|Bear throws down a card while Katie looks bemused. I was holding the "guard bug" (the green card on the table) but I only caught Bear cheating once... once out of his FOUR times he confessed to.|
After the camera was put away, I ended up playing "Ticket to Ride", a railroad building game based on the map of North America in the early 20th Century. Each player gets "tickets" and attempts to complete the route outlined. For example, you might have to build your route from Chicago to New Orleans or Los Angeles to Sante Fe. Each completed route earns you points, some more than others. The biggie seems to be Montreal to Vancouver although the New York-San Francisco run might be bigger, if such a ticket exists! At another table, some folks broke out the Star Fleet "Heroclix" type game. I think I'd like to try that one sometime.
We've had a lot of snow here in Southwestern Ontario and more is coming today. I'm not sure what we're playing this week, but if time and duty (and weather) allow, I hope to be part of it.
If you're in the vicinity of London, Ontario, most any Saturday, stop by the Crouch Branch Library on Hamilton Road between 10am and 4pm (more or less) and see what the games group is up to that week! With the exception of some holiday weekends, someone is usually there. We meet in the large meeting room unless the library needs it for an activity, then there's a smaller room we meet in.
