We held our regular monthly Game Day at the Arden Dimick Library Community Room. We had a smaller turnout, with about 16 people present, but still lots of games were played.

This venue is excellent for a game day. The room is well lighted and the tables are the perfect size. The chairs are comfortable and there is a mini-kitchen with a refrigerator and a microwave.

A newcomer, Marcus, arrived fairly early. Since he was not familiar with the games we usually play, I suggested we try this one, which is a fairly easy game to learn. We were joined by both my sons, Michael H. and Daniel E. , as well as Paul, who is fairly new to the group. Daniel, who is 7, decided not to finish the game.

1. Kevin 124
2. Paul 111
3. Michael H. 109
4. Marcus 89??

Bill offered to play this game with my younger son, Daniel E., after he decided to stop playing Ticket to Ride Europe. They played three games of this, with Daniel winning 2 and Bill winning 1.

Of the first game, Bill wrote, "Big victory for Daniel against the champ!" In the second game, "Daniel stays in the corners and edges and drives the champ out." In the final game, "The champ is not happy to be playing a 'Natural' again for the championship. The champ stomps 'the kid' in 10 moves."

The winner played an all-sell strategy; she didn't buy 1 painting! After 4 long rounds, it came down to a measly $4000-the sign of a good game.

1. Kelly $505,000
2. John W. $501,000
3. CiCi $482,000
4. Daniel B. $404,000
5. Mike A. $332,000

After finishing 10 Days in Europe, we then played this. In the first game, Michael was the Sheriff, Marcus was the Renegade, and Paul and I were Outlaws. In the second game, Paul was the Sherriff, Michael was the Renegade, and Marcus and I were Outlaws. Both times the Outlaws won as the Sheriff was the first one killed.

Bill suggested that we play this game, so Paul, Marcus, and I joined him in this. Paul, Marcus, and I were all playing this for the first time. I won the third hand, and won about 6 hands in a row. The game reminded me somewhat of Great Dalmuti.

1. Kevin 12
2. Bill 65
3. Paul 95
4. Marcus 115

Later, Bill, Paul, and Marcus played another game with Cecilia, with Cecilia cleaning everyone's clock.

1. Cecilia
2. Paul
3. Bill
4. Marcus

Mike A., Kelly, John W., and I played this game. The haunt, no. 40, started fairly early. This made it easy to figure out which room the person was buried in. Kelly was the Traitor. I was playing Professor Longfellow and managed to make 3 of the 4 Might roles that we needed to save the person who was buried alive, needed a 4+ on 3 d3.
