Yep, you read that right.
Took me almost 2 weeks to get this geeklist out, but better late...than...you know.
Was a large group this week with 4 full tables going.
My brother in law Everett was visiting from San Antonio and gets the award for coming the farthest to play this week.

Now... On to the games....

As Ross would say.....MMMMMMMMOOOONnnnnnnkeyyyyyy!

Waiting for folks to arrive, we broke out this classic.
Great fun and I feel luck to have any score at all since I busted the first 3 rounds and had not an animal to my name.
Poor Everett ended up with only one point and told me afterwards that he felt lucky to get that.

Aristides: 32
Denise: 30
Dave K: 17 ( I won the tie breaker for being better looking...)
Kevin: 17

The "Love Letter" folks moved next into Guildhall which along with Terra Mystica is the new darling of the gaming group.
They picked up Todd along the way.

Mike: 20
Jack: 16
Todd: 15
Brian: 12

I'll leave it to others to talk about what happened during that game since I don't know.

After Cheeky Monkey our table went right to......RAAAAAAA
Felt pretty good to win this one since I have been going through a dry spell for winning.
Had to break out the fancy winning dance moves after....
Oooooo so smooth....
As a sidebar, when Ra came out again towards the end of the day, I won again (Man, that never happens) and with the exact same winning score (41)

Dave: 41
Kevin: 38
Everett: 33
Denise: 29 (this time, she won the tie breaker for being better looking)
Aristides: 29

Max from Stratamax games was kind enough to donate his latest game to the group. This beauty is just now being published by Rio Grande and it is a lot of fun. With rail lines and stocks, this game is light enough for the whole family, yet has some "think" and "mean" in it.
I really like Credit Mobilier.

Unfortunately, Max got beat at his own game.
Think he was being nice and let them win...Right Max?

Now the BIG games make their way to the tables.
One group went with Vinhos which I hear is just great.
Maybe someone from that group could fill us in on what happened.
Brian crushed it... (Sorry, couldn't resist)

The other big game was Terra Mystica.

I got an early release copy and been pushing everyone playing it as I am a big fan of the game.
In fact, it is my favorite game of the year (well, so far)

Now here is the embarrassing part of the story.
I've been teaching this to everyone and I missed a big, major rule.
After re-reading the rules, I'm glad to say it is the only rule I got wrong, but it is a game changer.

When you upgrade a building to next tier, I told everyone you move the old building off into your inventory.

WRONG!

I now know you return that building to your board which affects your income the next turn.
Stupid mistake that would cause a big shift in the game.
I know better now.

Dave D. (who spotted the mistake) ran away with the game.
Said, "No one will ever beat my high score in the future."
With the correct rule in place, I think he is right.

Jack W: 118
Dave K: 94

Time for a 2nd game of this.
As I outlined in the earlier entry.
I won this one too with the same score: 41
Time to break out the victory dance again (avert your eyes if you can't stand to see my smooth moves....)

Guildhall comes out again.
This time with the Job Fair expansion.
Interested to hear what folks thought about this.
I've added Job Fair to the library this week.
