Tonight we welcome Daniel who came from Columbia, South America to La Crosse just to play board games! OK, that isn't true. He has been in La Crosse to attend UWL in the past, and has recently been in Texas.

I also began my stint as Keymaster while Mandi was packing for her trip to Russia. I did have Nate as a backup.

People on all sides of the Equator, Prime Meridian, or Arctic Circle are welcome to our game events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months (including tomorrow, Feb 2). Our full schedule is available here: http://www.boardgames.meetup.com/495

I proposed this game before game night and Mike and Nate jumped in. I gave Daniel the choice and asked him what game experience he had. He doesn't have a lot of experience, but he has played Pandemic and Agricola. I figured he could handle Tzolk'in, and I was right.

I was one turn short of being able to build a monument (or probably better, a second building). Turns out I could have rotated the wheel past the end and done that - still wouldn't have won. Mike was constrained by corn - he could only place one worker per turn. Nate deliberately starved one worker because the action was worth more than one point. Daniel used his agriculture tech to get 12 corn many times.

Daniel 63.25 (wins most workers [1] on wheels tiebreaker)
Nate 63.25
Brian 48.5
Mike 26
