  General News UPDATE! Memorial Day Games & D-Day results 2015

Memorial Day Games Festival 2015:
We had a decent turnout for the weekend. I guess it could have been better had we advertised it. Lenny and Rocco were in town for a wedding and we got a few games in before they returned home.
Games we had on the table:
North Wind, Onward to Venus, Steam, Elysium, Deus, Roll Through the Ages, Brew Crafters, Village, Dark Seas, Catan: Ancient Egypt and Dice Brewing.
  We had regular cookout food that everyone has for the weekend. Good times.

OPERATION NEPTUNE - June 6, 2015 - 71st Anniversary of the D-Day Landings at Normandy. We had 11 people for the event, Chris champed and played on 2 maps. The Allies won in a very close game.
Food was very good.

FOR THE SUMMER - OPEN GAMING ALL SUMMER LONG.

  General News It's a FINAL! The 2014-2015 17 Days of Xmas Board Game Marathon is now complete

Well, we didn't break any records, but I was still sad when it came to an end. Here are the stats:

2014-2015 17 Days of Xmas Board Game Marathon Stats:


DAYS PLAYING GAMES: 17  (0)

TOTAL GAMES PLAYED: 62  (-15)

TOTAL DIFFERENT GAMES PLAYED: 38  (-5)

TOTAL UNIQUE PLAYERS: 25  (-4)

(last years difference in parenthesis) 

 

Other fun stats:

3 TIMES Sheena beat Dallas in a game.

0 TIMES Ford dropped dice all over the game room (yes, Ford managed to play in ONE game)

2 TIMES Karlene complained about the drinks not being cold

0 TIMES Karlene brought ICE for R2D2

0 Cars died at the house this year.

3 TRIES to get Star Wars Imperial Assault to the table during the event.

2 TIMES Renee made FRYBREAD

1 TIMES someone almost lost their native identity… you know who you are.

 

Most Valuable Player of this Board Game Marathon

 

My choice for MVP this year goes to: SHEENA J. - Sheena was there almost every day and never complained about playing anything. Sharon (Sheena) always brought the sugar too, proof positive that all women are evil. Shealee (Sheena) is a very competent gamer and never gives up even when the odds are against her.  

 

Other Notes:

 

Good food and good times through the entire 17 days. Thanks to everyone who participated.

I would also like to thank my wife Renee for making sure we had refreshments available throughout the duration of this event. 

 

 

 

UP COMING EVENTS:

 

MASSIVE LAN

Friday Jan. 16-18 2015

I probably will not attend this event, but I wanted to give a plug to the guys outta Olean getting stuff done.

 

RUNNING GAGG


when: Friday JANUARY 30- Sunday FEBRUARY 1, 2015

where: Geneseo NY on the campus of SUNY Geneseo

other notes: we will be there all weekend.

 

LENNYCoN 2015 – no website – because it is just us playing games in the lobby of the hotel, somewhere in Charlotte NC.

when: Friday February 13 - Sunday February 15, 2015

where: Charlotte NC – you’re going to have to ask my travel agent Renee for details on hotel

other notes: we will NOT have any extra room for this trip, so if you would like to attend, your are going to have to drive or caravan with us on the way down.

Have any questions? txt me.
