We had 15 people make it out tonight for the game night. While a couple of old favorites got played, we had a big bend towards the new hotness.

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 October 1st.

A five player game of this new co-op game kicked off the night. I guess things went south fairly quickly. Then Ben dehydrated and everyone lost the game.

A group of people continued the celebration of Vlaadtember by playing this game. Ships were built, then destroyed. When the dust settled, Matt emerged the best trucker of them all.

Mike really wanted to try this game out, and I was happy to teach it to him. We played a four player game. The viaduct was used by just about everyone to lower the cost of moving into cities where other people were present, so there was a lot of cities that were dual occupied. Jeff and Mike both managed to get into an 8 point city, but I managed to get into both of them and that made the difference.

Paul and Sophie showed up a little late, so they played several games of this new two player game. Sophie won the best 2 our of 3.

Later John and David played this game, with John getting the victory.

After suffering through the desert, that group switched over to trading beans. It looks like they had a fairly close game.

Jeff wanted to get in another play of this Gen Con purchase so he happily taught it. This is a worker placement/engine building game. Jeff built up an engine that took a couple of turns to set off, but each time he got it off he got 10 points. Early on, Dan got the technology that gave end game points for money, but he switched away from that towards the end to focus on producing points from spyrium. I ran the tightest margin on money, seemingly always having just enough. I did get a nice little engine going that allowed me to get five points a turn, and then for the last two turns I was able to use a technology to set it off twice each turn.
Mike took a completely different strategy, focusing on workers and money. Most of his points came from the board not from factories. He managed to use his wealth to buy some of the big last turn buildings as well.

Two games of this were actually being played for the first time. I think John was the only one who had played in game one, while Brian and Greg both had a game under their belts in the second game. Matt though emerged the overall Bruges winner for the night.
