As October begins and fall sets in, I thought I would look back at some of games I got to play over the last six months.
|My friend Grant G. gave us Goa for Christmas, and Kathy and I really like this neo-classic Euro.|

One quick go-back on my earlier posts recounting my World Boardgaming Championships experience this year: The very first thing that Keith Ferguson and I did Thursday morning, on our way to the registration desk, was to bump into Josh Tempkin of Tall Tower Games. He spent a good part of the convention demonstrating several of his games:
- "WarTime," which I've written about before as a fascinating, innovative real-time wargame involving sand timers
- "Throne Dice," which surprisingly I still haven't taken the time to play
- "Commissioner," which I learned at UnPub 4 as "Lesser Evil"

The holiday season continues with more socializing around boardgames. On New Years Eve, our friend Sheila D. hosted Glenn W., Jeff W., Kathy and me for dinner and games. After a wonderful Mexican rice bowl dinner with shredded beef, we sat down to spend the last six hours of 2013 playing games.
