Madison Games Day (again)

Saturday was Madison Games Day 3 but our first time checking out the event.

Britt and I drove up to Madison a little early to check out the new location of Misty Mountain Games and, of course, ended up buying a new game: Small World (a game review will have to wait for another post or possibly my next newsletter). Afterward, we drove over the the Madison Games Day venue to grab some lunch before the event only to find that they weren’t officially open yet. Happily, the staff let us in so that we could hang out and punch Small World before most of the other gamers arrived.

Madison Games Day turned out to be a pretty hoppin’ event. I didn’t do a head-count but I would say their were upwards of 40 or more gamers hanging out and playing various RPGs and boardgames from Noon until 10pm. Britt and I ended up playing a couple games of Small World, a game of Race for the Galaxy, and a little 8-player mini-session of Diaspora in addition to hanging out and chatting with Kathleen and Kat, both of whom had a limited amount of time so they mostly just stopped by to hang out with us for bit.

It was nice way to spend a Saturday. Next time, I’ll have to lure more friends into coming and staying longer.

    Ah, Small World. It’s like Vinci, but even more awesome.

    Yeah, Small World is pretty awesome. I played a five-player tonight and it was just so good!

    Thanks for coming out to Madison Games Day 3! We all had a blast and I’m looking forward to the next.

    The attendance hit 70 with about 40 or so staying for the bulk of the day. It was a huge success for us and Madison Games Day 4 should be even better!
