Another night with good attendance. Mark and Nate made it again. And we had an unusual appearance by Kevin. And he brought a friend.

Just about every game tonight had at least one player who was playing a game for the first time.

Old or new, you are welcome to our events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months (September game day is the 7th). The full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Mark bought this game a while ago, and gave it to Mike to learn.
Nate also bought the game so was definitely interested in playing. After some hemming and hawing (and waiting for Kevin) I took the 4th spot.

Due to my bonus tile I had a nice engine (pay a bishop, get two bishops, a wheel and 2 coins). Mark had a similar engine.

Mike had one wheel (allows you to move for free) the entire game, but just barely came in second. Just as I was poised to enter two cities (a major way to get VP) other players took the last spot. With the last double turn I was able to get 6 VP (3 for the spot, and 3 for majority in the city) - this also denied Mike 3 VP. Sorry Mike.

Let it be known we played the green side (the brown side is the same except for color)

First play for everyone but Mike (played with Louise)

Nate 51
Mike 50
Brian 43
Mark 34

2001 version. Travis suggested this, figuring if Kevin showed up there would be room for him. But Kevin brought Jerry so there wasn't enough room.

First play for Amber

Travis 52
Amber 50
Amy 48 (wins most dinos tiebreaker)
Will 48

Kevin and Jerry played this. No idea what deck types they used. I assume it was not the 1st play for either.

Travis, Amy, Nate and Mark had to leave. We had about an hour left. It was either 7 Wonders again or Transamerica. We decided to reach Jerry another game.

Kevin 11 (went out 3/4 rounds)
Will 6 (went out on the last round)
Brian 3 (2 or 3 away each round)
Jerry 0 (more away most rounds)
Amber 0 (ditto)
