Are you ready for the BGG Blackout?

So is going down for a day or two at the least.
How am I supposed to cope?
How are you planning on coping? :)

Tons of gaming...

This week I had the chance to go both to the League City game night, and also hosted at my place. At cafe Express on Tuesday I got to play 2 games back to back of my fav card game, Race for the Galaxy. It seems that everytime I play with the new VP goals, I get 'distracted' and lose my pace. I lost both games. I think I prefer to play without them, but then again, I've played the game now 30 times, and they do add some variety to it. I also got to play Great Wall of China. Brent taught Mike and me. I won by grabbing some of the high VP tiles early in the game. Interesting filler.

On Wed at my place, I had the pleasure of hosting for Lewis, Mike, Denise, and Lance. We first played a game of Chicago Express. I finally can say that I am getting better at this game (and I better after 3 games). very interesting quick train game. Then we split up. Lewis, Lance and I played neuroshima hex. Cool scifi abstract game that might replace my Hive (which I think was originally Marty's opinion). Last but not least we played 2 games of Roll Through the Ages, a short and sweet Civ-lite dice game. It's civ, it's short (about 40min), and it's got dice. Perfect. Plus, it's kind of addictive. Since it's short, you can't just build everything in one game. You are going to have to play more times to try out different combinations of developments (which grant different abilities).

I can't make it tomorrow to the Fuddrucker's meetup... have fun! Next week I'm shooting again for Wed... I'll let you all know. Why the pic? Well, I thought it was funny, and I've always been a Street Fighter fan......Street Fighter 4 is coming out for the XBOX this month, and I can't wait to try it.

It's been pretty quiet here over the past month. Well not any more. Dust the blog because I'm hosting again this week on Wed at 7pm. Come one, come all.

I MAY have obtained a bunch of new games over the past 2 months.....

What a long weekend of gaming. Tomorrow back to reality (work!). Hope everyone had a great Holiday break.

I'll post a small report of the things I got to play, and some thoughts on them. I won't be hosting his week. Must detox....
