2 Days, 16+ Hours, 20 gamers, close to 40 different games – GAME SIX now brings us to the finale of this awesome Retreat. The most talked about game TROYES receiving the closing ceremony honor on Table #1 while two of the MASK Trilogy were on the next two tables – TIKAL & MEXICA. Table #4 saw re-emergence of GIANTS, another popular game from last year’s Retreat.
