Tonight we welcome back Greg, who brought newcomer Gwen (and Gabe? - who mostly played video games). We also welcome Laura Ann to her first game night.

Tonight we played some older favorites, and one new hotness.

We play a variety of older and newer games. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Even though this is played regularly online, we still play it in person from time to time.

I do very well online, but the lack of port cards required me to do a double action build TWICE to overbuild my own ports. At the initial scoring Will and I were tied (with me winning the income tiebreaker), but when we added the 1 VP / 10 pounds I cam slightly ahead. Travis was the obvious winner when he ran out of cotton mills around round 5

Travis 159
Brian 129
Will 128
Amy 93

Initially the other players were set up to play Evo (the only non filler 5 player game that was available), but with Greg and Gwen arriving it opened up game choices.

Nancy, Amber, and Laura Ann decided to play chicken with Mt Vesuvius. Nancy taught this game to both other players. We did here the mandatory screaming, though perhaps not as vigorous as we prefer.

I'm not sure what the scoring on the sheet actually means.

Amber +4
Nancy Lyn -1
Laura -2

It has been a while since this has been played. Mandi (and Steve) taught this game to Greg + Gwen

Guessing Buildings + Forests + Animals + bonus tiles + board bonus = total

Steve 28 + 30 + 10 + 8 + 2 = 78
Mandi 28 + 30 + 11 + 8 + 0 = 77
Gwen 28 + 16 + 10 + 3 + 0 = 57
Greg 40 + 2 + 2 + 9 + 1 = 54
