Kevin showed some interest a few weeks back about giving this a try. Once he arrived I pulled it from the box and grabbed a table. The players were Kevin as the New York faction, Mike H. as the Merchants Guild, Phil as the Mutants Union and myself as the Appalachian Federation. We all sarted out pretty even. That didn't last for long though. I got hosed on my second draw and never really recovered. Mike and Kevin got some good synergy going early and continued it throughout the game. Phil came on strong at the end, but it wasn't enough to eclipse Kevin's winning score.

Scores:
Kevin - 39
Mike - 32
Phil - 28
Rich - 23

Anna led a 5 player game of this. Did not wander over to see which map was in play.

After 51st State we continued the card game theme and got some Glory to Rome in. It was my first time playing and I think I got it right as the game was ending. Although I had a "Wait I'm in third? How the hell did that happen?" moment when I thought I was in dead last. I'd play it again, but it's not in the "OMG must buy now!" category. Here is the scores for those interested.

Mike H. - 31
Kevin - 30
Rich - 18
Phil - 17
Michael - 15

With about an hour and a half left it was time to bring out one of my favorite tweeners. After a quick rules explanation to Kevin we were off. After all the silk was delivered and the elephants were put to bed I had a scant one rupee lead over Kevin for the win.

Scores:
Rich (Black) - 25
Kevin (Grey) - 24
Phil (Brown) - 8

We had just enough time to play some Carc. I threw in The Princess and the Dragon to see how it played. Carc becomes extremely cutthroat with this expansion out. It was pretty fun moving the dragon and eating meeples, but this expansion is not for those who get their feelings hurt easily. Final scoring as the doors closed showed this:

Kevin: 70
Phil: 56
Rich: 48
