Had nice weekend filled with hanging out and playing games. Friday was the evil D&D campaign with complexated
and Karl. We encountered our good counterparts, who were...interesting... I think a little deus ex machina (deus ex DM?) kept us from killing them outright, but we know they'll be back.
Saturday was Philly Area gamers. It was my first time a the new location (McKenzies brewpub). The food was good and the beer decent, but we were pressured on time (had to be out before 5). I managed to get in a game of Alhambra Dice and regular Alhambra. The dice game is fun, and has a good bit of strategy for a dice game (not that I applied it very well). The regular Alhambra went pretty fast due to the number of people we had playing, and again I wasn't able to successfully put any real strategy into play. After the games were done, I went up to my brother-in-law's place to catch the end of his birthday party. Lots of Wii-playing going on (but mostly by the adults!).
Sunday was a different D&D game with lots of laughter. After that I went over to hairness
's place to watch the Superbowl. I didn't care who won, so I was just there to enjoy the game, the commercials and the company. All three delivered quite nicely :)
