Regulars Travis and Amy were not going to be here tonight (work issues and prepping for Gaming Hoopla http://www.gaminghoopla.com/index.php? ) and neither were new regulars Will and Nancy Lyn. So for quite a while there was only Mike and I signed up. Mike even brought some 2 player games. (there was a night where it was only Mike and I)

Later Mandi and Steve signed up so I started looking at 4 player games and then Greg (and Gwen and Gabe) signed up plus Amber and Maggie showed up (plus Laura and Louise) so we ended up with quite the crowd.

Crowded or empty, you are welcome to our events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months (coming up October 4th). Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Gabe watched this game last week, and wanted to play. A very nice score considering his first play and age.

Buildings + Forests + Animals + Bonus Tiles + Bonuses = total
Gwen 28 + 30 + 10 + 8 + 1 = 77
Greg 32 + 6 + 10 + 11 + 3 = 62
Gabe 20 + 20 + 10 + 3 + 1 = 54

When it was 4 players I was really hoping for this since I am leading a game of this at Hoopla and had only played once. Luckily we had enough other people that this would fit.

I'm not sure we advanced the time marker every time, so we may have had more actions than we were supposed to. One rule we played wrong - when you discard a card it goes FACE UP on top of one of the draw piles (which could influence the card you discard - if your neighbor has a bonus for a certain good)

First play for Mandi + Steve - second play for Mike and I.

Brian 154 (end game - 1 set of 3 buildings [10 points] and 15 card points)
Mandi 130
Mike 128
Steve 126

The score sheet says Balderdash, but I am pretty sure they were playing BB. I didn't approve this game - I'm just recording the scores

Amber 1st
Laura Ann 2nd (no tiebreaker)
Maggie 2nd

Louise called Mike and needed a ride. So special appearance by Louise at game night. Mike did help her play near the end (mostly to speed up the game)

There were several (all?) people with the same number of completed tickets

Louise 111
Laura 104
Maggie 98
Amber 89
