Since these are old reports, I am just going to list them in one long thread. Read them at your own pace. Enjoy. If you have question about any of the games it would probably be best to open a new thread.
Including CharCon, the various library days, and our regular meetings, we played 327 games in 2006. I did not count but probably less than 30 were repeat games. From a gaming perspective, it was a good year!

We were three this evening. Kris has made a list of older titles he wanted to give a go. So, we prioritized by what we felt were best with three players.
San Marco. This was first to the table and I feel works best with three players. It is not bad with four players, but with three, you can watch and agonize on the card split. With four players, the split decisions are hidden and it feels like a little down time. This is a very nice majority placement game with some really nice decisions.
Mexica. Another fine action point game from Kramer. This brought up the topic of ranking the set of Tikal, Mexica, Java, and Torres. You can decide how you would place them. This one is a very good area majority game where you decide where the areas are! A good time and strong game.
New England. We wanted to use a standard set up since Kris or James had not played before but, there is only a standard set up for 4 players. I then think Kris and James decided to gang up on the “guy that played before” as they did their best to box me in. (BTW it didn’t work) This is a fun little drafting game that has not seen the table in a while.
Ticket to Ride. Yes, Kris had not tried this major title yet. Somehow, James managed to get tickets all the way around the board with a massive run. It was almost perfect for the longest run with only a couple of trains not being used. Needless to say, he kicked us bad.
