Christi tagged out to put the baby to bed so the rest of us got a game of this in with the Leaders expansion.
There were quite a few new players so we (meaning me) let Theo run away with science cards where he scored a whopping 31 points and took the lead.
Neil wasn't far behind, having scored a good deal by completing his wonder, netting 20 points.
I forget the scoring after that, but I think I came in 4th or 5th. I wasn't planning on doing a geeklist so didn't make an effort to remember all (or any) of the details.
I will say I highly enjoy 7 Wonders and would like to get enough games in to really get a feel for it. I also see myself owning it sometime in the future. It's just the right mix of simplicity and strategy and I love drafting as a mechanic.
A nice fun game to finish the night with, I managed to take the win. Neil was pretty close behind with everyone else running the gamut of the score track.
I really like games like this; Apples to Apples, Crappy Birthday, Cards Against Humanity etc...and I think this would be my go to game to play when family and/or younger players are involved. Otherwise, Cards Against Humanity takes the cake. Jerks.
My favorite part of the night was when Lee's story was "I'm horrible at my job." The cards were laid out and one of them was the rabbit on the moon, in a space suit, that had taken his helmet off. Lee thought the picture was so funny and relevant to his story that he couldn't help but point it out while bursting into laughter. This of course tipped off everyone that this was not his card. He had chosen the scarecrow in the field of candy that had failed to scare off any crows. A good choice for the story.
Good games and thanks to all who came out. A special thanks to Neil and Tanya for bringing a mega salad split into component parts so everyone cold tailor it to their taste as well as giant dinner rolls and a cherry pie!
