Boardgames in Creswell #19: A Loco Motive

Creswell Game Day #19 (just ten minutes south of Eugene) is a free gaming event that starts at 2pm.

What will we be playing this time?
Our gaming group has been gaining steam, so in order to stay on track, our next gaming get together will have, you guessed it, a unicorn theme. Wait, sorry, that's a typo. I meant train theme. Everyone is encouraged to bring train-themed games that they would like to play. (Or any game you'd like to play, train-centric or not.) For example, our host will be bringing Paris ConnectionTrains and even Ticket To Ride (sure, why not).

Paris Connection is actually a fast economic game with a train theme. Players increase the reach of several train companies as their rails stretch across France. But beware, increasing the value of one company decreases the value of another, so it's a constant balancing act between helping yourself and your opponents.

This game has it all! Economics, stock speculation, France! ... Gee, that sounded better in my head. Well, did I mention that I'll be bringing other games too? I did? Good.

Feel free to post a comment listing any games you're considering bringing. It may help reduce the learning curve (ie: less time explaining, more time playing) if we have an idea of what to expect.

We usually have the entire Community Center to ourselves, meaning no background noise or crowds. It's a great place for gaming!

The community center is at 99 South 1st Street in Creswell, just off the main street, behind City Hall and the fire station.

Here is a link to a picture of the Creswell Community Center building:

The room we'll be in is the one on the left in that photo.

Snacks are okay. We just need to leave the room as clean as we found it.

There's plenty of free parking in the center's parking lot.

I hope you can join us. Whether you're coming from Eugene, Springfield or Cottage Grove, it's just a short drive to Creswell to join us. It's well worth it!

Bring 'em on!

    We may have packed more games into this meeting than any other. Two simultaneous games of Trains, a quick, partial game of Bang! The Dice Game, Trans America, Station Master and One Night Ultimate Werewolf. All but one of these games were really fun! ... if you were there, then I think you'll know which game was not like the others.

      Yeah, I downloaded the app. We can try it again next time, and if it doesn't work... take it out back and burn it at the stake.

    Trains! I'll be bringing it.

    I'll also bring Kings of Air and Steam among others.

      I'm all aboard for this! We should definitely conduct an investigation. Since we are looking for possible one-liners, I'm going to call it Operation Monorail. It is a tender subject for some, so to avoid the loss of esteem, I'm going to suggest we only question those with locomotives.

      Last week was all about the booty...this week it's all about the caboose. Yeah... I went there! Take that you little punsters!
