Tonight we welcome back Classic Nancy after whirlwind (OK, closer to a gentle breeze) tour of Maine. We also welcome back Daniel who last was at a game night when were at Timber Square wow Daniel also brought his sister Kathryn.

We welcome Josh and Maria, who seem likely to become regulars. Josh will be teaching Math Ed at UW-La Crosse, and Maria is a librarian at the La Crosse library.

We also welcome Erik, and bid a fond farewell to Alex V - who is probably not going to show up for quite a while. We hope to see you again, Alex.

No matter how long it has been when you have been at an event (if ever), or how long before you can come again, you are welcome to our events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. See http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Erik could not stay long, so was looking for a shorter game. Ticket to Ride seemed like a good choice. The game was new to Erik, and possibly Kathryn. (Not sure about Alex)

In the end it came down to longest route to determine the winner. Nancy had am impressive 32 train route, but Kathryn had a more impressive 33. 10 more points for the win.

Kathryn 117
Nancy 112
Alex V 109
Erik 54 (some uncompleted routes hurt)

Josh brought this game, and it was agreeable to us. Daniel had played before but it had been a while. Maria was also a bit fuzzy.

Unfortunately I cannot claim teaching, as Josh did most of it.

Josh 207 (all 8 symbols, plus some other multipliers)
Daniel 202
Maria 192
Brian 183

We were not quite done with Stone Age when Ticket to Ride ended. Erik had to leave, but the other players were looking for a filler . Nancy suggested this as it is a common game played in the group.

First play for Kathryn.

Alex 28
Kathryn 21
Nancy 16

With 7 and about an hour to go, this seemed like the perfect choice (we really didn't have two appropriate games).

First play for Daniel, Kathryn, and Maria.

Daniel 52
Brian 51
Alex 50
Kathryn 47
Maria 45 (wins money tiebreaker)
Nancy 45
Josh 31 (resource starvation hurt)
