Only two more game days in winter! Yeah, we need more 80 degree winter days like today!
I'll be there by 1 PM. I'd really like to get in another play of Oracle of Delphi. I'll be bringing Lorenzo and will be happy to teach and play it. Also looking forward to playing any other new stuff.

Lose an hour, gain some gaming! Crap, I could use that hour for sleeping! Anyway, I'll be there by 1 PM or earlier. I'll be bringing Lorenzo with me. But what I really need to play is Oracle of Delphi. I have a deadline for an article coming up in which I give my top 5 games of last year and I need to see if Delphi can overtake Railroad Revolution for the last spot. Might want to play RR as well, to see if it can hold off the challenge, and maybe GWT, to see if it can take the top spot from Lorenzo. But my main goal is to get another play of Delphi in. Scott, if you're sick of it, I should be able to teach it. Anyway, see you all there.

Spring is Sprung! Time for some gaming I'll be there by 1 PM. If folks are interested, I'd like to try an older game of John's called Mines of Zavandor. It has nothing to do with Scepter of Zavandor (that's just branding), but, instead, is a 1 hour long auction/tableau building game by Alexander Pfister, of Mombasa and GWT fame. I've never played it, so I thought it might be fun to try out the designer's first published game.
Other than that, I'd like to play new stuff, as usual. GWT would be fun (preferably 3-player), maybe Railroad Revolution with the designer-approved fix. I've never played Roll Player, so if that's available, that might be good to try. Pretty much open for anything.

April 22 -> fourth Saturday gaming I won't be able to make it, as household chores will sadly take precedence. Hope those who do show have a great time and I'll try to make the next session!

2nd Saturday of June - 6/10 I will make my triumphant return this Saturday. Should be there by 1 PM, although I'll leave a little earlier than usual (no later than 10 PM). Lorenzo is finally sponge-worthy: yay! Always up for that. Be happy to try out the new Medici card game, just to see if there's more to it than it seems. Might try to sneak in Terraforming Mars or Mines of Zavandor or whatever. See everyone there!

4th Saturday gaming is on for 6/24 I'll be there early and will try to leave by 10:30 or so. I want to play all the games that Chris suggested--in one day! Actually, I'm not sure that John has a copy of Automobile. I'll bring my copy and refresh myself on the rules, on the off-chance we can arrange a game of this Wallace classic. Revised Railroad Revolution sounds good, too; hopefully, the variant nerfs the dominant strategy. And maybe even give the Medici card game another shot, this time without the outrageous luck. See everybody there!

2nd Saturday, 7-8 OMG, a Laura sighting! It must have been the donuts that lured her out in the open! :-)
I will be bringing my just purchased copy of the Coal Baron card game and would be happy to teach and play it. I'm also bringing a decade old Wallace design called Tempus, which is kind of a civ-lite kind of title, in case people are interested in what life was like in ancient times (you know, like 2006!). Also up for other stuff. Maybe GWT, or Railroad Revolution with the variant. Maybe even Patchistory, although I'd need someone else to teach it. Anyway, I'll be there a bit before 1 PM. Maybe even with donuts!!!

July 22, fourth saturday gaming I should be there at 1 PM or a bit earlier. None of the longer games Chris mentions sound that enticing, but I'm sure I can find some other titles that will work. GWT sounds like fun or maybe Terraforming Mars. If someone brings Yokohama, I wouldn't mind giving that another shot; it was one of the three Meeples Choice Award winners, so maybe there's more to it than I've seen so far. See you all there!

7/22/17 Gaming - Meatier game on the menu? Haven't had the chance to try out the new Vinhos. It's supposed to be more streamlined, so I'd be willing to try that if it makes an appearance.
Oh, and Chris...YOU'RE CRAZY!!!
7/21/2017 12:42:39 PM
7/22/17 Gaming - Meatier game on the menu? Chris, sorry that my restrictive tastes in games disturbs you. To try to make it up to you, might you be interested in a game of Wallace's Automobile? It's not as long as some of the things you've listed, but it's pretty intense. If you think that might work for you, I'll bring it.

7/22/17 Gaming - Meatier game on the menu? Always up for Goa, but only with 4. Would probably choose Fluxx over 7 player Scythe.

Gaming tomorrow 8/26 I'll be there by 1 PM. I'll bring a recent purchase called the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game, in case there are fans of the Harry Dresden books (the game should work well for non-fans as well). I also thought I'd start bringing some older titles, that may be new to some in the group. This week, I'll bring Capitol, a terrific city-building Moon/Weissblum title. It really only works with 4 players, but is great with that number. And, as usual, I'm up for any of the recent stuff. See you there!

2nd Saturday gaming, 9/9 I should be there at 1 PM. I got to play Lisboa earlier this week and it is definitely NOT the game for me, so I'll gracefully bow out of that one. If the new, streamlined version of Vinhos is available, I'd like to try that. Otherwise, I'd be up for Yokohama or anything else newish. See everybody there!
9/9/2017 9:29:20 AM
2nd Saturday gaming, 9/9 Looks like I'll be showing up a little late, probably around 2:30.
Marvin, if ABG was a beauty contest, y'all would have kicked me out long ago. I hope you're able to attend. We love you no matter what your appearance and I'm sure a few whiskers will only enhance your already considerable sex appeal. :-)
Ed, I'm always up for Lorenzo.
9/20/2017 11:19:41 PM
Gaming, Saturday, Sept 23rd, 1pm I'll be there at 1 PM or a little earlier. I'm always up for Lorenzo and would be happy to play Yokohama again. Plus, anything else new, of course.
Former ABGer Michael Jarvis will probably be joining us as well.

Fourth Saturday? I should be able to make my triumphant return to ABG this week, hopefully not too much later than 1 PM. I'd love to try any of the new Essen games, maybe Clans of Caledonia, if it's available. See y'all there!
12/8/2017 9:56:18 PM
2nd Saturday of December! All right, I should be there sometime tomorrow, but I have no idea when! It might be at 1, it might be around 2, or it could easily be at 7 or later! When I do show up, I'd love to play some new stuff, be it Keyper, anything I played last time (Merlin, Clans, or Pioneers), or something else entirely. I'll try to get there as soon as I can, but right now, there's no way to predict when it will be, so when I get there, I get there!
12/9/2017 10:44:29 AM
2nd Saturday of December! Okay, looks like I'll be showing up between 7and 8. With luck, I might be able to squeeze in a couple of games with y'all.
4/25/2018 3:25:34 PM
ABG game day - 4/28 I plan on making my triumphant return, after my long absence, this Saturday. Really looking forward to getting together with everyone and playing some great games! I'm up for anything new, including Essen stuff. Gotta make up for lost time! See you Saturday!
5/12/2018 12:30:23 AM
ABG game day -- 5/12 Due to a last minute cancellation, I will be able to join you all for gaming. Yay! I'll be there by 1 PM, but once again, will have to leave by 6 or so. I'd love to play Gaia. But I'd also love to try out Nusfjord and Transatlantic. As a wise man once said, "so many games, so little time!". See you all tomorrow.
