Thursday night board gaming in Kansas City area.


When we meet, we have a signup sheet for the raffle of “THE GAME CAFÉ $1.00 BOARD GAMING CLUB “held at the end of each season it goes like this:

It will cost you $1.00 to play in the “THE GAME CAFÉ $1.00 BOARD GAMING CLUB “each Thursday night you are there to play in the club, one entry for the $1.00. There is a signup sheet for keeping track of your entries into the raffle drawing, and the end of the season. You get one entry point for just showing up and playing board games with other club members. You get a ¼ point entry for each opponent you beat when you win a game, times by the number of hours it took to play the game, rounded up to the nearest hour you played, and game named. When all those dollars add up to $50.00+, the season ends, and we have the drawing for the store credit of $50.00+. We also award the Wil Whea9en Award for the most winning points this season of “THE GAME CAFÉ $1.00 BOARD GAMING CLUB “. Other players that do not want to pay the $1.00, you can play games for free in the other game room, but not with club members.

On table one

We started a four-player game of “ANNO 1800” that was won by Robert.

We then went on to play a three-player game of “DUNE Imperium” won by Mike.  Wait what! Mike won a game after 3 months. HE IS BACK.

They played a four-player game of “Star Wars Outer Rim” won by Aaron.

They went on to play a four-player game of “Wingspan” won by Mike (taking over for William) by one points with two players tying for 2nd behind him.

Now for the 2nd week of Season 50 running for the Wil Wheaton Award, Aaron holds on to first with 11.75 points, Mike jumps into 2nd with 3.75 points and Robert falls back to 3rd with 3 points.  Wait, what?  Mike is on the winners list!

What kind of tournaments would you like to see played, etc. This paragraph will stay in weekly until I get a lot more responses, from the players here, please.
