A new year, a new thread.

We've been playing games (almost) every Monday night for about 10 years. We play at the Comic Warehouse in Brampton from 6pm - 11pm (more often midnight). We get an average of about 15 people each week. You can check the 2009 thread to see what was played last year and this thread, as it builds, to see what is played this year.
You can contact us at (905)799-3509 (store phone).

This week (Monday January 4th 2009)

17 players.

Games played:

Alea Iacta Est (twice; two different groups)
Cavum
World Without End
Conflict Of Heroes
Dominion (with expansions; multiple times)
Chaos In The Old World
Skyline 3000
St. Petersburg. (with expansion)
Vasco Da Gama
Claustrophobia
Cardcassonne

As you can see, a variety of games get played. We have about 1500 games to choose from and some people bring games that we don't have. If you're even remotely interested come on by and check it out.

Games played:

Infinite City (twice)
Factory Manager (twice)
Power Grid Brazil
Hab & Gut
Race For The Galaxy
Assyria
Chaos In The Old World

Another interesting mixture of games. I ended the night with 4 games of Dominion (4 player, random selection from all 3 sets), and came second in all 4 games. Usually by 1 or 2 points. Very annoying.

Games played:

Homesteaders
Terra Prime
Chaos
Runewars
Macao (twice; different groups)
Alea Iacta Est
Thunderstone
Infinite City

Played Chaos with the game's designer Francois Valentyne. Interesting little card game which I think will play better with more than the 3 players we had. Finished the night with my first game of Thunderstone. Despite the obvious similarities to Dominion, this is a different game. I'll try it again soon.

Games played:

Macao (twice; same group)
Martian Rails
Thunderstone
Runewars
St. Petersburg
Wizard

Small week. Probably due to the Family Day holiday here in Ontario. Some people probably thought we weren't playing. Played Macao twice (my favourite game at the moment). Did encounter a potential problem with straying cubes. When you have a lot of cubes on a few sides of your septagon it's important to make sure they don't merge.
Back next week, hopefully with a bigger crowd again.

Games played:

Dominion (with (and without) expansions) (multiple games)
Days Of Steam
Samurai
Macao
Citadels
Wizard
Tzaar

Canadian gamers don't fear a little bit of snow. Well, at least 8 of them don't. Small turn out this week. Probably due to the storm. Played Days Of Steam. Wasn't initially impressed. May try it again. Really not much else to say.

18 players

Games played:

Shipyard
El Grande
Macao
Formula De (Buenos Aires)
Carson City
Wizard (twice)

A good number of players, but only a few games played. Some of the games took a while to play. If you're wondering why the Wizard card game has shown up a lot in the last few weeks, Mark, Georgia and Joe played it a lot on a cruise recently and it's become our 'go to' end of the night game. It's a good game to fill the last 30 minutes or so while waiting for the other game(s) to finish.

Games played:

Shipyard
Origo
Robber Knights
Infinite City
Settlers Of The Stone Age
Macao
Wizard (twice)

Kind of a wet night (inside and out; stupid bathroom leak), so a slightly lower turnout. Not a whole lot to say about the games. Jason played Wizard for the first time (with us regular players). He said he would rather play Wizard than Macao.

See you next week.

Monday April 5th 2010

19 players.

Games played:

Heads Of State
Shipyard
Wizard
Martian Rails
Glory To Rome
Amun Re
Ra
Abagio
Dominion (with expansions; multiple games)
Metropolys
Liar's Dice

A good turn-out this week. Played Glory To Rome for the first time in a long while. (Hadn't played it in a while because Cambridge Games had taken $500+ from me and not sent any product. Just playing got my blood boiling again. But... I just got a partial refund and assurances the games will be sent soon, so I was able to play again without wanting to kill someone.) Still enjoy the game, although this one fell apart at the end. A combination of factors (vending machine breaking, people coming in, phone ringing) made what should have been the last 5 minutes last about half an hour. Somewhat frustrating. Other than that an OK night. Hope to see more people next week.

Monday April 12th 2010

17 players.

Games played:

Lost Valley
Carson City
Samarkand Routes to Riches
Catacombs
Axis & Allies Battle of the Bulge
Shipyard
Power Grid Spain Portugal (with variant power plants)
Amun Re
Nuns on the Run
Wizard

Played Samarkand and liked it a lot. A good intro game for the similar more complicated rail games. Even though it is easier than other similar games it still has some interesting decisions during play. I`ll play this again. Also played Power Grid; a good game, but not one of my favourites. I had noticed that Glen wins most of the time so I made a number of moves that, while helping me, also hindered Glen. We both powered 17 cities on the last turn but I had $6 to his $3. Tie-break win!
More games next week.

Monday April 19th 2010

18 players.

Games played:

Shipyard
Power Grid
Betrayal At House On The Hill
Runewars
St. Petersburg. (with exp.)
Lab Rats (prototype)
Brawling Battleships Steel
Wizard
Tzaar
Catacombs
Saga

I could mention the Power Grid game that went 3 turns with players at 16 cities before the deadlock was broken, or the Shipyard game that took 4 hours, but I'm going to go with the quote of the night from the Wizard game. (Wizard is a trick taking game with 4 extra wizard cards which can be played anytime to win the hand and 4 extra jester cards that can be played anytime to lose the hand. In recent games Georgia has had far more than her fair share of wizards.) Jason looks at his hand and says "Georgia may be the queen of the wizards, but I'm the king of the jesters". That would explain so much (including the earlier game of Shipyard that he dragged out to 4 hours).
More next week.

It seems a group of us have been hooked on card games (Ultimate Rummy, Wizard, Five Crowns) for the last few weeks. But a bunch of other games have been played too. If you're interested in playing a specific game, come on by. You'll probably find someone interested in it.
