Overall I truly enjoyed playing all these games. My game of the marathon would be Russian Railroads with Blueprints coming in second. I only got one play of Blueprints in but I really liked it. I gave it some thought and i'm still on the fence about the shields in that game and how important the secrets/memory aspects of that game really are...
Glass Road and Bruxelles 1893 were both kind of a let down, I guess that Glass Road needs to be played a few more times to see if that will have any staying power, but Russian Railroads will always get my vote. (for now)
I want to run another marathon in the summer time, maybe even as early as spring break. We will see, the college kids are my main source of gamers atm, everyone else decided to grow up, get jobs, start families, buy houses & cars, get girlfriends... what the hell is happening in this world?
I would like to thank my wife Renee for doing a lot of the background work and keeping all of us fed and refreshed.
I would also like to thank everyone for taking time out of their holidays to stop by and play a game or two.
