Cabin-Con V: The Clever Subtitles are All Gone

Another Cabin-Con has come and gone. This is the fifth year where I head up to northern Wisconsin with some friends, sit down in a tiny cabin and play as many boardgames as possible until Sunday morning. As a group we all look forward to this weekend, and with a full complement of five players we were set to have a great weekend of gaming.
