The featured game of the night was Star Wars – X-Wing Miniatures with several rounds of TIE fighters versus X-Wings in which we took the game that is designed for two people and proved that six to eight people can play it just as well. Ships whizzed and soar across the table, dice rolled, and fun was had . . . despite several players (myself included) getting eliminated pretty early on.

Around the third floor of Molly Malone’s rounds of DominionMagic the Gathering, Firefly – The Game, and others were being played at the other tables. There were at least half a dozen new faces at Geek Club this week, and each month the meetup grows as word gets out about this evening of fun and dorkiness.

At 10PM gaming ceased and we all turned to face the wall upon which the house digital projector screened the debut episode of Steampunk’d, the new “reality” show from GSN (Game Show Network) based on Steampunk makers and crafters. Amongst the Geek Club we actually knew a few of the contestants and one of the show’s judges, so we were eager to see how the show treated them . . . more about that here.
