Due to popular request, I've created a Geeklist outlining mine (and other) experiences. We held a Google Hangout talking over our experiences in detail. We did miss some though.

The summaries here are very brief. We go into more detail (on most of these) in the Hangout.

Please share your experiences if you wish. Enjoy!

Awesome... and Meh. The system is great. But, it's fragile. The first case was rewarding. The second (which we didn't finish) was a let down.

First time playing with five. Worked quite well. I think this is a rarity that works great at all counts.

Played a few rounds of this with a friend. Nice chance to do some deck tweaking. This game will be severely overlooked and might possibly die out I think. But, there's a nice metagame here. I think it's up to four viable decks at this point, from a relatively small card pool, based on what I've been able to explore so far. There might be another tournament viable deck no one has found yet.

First time with this system. It was great. It was intense since we all tried to play it as true to ourselves as possible.

If shit goes down, I will most certainly grab the nearest blunt object and start swinging... and then run for the hills at the first sign of the supernatural.

Surprisingly fun. It has "attacking" which sounded terrible on surface, but worked pretty good. We played with four, but I think it will be best with two or three. If I hadn't already released Machi Koro, I most certainly would have in the face of this. Very "engine-y", but quick and satisfying.

Played twice. I guess it's better than Star Wars Risk? It has the potential for a more epic feel to it, but it's also longer. It's also as random as hell. I think people that own it have been telling me that it "destroys Star Wars Risk" because they don't want their copy to lower in value....

Moving on...

I saw lots of Star Wars Risk being played as well!

I'm going to eat crow and say this is a good game. I love ONUW and thought, "What the hell is this cash-in madness?!" We played it twice. I could definitely get into this. I'm going to pick it up at my FLGS. My group has it's nose turned up at it as well. Going to shove it in front of them

Played the first "scenario" of the first game of this. It's a Legacy game from Rob Daviau and Dirk Knemeyer. It's going to "chronicle" civilization over the course of five games. It frankly floored me. I can go into further detail (maybe), but it's pretty well fleshed out as it is.

This was presented to me as "racism the game". I thought it was hilarious and could be ridiculous in a CAH sort of way with a group of close friends. I would never ever bring it to game night. It has the potential to unlock just about every "ism" locked in your subconscious. It's basically "profiling" pictures of people ala Codenames.

There is literally no way you can play the game without being a jerk. I'm an odd duck. I love stuff like that. I could go on about Theater of Cruelty. No time.

This almost immediately replaces Codenames and Mysterium for me. It's like Mysterium mashed up with Concept... and The Resistance with a theme that makes sense. Dan King did a video for it and he was the one who taught it to me. I played it five times (only takes about 20-30 minutes). I loved it.

Played a round of this as well as the "Codenames LARP" which was great. Everyone gets a word and that's who they are. There are two spy masters who shout clues and you have a checklist to add people to either team. Of course, if you choose the assassin you are out. But, you just check your answers after all 15 clues are given. Most correct answers is the winner. It forces players to mingle a bit. Could see this as a great party game or game with kids.

Seven of us did an Escape Room one night. We went offsite for it.

It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

Just unreal. The place where we did it was extraordinarily professional. I highly recommend this if you have a well known spot around you.

Best experience of the show for me.

This is a hybrid computer game/board game. One player with a laptop is looking at a bomb with various contraptions and puzzles, and the other players have real physical manuals they've printed out. The player with the laptop describes what they are seeing and engage in back and forth dialogue with those who have the manuals. There are lots of difficulty levels and various ways to play. It's really fun. I was very impressed by how the whole package is put together.

Finally beat it on "hard mode" with all the new rules updates. It was awesome. I've really enjoyed this game. It's something I will break out once in a while. I've played it to death. And now that I've beat it "for real", I almost never want to play it again. I'll keep it since it's small and just break it out again on occasion.

One of a few games I played in line. I like this one. It's a Knizia I never played. We played with four. I feel like it would be better with less, but I'm not sure. Need to play it a few more times. I may pick it up somewhere to play with my lunch group. Probably next year, since I have enough new games to keep us busy for some time. I won. So, maybe that's why I am liking it. The other players seemed not so hot on it. Knizia isn't for everyone. I tend to favor his games.

It's basically Win Lose Banana, but can also work for 4 or 5 players. It works well when you are eating dinner or walking somewhere.

It's really freaking dumb, but if you let go and are preoccupied with something else it works fine.

Above and Below is crazy. It's a Euro mixed with Tales of Arabian Nights. It actually works great. I need to play it again for a final assessment. It was very surprising.

Played this with three. Really enjoy this one. We had one new player who came in "last". It came down to a tie breaker between myself and another. I made a complete blunder of a move in the last round. I probably would have still lost, but I couldn't work it back enough to convince myself that I didn't cost myself the game.

This is a really great Ameritrash game for me. It gets pretty crunchy in the last few rounds, but it's open-ended enough to keep me exploring, and the combat/deck-building splash sucks me in every time.

Played this a couple of times during dinner on Tuesday night. This one is moving to that "so-so" area for me. It's fine, but I would just rather play something else deduction wise.

I've played it well over 20 times, and it's just getting repetitive even with different groups. The "box as game" mechanic is cute.

Had a chance to play this over dinner as well. Always enjoyable. It's a little bit lighter than I would normally go for. But, this comes out a lot with the family and works great in a casual environment.

Place holder.

I seem to have knack for forgetting games that I played. I'm sure there is at least one more I played that I've forgotten about.

-edit----

Gutsy - Another one played in line. This was "OK". I think we all agreed that the Events should be removed from the deck once they triggered. That way they only trigger once. I like the Events. But, I don't want to see them throughout the game.

Besides that piece, it was a quick and lite game that worked fine in line. The Events just make it feel like a random Munchkin at the end game.

---------

Deep Sea Adventure - I forgot this one. Also played in line. I really enjoy this one as well. It reminds me of Incan Gold. It's similar because you are somewhat reliant on the other players' actions. Everyone shares the same air supply. It can get a bit samey with a lot of players. I think I like it best with three. I wish there was some way for someone to shoot the moon somehow.
