Time for Abner Con 2011

banner 2

Very cool day today. Well, cool as in “woo hoo” not cool as in cold because all of a sudden summer decided to roar back and it’s 94 degrees outside.

Today is the day Todd drives from Indy with Clan Brakke for a weekend of boardgames and bad food. Being a long weekend he’s here ’til Monday so we’re going to jam a lot of game time into these three days — plus we get to play some NHL 12 head to head and I can murder him in his sleep with a chainsword.

This weekend we’ll try to get games of 7 Wonders and Road to Enlightenment and I know Todd will want to play Railroad Tycoon and BattleStar Galactica but it’s unclear if those will happen.

Olympos, Cyclades, Shogun, Fire & Axe, maybe some Imperial or …

I have too many damn boardgames.

  1. I think I would enjoy going to Abner Con. Not like that’s ever gonna happen, but I still think it would be quite cool.

    However, I’m pretty sure Bill would point a gun at my face and tell me I’m a Cylon. It’s happened before.

    P.S.: Todd, you might want to refrain from doing your W40k Ork impressions for the next few days.

  2. If there’s no Battlestar that’s okay, but dammit, it’s been too long since I got to smoke Mary at a game of Railroad Tycoon!

  3. You enjoying this awesome Ohio heat wave too? Went to mow my yard yesterday but the thermometer was reading 99º ….. so that plan didn’t go off too well.

  4. As mentioned above, eff the central Ohio heat wave!

    If you’re looking for another player for some board game action, hit me up! Hahah, I’m in Gahanna, 15 minutes outside Columbus and have yet to ever play the Battletstar Galactica Boardgame.

    I’m only half-joking. lol. Have a great weekend

  5. If you’re gonna start inviting all of your Ohio board-game enthusiast fans to the event, count me in. Just a bit over an hour drive for me to Columbus, but I’d totally be there. lol

  6. I have to hear how those games went. It’s been bad enough having to see you playing it online. Knowing you and todd are checking each other through the glass this weekend is killing me.
