GNOIF #12 Recap — Head West Young GNOIF! (Territorial/Expansion/Western Theme)
Games That Got Played: Bang!, Cards Against Humanity, Citadels, Star Fluxx, Forbidden Island, Gardens of Alhambra, Lost Cities, Small World, Ticket To Ride Europe.
Games That Didn’t Get Played: Black Rock City, Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Fjords, Power Grid, the other Ticket to Rides.
Record attendance! It was a very full, and at times, very loud house. It’s a good thing that we weren’t playing golf or tennis or chess or something.
I’m guessing it was noisy at times due to the games that were played:
Loud games: Bang!, Cards Against Humanity, Star Fluxx
Medium volume games: Forbidden Island, Citadels
Relatively Quiet games: Gardens of Alhambra, Small World, Ticket to Ride Europe
Quiet Games: Lost Cities
So it was the loud games making it loud. And the Jello shots.
It’s really getting to the point now that people are able to get their games going without involvement from the hosts. That was the original intent, and it’s nice to see it happening. Also, more eyes on the rulebooks means that we’re gradually eliminating incorrect play.
Fun times! Expect a Recommended Games post on Small World soon.
