Some splendid gaming before many of the crew went up to the Metroplex. I even for the first time had some San Ant. afterhours gaming at the Taco Cabana down the road before my 4:30 am arrival back to the Atx.

As always :

-- things I played first
-- things I saw being played
--If I missed anything feel free to scream/holler/edit/get huffy and run off ( I am starting to experience this at least once a session. Ahem.) /attempt to force me to play Quarriors ( where *I* will be the one to run off screaming into the San Antonio Darkness.

We started with one of the SS triology-- thanks Tim for suggesting. A really cool and interesting game if not the most staggeringly intuitive rules in the world. But once one establishes the flow and figures out a path-pattern, AND remembers ( which took ALL of us multiple reminders to ever approach !!) that the 1s do not get you a bonus -- then this moves really well and I will be excited to play again.

We were all shut out by Andy-- who got to the top of the pyramidding as it were much faster than the rest of us.

A-- 3 Monads WIN

K T R ZERO

All I want for Xmas is a Monad.

YAY -- SS trilogy #2 -- A game I long sold in my ridiculous youth of getting rid of games as a teenager-- that I had not played in 36 years. Yes, 36 years. Yes, I am old.

I had a decent run going until people starting stealing my stuff. ( And Ben wasn't even there) And then I screwed up at the end thinking that for the minimum 3 needed to make a corporation the having to have at least one letter in common was an optional BONUS-- not a REQUIREMENT, oops.

We had a huge crew that instead of splitting, we decided to play this which is one of my most drastically love-hate games.

Love in that I think it's quite a brilliant little design for so many people. Hate in that as I have said in forums on this dealio before -- I HATE that so many people go ON and ON and ON and ON and ON about how effing EASY this game is to teach. I still rather vehemently posit that no, it ISN'T. The resource buy with no physical manifestation is IMHO horrifically counterintuitive -- I have had ( not this time, everyone was quire pleasant to play with ) horrible experiences where people REFUSE to wait until card decision has been made by EVERYONE before passing -- rendering disasters of someone with three sets of cards in front of them -- and God Bless people-- trying to get people on first play to understand how DIFFERENT each set of cards scores ( especially of course the Greens) can be horrifically headache inducing!

( Love playing this with all 7 people knowing how to play -- then everything moves TERRIBLY quickly!!)

All in all the cheering here has to go to indeed the newbies on this game Al and G who grasped all of this quite quickly despite the issue for EVERY new person of having to ask a million questions about the cards ( Someone just needs to publish a player aid for this with ALL the card breakdowns for new people-- if there is one already on here I have not noticed, apologies. ) -- and they ended up kicking many of our asses in a hideously close game !!

One of said people with a kicked ass, was of course, me. I went the war route and was rather ahead early -- then later red cards I couldn't afford-- then one person's 2nd wonder was the addition 2 armies-- and then of course I went down in flames.

A truncated game due to closing time of this AWESOME game that I love more every time I play it was the last thing for me in the store's session. Marty taught excellently and J and R learned quite quickly this wonderful game that I think while being a brilliant design, can take a bit to grasp to see how all the different things to acquire work together. Everyone did a fine job and I could have taken the win ( again truncated to just the first scoring round) if Ron had not taken the points on the board and left me to take the cards for 2nd place on our gurus or senseis or whatever the hell they are denoted as ( LOL) -- but that wouldn't have made much sense with the game ending early-- hence everyone finishes very close together and as usual, Kel is last.

At last I got this silly/scary little dice fest to the table. Despite some ambiguities in the rules ( I later learned, yes the 667 card is just to BLOCK everyone from winning until it changes) I liked this little bizarrely themed dice game. And WOO HOO-- it was the ONLY thing I won all evening when I got a third 555 when the current beast card was indeed triple 5 !!

K-- win 555
R -- had one number
E-- no numbers
