Our Weekend In Gaming: Boarding Games

More fun than you can shake a meeple at.

The Co-Opticrew has quite a few plans to engage in gaming of the "tabletop" variety this weekend, and I simply couldn't be happier.  There are few things in this world that can top a nice night spent with friends, drinks and snacks in hand, as you huddle around a kitchen table and find out the fate of your adventuring party/warring countries/what-have-you.  I'll be demanding nothing less than a full report of these escapades on my desk by Monday morning.

Naturally, video games of the co-op variety are also on the schedule.  We've got cult-ridden wilderness, vermin-ridden countrysides, and loot-ridden dungeons all lined up.  Check it out!

Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Fortnite still has its hooks in me. And Far Cry 5 is a ton of fun. So it's the two F's."

Jason Love (@JLove55) - "Perfecting my active ejecting and reloading in SYNTHETIK, and maybe some Vermintide 2."

Mike Katsufrakis (@Pheriannath) - Probably some Far Cry 5, and trying to survive a trip to Games Workshop with my wallet intact."

Marc Allie (@DjinniMan) - "Big board game convention all day tomorrow, that should be most of my gaming this weekend."

Locke Vincent (@LockeVincent) - "I'm feeling quite ambitious this weekend with a copy of 7th Continent coming from Kickstarter, as well as a session of Gloomhaven. So that's the tabletop covered.  Into the Breach, Prey, and Vermintide 2 is in the current rotation of delicious games to gobble down."

Tally Callahan - "Probably a little Smite on the PC, Anachrony on the table."

Sam Tyler (@thereelsamtyler) - "I have my nephew coming to visit so I have a chance to get the second controller out for some local co-op.  LEGO games, Sonic 2 and many other games I have mothballed in recent months."

Enoch Starnes (@enochstarnes) - "Leaving on a work trip soon, so maybe I'll get some of that fabled 'mobile gaming' in on the way."

Matthew Squaire (@mattaghetti) - "I lost my Co-Op partner for Divinity Original Sin, so I am playing that alone now and reading The Divine Comedy."

So, any board games or video games on your calendar this weekend?  Let us know in the comments.
