CabinCon V

Well the first time we got a cabin, friends and family, I was celebrating my bachelor's degree in Anthropology. The second year it was to celebrate my master's degree in Education. Again, more fun, food, and friends.

Realizing we had a pretty good thing on our hands, and that I wouldn't be graduating from anything else pretty much ever, the third year took on a new focus (less family, more games) and became just a big ole weekend of gaming. Year four came around, we took what we learned from the previous three cabins, and it was even better (though I realize now I never did write up a report on it).

Now the summer is upon us. Good friends who have moved away are making the trek back to the hills of Appalachia, and CabinCon V is upon us. I've queued this up to coincide once again with the heart of the revelry, and this year I will follow up once I'm back and recuperated!

Here's a short list of what games will be on hand:
  • 7 Wonders
  • Agricola
  • Ascension
  • Blood Bowl
  • Carcassonne
    • Traders and Builders
  • Ca$h ‘n Gun$
  • Catacombs
  • Dominion
    • Intrigue
    • Potions
    • Prosperity
    • Seaside
  • Forbidden Island
  • Galaxy Trucker
  • Martians!!!
  • Munchkin
    • (x2 card expansions)
  • Pandemic
  • Race for the Galaxy
    • Gathering Storm
  • Settlers of Catan
    • Cities & Knights
    • Seafarers
  • Settlers of America: Trails to Rail
  • Shadows over Camelot
  • Sherlock
  • Small World
    • Tales & Legends
  • Ticket to Ride: America
  • Ticket to Ride: Europe
    • 1912
  • Thunderstone
    • Wrath of the Elements
Over-planning is a trademark of our group, and even if the cabin was a week long instead of a weekend, I still don't think we'd have time to play everything here! The menu will include all of the kingly fare we've pampered ourselves with in the past, and beverages that will endlessly flow into some fancy and some ancient drinking vessels.


  1. I wish we had a cabincon in our area >.>

  2. can't see the list for some reason - just a big black space... :/

  4. @LoneIslander: It's fun, I'm there now!

    @DimmyK: Welcome aboard! Fixed the text!

    @Drax: Yeah! Ninja list!

  5. Sounds like it'll be an awesome weekend! I love that cabin, looks like a treehouse for grownups :)

  6. Our cabin was much more modern, but I love the one is this pic, I'd live there if I could get away with it!

    I'm back, and very worn out. We played lots of games, ate lots of food, drank lots of know, the works. It was a good time, I'll have to write something up soon.
