Sid, Jake, Tom, and Jay are playing Tichu, a classic trick-taking game for partners. It's a game that we like a lot.
James McTeague took the pictures in this section.
Lou, Dianna, and Colin are playing Pandemic. The players play CDC specialists, who deal with outbreaks of virulent diseases and try to prevent world-wide pandemics. It's a cooperative game: the players need to work well together as a team in order to succeed.
Hank, Becca, and J are playing a game of Alhambra, or one of its variants. It's a land development game.
Jay is moderating a game of Werewolf. Villagers (Sam, Chris, Derek, John, Ryan, and Jake) have been deliberating on who the secret werewolf among them is. It appears that the time for making a decision has arrived.
Derek is moderating another game of Werewolf. Honestly, the villagers don't seem too worried that a werewolf is decimating their ranks. Lou, Sam, Chris, Mark, Jay, Jake, Dan, James, and Becca are the villagers.
Sid and Tom are playing Race for the Galaxy, a card game of strategic development. To succeed, a player needs to develop a series of interstellar worlds and facilities that work well together. A variety of successful strategies keep the game challenging.
Sam, Chris, Ryan, John, and Neil are playing Agricola, a land development game. Each plays a farming couple with a wooden shack. It's all uphill from there.
Chris, Derek, John, Ryan, and Jake are playing No Thanks!, a card game in which the point is to avoid taking cards with high scores.
