Cosmic Cows is best described as a game of Yahtzee with a tug-of-war element. In this 2 player game you each roll dice to try and get pairs/straights/large sums to try capture cows. The first one to get 3 Cows in their captured area wins the game!

The Opponents:

Curt Parr -v- Nick Korte

Winner..... CURT PARR!

Another new game for the crew. In this game you are tasked with packing a small truck with wooden pieces. These pieces are different sizes which makes the game interesting. This was a first time play for everyone!

The Participants:

Denise T.
Curt
Ross
Jen S.
Jim K.
Nick K.

And the Winner is... Ross with 72 points

This was a very quick and easy to teach game that everyone seemed to understand almost instantly.

Power Grid has become a staple at game night and with the large crew we had we decided to get a game going. This was a first time play for Mia and Ross.

Nick K.
Mia
Ross
Rae

It came down to the wire and some big bids, but the winner is... Ross!

Ross continues to dominate at learning new games and destroying the competition in his first play.

The frustration was building... Chelsea again wanted a rematch to try and finish the night strong.

All it took was a Super Beam to capture the last of the cows.
