Ace of Games Updates

Throughout the Ace of Games, I've learned many new games that I think others would enjoy should they get the chance. At our Saturday sessions at the Library, the new game Dominion has been popular. Dominion is a card game that many others have taken up recently with great reviews. See what other boardgamers say about Dominion at
Next, I'd like to promote this great little game called Hey! Thats My Fish! It was developed by someone who was dreaming about artificial intelligence. But don't let that confuse you, it really is about penguins collecting piles of fish.
Then theres Quarto! This little game is not in our collection at the library but gets a lot of play at the Langdon Street Cafe and at Rhapsody. It is a very classy abstract two-player game which challenges players to get a four-in-a-row using the multiple aspects of the wooden pieces. The catch: the opponent determines which piece you play. A great game for a quick play!

Our Magic tournament needs instructors who can teach newcomers to the game. Please contact me if you can play Magic. Participants recieve a free Starter Pack courtesy of Wizards of the Coast. Supply is limited. Also, we will be throwing in some Dungeons & Dragons into the mix for good measure. If you've always wanted to play D&D, this is a great place to start. Learn to build a character on the Dungeons & Dragons character builder found exclusively on the Wizards of the Coast DnD Insider subscription website.

We've had great turnouts for our Saturday games, now reaching about 20 gamers. Join us for the fun!
