Another stint on the Lifeboat tonight. Just over half the players lived. But overall, a more balanced outcome for everyone. The night was finished with a game of Pirate Fluxx. I think that version is becoming the house favorite. Thanks to all who showed up.

Next week Small World will be on the table. Come and check it out.

There are even rumors that we may have some Red Dragon Inn matches in preparation for the upcoming tournament.

Another great 40k tournament where we maxed out capacity on our tables, we're so glad to have attracted so many people from all over who have such a fervent passion about the hobby! Lots of new players and some first timers to any 40k tournament, and one of them took the cake with his T'au army featured somewhere amongst this mess of pictures. Next tournament should be July 6 but we'll make an event post about it when we make it official.

One last thing is that we're thinking of having the tournament start at 10:30-11:00 AM to allow for a lunch break and making the end of the round be dice down instead of allowing for even turns to round out. We'd have max 2 hour 30 minutes per round with a warning at the 2 hour mark that there are 30 minutes remaining. We hope that this will combat fatigue and allow players to essentially get more value out of the limited amount of time to play each game and almost guarantee we're getting out at 7:00 PM if we factor in 30 minutes for a lunch break after the first round.

Let us know what you think in the comments!

Sorry for the delayed post. Another great boardgame night on Thursday. We started the night with some Dixit. Some talented story tellers were present. We finished the night with a round of Bang! (classic edition). The Outlaws won.

Thanks to all who showed up. Come and join us next week.

Beautiful night for boardgames. We started with a few rounds of Insider. A good game to engage all players. Then we finished with some Love Letter: Batman. We went crazy and played with 5 people. A little less back and forth, but still okay. Thanks to everyone who showed up.

Next week we are looking to put Dixit on the table.

Busy night for boardgames tonight. We started with a couple rounds of Mascarade. Another secret role game, with a twist. Then we broke up, and had Ticket to Ride: Märklin on one table and Unearth on a second table.

Thanks to everyone who showed up, and to those who brought some new games.
