Two days from we'll be kicking off our sixth mini-con of supergaming and culinary indulgences. Tomorrow we've got another Thor's Day Hero, and Friday I'm sure Mr. L has something special in store for us with Friday Rucht Hour, so this is the last post by me until I get back. I'll try to recap the last five preceding mini-cons:
- Cabin I: I received my first two European boardgames; Carcassonne and Settlers of Catan. We tried to play Blood Bowl at this one, but it was not conducive to extended trains of thought.
- Cabin II: Same location as last time, more games, more food including steaks, ribs, seafood, and a keg of Newcastle.
- Cabin III: We saw a bear come up to the house, someone fell down a flight of stairs but miraculously didn't spill their drink, and two inebriated people who have never played Wii Golf before destroyed all sober challengers who dared swing a virtual club on the same green.
- Cabin IV: This one was cool because there were a pair of standup classic arcade machines. I played more Time Pilot '84 than any XBox or Wii games combined. It was almost an injury-free cabin except for the wasp sting on someone's genitalia.
- Cabin V: This one saw the epic eight hour game of Settlers to date; six players with both Cities and Knights and Seafarer's expansions in full effect.
We found out early on that miniatures games are not suited for the cabins, you've got the hassle of lugging all of those armies up there, plus terrain, but then you have to worry about keeping everything safe and finding all the table space. Quick play games and easy to learn rules are the most imperative. There's a lot of games on this list I am eager to play; Super Dungeon Explore, Eminent Domain, Alien Frontiers, and Stone Age immediately come to mind. We'll see how it all goes, until next time, enjoy!
