This week I want to share a few pictures that I took of our Fall CamasCon Board Gaming Retreat.
First of all, I love the weather in the fall. The bright crisp mornings and the autumn leaves, the creeping mist that makes the woods look so mysterious and the pattering sound of rain on the metal of the lodge roof.
Now on to the board game retreat. We had a good showing of gamers for the fall CamasCon and I managed to take a few pictures of games in progress. Enjoy.
Strategy gamers pitting their wits and wills against one another…nicely of course.
Yep, Sweet Boy#3 is blowing on that board game! But this game is called “Rampage” and you are supposed to do that. The object is to blow over buildings and meeples with puffs of air and throws of the dice, because the players get to be rampaging Godzilla style monsters. A nice change of pace if your young gamer is having a hard time not bending the cards or throwing game pieces. This game is a license to destroy, which always goes over well in our household.
Yes indeed, Scruffy will have to haul most of those games back to their hallowed space on the shelf in our dinning room. But he is happy to do so if you will come and play some of them. And he will be doing it all over again come springtime. So until then, practice up, and we’ll see you at the Spring CamasCon in 2015!
