This geeklist is intended to allow the DGM attendees to try and coordinate games they want to play as well as mark games that were played at the Monthly DGM event and the Thursday Game Nights at the DGM.

This helps new and prospective members by allowing them to see what folks want to play as well as what gets played. In addition it helps support the publishers that donate games to our library.

We will give geek gold to the users posting games played into this geeklist.

If I can't get a DS game, I've also been interested in playing Arcadia Quest if anyone wants to play Friday night.

Was going to leave, but then ended up visiting with Tony over by the rack of games, and 2 guys invited us to play Camel Up. Tony had to leave, but I have been wanting to try this one out, so I gave it a whirl.

Got killed by the other 2, but enjoyed it, another one that I'll keep an eye open for a good deal or a trade, as the fact that it's chaotic gambling fun, and plays all the way up to 8 is great for my group.

Had a very nice first ever DGM, and hopefully I'll be able to attend again soon!

So I got to teach a game this time - Diamonds.

I hadn't played since BGG Con 2014, but it's easy to pick up, and so away we went on this fun trick taking game. I got picked on somewhat in the first round (made sense as I'd just won the previous game and then was the only one who had played this one), but then amazingly flew under the radar the next several rounds, and thought I had a good chance to win, but another guy was able to take me down (can't remember his name tho!)

Fun.

Anyone interested in teaching and playing DS on Friday night? Looking for around 3-4 players total to keep play time down.

Another game I'd been wanting to try out.

Played a 6 player game, and despite Tony playing blue jumping out to a big lead, I was able to get within striking distance in the 2nd round, and then pulled off a major point grab by nabbing 3 maps, and pulling out a victory!

Will keep my eyes peeled for a good deal on this one, as I think my group will like all the different ways the different roles interact with each other.

7. Board Game: Partisan Politics [Average Rating:6.50 Unranked]

It was my first ever DGM, and I didn't know anyone there, so I wandered around a little bit until someone mentioned that I should try out Partisan Politics, a card game currently up on Kickstarter:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1458051468/partisan-pol...

I enjoyed my 3 player game of this (despite getting killed), and bet it would play much differently with more players. Not sure whether I'll back or not, as I'm really trying to not spend any more money on games for a couple months, but it's only $15 shipped, and had some fun decisions. More likely I'll do a PnP and try it out with my group before backing tho, as I'll be curious to see how it plays with like 5 or 6.

9. Board Game: Shadow Hunters [Average Rating:6.85 Overall Rank:649]

I overheard someone inviting someone else to play this, so I asked if they had room for me, and they kindly said sure. I played as the Shadow Unknown, and tried to lie low until I could figure out who was who. Unfortunately no one ever gave me a hermit card, so I never got to use my special ability. I only had a few others figured out when someone triggered their win condition, but he also killed the 2nd hunter when he did, so myself and my dead fellow Shadow also won.

I liked it, altho honestly I don't know how to feel about splitting the victory that way. But will definitely play again, and was on my to play list, so great that I finally got a chance to try it out!

If this game was half as long, you might really have something. But too long and complicated as currently constructed.
