GAME, GAME, GAME, GAME, LOVELY GAME! LOVELY GAME (To the tune of Monty Python's Spam song.....)

Yes, it was a day for gaming. Even though it was a holiday weekend, we had a great turnout and got to play loads of games!!!!!

In attendance:

Curt B
Michael H
Chris C
Ron
Ben F
TJ
Dave M
Bruce M
Beth M
Victor W
Margaret W
Matt D
Kathy D
Clint H
Josh H
Caleb H
Josh Ho
Mike R
Christopher D
Pete di
Matt S
Keith M
David H
Jacque H
Abigail H

Yes, we had 4 different husband/wife couples attend - that is way cool!

There were no new folks in attendance and there did not appear to be any benefits from having attempted to participate in International Tabletop Gaming Day (or whatever it was). There sign-up was hosed and they never responded nor sent out any information in relation to the sign-up. I doubt that I will mess with it next year; that is, assuming there is a next year......I have commented my opinions in a couple of threads here on the geek about it all. Imagine, me with an opinion AND commenting on it! laugh

This was the new Kick Starter version from Cheap Ass Games. The rules are slightly different from the original. It comes in a box and the components are sturdy. What a way to start the day!

Beth M 4,400 francs
Dave M 4,700 francs
Michael H 5,100 francs
Margaret W 5,100 francs
Victor w 3,000 francs
Bruce M 6,200 francs

It must be noted that each player starts the game with 5,000 francs. Many thanks to Beth, Dave, and Victor for contributing to the rest of us!

Low score wins. None of these are low scores. Curt wanted in on this game so bad that he nearly bailed out on the game he was in!

Sounds like a really fair fight to me. Who selected these teams?

Beth and TJ taught this one to Michael. Even though it has minimal "castle-ness" and no "burgandy-ness" to it, it appeared to be aptly named.

We taught this one to Dave. He then promptly thumped Kathy and me. Thankfully, Kathy was there to keep me out of last place.

This one made it to the table twice.

Looks like Matt S learned from Matt D's first play. Bruce did not.

I want to sit right down and write myself a letter. And make believe it came from you. I want to write words oh so sweet, they will knock me off my feet.

Chris enjoyed the turns when he could take no actions.

The last game of the evening was this UK horse steeple chase. First you bid on the horses. Then you bet blind on one horse. Then you learn what kind of track you have. Then you bet on up to 3 more horses. Then you run the race. The first 4 finishers make big bucks. There are three different kinds of card draws. Woe to the leader.

Curt B 290,000 pounds
Matt S 330,000 pounds
Michael H 130,000 pounds
Josh Ho 30,000 pounds

It should be noted that everyone started the game with 250,000 pounds.
