There were several other BGG users in attendance.

You can't have that many geeks involved in a wedding without playing a few games, so here is a photo of their cake and a list of what I saw played.

Here we see two Meepile Meeples serving a cake-toppers. The cake, BTW, was three dice - a d4, a d6, and a d20.



In front of the cake, there was a cross-stitched sash which read, "I vow to only plot your destruction while gaming," along with the names of the new family and the date.

There were also four cross-stitched game pieces:
1) A Meeple
2) A d20
3) A cannon from Diplomacy
4) A penguin from Hey! That's My Fish! (Or, as we call it, PenguinDome!)


Edit to Add:
My wife has posted pics of the sash (and the BGG reference images she used to design them with) here: http://setauuta.livejournal.com/283241.html

There were a number of non-gamers present. For them, TransAmerica was brought in as the Game Least Likely To Cause Heads To Explode.

Citadels is a game that's very hit-or-miss with strangers. And by "strangers," I mean "people." It went over ... okay.

One table had eight gamers who had had a bit too much to drink, so this was a natural choice.

Because there were eight of them, they needed the expansion, also.

There were kids there. Kids and cars are a natural combination. We used the basic rules and simplified them even further.

It was frustrating - I'm not kid-friendly most of the time, because I lack patience. Playing this with a kid, a drunk mom, and the father of the groom is not my ideal mix for this game.

Another game that is good for the non-gamer. I saw one table playing this one.

Katie and Natalina (two friends who are part of our usual Game Night crowd) played a game of this one.

I had a chance to play a quick game of Q-Jet 21XX, too. The Groom had purchased the game as a gift for me when he visited Japan a few years ago.
