A small, but enthusiastic group of not quite a dozen gamers converged on the Raley's community room for some summer gaming. Good to see faces old, new, and returning.

Played with newcomer Jeff and also John and Josh.

Josh-Robot/Ninjas-16
Davido-Aliens/Dinosaurs-12
Jeff-Wizards/Pirates-5
John-Plants/Leperchauns-4

Got to break out the expansion to this fun shuffle-builder. The manipulations of the Aliens + raw power of the Dinos served me well, but Josh's sneaky ninjas poached enough points to carry the day.

John wanted Cosmic, and like Gumby, my arm can always be twisted Jeff was new, and Josh had played once before, so we kept it simple w/ 1 power and none of the funky decks.

Josh-Disease-5
John-Filch-4
Davido-Parasite-3
Jeff-Xenophile-3

Everything was going just fine. I played an emotion control on Josh and John, and then Quash to try to hose them post-deal, but Josh had a card zap. Josh and John got to 4, and my big plan was to generally NOT ask for allies on my encounters and then force ally on THEIR encounters but a force field from Jeff kibbosed one such effort. My final stroke of genius was to set up Mobius Tubes to get my ships back, plague whomever I was going to encounter, then use my Super Parasite to go all in. But the Disease contaminated his way to the win. Still, the usual, fun, fun, rollickin' good time.

We played the Germany board. Josh was the 3 time winner on the day.
Josh-18 + $
Davido-18
John-16
Jeff-13

I sandbagged my way to getting the 20 (3C-->5C) and the 31 (3C-->6C) and stalled on step two. Roared from 7 to 12 to put on the pressure, picking up the 40 (2O-->6C) and inched my way to the win. It came down to John NOT getting a 5 cap plant, and taking a 36 3C-->7C, so I had to hang back as he would have Capacity over me. That gave Josh a chance, even though I snagged the 50 6C fusion plant for 52 Electro. Josh and I both built 18 and powered, but Josh had plenty in the bank for a close win.

6 games played with John, Ian, Jeff, Davido, Matt, and Chris. Jeff was new, so we kept it simple for the first 3 games and then adding the lady of the lake. Good won 5 games, but Merlin got axed on two of 'em. I made the critical 'tell' of jotting notes after one of the Lady of the Lake plays which Chris spotted and outed me as Merlin. oopsie. Have to learn to take notes AFTER the game. I was on the winning side for the first 2 good victories and 1 evil victory (as Mordred who kept his deep cover) and good on the last two assassinated victories (including the Merlin 'tell'). Fun times.

Finished up with this one. Interesting and suprisingly interactive from Herr Good Doktor K. I couldn't quite snag the last 2 five chits and Mike made that 5/5 a push to deny me the points.

Jason-32
Matt-29
Jeff-25
Davido-22
Mike-19
