Now one full day is complete. Played lots of games today, ate some things, and now I am just trying to make a quick recap of what happened today.
As I’m heading into the game room soon, not much time for writing. I think I will just make a note of a few things that struck me from Friday, and then next week, when I am home, I will talk a little bit more in-depth about some of the new games that I encountered this week.
I was also glad to get a chance to finally wear my custom OG jersey

I really tried hard to find a Japanese mini card game about zoology, but admittedly after Habitats, Ark Nova and Savannah Park – maybe that’s enough of animals for one day. Definitely more on this later, but I was glad to get a 3P game of Ark Nova finished in less than 2 hours, and I did get in my game with Alan Moon for the decade.
As usual, Tichu was in full force. At least two to three games at any times. I even got a game in myself – played with a deck in a cool custom 3D printed box and deck toppers. Of course, like usual, I lost. My partner made two Tichus, and well, I participated.
On the food frontier, my first taste of Frankie’s – the local donut shop that makes my favorite Cherry cake donut. Someone had graciously brought in three dozen to share, and I was happy to avail myself of the generosity of the mystery donor (though I’m guessing it’s Frank DiLorenzo – who has a known affinity for other Franks)
The other games that caught my eye today were Turing Machine from Scorpion Masque – an interesting deduction game with some pretty snazzy bits
The other game was nana, a wonderful memory game from Japan that continues to please.
OK, back to the game room. More tomorrow (hopefully)
