    I had a great time! Thank you to those that brought games and had the patience to teach us new players the rules. If I had to offer one suggestion it would be to play a game twice before changing games. It would help better solidify the rules in one's mind and the 2nd round would be even more enjoyable and at a proper pace than the first game.

      Good suggestion!

    We started out the day with my new card game, Parade. Alice in Wonderland characters form a parade of cards, which players add to. Depending on the color and number of the card, the player may acquire negative points from other cards in the parade.

    Then we switched to Tangiaki, a game of exploration in the South Pacific. We had a good time, even though we got a fair number of the rules wrong. .In addition to the ones we caught mid-game, there were a few others I found when I got home, which I will list in the next post (stupid character limit!):

    The last game of the day was Dungeon Roll, another new game of mine. We each got to delve only twice (instead of the normal three times), but we had a lot of fun battling goblins, skeletons, blobs, dragons, and more! At the point when we had to end, I was in first place, but it still could have been anyone's game!

    A great first meetup at our new home at J. Gumbo's!

      Other rule errors in Tongiaki were:

      1. During initial placement, a player CANNOT fill the third berth on a beach. This slows down the evacuation of Tonga, thus changing the flow of the whole game.

      2. During expansion, the player may not add more of his boats than the number of beaches on the island, and a max of one boat per beach.

      3. The rule about evenly distributing boats that discover land only applies to one boat per beach; after that, the player is free to place any remaining boats on any beaches he chooses.

      4. If more boats travel to an island than will fit, the player returns any excess boats to their owner(s); the active player decides which boats land and which are returned.

      5. One option that we were not aware of is that, instead of taking any actions, the player may remove all his boats from the board and place one boat on a new island. He reveals new tiles and adds them to the board wherever he chooses. As soon as the first island tile is revealed and placed, the player places a Boat on one of that island’s beaches This ends his turn.

      6. If a player has no boats on the board, then instead of placing a boat on any island (which we did correctly), he may instead place two boats on Tonga.
      - Probably all of this changed the game rather significantly. I'll know better next time!
