Posted by Jim {Power Gamer} | 17-Aug-12 | 41 comments


We’re busy but having an absolute blast at our booth at Gen Con. It’s been great seeing users of the site in person! We’ve seen some great games that have come out and are coming soon.

We’ll post more photos and talk more about Gen Con once we’re back, so on with the discussion of what everyone is playing this weekend!

I hear ya man! Gen Con always got me rev’ed up to play games after we got home! Maybe a day of extended sleep to get the batteries recharged, but otherwise it was another solid week or two of gaming trying out new games, new decks, new strategies, etc. I can’t wait to get back to Gen Con

You’d think GenCon would cause gaming burnout, but there is Roleplay, Magic The Gathering, and everyone pulling out the games we bought to try out out at the lake cabin this weekend.

Great photos, glad Gen Con was a huge success!!

I really need to put up a new review this week, I’m getting stale and moldy!

Saturday is Guild Wars 2… so I’ll be taking a break from board games for that day! But I hope to get Thunderstone Advance–it’s one I’ve been dying to try!

I’m looking for a place to put this. I know this isn’t a game played, but I discovered it when I was adding to my games played. I couldn’t decide where to post this quesion, but here goes: the icons on my profile page are now incorrect. An example is that Ascension now shows up as Flashpoint: Fire Rescue, and there appear to be a few others. I’m not sure what the issue is, but I wanted to point this out.

I was at GenCon so I did lots of demos. Spartacus was a great board game. Have to get it.

The Star Wars game I’m in came to a pausing point this Saturday. We’ll be levelling our characters up twice (bringing us to level 8), then completely switching gears for a while, moving to an Old Republic game with new characters and a new GM.

I also got in a couple of games of Race for the Galaxy between Friday and Saturday. The first introduced the goals from the first expansion to my sister, and the second was a solitaire game using the cardboard robot.

On Sunday I was able to play a game of Settlers of Catan with my family. It had been months and months since anybody but I had played it (my father and sister in particular), so it was a lot of fun bringing it back to the table.

Coloretto, Carcassonne, and No Thanks. I’m trying to get my mother-in-law to play some different games instead of Quiddler and Scrabble. I found a really old game called Probe. It’s like Hangman but with more people and a scoring element as well.
