This month's library meetup was competing with the nearby Fair Oaks Chicken Festival (I kid you not):

http://fairoakspark.org/events/chicken-festival/

and a sudden drenching downpour (and a wandering drunk). But nothing keeps the faithful from getting their games on. There were a LOT of high player count games and new faces, so definitely fill in what I missed as I'm just going to note these as played. Oh, and DavidM posted in welcome to a new member:

Quote:
Newcomers are supposed to bring donuts

And sure enough, there were 2 boxes of fluffy, glazed doughy, goodness on hand.
DavidM, next time suggest that n00bs bring tri-tip sandwiches, ok?

Anyways,you can find more gaming in the Sacramento area by going to:

Knowing that I was attending meetup, DavidM, had a special treat for me-Shogun, which I've owned/traded/sold several times and missed opportunities to play many times. As a total area majority whore, I was finally glad to sit at the Emperor's table for control of Japan. I took the low road, deploying pieces to the board and avoiding early conflicts other than colonizing empty provinces. Gary and Trace beat each other up. I also had insanely good defense. DavidM benefited from a late card that protected his 2 coin temples that I was about to gobble up. Still, I managed the win.

We needed a quick 3p tweener, so another of my fave area majority games hit the table. I went for brown and then lemon. I used brown to lock down those two 5 spaces and then a little bit of black. David went Violet and had a ton of cubes. Trace and I used early passes to strand DavidM's cubes. Trace had good patrons, but no museum presence. David had a mix of patrons/musueums, but my brace of 5 spots plus 3 each of lemon and brown carried the day.

With Phil arriving, we had 4 for Kreta, yet another area majority game. Did I die and go to heaven? Apparently so, since I was able to deploy fortresses and Abbots in such away to almost always be in on the scoring. I like the 'look ahead' scoring mechanic and kastellan play (although I had one 'forced scoring' that nearly hosed me). Still with the lead, I was able to do a Kastellen-->Kastellen to end the game in my favor.

That is 3 area majority games, and 3 wins. Worth the happy dance, but I'd get my comeuppance the rest of the night...

For us, this is a tweener while waiting for Olympos to finish up so we could play Railways. I got the skullduggery/arcana lord. I also got a quest that gave 4 vp/building purchased. Too bad I didn't have the building lord. Well, I bought, and Phil and DavidM kept me in coins and cubes so w/o doing much in the way of quests, I kept up. I did one 20 pt. quest and a total of 4 end game quests. It was good enough to tie Phil, but David M. ruled waterdeep.

DavidM-153
DavidO/Phil-133

Another game started up shortly thereafter.

My first play of the combined game. I tried to go midwest and luck into the Louisville bounty, but Scott just plowed through w/ a 2 linker out of Chi-town (I needed a good cube draw on a new industry and didn't get it). DavidM got the early Raleigh bounty and someone else got Jacksonville. Open bid went for 15. I got outfoxed by Scott and Jean at every turn. The move west was little better. I positioned myself for the Bismarck and Fort Worth bounties, but it was too little, too late. Ditto making my tycoon w/ 2 western major lines (Grand Junction to OKC and Promontory to Omaha). I had nothing, I tell you, nothing. Jean blew everyone off the map. Other than me being dead (and I mean dead as not going over 100 dead) last, it all got fuzzy. Still, it was an epic game, and I'm always up for more.

We finished w/ this. I started off w/ the standard settler/quarry, but Scott shipped rings around us. I KNEW I should have taken a warehouse. Ah well, I got two big buildings but couldn't man them (not that it would have mattered).

Scott-70
Phil-46
Jean-41
Bruce-31
DavidO-27 (if I had manned my buildings it would have only netted 9 more)
