Do you want to be captain?

boardgamegeek was a LOT of fun. I missed the first 2 days since I was at Foundation Conference.
Played a bunch of games... one of my fav experience was wondering around at 1 am looking for games, and stumbling into Artemis. I had no idea what it was. People were in a darkened room looking at a projection. There were 5 computer stations and one big armchair in front of the projection. Someone looked at me and said: "Do you want to be Captain?"

I had no idea what was going on, but I said, "Yes!
Him: "Have you seen Star Trek?"
Me: "Yes!"
Him: "You'll be fine!"

So I sat on the armahair, while 5 people fiddled away on computers behind me. And apparently I was the Captain of Starship Artemis.

It was so freaking fun. There were 5 people clamoring at my ear: "Captain! Incoming enemy vessals!" "Captain! Space station 4 needs our help!" "Captain, we are running low on fuel!"
And I had to decide on a course of action, and once decided, people just immediately obeyed. It was a blast because I had no idea what was going on in the stations, and later on, when I came back to play the helm station, it was actually rather difficult to navigate the ship, and almost flew us into a black hole when I was avoiding mines. Each station was a computer game in itself.

Definitely the highlight of BGGCon.

These were the boardgames I played:
