My GF just picked up Forbidden Island (speaking of co op games) which is supposedly like a Pandemic or Defenders of the Realm. We haven't tried it yet though

It does a lot for board games, which are usually seen by people outside terribly dry, to say nothing of being nerdy.

I s'pose I've come to like card games a lot more - I got my friends addicted to all the Munchkins.

I got a list of must plays for you then

Thunderstone- A deck building game where you have to compete with other players to build a deck capable of gaining the most victory points

Ascension- In some ways similar to Thunderstone, but streamlined to a mere 3 game mechanics

Nightfall- While I hate it's theme, I love the everyone plays on everyone's turn mechanic

Dominion- Probably my least favorite on the list, but its popularity is a lumbering juggernaut, so you will likely never want for more players to play it

Quarriors!- Not a deck/card game, but similar in its mechanic, you buy dice that represent creatures and spells to get enough points to win the game, lots of fun there

Gone gone. A woman´s mind can be a little strange sometimes. But it´s better when these things happen early I guess, 2 months is nothing.

Finally played it, it is fast paced and pretty difficult to win as far as co op games go. You pick a role from a list of a team of treasure hunters and of course they all have different useful skills (some more useful than others obviously). You have to recover 4 treasures from the island as it sinks. If too much island sinks, you can't get to the rendezvous point and everyone loses. The island sinks really fast. We played on the beginner difficulty and it was tough, I can't imagine playing on expert where the island is sinking at twice the rate.

The next 4 days will be the Buckeye Game Fest. I won't have a ton of pictures of this, because it is mostly just playing games that are out or have been out for awhile. It is in essence an extended CABS meeting. But if I play anything I think is really cool I will post a pic of it here.

Is the Buckeye Game Fest as exciting as it sounds?

I remember playing Dream Phone with my buddy when we were 13. It belonged to my sister and she was staying at some girl's house over the night. I won. It was pretty excellent and to this day I can hoard over him that Jamal liked me better than him. Because his creepy robotic voice said over the phone "You're right, I really like you!"

I played the online-version of Memoir 44 last evening...never played Memoir before...seems like a really fun game but I think there´s no german version out there which is strange, given how popular the game is in the states...

Oh and my Kickstarter-Copy of eaten by zombies arrived the other day but I haven´t had time to take a look at it yet.

You could probably get a smaller game company to publish it if it is popular with play testers

So I picked up copies of 7 Wonders and Smallworld for cheaper than I could get them online. I think this guy is getting all my future game purchasing business, cause he beat competitor prices in everything he sold

Alright, Saturday is Essen-Day. I still don´t know which games to pick up...I´m not willing to spend TOO much money on the stuff right now, but some games have to be purchased...I think, I´ll take Eminent Domain and Aries Project (if I can find it)...but what else...
