I'm going to do a running geeklist about what I'm playing at WBC this year, starting with my Wednesday mostly tournament games.

Thursday, mostly open gaming except for Navegador.

Friday, some tournaments, some open gaming.

Saturday, more Navagador tournament play, open gaming.

Sunday, just snuck in a game before leaving to drive back.

4p. This is my team game, which I have no expectations of scoring points in. I just picked something I like. The people at the table were my favorite bunch so far at tournament games. Very nice guys. I pulled in second behind the leader by 10 points (120-110...and the other two were not that far behind). I just didn't sail enough early to push it into age 3 fast enough to catch up. Too much time for the factory guys. Still, tons of fun. I'm going to try again in the next heat.

2nd heat-barely won with a factory strategy. I got to play with Anni. It was nice to meet her.

3rd heat-won by a larger margin with a shipyard strategy with some colonies (10) and exploration (6).

Semifinal-got off to a slow start by not buying enough colonies early; went with a church/factory strategy. Vien had 17 colonies at the end, which was more than enough to win.

I had a really good time playing this game. I hardly did any practice games of it beforehand, which is probably why I got better over my heats.

4p game of Vegas Showdown. One guy ran away with it. It ended by someone filling up their board.

4p game, first play. Game lasting 7 rounds where you build "people" and "buildings". There is a dice selection phase in there. I found it fun if not terribly interesting.

This is one of my favorites and I hardly ever get to play it. I think this was maybe my fifth play ever. I finished second, somewhere over 4000k ish, winner at 4700. I stuck the third place player with 5 unsold economy cars, because I was producing 14 cars ahead of him. At least I sold 5 at full price earlier via salesemen, but I wasn't happy with my early play. I should have tried to go earlier in the turn order. All and all, I had very few losses, but that misplay early was very costly.

They were short a player, so I got to play in the semifinal. I was at the eventual winner's table who won handily.

Now Thursday. I did a lot more open gaming today as I was fried from yesterday. I saw a couple of friends there struggling through the rules (comment was "where were you an hour ago? laugh). I forgot that it drags with 4p. Great 2p game if you don't mind the fiddliness and rondels (I love rondel games).

4p. I struggled the first time with this, but I think I would like to play it again after I see what's going on. Surprisingly cutthroat.

5p game. I was Chaos Magicians in third. My friend, Nick, won with dwarves. Felix was second with his darklings. I got locked into a bad starting position. I think I might have done significantly better if I hadn't missed that I needed to build a bridge early in turn 4, but then I never got the thing built. Curses! laugh I built two towns the hard way.
