There was a wide diversity in the back ground, as far as who has played what games, and also a wide diversity in interest in different types of games.
The games played last night were Kingsburg and also a five player version of Ticket to Ride.
Unfortunately, I got to Moxie late (more about the store in a moment), so wasn't able to play in the Kingsburg game, but it is one of the titles I have been wanting to play for some time now, so maybe I'll get to give it a go in the near future.

The place where we met and played was Moxie Paintball. The person running the shop (I believe he is the Owner) Was Jerry - a great fellow who helped to organize the get-together, and who is also interested in a lot of games, and the one who broke out the Ticket to Ride game. What a really friendly guy. He started the paintball business three years ago (and kudos to him for doing so well), and only recently decided to branch out into gaming. A really nice store, with a small, but already strong - and growing - gaming product collection. In fact, he had a copy of Small World Underground in stock, and I plan to stop by and pick it up tomorrow.

The group is planning to get together again next Tuesday night for more gaming. I believe there is talk of a classic Axis and Allies game, and also some lighter Euro game filler. Should be a good time. Lots of talk last night about Arkham Horror and other titles - perfecto!
