The Apathy Board Gaming Monday + Request
When I arrived at the gaming venue, Chris, Brian and Sean were racing for that far away galaxy while I perused the comics. Apparently a lot of people like sword wielding mice. At least enough for there to be action figures. Sean came to fetch me and we settled down for a game of hmmm what shall we play. I suggested Tikal, jokingly, cause it was still in my bag o games from Saturday. Brian suggested Alhambra, and Sean voted for Tongiaki. We ended up playing Puerto Rico. Sean's corn economy and my diversified economy lost to the sugar plants Chris had going, but Brian and his bonus shipping VP's pulled it out for the win.
With about 10 minutes left in out game Jon and Michael arrived, and Al had arrived sometime earlier. So they decided to play Race. We finished up Puerto rico and were left with a well....hmmm.....what now thing. So we played no thanks. I did not win. Yay high cards. Then we played bridge, to pass the time. And the table of Go-ers commented on the oddity bridge in the comic book shopness.
It was established that Jon and Sean -- me thinks-- were going to play baseball. But in an odd twist of fate-- no one brought their teams. So we set out to find a game to play that we could do seven with.
But Michael played the food game.
And we played The Devil's Ride to the Castle game. Oddly enough the table was divided quite easily in half. The guys with the keys won it both times, though the goblets almost got it in the end. if they hadn't stolen all out goblets so we had to get them back and not win. But ah well. Al left after game one. And Michael wandered back with his prize from the food game.
Then Brian called it quits. And that left me, Jon, Sean, Chris and Michael to play Smarty Party. Which I lost at. Wonderfully. As per usual as these party trivia games the group seems to like. But it was fun. Though the difference between Rail and Subway as modes of transportation is a bit iffy.
And on to the request. I wanna start another spielbywebgame. Maybe Tikal. Maybe Santiago. Maybe Amun-Re. Maybe all three. Anyone want to join. I would much prefer to play Tikal in person. But unless random peeps wanna play and gather apartment for a smallish gaming session I doubt that will happen. so SBW it is. Any takers. i think most of the peoples in here know my BGG name. Which is Toggy. So message me if you is interested. Or comment. Please :)
