Ok, so the second annual Gathering of Strangers just ended and it was a booming success. There was over 150 people that attended. Jay from Rio Grade Games was there showing us some new stuff. My wife and I had a great time. Here are the games that we played. Please add the games that you played to this list. There was a list that I made last year, but I'm not sure how to link that list to this one.

Things started out Friday night with this game, taught to us by Jay. I was solidly in the lead until the end when I learned that I hadn't been paying attention to how the end game scoring went and I went from first to third.

I played this again today with my wife and this time I was able to pull out a victory thanks to a couple well-timed worm VP wishes. Thanks to Jay for teaching us this game.

I got in two games of this on Friday night. This is a pretty fun game and very fast paced. It got deadlier as the game went on and we got more familiar with it. I didn't do well the first game, but the second one I was the beneficiary of a lucky one-way pot split on the last pot and won the game.

We played a bunch of this on Friday night and I got it in the math trade that was done for the con. I really enjoy this game and I am excited to teach it to my daughter as she gets old enough to play it.

This is the first game I played this morning. Mark Tyler brought his board, and it is a beautiful board. I played about 5 or 6 games of this through the day. I really want to get a board now, but that will probably need to wait due to economic reasons at the moment. But it is a really fun game.

This was high on my list of games I wanted to try, and I got the chance today. 4 of us played and it was the first time for all of us. I can unequivocably say that this game is the best thing to come out of Episode 1, and maybe the only good the to emerge from that travesty. I was on the Federation side and we were the beneficiaries of some really good rolling luck and had Darth Maul win the duel and took down the Gungun shield in the same turn. Once those two things happened, it was pretty easy to kill the rest of the guards and use or bonus cards to good effect.

This is a definate get if I can ever find a decently-priced copy. The owner said that he found it in shrink at a hobby store and the store owner had sold it to him for $30 just to get rid of it. I should be so lucky. But it's a really fun, tense game.

I played a 1-lap race on Zandervoot #1 with 5 other racers. I came in second and everyone seemed to have a good time with it. While it's not my favorite track, ot was nice to play this one for the first time in a long time. Anyone in SLC interested in getting some kind of league together? Anyone have enough tracks to make it worth the time?

I had been telling my wife about this game for a while now, and so she wanted to play it. So we borrowed a copy and played a 4-player game with Ken and his son. His son won, but it was a really cool game. This is definately going on the "To Buy" list because my wife really enjoyed it.

I had played this a month ago and my wife was interested in playing it, so we set up a simple track and played. We also got a game of PitchCar Mini in too, but we preferred the bigger game. This is also on the want list now, but might be almost as far out as Crokinole.

I was able to run one demo of this. Ultimately, this con had way too many multi-player games going on for people to justify a 2 hour 2-player game, so interest in this, Combat Commander, and Twilight Struggle was understandably low. They got about 3 or 4 weeks into it and another game that one of them had been waiting for started and so they stopped (I think, feel free to correct me because I was entertaining my daughter at the time). Either way, it was unfinished, but both seemed to enjoy it.

This was a game that I was interested in for a while now. We were able to snag a copy and play to see if it was worth P500ing the reprint. My wife and I both really enjoyed it. It's a pretty tense game. Definately fits a niche that we have been unable to fill.

The last game of the night was this one. It was one that my wife had been wanting to play. It's ok for what it is, but I don't really like auction games because I suck at them, and sure enough I lost this one too even though everyone was new at it. But my wife enjoyed it so that's good.

There were many other games that I wanted to play, but we just didn't get enough time to. I hope that this runs two days next summer so that there I can get more in and cross more games off my list.

I played a game of this with Brian, Steve, and ?. I couldn't really remember the last time I had played, but I ended up winning. I think it was because I only went negative once.

I played a game of this with the Huddlestons?, Loretta, and ?. I came in after the majority of the rules were explained, so I was a little lost. It turned out to be an interesting game, especially when the weeds came out. I don't even remember who won.

I played a six player game of this with Tawny, Bob, and three others. We did have a traitor in our mix, and it was Bob, and it was patently obvious. He still managed to make us sweat it out until the very end. But--good did win out over evil in the end.

Tawny, Clay, Glen, ?, and I played a 5 player game of Puerto Rico. We had one newby, and the rest of us were a little rusty, except for Glen, who cleaned up and won by a lot. It was fun, and the newby really liked it.

The final game of the evening for me was two rounds of Cloud Nine with Chris, Clay, Tawny, Greg, and Tyler. This was a light little filler with a good dose of guesswork and luck.

Played this twice. Two 5 player games. I won one of them with 3 hero tokens on the last event. That was a little exciting. The other one I finished 3rd. I made a big mistake and had to run the same event 3 times.

I think we played some kind of mixture of numbers 1 and 2. I liked the new rules that we played with.
