No Nate or Mark tonight, but we did have 9 adults and 3 younger folks.
We welcome back Brian "Segundo" N.

Again we had at least one new player in all the games except perhaps one.

This Saturday is our monthly game day - theme is "Gaming Makes the World Go Round" - games with round aspects (Rondels, The gears in Tzolk'in, the price wheel in Vikings, etc.) or with maps of a world (so Alien Frontiers counts) will be featured. Do well and you can win a major prize!

You are welcome to attend that or any of our other events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months (usually with a theme). Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Travis suggested this game. Mike, Amy and I were interested, but gave up our spots to allow new folks to learn / try it.

In previous plays Mike was unable or unwilling to build a bomb. Not this time - he amassed some yellowcake and proceded to convert it.

He could have won on te turn before but some optimal spots were taken. He built all his bombs on one turn.

The turn before I contemplated retrieving my workers - I really should have, because then I would have had enough workers to build a bomb (possibly two). I wouldn't have won, but could have come in third, maybe second.

First play for Will and Brian N.

Mike 45
Brian N 35 (Segundo!)
Will 8
Amy 6

This is Brian N's new obsession on yucata.de. (though when it showed up he thought it was Nobelmen).

On the final round I thought I used my manipulators well, but could not get the rolls. Even with us letting him wait to use the queen, Brian N also did not have good rolls either.

First play for Mike and Will

Mike 8 5s
Amy 7 6s (wins turn order tiebreaker)
Brian 7 6s
Brian N 7 5s
Will 6 6s
