This weekend I had the opportunity to go to Buckeye Gamefest. It's a small to medium sized gaming convention held in Columbus, OH. It's my favorite convention of the year because the focus is on playing games and seeing people I usually only get a chance to see at these kinds of events.

This year the con was moved to the Crown Plaza North. It was a huge upgrade from the Ramada it's been held at in previous years. I stayed on site and basically played games from Thursday until Sunday only taking breaks to eat and sleep. Glorious!

A friend of mine and I drove down from Cleveland to Columbus, OH Thursday afternoon to attend the con. After we checked into the hotel, dropped offer our bags, we picked up our registration badges and wandered around saying hi to people. It's been a long time since I've had a chance to go to a big event and it was good to see people I only see once or twice a year. We kicked off the event with a game of Blue Prints. I learned it recently and taught it to my friend. It's quickly becoming my favorite short dice game.

I was meeting people for Eldrich Horror in the evening, but there was time to squeeze in a quick 2p game of Glory to Rome.

volunteered to teach me Eldrich Horror. My wife and I are huge fans of Arkham and own nearly all the expansions. I was intrigued at the idea of Eldrich Horror being a streamlined version of the game. Dan got together a group and there ended up being 5 of us. We lost horribly, barely completing the first mystery. Richard Luanius wandered past a couple of times. The second time, close to the end, he looked over and said "Hey, how many mysteries do you guys have done?" "...we just finished our first..." "[laugh] you guys are screwed!"

After the cool down from Eldrich Horror, Dan taught me Splendor. All my friends came back from Origins and told me a I had to play it. It was pretty good. I managed to snatch a win my first time out.

We closed out the night with a 3p game of Ora. Still one of my favorite Rosenburg's. It was a tight game with everyone less than 10 points away from each other. I was just tired enough at this point not to think too much about the game, so the whole thing went down quite smooth.

Friday, my first big scheduled event was Roads and Boats. I ran a 5p game for some people. We played an augmented version of the Disneyland map. Everyone had played before, so I didn't have to do a teach, which was a nice surprise. I was a little rusty and made some early mistakes, but otherwise it was a really solid game with some really hard water maneuvers.

We had an hour or so to kill before heading out to dinner Friday night, we ended up playing a 3p game of Maharaja. I've played it before a few years ago, but I didn't remember it at all. It was a clunky play through where I kept making obvious mistakes. The good news is that I didn't straight up play spoiler between the other, much more fluid players who both built all their palaces and were a few bucks off of one another.

pulled us into his event, a 15 player board game about markets and trading. He's run it several years in a row and this was the first time I've had a chance to play in it. It was an experience, that's for sure.

Afterwards, I was pulled into a game of Valley of the Kings. I'm always happy to learn new games. This was a new twist on the deck builder. It was alright. I'd play it again. I do tend to like deck builders where there's lots of different cards rather than there being a handful of the same type of cards.

I capped off Friday with a 5p game of Kemet that lasted well into the evening. We eventually drew at 9pts. It has a really interesting system for a dudes on a map game, but unfortunately the victory condition is a set amount of small points and that makes the game prone to "get the leader".

Saturday I was up bright and early to get in line for the consignment shop. For the last several years, CABS has run a games "garage sale" for con goers to sell their games. CABS also uses it as an opportunity to push out games that are worn out or not getting much play from their own library. I always go with an eye out for something weird. This year's find was a beat up copy of Upon a Salty Ocean and a really nice copy of Paperclip Railways.

R&B game #2 of the weekend. It was another 5p game I was running for a group of friends of mine. I don't remember the map name, it was a 5p map from the expansion book, but it was the most negotiation-heavy game I've ever played. I ended up in the center of the map, which meant making lots of deals with everyone else in the game. Unfortunately, that particular session was like herding cats. People (myself included) kept getting pulled out of the game for various reasons. We eventually called it without finishing on account of everyone having other events. I'd like to play that map again if every comes up. It was really cool.

promised to bring this one for me to play. While we were waiting for the math trade, we broke it out and started playing. It was awesome! I've already emailed the company to see if there are copies still available before Essen.

After the math trade we grabbed dinner, then came back and I taught my wife and some friends Eldrich Horror. Having played it twice now, I feel like I have a better grasp on it. Here's some thoughts:

-I like how integrated the story elements are. Particularly I like the GOO-specific clue deck. I also liked the way the different conditions and monster reckoning effects worked. I was impressed when the zombie turned into a zombie horde because we didn't do anything about it.
-I liked the double-sided cards. This is something I like a lot from Mansions of Madness. MoM first introduced the idea of the double-sided spells. I loved it then and I love it here. I very much like the idea of taking on debts without really knowing the costs.
-The game took nearly 4 hours and we lost (5 players). The first game I played in the weekend took nearly the same length. I was disappointed because I expected something more in the realm of 2.5-3h.
-The game seemed more adventure-y and less horror-y than Arkham. It might be because of the GOO we were playing with (which was focused on alien insects and a comet of death), but the storyline coupled with the expeditions all over the board really seemed much more like an Indian Jones movie. This isn't necessarily bad, it's just a different tone than I'd prefer.
-The game feels less rewarding than Arkham. You don't get anything from killing monsters and closing gates. You just get to keep playing.
-I liked the sign track and the interaction with the doom track and gate tokens. I found this to be the most original mechanic in the game and I like it quite a bit.

On the whole, I don't think I'll be picking EH horror up. It's too close to Arkham and doesn't offer significant advantages over AH. We also own Mansions of Madness, so we've got a lot of those mechanics covered there.

Sunday morning I had a little bit of time to kill before our first event, so I sat down to a 2p game of Carc. It's one of the best 2p games out there.

Saturday, while we were playing something else, my wife ended up playing Artemis. There were two bridges set up with rolling sign ups in one of the rooms off the main hall. She's in love with it now. She organized some friends and I to sign up as a block for a Sunday morning game.

It was awesome! For anyone reading this list that doesn't know what this is, it's a video game simulation of the bridge of a space ship. Think any episode of Star Trek you've seen. Each monitor is a different station (weapons, navigation, science, comms, and engineering). The 6th player is the captain, coordinating all of these stations together and directing the ship to do things out in space.

My wife served as our captain and the scenario was a boarder conflict that required us to defend our space stations and destroy enemy space stations. Highlights include blowing up a group of enemies by flying through the middle of the pack and dropping mines, nuking a pack of space whales, and leading a couple of giant, invulnerable space monsters to an enemy station and then booking away at warp speed. After 90 minutes we had destroyed all but one station and my wife started speculating on how to put together her own bridge set up.

After Artemis, most people took off, but a few of us ended up playing Glass Road. It's my second play through and a really great game by the designer of all my other favorite games. I'm behind in my Rosenburg collection. I still need to pick up Caverna. Plus he has two more coming out at Essen!

After Glass Road, I subjected my friends to a play through of TGZ. One of my absolute favorite Splotter games. Its a tough teach, but a very rewarding game space.

. Nathan has been working with the designer on the game. I was really excited to play it as I'm a huge fan of Town Center and I'm really looking forward to Clinic. Even more so because the 200 hand-made copies that exist are pretty much already sold (half went to preorders for shipping, the other have, preordered for essen). This was much more economically driven than Town Center. The goal is to expand your hospital in order to service more patients while paying your overhead. Each round, if you manage to make profit, you can convert it into victory points at a 3:1 ratio.

We were the last ones at the Con, playing on a table out in the hall. It was a really nice way to end the weekend. Great people and obscure games are exactly why I go to these conventions.
