BGN Puchong Aug – Oct 2011

BGN Session Report Aug, Sept & October 2011

The Bumper Issue!

Sorry for the months of no show here.. a combination of work, computer HDD crashing and general laziness (hides in corner)  contributed to the lack of updates on this thread. Since I can’t remember most of the stuff that took place already (yikes!), I’m going to do highlights instead. Now that everything’s almost back to normal, the following post should be familiar. 😀

5 OCTOBER 2011

Games played:
1. Snow Tails
2. Magical Athlete
3. Airlines Europe

October was a quite month for BGN, Guess it’s losing steam?

Highlights:
1. Snow tails by Lamont Brothers was really cool.
2. Our homemade slalom was awesome.
3. Magical Athlete has to be the #1 LOL race game.
4. Diversity won Airlines Europe – Ernest had 1 share of everything. That alone deserves victory.
5. Silvia’s first visit to BGN (hopefully not last?)

5 OCTOBER 2011

Games played:
1. Survive! Escape from Atlantis
2. Fresco + Expansions
3. Mines of Zavandor
4. Magical Athlete
5. Summoner Wars
6. 7 Wonders + Leaders Expansion

Deepavali = longer gaming time. :D

Highlights:
1. Amanda brought her younger brother.
2. He liked Survive! & Magical Athlete but MoZ was too boring for him? :P
3. The guys got to try Fresco.
4. John teaches Summoner Wars, it was 2 v 1 as Joel had to leave. DWolve emerged victorious despite having the odds stacked against him!
5. I got to play 7 Wonders: Leaders. It’s not game changing but does enough to freshen things up.
