Tonight we welcome two new members - Jen and Lee. We had a third RSVP but work stuff happened and he couldn't make it. We also had some semi-new people: Rose, Anna, and Nick.

It just so happens that tonight was a work night in the church we use. So when Jen sat down at my table it took me a while to figure out she was a gamer and not one of the work crew blush

At most of meetings it is easy to find us - We meet weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.boardgames.meetup.com/495

Derek mentioned wanting to play this again. Pete jumped right in. I played my copy once a long time ago and was willing to try it again.
We were all shocked, shocked at the winner:

Nate 17
Derek 16
Brian 13 (wins tiebreaker)
Pete 13

Travis and Amy taught this to newcomer Lee. Despite his score I think he caught on. Amy was very happey with her score.

Amy 35
Travis 26

Pete had to leave so we had 10. We weren't sure if we could do two games. I was interested in playing Vikings in person (I've only played once or twice with cardboard version, though I have played 4 times online*) I though this wouldn't be TOO hard for a new person.

Nate's goldsmith strategy netted him 15 points at final scoring. He also too the time that would have completed my longest island (7 tiles IIRC). but a lack of fisherman hurt him. I maneuvered myself to get the 10 point most boatsman bonus.

Lee 42
