"A morsel of genuine history is a thing so rare as to be always valuable." ~ Thomas Jefferson

President's Day celebrated with some appropriate back-stabbing, debating, and back-room dealing, simulating early American politics! (doesn't sound like a very good game by that description, does it...?) Actually, tho, I think we played it this time (2nd play for 3 of us) more in the spirit it was intended. (That happens when you add eSteve to the table...) Very cutthroat, aggressive, much faster playing.

And, sadly, I add another game to my lengthy Like-But-Suck-At list.

19 - GREG (Mr. Pinckney, Purple)
17 - Brian (Mr. Hamilton, Gray)
16 - Jeremiah (Mr. Paterson, Blue)
14 - Steve H (Mr. eMadison, White)
8 - Scott (Mr. Sherman, Pink)

My table of Presidential celebrants moved upstairs to break in my new T2R map, honoring Pres. Theodore Roosevelt's penchant for big game safari hunting in Africa.

The Africa map adds a new rule & deck, Terrain Cards. Terrain cards offer rail-builders an opportunity to double their points when claiming a route. W/o a few more plays, I'm not sure if I like that mechanism or not. Jury's out.

163 - Brian (Blue Heron Rails)
129 - Scott (Yellow Giraffe Rails)
103 - Greg (Black Mamba Rails)
92 - Steve H (Red Rhino Rails)
41 - Rick (Green Parrot Rails)

As our final tribute to U.S. President's Day, we played this new Print-n-Play game, inspired by our recent obsession with Werewolf/Resistance/Traitor games and the large number of Late Night After Party attendees lately. Assassinating the President, fitting end to the holiday and right up our group's alley!

We gathered in the lobby for a pre-game briefing, 14 players strong.
Then we moved down to the soccer field to spread out. One group of 7 at each end of the field (out if earshot, our "2 Rooms"), the Leaders meeting at midfield each round to exchange hostages.

I was 2-for-2, first with the Red Team. Even tho we guessed wrong on Nick being the Blue Pres and keeping him and Ryan (who we were pretty sure was our Bomber) at our end, it was priceless to see Nick's face when he saw the far group send Wheeler Bob (their Real Pres) our way in final exchange. Haha. Boom!

Game 2, I was Blue, found many allies quickly, but we struggled to i.d. the Bomber. We thought it was TJ and had control of him at end, so sent him away (knowing Nick, at our end already, was Pres). We got lucky and they kept their Bomber (Steve H) at their end. Boom!

This game is a great twist on the whole Resistance/Hidden Roles/etc genre. The large group size made it tough but very fun. Great problem-solving, deduction, deceit, planning game. I'll have to try this with my soccer team!

We finished by playing more Werewolf into the wee hours.
I took alot of notes, but my brain hurts and it all got jumbled as we played FOUR rounds...

The extra roles we added for games 2-4 were cool, adding great twists to the game and spice to the discussions.

One highlight: I'm Irish, I started Game 2 as the Town Drunk, then night 3 awoke as the Leprechan. Had a hard time not laughing myself silly (much to the enjoyment of the Dead Guys watching from outside the circle, i'm told). Then the dang werewolves tried to off me 3 nights in a row, the jerks. But I deflected them (sorry Cursed Rick and Bloody Mary Sterling...) They're always after me Lucky Charms!
