7 Show Up At Coop For May Games Night


This report is a bit delayed due to vacations and stuff.

It was nice to have a bigger group for once. My dream is that enough folks will join us that we can have 2 or 3 games going at once and enjoy a bit more variety in the things we play.

Specifically, while I enjoy the short games, I'd like to have one longer game that might go the full 3 hours playing at one table while some quicker games are being played at others.

At this gathering we started with Chronology and Carcasonne (see the April report for links) and then divided up. One table played Pirate versus Pirate - which I have yet to play, but looks like fun:

My table played Acuity.

Acuity is a pattern recognition game. I stink at it, but really like the game.

It is made up of about 60 tiles. Each tile is divided in 1/4s with one of 4 colored symbols in each quarter and there are often repeats - i.e. the same symbol occurring next to itself. 36 of these tiles are laid in a grid on the table between the players. The remaining tiles are placed in a stack, upside down and turned over one at a time. The players try to spot a place on the grid where the pattern is replicated. The first person to spot the pattern on the board gets the tile. The player with the most tiles when the stack runs out wins.
