6156 Roads and Boats, GM: Zachary Weenig, 4 players, No XP/Complex, Friday 3p-7p. One of the "Grail Games" for many board game players. Hard to find, and fun to play.

Someone has stolen the Necronomicon from the library at Miskatonic Univeristy, and a Farm in the hills is undergoing a horrifying Metamorphosis. Meanwhile, unspeakable abominations stir in Penguin-riddled Tombs beneath the ice. Are you Inevitably Doomed to a lifetime of Nightmares in the Sanitarium, or are you, in fact, a Secret Cultist, worshipping the Minions of Darkness? Like the other games in the Fluxx family, in Cthulhu Fluxx players will modify the rules of the game by playing cards, changing numerous aspects of game play: how many cards to draw or play, how many cards you can hold in hand or keep on the table in front of you, and of course how to win the game. Players collect Keeper cards to satisfy the victory requirements but watch out for Cthulhu and other fiendish Creepers that will prevent you from winning even if you otherwise have the winning combination!

7031 Snowdonia, GM: Denny Lau, 5 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 8p-10p. The peaks of Snowdonia rise before you, encased in mist, their summits barely visible. The highest is Snowdon (Wyddfa) herself at 1,085 metres. The year is 1894, and the Snowdon Mountain Tramroad and Hotels Company Limited has been formed to build a branch line from Llanberis to the summit. You can scarcely believe it's possible! In Snowdonia players represent work gangs providing labour for the construction of the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Unlike other train games you will have to excavate your way up a mountain side, as well as make and lay the track, construct viaducts and stations. All this in competition with the weather of the Welsh mountains (and the game itself)! You may be assisted by a train (though that's not always best) and you'll be able to collect essential materials from the Stock Yard. You will obtain special work contracts that give you bonuses. Can you contribute more than the other players to the magnificence of the Snowdon Mountain Railway? Adults Only (18+) Ballroom Table 422. $2.00

9p

6098 Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, GM: Tim Hamlin, 6 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 9p-12a. Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is a semi-cooperative game for 3-6 players ages 10 and up that can be played in 2-3 hours. Players choose from pilots, political leaders, military leaders, or engineers to crew Galactica. They are also dealt a loyalty card at the start of the game to determine if they are a human or Cylon along with an assortment of skill cards based on their characters abilities. Players then can move and take actions either on Galactica, on Colonial 1, or in a Viper. They need to collect skill cards, fend off Cylon ships, and keep Galactica and the fleet jumping. Each turn also brings a Crisis Card, various tasks that players must overcome. Players need to play matching skill cards to fend off the problems; skill cards that don't match hinder the players success. Fate could be working against the crew, or there could be a traitorous Cylon! As players get closer and closer towards reaching their Earth, another round of loyalty cards are passed out and more Cylons may turn up. If players can keep their up their food stores, fuel levels, ship morale, and population, and they can keep Galactica in one piece long enough to make it to Earth, the Humans win the game. Beware! If the Cylon players reveal themselves at the right moment and bring down Galactica, the Humans have lost. Adults Only (18+) Ballroom Table 307. $4.00

At night, however, they only do two things: drink and spew. This game revolves around one week for a group of students. Go to class, learn things, and get your stipend. Then turn around and piss your money away as you booze and carouse all through the night. Put away as much as possible before you spew and ruin your night.

The house, buuuurp, the house has been infested by alien brain parasites, Morty. They get inside your mind and implant false memories to reproduce. We have to stop them, Morty. We have to stop them before they take over the whole, buuuurp, planet. Just be careful, Morty, there is a good chance that a few of these zany characters might actually be human. I mean, if a few have to die to save the planet, Morty, I can live with that, but at a certain point.... At a certain point, Morty, you're just a murderer, and that means you lose, Morty.
