GNOIF # 15 recap — The Nina, The Pinta, and the GNOIF (Colonization/Exploration themes.)
Games That Got Played — Amerigo, Bang!, Citadels, Dominion, Forbidden Island, Pirates Cove, Fluxx (Pirate), SmallWorld, Ticket to Ride Card Game, Ticket to Ride Europe
Games That Didn’t Get Played — Carcassonne, Power Grid, Lost Cities
Another early crowd and we got into a lot of games again. At this point most of the crowd has played Bang!, Fluxx, and Dominion — those games can suck up quite a few players and still be breezy and relatively fast. The other games all had significant first-time learning curves and wound up being somewhat more time intensive as a result. Overall the evening saw a good balance of Light and Serious games.
And here I’d intended to get in my fix of Power Grid…
