  • I played in one of the Wits and Wagers games. I joined a team late, dragging them from a huge stack of chips to nothing.
  • I played Stone Age and discovered a great way to win... the first half of the game and then vanish in to thin air. Things seemed to be going so well...
In Open Gaming
  • I played Egizia about 5 times. Like it more each time I played.
  • I played Small World/Underground and felt like it was more fiddly than SW, without offering much more game enjoyment.
  • I learned Vineta, although didn't get to finish it.
  • I played a LOT of 7 Wonders with the Leaders and figure I'll always play with Leaders from now on.
  • I played some Tichu but somehow my love of the game was not transferred to the others who three of us tried to enlist.
  • I played Ra in both the tournament (Twice) and open gaming and proved last years trip to the Semis was a fluke.
  • I learned Innovation but it didn't turn me on. For the time and effort I'd rather play 7 Wonders or Dominion.
  • I avenged my tournament Stone Age loss with another open loss. I guess that's not really avenging.
  • I tried playing Dominant Species twice but both games bogged down and people had to leave. Anyone want to buy it!?!
See you soon!

WBC 2011 - Who's going? PS... I love Vegas Showdown and don't think it gets the respect it deserves.

Games for Sale Hi Kevin,
I'll take Cosmic Encounters (AH edition) I should be at John's on Saturday. As I look at the list again and again, I'll probably get tempted by more stuff, too.
Thanks!

Games for Sale Hi Kevin,
For example... I'll also take King Oil.
Somebody stop me.
Thanks,

Friday 9/2/2011 Gaming I just learned my company is off Friday 9/2. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in doing some gaming during the day. I have dinner plans, so we'd need to knock off around 5, but I am open to starting as early as anyone wants. Any interest?
Thanks,
Chris

Friday 9/2/2011 Gaming UPDATE! Due to underwhelming response Friday is canceled (Not the whole day, but the gaming with me aspect). Catch you next time at John's.
