One of the things I love above visiting Chicago before Gen Con is attending Thursday Game night. I was able to fit 4 games in tonight. 3 new and I won 3. We played A Study in Emerald, a 1820s cthlulu based game. Euphoria, a worker replacement game, Innovation, a card game with interesting stacking and scoring techniques, and lastly 7 wonders, a quick card game of building your empire. I won the last three. I had a good shot at winning the first one until my team members killed me off because they didn't know I was on their side which resulted in the 3 of us losing. Ops! All in all, lots of good fun! I will be able to go in 2 weeks and see some of these frienda at Gen Con as well!
