Picked this up at Grand Con, also. It was a hit there and seemed pretty popular with Our Gang, too. Powerful magnets shooting across the table, ala Crokinole. Science is fun!

Many games played. A few matches in between those listed, but few game sheets were turned in.

ROBBIE won 1st game.
DEMITRI & I shared the 2nd win.
STEPHEN won the last round of night.

(Pronounced "Chin")
One of my new acquisitions from GrandCon and one of my new favorite games.
It's a simple abstract with minimalist (but attractive) components. Plays quick (20-30 mins), very simple rules, but a wealth of decisions and depth. Plays equally well 3 or 4 (haven't tried 2P yet).
Seemed others liked it, too! Woot.

SYLAS (Purple) - WINNER #1
Wheeler Bob (Green)
Scott (Black)
---------------
JOSH M (Black) - WINNER #2
Jason Woz (White)
N8 Woz (Green)
Scott (Black)
---------------
SCOTT (Purple) - WINNER #3 (Finally! Only took 10 games...)
Mike McR (Green)
Sylas (Black)

Newcomer Trish saw John P walk in with Martian Rails and that was it. Game on. Apparently, she knew what she was doing, too.

Cute little game from Robbie's collection. Fairy Tale Yahtzee(?)
Roll dice to build your houses (straw, wood, stone). Roll 2 Bog Bad Wolves and you lose your turn, but not before blowing on the spinner to destroy someone's houses. Was kind of fun.

Nathan saw this in Mike's stash and asked if we wanted to teach him.
Didn't have to ask twice! LOVE this game.
AND then the Ungrateful Upstart Teen stole victory from my very grasp!

Finished the late night with this other new one I brought back from GrandCon. Group was hesitant, but once the bets were placed and Robbie cued up some William Tell Overture for us, the screaming & yelling began.
Everyone enjoyed it and some even admitted to being surprised that it was alot better than they thought it'd be.

$152,000 - MIKE McR
$137,000 - Scott
$118,000 - James L
$ 98,000 - Robbie
$ 58,000 - Sylas
