This was the 13th Geekway to the West, and the first in the St. Charles Convention Center. We had out grown the previous year's venue, and we liked this new place very much.

Jyoti stayed in the adjoining hotel, and Celina drove in every morning from home. We didn't plan that many games this year, but the ones we did paid off immensely in happiness & discovery.

We look forward to this event ALL YEAR LONG. We have 139 emails about this in our inboxes. This was Jyoti's 5th Geekway & Celina's 6th. We have seen it grow from around 300 attendees to the current 2200.

We are IMMENSELY grateful to the board who plan this all year, it is an amazingly run convention. We are also grateful to Jay Little for starting this 13 years ago in his basement. You have brought much in the way of joy & delight to our lives.

This was my first game while Celina was working the library.

After getting my ticket and game, John and I picked up this game from the Play and Win and headed into the main room. The room was BIG and had a brilliant grid system that allowed me to just text people my coordinates if they wanted to find me. We didn't need to do that this time, though, because Adam L. found us and brought his friend, Steve S.

I liked this game a lot. You put your workers on boats and then sail the boats to different ports to take actions. You could really mess people up by sailing their boats for them and making them take actions they really didn't want. We thought this might be a game we needed to take home, but it would have to survive the 2-player test first.

After Imhotep, John and I worked the library. Since Geekway had only been open for 2 hours, we didn't expect the shift to be very busy so I grabbed this from the shelf. It was on my want-to-play list. Like Celina, I like pretty. This is pretty. We were wrong about busy. One of the computers was being flaky and we had enough of a steady flow that it took us a while to get through the rules. We did finally get through a game. I wanted to love this (did I mention it's pretty), but it didn't wow me. This is one of several things I love about Geekway is getting to try things out before buying.

Marge taught me my first crayon rail game my very first Geekway, and I look forward to gaming with her any time. She is an excellent teacher, and is so very patient. This year I was able to get a place in a game with her right after my Library shift, and it was an excellent way to start Geekway.

This year I sort of knew what I doing, and may have even made a decision without extensive help!

I liked the map very much, and the names of the commodities were fantastic.

for setting this up & teaching it!

I enjoyed this game VERY much. The many different things you could do, the beauty of the components, the perfectly wonderful people to play with, just perfect.

I had no idea what I was getting into, the game's name caught my attention years ago because it had a print-&-play expansion called the Daffodil Line. It is now on my wish list.

After we got out of the library, it was just John and I so we took this out of the Play and Win again thinking we'd give it the 2-player test. As we were setting up, I woman named Bonnie asked if she could join (yet another marvelous feature of Geekway is how open people are to asking and being asked about joining games.) We ended up giving it the 3-player test. It passed, still loving this. We'd have to wait to try the 2-player test.

It was back to just being John and I and neither of us was feeling aggressively social so we grabbed this from P&W. It was on both of our want-to-plays. Jay stopped by while we were playing and chatted and seemed genuinely in awe of how big Geekway had gotten. We liked this game. The components are nice and we could see this getting played in our house. It hit that sweet spot of being under an hour, variable and interesting, and playing well for 2-players. Our household can only support so many large games but this kind of thing is great for our weekday gaming.

I later purchased this and gave this to John as an early Father's day gift.

Still just John and I, we finally played this 2-player. Alas, it did not pass the 2-player test. It felt a little flat for us at 2-player. I would definitely play this with more players though.

This was a play-and-win, but neither of us won it.

This is a gorgeous game. Really. It is a push your luck game, with scoring that reminded us of Sushi Go!. I enjoyed it so much I played it twice during the convention.

12. Board Game: Potion Explosion [Average Rating:7.16 Overall Rank:433]
Board Game: Potion Explosion
Also a play-and-win game. We were trying to play as many of these as we could on Thursday & Friday before the weekend rush.

This is a much harder game than it looks. You are trying to pull one color out of another, so that you can get both (or even 3 or 4), to fill potion recipes. We had a delightful time playing it, as did, apparently, many, many other people at the convention. The bucket for it in the play-and-win area was stuffed full.

When we first lifted the frame for the marbles out of the box, it shifted a bit, and we had to fiddle with it. I was sure it was going to not hold together, but it did, and we didn't worry about it during the game at all. The insert holds it really well. The marbles to this game are ... not quite up to the quality of the rest of the components.

We scored a wonderful player in

As a matter of fact, we liked Michael so much, we convinced him to play this with us.

Who knew you could attack someone in Carcassonne? Esp. since I glossed over that part of the rules because I didn't think there would be any information in the explanation.

Michael did.

He won.

John, Michael and I were not quite ready to stop. We grabbed this out of P&W before they closed up for the night. While setting up, Brian wandered by looking for something to play and joined us. This is a fun and funny game. We enjoyed reading the cards and trying to figure out what real shows they might be referring to.

John and I were exhausted by then and crawled up to our hotel room.

Jyoti, John & The Heir spread this out & were learning the rules, I offered to play The Cave.

It had the kickstarter components, which were beautiful, but confusing.

I feel this is a slightly too fiddly a game for what it is. Maybe we were playing it wrong.

Jyoti won as the Knight.

The Heir wandered off so John, Becky and I played this after we heard all about the storm craziness. Liked this so much we played it again with Celina when she returned.

I won this in the P&W drawing. Yay! Actually, I ended up winning 3 prizes this year - a door prize, a volunteer prize and P&W. Triple-yay!

This was being demo'd and I got to play it. I ordered it from my local FLGS, and have since picked it up & played it again.

Oh, this hits ALL the things I like in a game.

It is Gorgeous. I am a complete sucker for pretty, I may as well own that.
Wooden Cubes.
Tile laying. (well, sort of)
Variable scoring.
Compact - well, the box is small. The game itself needs a big table, you spread out.
Easy to teach. I am still working on teaching games.

Having snagged Becky in the previous game, I was sent off to bring something back from the Play & Win library.

This looked fun. Small box, dice rolling, distribute resources.

It took us a while to figure out where we were going with this, but once we did I enjoyed it. I've never played La Granja, but now I think I'd like to try it.

Squee! Yes, Ticket to Ride has is an old game, but I love it. This was in the Play & Win, and Becky consented to play with me.

Jyoti joined us, but doesn't enjoy this as much, so I am grateful to her. This is true friendship.

I liked the double boat cards & the mix of boats & trains. None of us won it, sadness. Maybe it will come out on IOS, Ticket to Ride already has a large amount of real estate on my shelf.

John & I did not go out to dinner with the others since he had just returned from dropping our son at home. We grabbed this from P&W and headed to our room to eat some of the food we had brought.

I was very attracted to the airship component. I had seen people playing this and really wanted to play. This is not good at 2 but we could see this would be a lot of fun with a large group. We made it our mission to try and play with a larger group at some point.

When John & I returned to the main convention hall, we checked this out of P&W. It was big to learn on our own. Someone stopped by and had just played it so they talked us through a round. In the meantime, the others returned from dinner so we decided to cut it short and join them for Notre Dame.

I would very much like to play this game again particularly with an experienced player/teacher who could walk me through. It seemed pretty cool.

brought out a game he's working on where you swap lunches with other people. There's NO control.

I didn't enjoy not having any control, and couldn't figure out the flow. That bothered me.

However, I have great faith in Adam and look forward to seeing where he goes with this.

Ooooo! This game is lovely.

There's so much to do & not enough time!

I loved it.
