We have a tradition in the group of choosing a game on or near your birthday. Sometimes this gets fudged a bit, well tonight Travis finally called his birthday game (actual birthday - early June)

We also welcome a flock (not sure of the correct collective noun) of Maggie's friends, bringing the attendance count to 14.

We also also welcome back Steve "Mr. Mandi" on hist first game night after the wedding. Mandi called telling me they would be a little late, and to put them in the same game (we seriously considered a heavy bidding game [Mandi hates bidding])

We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Travis initially was going to choose Wealth of Nations, but since Mike wasn't going to show up he chose this. Both Mike and Rick have bitter feelings towards this game, but I was willing to give it a shot (especially for a birthday pick). Will and Mark also joined in for their first play.

Mark was first player on the first round, which is not ideal. Will and I had some good turns where we were able to chain station building and tile laying actions.

There wasn't much change of directorship until near the end of the game. Most of us bought enough shares that taking over would be difficult, and it took a while until 4 companies had their shares exhausted.

Don't think I'd ever choose this game, but would probably play if asked again.

I have the 5 player expansion, so they obviously played with that. They added the "New Society" cards, but forgot to remove the original cards that are replaced. This made this a longer game than usual. Fisrt play for Amber.

Maggie and her friends started a game of Nintendo Monopoly. I'll refrain from negative comments but I will mention that they did play with "Free Parking" (Lily's first play with that option)

They did not finish the game. Here is the cash totals when they quit:
Sofie $1955
Skyler $1745
Maggie $1629
Clare $1593
Lily $1504
