Thanks to everyone who came! Nine people showed up, and I enjoyed the variety of games played.
Steve, Jon, and Michael were the first to arrive and we got in a few Rock Band songs before Chris and then Dennis arrived. And then the games were on.
First up was Battlestar Galactica with the Pegasus expansion. This was my first time playing the expansion, so I didn't fully appreciate all the nuances of the new game features. The humans won, thankfully. I think an unfortunate Cylon loyalty distribution made it easier on us at the expense of the early execution of Adama (sorry, Steve!). I look forward to playing it again.
By then, more people arrived in time for a round of Arkham Horror. Yog-Sothoth was our enemy, and thanks to some overlooking of the little fine print of "when you're lost in time and space, you get devoured" rule, we managed to win fairly easily. Woopsie. Better vigilance next time.
While Arkham was raging in the kitchen, a few other games were played in the dining room, but I forget the names.
We got in two games of Shadow Hunters, which is always light and mischievous fun. In addition, 25 words or Less was played, followed by Dominion: Seaside.
As far as easy-to-setup party games are concerned, I liked 25-Words. I'd definitely play it again.
Dominion continues to grow on me. Seaside adds some new dynamics that create for some interesting synergies. I have much love for the Treasure Map and Treasury cards. Embargos can kiss my grits. At least until I play it.
Thanks again for attending!
