Well, the tournament turnout was pretty good, and lots of people came out to Great Flats to have some tasty beers and play some of the board games we brought out to demo.
First of all, I cant think of a more well suited game for a tournament at a brewery than Red Dragon Inn. For those of you that haven't played it, Tho basic "plot" of the game is that you're an adventurer who just got done with a day of fighting hordes of monsters and battling baddies, and now you're headed back to the tavern to enjoy some drinks with your adventuring buds. The object of the game is to be the last man standing as you and your friends drink, brawl, and gamble the night away.
The game has been around since 2007 and the guys over at SlugFest Games are still releasing new characters and expansions for it on a very regular basis. As a matter of fact, they just wrapped up their kickstarter for their 50th character, Evil Pooky!
Bottom line, it's a fun, quick, easy to learn game that anyone can get into and have fun with regardless of skill level. We'll certainly be breaking this game out again for future tournaments in the upcoming months. And speaking of the tournament, Congratulations to Christina Vincent, a new Red Dragon Inn player who won the day playing Eve the Illusionist and walked away with a new copy of Red Dragon Inn 4. The finals table was a close game in the end but she managed to pull out all the stops and secure the win. Whoever ends up playing her at the next tournament will have their work cut out for them for sure.
Now as I said earlier, The tournament may have been the highlight of the day, but just as many awesome people came out to have some drinks and play some of our other board games with friends.
Control. Super fast fun little game where you're trying to beat you opponent in a race to fuel your time machine to escape a rupture in time!

All in all, it was a great time. People had a lot of fun, myself included. I'll be talking to the great people at Great Flats to make sure we can keep up these game days in the future. So keep an eye on our calendar and make sure to join us for our next event!
