When I got to my new work, I was given a tour of the place. My desk, the drinking fountain, and not one, but TWO BATHROOMS. It was more than I could have ever dreamed of. Until I got to the break room. What a sorry sight. Yoga mats? A box of Trivial Pursuit cards? Puzzles? This place needed something. And that something rhymes with cord names. That's right. Lord James to the rescue! jkjkjkjk board games.

It started with a simple display at my desk and has evolved to 30 minutes of games every day. This list is record of the games we have played. Enjoy!

The game that started it all. We only played this once, but that was before the board game club was solidified. Games during lunchtime aren't great, but games during break time are wonderful.

This game is probably the one I can teach the fastest. I was even able to give some demos of it at my desk.

We have a lot of word nerds at my work, so this one was a huge hit. Big laughs, lots of fun.

My favorite hidden movement game and still the oldest Game of the Week featured. Look at all that plastic! I have to be careful cleaning up the games though. Either that or move the trash can.

Bright and colorful, we played that the pirates were running away from an earthquake and we would remove boards once all pirates were past it. Lots of shouting.

The first play was rough, but once we got into the right mindset, there was a lot of shoving; definitely in the spirit of the game.

At this point, the board game club was big enough that there needed to be more ceremony. I spent the afternoon crafting a trophy worthy of display at the winner's desk. See how many pieces you can identify!

Concept was great because even if people weren't around to play games specifically, they would still walk by an offer guesses when we were playing.

Tough sell for a lot of people. "It's called Welcome to the Dungeon! You fight monsters like goblins and dragons!" But once word got around that one player had won 4 games in a row, challengers started to step up.

Gravwell is somehow trickier to teach than most games I own. Something about the movement trips people up the first time they play. But once they got it, they were off to the races.

The first few games were played with fewer rounds for time reasons, but once we all learned the game, we could play a game with 6 players in 30 minutes or less.

I'm always surprised how quickly people pick up this game. I'm always worried that the text on the cards would be too much information, but this game can be taught and played in less than 30 minutes. Very happy with this game.

Dixit with coworkers was wonderful because nobody knew each other enough for the issue of "inside joke" clues to come up. Insider clues ruin an otherwise fantastic game.

Bringing a classic game to work is a nice way to break up the pattern of mostly new games we play. I love Under Cover because there's no text, most gameplay is with only a few chunky wooden pieces, and it is such a sneaky game.

Forgot how disappointing the player elimination in this is. Lots of us misjudged how long to stay in Tokyo, but we all got a kick out of goading others into attacking when they shouldn't. This was the first game that I have sold since playing it for work.

This was the game that got me into modern board games, so I was excited to share it with my coworkers. They agreed that it is a special game. Wish I had the updated version with new art though...

I always worry when nobody is talking during games, and Karuba has a higher percentage of silence than most. But I think we still had a good time and our scores really improved as the week went on.

The old trophy was not structurally sound, so one day it basically disintegrated. Luckily, I found a pretty sweet bowling trophy at a local thrift store. I shaved off the bowling ball and stuck a die on there. Much better.

This one is a hit or miss with people, but when it hits, it hits hard. My coworkers loved the chips and felt the pressure of the race.

This game made us very hungry, especially the new eel cards. Tons of cards in the tin (sigh...tins), but some of the card backs don't match unfortunately. Still wonderful.

OK, I can't speak for my coworkers, but this has been my favorite game we have played so far. Something about the variable player powers, poker style, and fantastic art really sticks with me.

The 45 minute play time on the box is a lie since I haven't had a play go over 30 minutes. We played with the Volcano promo tiles, but when the expansion comes out, I'll probably bring this one back.

This game runs into an issue with my coworkers where they turn into AP monsters. Lots of rethinking placement and choices. I should have cracked down on it more, but we still enjoyed the times we played.

Still trying to figure out if there is ever a good reason to pass a high numbered card to a neighbor. Regardless, this game is so quick we played two games each day. There's no rule for ties, so that's disappointing. Otherwise, wacky weird game in the best ways.
