Tonight we welcome Diana who is new to the group but not new to board games. She has played Munchkin, Settlers, and Ticket to Ride (our standard into game).

We also welcome Aidan who is a friend of Mike's son Matt. Aidan has played quite a few games with Matt and probably Mike.

Regulars Travis and Amy skipped tonight due to the anticipated snowstorm (which arrived later than predicted - they could have made it.)

No matter how new you are, or in just about any weather, you are invited to our game events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. The schedule is available here: http://www.boardgames.meetup.com/495

We had six to start off so we brought out one of our standards - 7 wonders. We would probably not do this game with newbs, but we figured Diana and Aidan were experienced enough.

I had two science symbols, and had a card for the third. I didn't play it because I did not have access to glass. Turns out Aidan (on my left) had glass, it was just "hidden". I should have paid more attention, but that cost me 8 VP.

First play for everyone. I had read the rules, and the player aid on the cards helped, but I still had trouble transferring concepts (for example delivering goos has nothing to do with zeppelin movement). I usually do a better job - sorry if I was a bit gruff.

We did play one rule wrong. We played move -- action -- pick-up / deliver , where the correct sequence is move -- pick-up / deliver -- action (exception - adjust movement action hapenns before goods)

Aidan went for cash which turns out to be the winning strategy. My maxing out trains wasn't the greatest but the best move given my situation. Brian N misread the player aid and thought it was $10 / VP instead of $1 / VP.

$ + depot pts + zepplin pts + train points = total
Aidan 104 + 60 + 15 + 5 = 184
Diana 56 + 80 + 15 + 0 = 151
Brian N 32 + 80 + 15 + 0 = 127
Brian 17 + 60 + 0 + 30 = 107 (I claim teaching)

Derek, Courtney and Mike faced the walking dead in this co-op game.
They played twice.

Scenario 2 went fairly quickly with the protagonists dispatching zombies with ease.

Scenario 3 was a lot tougher, but in the end Courtney saves the day for another win.
