Got to Lancaster early Saturday before the start of pre con HRC but I had a game in my pocket: Battle for Hill 218. Love this little game. I met the Finnish team and taught them. Played three games and watched two of the fellow Finns go at it. They liked this quick game too.

Sunday is my VIP time. Had to miss HRC but this game I'm addicted to. Lost both games but I'm getting closer. My son arrived Sunday and we relaxed and got in a game of Battle for Hill 218.

4. Board Game: Manoeuvre [Average Rating:7.32 Overall Rank:422]

Monday is Manoeuvre for my son Brad and me. He owns me in this game but I still hold my own in the tournament. Won my first 3 games to advance, so did Brad. Then I made a mistake and played my Brits against the Turks and lost putting me at 3-1 and losing out on points to advance to the next round. Had I played the Americans, worth more points, and still lost I would have been the highest 3-1 player and advanced. lesson learned for next year. Brad went on to the finals and took 2nd and the wood. Brad's schedule differed from mine and I can't recall all his events, so I'll just mention his results here. A good year for him as he took 2nd in Manoeuvre, 3rd in House Divided, 4th in Lost Cities and 4th to 6th in Acquire haven't seen the results yet. Rest of the day was relaxing and playing Brad some games.

Tuesday was the auction and store where I bought LotR the Confrontation Deluxe set for $20. Wanted to learn this game and play in the tournament. Played about 10 games before the Sat tourney. Went to the Battlelines demo and mulligan very few showed up. As I heard about this game there is a gem in there somewhere but oh those rules. So true. I like the game but it is so hard to decipher except for Jeff Billings. Even stayed up late trying to figure this out in between game of LotR.

Believe this started Tuesday night. I like this game a lot and got to the semi finals last year. Not this year. Played in all 4 heats and took 4 2nd's so that got me nowhere. Still enjoy the game.

Wednesday was the battlelines tourney. Two people showed up me and my opponent. We were so confused, we had to keep having Jeff come over every 5 minutes to explain a rule. As time was running out before Paydirt I conceded to my opponent. So I got a bogus 2nd, no wood though. Again I know I would enjoy this game if I could comprehend the rules :-(

Wednesday afternoon was my AFC Paydirt. I was Jax and lost to Oak. As I have never won a game of paydirt (4 years now) I still call myself a "newbie" when playing others.

I took 4th last year and wanted to give it a try again. I play a ton of LC games online at yourturnmyturn.com and at home with my daughter. Anyway I entered two heats won one lost the other and scheduling prevented me from entering the other heats. At 1-1 chances are slim for a person to advance. But love this quick addictive game.

10. Board Game: A House Divided [Average Rating:7.09 Overall Rank:629]

One of my favorite games. It goes against War at Sea which I also love on Thursday morning. But WaS is well established and well run and I really want to see House Divided back and stay so I entered this for the second year. Sorry War at Sea, I miss you. Anyway, I lost 3 games did must better last year. This is the one Brad took third in. Hopefully House Divided, if back, will move to a different time so I can play War at Sea. My most difficult choice of the convention.

One of my favorites. I usually do well in this game but no wood yet. Won my first pod 3-0 with two breakthroughs. Second round I won 5-1. Next round I lost 5-4 in a close one and ended up in 4th. I'm getting better at this game.

Was looking forward to this simple yet very strategic game. Reminds me of chess in a sense ( and a hard core chess player here). Has a lot of strategies. I won 3 games and lost 3 but lost the 3 matches due to tie breaking rules. Looking forward to playing this one for years to come. Glad I bought the game.

Also Saturday ran into an acquaintance from Pittsburgh and previous WBC's we played several games of 218. What a quick playing neat game. Play this at work a lot can get a couple games done in 45 minutes.
Other than checking out the vendors and more open gaming that completed my WBC. And yeah there were problems with the Host and wifi and air conditioning but I love it and can't wait til next year. A great time!
