Even though we were heading to Germany shortly after this gaming gathering, we were determined to enjoy 4 days of gaming with our friends in Louisville, KY. Our luggage was lost, but we still greatly enjoyed every minute of our experience.

Unfortunately, my spreadsheet got sorted, resorted, and unsorted, so these games are no longer in the order in which we played. But, capturing the games played and any faint memories that I still have of the actual game play seemed like a good idea.

We actually played the original "Royal Turf" version of this game, as we were really looking forward to playing a game with Thor and Sara Samuelson, and this is one of Sara's favorite games. We enjoyed the betting and moving of the horses in the race.

We enjoyed losing this game to Tessa and Sarah Samuelson and Janette Vander Ark, laughing at the dexterity required to "pop" a ball out of one location and over to another location. Goofy fun game from Haba.

At every Gulf Games, there is a Liar's Dice tournament, where the room is filled with the cacophony of dice rolling. I enjoy playing without looking at my dice until I absolutely have to. Earl and I were both knocked out at our first table, a less than stellar showing than in other years.

We enjoyed this new party game with James Miller, Chris & Elaine Lohroff, Dave Vander Ark, and John Palagyi. We laughed as we tried to match others answers, trying not to collect the blocks. We just kept giving back the blocks so that we could keep on playing!

Since we are almost always the first one down to the game room each morning, we usually try to get a game in with Greg Schloesser at that time, after he completes his "host" duties of getting the room set up. We were very excited to pull out a meaty game, one that Greg had learned earlier and was wanting to give another try. We enjoyed the complexity, and debating the end game that needs some tweaking.

We really enjoyed playing one of Dave Vander Ark's favorite games along with Jay Bloodworth, and we were reminded again just how much we enjoy the game as well! We think the original is a little better than the reprinting as China.

From our first experience at this game where we sang an opera about pajamas, to future ones of letters of homework excuses, we love stretching our creative brains with this party game. We loved playing it with James Miller, Dillon Samuelson, Eliane Lohroff, Curt Churchill, and Emma LaBranche.

While we ate our lunch of subs and chips, we decided to play this dice rolling game -- afterall, you gotta get another game in WHILE you eat! The Churchill luck was in force, as they collected numerous tiles.

We started the dinner train one evening, along with Phillip Sasse, and we drank margaritas and ate chips while playing this quick Reiner Knizia card game. This is one of my favorite games (I do enjoy bidding games), although Earl finds it a bit frustrating. After our quick game, we were enjoying the drinks and chips and chatting much more, so the games went away and we slowly gathered the rest of our party and enjoyed the good food and great friends.

Dave Vander Ark brought out this card game for us to play, as it tends to play very well with 3 players. We really enjoyed this trick taking game and hope to buy this one if we ever find it available.

We also got to play a rummy-like game with Cary Cleaver, her own creation, that we can't wait to get a personalized copy from her.

This game was apparently very hot at GenCon or Origins, but it was clearly not very hot with us. We endured and enjoyed the critique of the game as we played, but I doubt we'll play it again.

We were looking for a simple card game to fill some time while we waited for others to return to the game room. It was great to share one of our favorite filler card games with Jack Lindsay and Ward Batty.

We played this with 5 people, and that is definitely too many for this tight game. We enjoy the game play, and we certainly bought a copy for ourselves, but we prefer to play it with 3 or 4 ideally.

Ted Cheatham suggested this quick memory game with "sexy witches." Many of the guys at the table felt misled by the last part of that claim. It was goofy fun, nonetheless, with Ted, Chris Lohroff, Warren Madden, and Craig Berg.

Light goofy fun to kick off one of our days. We played a pirate game, and we acted like pirates nearly the whole way through. Earl's famous dice rolling came into play, and he fell off his chair in a dramatic flair of his bad luck. It felt like an odd addition to the Alea series, since it was so light, but we did like it for what it was.
