TBGT Part 4: In Summary

Of the games I listed as wanting to play, I got all of the major ones to the table. The only one I didn’t get to learn was Drum Roll, which continues to be my convention white whale, and I also didn’t get to play Terra Mystica. I actually got offered a place in a TM game, but was headed for food at the time, and hunger came first. Since it’s a game I’ve played before and own, I’m not so sad to miss out on it.

My recaps of Wed/Thurs and the weekend detail what all I got played, but here’s a quick summary by the numbers along with some superlatives:
