This is a tremendous game, based on Microsoft's game of the same name, but still a great game in its own right. You gain victory points by colonizing and fighting over the New World. Requires about two hours, and up to five people.
If you are a fan of Euro games (Puerto Rico, Carcassonne, Dominion, etc) or "Ameritrash" boardgames (Talisman, Arkham Horror, Cosmic Encounter), then this is the group for you. If you're interested in learning about these strange, cool games, then this is the group for you.
This is a fun group to play board games, socialize and drink beer with. Each week we schedule a few games in advance. You'll always know what we're playing and that someone will be able to teach the rules.
We meet every Thursday (and sometimes on Monday) at Emerald Tavern on Research Blvd. We start right around 7:00 or when most of the Yes RSVPs show up, which ever is earlier.
