    Outstanding day of gaming! Our competing madness (that would be March) and a Netrunner tournament affected attendance but not our fun! Thanks to all that came and congrats to David for winning the gift card!

    First up for me would've been Legendary with the Spider-Man expansion but I forgot the Spider-man part! Thankfully Bluegrass has a copy of Legendary in the back so I just bought another expansion and added it to the set. However, we had four other players wanting to spin some webs so I bowed out. Legendary doesn't hold up well to five, I think. Plus I had Matt wanting to try the new edition of Sentinels of the Multiverse, Vengeance, a great alternative.

      Next up was the second game of Bohnanza I've played and also the longest...much too long. Definitely not a six player game and a lot of over thinking of the offers made. I enjoy long games but not a game that isn't supposed to be long. ;)

      Next, Leslie wanted to introduce her friend Kelli to a deckbuilding game, either Legendary or Nightfall. I love Legendary but it's been eons since I played Nightfall and couldn't pass the chance up. Kelli picked the game up very well and actually won! There was a bit of confusion on how the game flowed and how certain mechanics worked but overall I think everyone enjoyed it. Very happy to get this to the table and wish to play it again soon.

      Finally, ended the night with two games of Forbidden Desert. Both ended in disaster. The first by Dave dying of thirst. The second with several attempts to get everyone water because I just knew there was one more Sun Beats Down in the last three cards of the deck. After we started breaking down the game we discovered there wasn't any SBD card left in the deck. I had miscounted. Oops! Well, it has been a year since the Shadows over Camelot game with Gary we all remenisce about but it still doesn't top the time I put three Cylons in a game of Battlestar Galactica!

      Also spied during the day: Eldritch Horror; Spartacus; Galaxy Defenders (which sounds like a bad early eighties cartoon); Eight Minute Empire Legends; Quiddler; Battlestar Galactica; and other.

      See you all in two weeks for our Tabletop weekend event!
