The first few chatted a bit,then Alan offered us some Kool-Aid.
I thought there'd be robes.

121 - ALAN The Grandmaster
110 - Jim S Adequate Acolyte
101 - Scott Worthy Warden
86 - Andy Ineffective Initiate

Actually, I kind of enjoyed this game. A little Carcassonne-y, a bit Domaine/Palenque, with scoring feeling familiar from many similar sources.

Keyflower's debut, so we'll need some insight from the sailors above.

Stephen K, Mark, & Jim S hunkered down for a little play-testing.
So "little", it took them all night!

Pandemic hits DIME status!

Oddly, I just happen to be listening to the Pandemic episode of TableTop (Wil Wheaton's YouTube Game Play & Review show) as I write this re-cap. Weird timing, no?
I like Morgan Webb calling herself "the Healer" or "Cleric" (she's the Medic). lol.

The guys used the On The Brink exp - Virulent Strain scenario.

Didn't manage to save us, however (Blue Deck ran out)
Brian, as the Dispatcher
C.J., as the Medic
George, as the Epidemiologist (Scientist)
Robbie, as the Generalist
Steve H, as the Field Op

I still love this game. Haven't experienced the ToB exp, but I hear it makes the game even harder than it already is. This result doesn't help eradicate that theory.

Alan next suggests we break one of my rules (as C.J. was quick to point out) and put a game that (sort of) supports gambling.

56 - ALAN (green mogul) he DeNiro'd us. With a bat.
52 - C.J. (blue mogul) might've won if he'd connected hotel to casino!
44 - Scott (yellow mogul) ended quicker than I thought it would...
28 - Eric (red mogul)

Cool game. A little building, some auctioning, a little racig tension.

Alan and I wanted to kill 30 minutes waiting for other tables to wrap up.
We battled close, if from slightly diff directions, but came to an absolute tie in the end. He acceoted the result, didn't want to play my Tie-Breaker game... >

30 - ALAN
30 - SCOTT

The New Freedom Five discovered Baron Blade's latest scheme and took him on where he was holed up in the underwater Ruins of Atlantis! Fortunately, Justice was served and Blade's plans of world domination were thwarted again.

With 30-45 minutes to kill before the others would finish, I produced an old favorite of mine that has NEVER seen the tabletop at NWIBGA, strangely! I've always enjoyed this little SIM-type zoo building game. It's very cute and light, but gets brutal & cutthroat quickly.

29 - SCOTT* The Elephant Achievement
29 - Alan The Ocelot Experiment
26 - Robbie The Monkey-Wallaby-Zebra Variation

* via Tie-Breaker (Chomp!)

And, of course, the night ended with an epic.
This week, we get onto a new map (well, I played once before, but everyone else were E&W virgins). Very compact map, made even a mere 4-Player game very in-your-face, made even more so by T.J. placing literally right-next-to-me on his 1st build... ("He tasks me. He tasks me, and I will have him.") ((Note: see final standings to see how that went for him...))

67 - ALAN greentrain
61 - Scott yellowtrain
51 - Steve H redtrain
25 - T.J. blacktrain

I was with Alan 80% of game, but I ran out of deliveries and didn't set myself up for enough longer ones at End Game. Spent too many turns building Major Lines, should've been Urbanizing, maybe, since I had the money. Not many gray cities on E&W, it seemed.
(Also had a number of MY goods stolen late in the game! ahem)

This was a "quickie" for the Late Nite crowd, only 1:45, done around midnight!

No one played this last Monday, but I added it because:

1) I like it
2) There were more copies of this brought last Monday than of any other game. They were scattered all over the room, boxes opened up and the game (and its upcoming expansion)discussed repeatedly.
