It was the week after Gen Con, and no one was gamed out. We still had a respectable turnout despite most people being downtown for most of last week. Predictably, we played a lot of new Gen Con releases.

About the Game on! Game Night: We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays (plus the occasional 5th Tuesday) of the month at Avon United Methodist Church from 6:30-9:30. The next game night will be on September 3rd.

I really do not know why, but this game was played twice during the night. The first time David beat Greg, and at the end of the night a four player game was played. The score was not recorded so I am not sure who won it.

This is one of my Gen Con acquisitions, and I was really looking forward to properly playing it.

We played a full six player game using the recommended "first game" set up. David and Mike started fighting almost immediately, and did so for most of the game. Greg got off to an early lead coming around the first turn. This led to him taking a lot of hits, and he crashed going into the clouds before the second turn.

David Ross ended up in a great position setting up for the second checkpoint. He got through the checkpoint first and had clear air. The rest of us got really bottle necked up around the checkpoint, and he rode the winds to win the race.

This new game came out of Gen Con with a lot of good buzz and good word of mouth. Brian and Ben got in several games of it.

Brian 1 win
Ben 2 win

Two people began with this set collection game, but they did not record their scores.

It had been a long time since this game was played at a game night. It looks like they had a decently close game.

I know a couple of people played this game with just two on the Indiana map that was passed out at the AEG game night. They did not record their scores.

John had picked up this game at Gen Con, and we played a big seven player game. I started off as captain, and very quickly passed off the black curse to David. Various pirate code cards kept stopping him so he could never dump it.

The scores need a big asterisk next to them, because we probably played a card incorrectly taking John's money. So he may have had 25ish instead of four.

This co-op game was played by Brian, Kathy, Ben, and Phil. The forces of good triumphed over the horde, and Kathy was the master slayer.

With only a few minutes left, we broke out this card throwing game. I ran out of cards fast due to John having a lot of steals, and Greg had the most left over. He scored several points in those last turns and caught up.

Brian really wanted to play this game again because he was on the fence with the most recent kickstarter campaign, so we ran through a quick two player game. I thought I started off strong with processing boats, but he ended up with three Tuna licenses and that proved extremely powerful.
