Lake Geneva Board Gaming

Friday gave me the opportunity to play some board games in Lake Geneva with some friends.

While we waited for some others, I taught Scott Felton the rules of Ninja Burger (even though we only had two players).

Ernie Gygax joined us soon, as did Andrew Carlson, for a game of Kingsburg.

Brent Cunningham was also in attendance and schooled the lot of us.

Then Brent hosted us in a game of Seven Sisters.

It was Ernie who was victor here.

But I managed to come in a decently close second place.
