Thursday Night: The Path Less Taken

I'm jumping on Nicole's theme idea.

The Path less taken. Sometimes this is the best path to take not because of the new adventures you have but because your fellow teammates won't try to block you from climbing that mountain or for hiding treasure in an abbey. These are games that have multiple physical paths to your goal which can be blocked or in some other way be jeopardized by your teammates. Games I shall be bringing:

Montego Bay: Choose wisely or your opponents will knock you back.

Templar: Hide the goods but beware of the Templar Spy.

Cinque Terre - Sell your goods in the French villages before your opponents to complete orders (ok, this might be a stretch)

    The games were fun. I had a nice time. And getting there "early" gave me time read my online magazine.

    Thanks for everyone who came. I'm pretty sure I didn't have this originally starting at 6pm so sorry for those who got there early.

    Also my New Year's Resolution is to be able to teach games in a concise way. I'm getting there! Thanks for bearing with me. And for Jim heckling me like usual.

      I thought you taught Montego Bay great! It's mah new favorite game. :)

      Heckling? I was encouraging! I got there early, but it was all right. I was able to block that out of my mind by playing Blokus.

    Yikes, just saw this is starting now. I thought it was starting at 6:45. So, I'll be at least a half hour late.

      Mee too - did it change?

      January 30, 2014

  • Nicole M

    Wow! 6 huh? I'm late too...

    What about K2? Do you have it?

    1 · January 22, 2014

    • Shawn

      Oh Yeah. I'll bring K2

      January 22, 2014

    • Gene L

      I'd be interested in K2.

    I did find a theme game I own: Blokus!

      I'd say cartagena would count to, even if there is only one path. We still are using each other for progress.

      January 29, 2014

    • Nicole M

      Great idea! I can bring that too.

    What say you to moving the party over to UE Delridge? As of Tuesday, they are open until 10pm Sunday-Thursday, and they'll be accumulating games for us to play (at least, that's my understanding). It might be nice to support their endeavors and it's only 1.7 miles away.

      See also comment on other thread. We already have ALASKA JUNCTION and DELRIDGE in all caps to distinguish them. You can use the "recent places" option when creating new events to get them populated for free.

      Also note, at this particular event, it looks like the owner of the soon-to-be Meeples Games (that we're eagerly awaiting) will be in attendance!
