Enchanted Grounds. Moreover, on Monday night they were hosting Star Wars X-wing, so I made a point of heading over there after work.

Last week my oldest son was in town to visit, and I was glad to get to the table Star Wars: X-wing (designers Steven Kimball, James Kniffen, Corey Konieczka, Jason Little, Brady Sadler, and Adam Sadler; publisher Fantasy Flight Games) for the first time since I acquired it last December with a Christmas gift card. My whole family enjoys Star Wars, so I was optimistic that I could get them interested in playing. I’d supplemented the base game with Slave I and two Z-95 Headhunters, and my wife gave me a Y-wing for my birthday, so we had enough ships for all five of us.

Saturday Jarrett Melville organized an UnPub Mini event at The Game Vault in Fredericksburg, Virginia. This event was a nice informal gathering of game designers and playtesters at a friendly local game store that turned into a solid success.

Saturday 7 February was the first full day of UnPub 5, the unpublished game prototype playtesting convention that has grown dramatically in the last four years. I split a Tag Table with Tony Miller, and by mutual agreement, I took the table first on Saturday. I was glad to do so because I really wanted Lesley Louder to get a chance to play "East India Company" before she had to leave the convention early. When Lesley's husband Darrell, the convention director, heard that I was setting up a game of "EIC," he had Richard Launius (Arkham Horror, Elder Sign) join us. Rob Weaver made our fourth.

Exploding Kittens (designed and published by Matthew Inman, Elan Lee, and Shane Small). It has already broken crowdfunding records for board and card games and shows no sign of slowing.
