Here's a photo from the Feb 10, 2017 Twelve Oaks Game Night:


The games I played that night were:
1) Las Vegas
2) Bruges
3) Cockroach Poker
4) Fury of Dracula (Third/Fourth Edition)
- Dracula started on the west coast of Spain, went up the west coast of France and got into the North Sea, went around Ireland and slipped into the Irish Sea (when we thought he was headed for the Mediterranean). He landed in Liverpool, made his way to London via Manchester....then to the English Channel and back to the North Sea. When he got out of the ocean we were closing in and defeated him in Berlin. Fun game.
5) Lords of Waterdeep (with expansion)
It was a bit of a marathon in Feb!

I didn't notice all the games played at other tables, but Codenames and Munchkin were two that I noticed.

At any rate, it was a fun game night

Also, I will be there by 5pm, so feel free to stop by early.

I'm bringing champions of midgard again. Also, if someone had time stories and wants to bring it, I wouldn't be opposed

I have not heard from Rich at all this week. Many school districts have fall break so maybe he is on vacation.

Friday, October 20, 2017 -- pushed a week due to fall break.

Games Playes:

Indulgence - fun trick taking card game. It was too tempting to 'take the ring' and go for the big payout. The ring gives you a special power, but also makes everyone want to try to stop you. We had so much fun the 1st game, we played it again immediately.

Potion Explosion: - I forgot the rulebook at home, and we were playing that you could take 2 marbles/turn, when in fact, you can only take the 2nd marble, if you take the "-2 points" token.


Costa Rica - I wasn't in this game, but it looked good!

Qwinto - print 'n play version. I had never played. Amazingly engaging experience for 3 D6 and a score-sheet. I dare anyone to play this game for the 1st time and not make an error in where they write a number.

Imhotep - Remembered how quick Imhotep plays. Quick and fun....we finished earlier than the game of Splendor!
Splendor - played on the same table at the same time as Imhotep.

Game night: Friday, February 9, 2018

Games we played:
Hanamikoji
Pandemic: The Cure
Ethnos (x2)
Century: Spice Road

Small game night but a lot of fun. Dan was there for the first time....so it was great to meet him.

We had our first victory in Pandemic the cure.
We played a 5P Ethnos (with all of us playing for the 1st time). We had a good time so we played it again.....with 6P. Simple game, but the special powers of the various factions make it really engaging.

Great Night. Finished by 11pm.
