Theme Game Day #10 – The Unopened

Almost caught up to the present. A couple weeks back, after the craziness of the holiday season finally wound down, our group took stock of our collections and we realized that we still had a lot of games still in the shrink wrap. Not all of them from Christmas or Hanukkah, either. So we took…

Theme Game Day #9 – Location Games

If I was rich, and wasn’t scared of flying, this post would have pictures of each game being played in the location where the game is set. But I’m not rich, and I am terrified of airplanes…so we have a series of games set in far off locations, being played in Dublin, Ohio.

Theme Game #8 – The Apocalypse!

This one’s going to be short for a couple reasons. Mainly because we only played three games before I ultimately decided I just couldn’t bear being around people anymore (I had a screaming headache that day). It’s also going to be short because one game I have almost nothing to say about it, and another I intend…

Theme Game Day #7 – Lena Day!

My game group meets every Monday at the store I work at (have I mentioned it? I have? Too bad. Beyond the Board in Dublin, Ohio. Go there!). It usually starts out at my friend Tim and myself, sometimes Matt. Later Ron shows up, and even later than that is Lena. Others float in and…

Theme Game Day #6 – Alan Moon Games

Last time, we did boat games. In the mix of potential games was a little obscure Alan Moon game called “Surf’s Up Dude” which doesn’t have boats…but that’s beside the point. As an excuse to get it played, we decided to make a week all about Alan Moon games.

Theme Game Day #5 – We’re On A Boat!

This week was originally just going to be pirate-themed games since there are more than enough pirate games out there these days. However, as we were sitting around talking things over, a couple of games came up that we decided we really wanted to play. One of those, Vikings, of course didn’t get played. But…

Theme Game Day #4 – Deckbuilding

Deck Building games have become a favorite genre of mine. Maybe it’s a remnant of my Maagic: The Gathering days. I really enjoy searching for combos. So it made sense that after a week filled with card games, our group decided to delve into a few deck building games. We only got to three different…

Theme Game Days #3 – Card Games

Week 3 we decided to dig into the world of card games. We pretty much stayed away from “traditional” card games…that will probably come another week. I don’t think we played many new to us or really obscure games this week, but it was an enjoyable day nonetheless. So let’s shuffle up and deal!
