Cabin Con 2007

Cabin Con 2007 has come to a close and I’m exhausted. I rented a cabin atLake Hope State Park and I collected a few close friends for a weekend of great gaming.

It’s amazing the number of games you don’t get to play during an entire weekendof gaming. Once you account for sleeping, meal preparation, cleanup, and socializing, you’releft with a lot less time than you think you have. We had about thirty five games on hand and out of all of them I think the following games are the only ones that saw the table:

Caylus (two plays)
Jericho (two plays)
Great Wall of China (two plays)
Carolus Magnus
Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition

I did get to play several of my newer games (Taluva & Trias), and one of my favorite games (Carolus Magnus), and I was very glad to have gotten in my first twogames of Caylus. Even with only two plays, I can see why it’s ranked so highly.

We started playing Twilight at 11:30pm Friday night (pretty stupid idea) and wedidn’t end until almost 9am. One guy fell asleep sitting up towards the end of the game. I’m not terribly fond of the game but in this situation it was a good time to devote a big blockof time to it.

I had a great time and would do it again in a minute. This is the second ‘retreat’ my group has done but I’m still trying to figure out how best to get people tocommit to attending. We had a large group all set to attend and then at the lastminute many cancelled. We still had a quorum and had a great time but thosethat couldn’t attend were truly missed.
