Gamers came together, played games, ate snacks and then left. This is the tale.

Start Time: 6:40
End Time: 7:10

After fresh baked cookies showed up on a public forum guests started to arrive.

So Elden, Jonathon, and Christian sat down together to a rousing game of Ricochet Robots.

At some point Suzie, Julie and Cory showed up.

The game was called early as Elden was simply abusing the new players and a couple of attendees weren't interested in trying to solve the puzzles.

In the end Elden had 7, Jonathon had 1, Christian had 1 and Suzie claimed 1.

Here is one of the more difficult puzzles for your solving enjoyment.

New attendees Jonathon and Christian brought Red November, and since it could handle everyone who was there we launched into it.

Unlike most co-ops, there is player elimination in this one, which ended up not being super popular with a couple of people. Afterwards we noticed the not-quite-dead rules in the book, but that was after a few people mostly sat around for about an hour.

Also, we may have messed up a lot of rules, but in the end 3 of the gnomes survived til the end (Jonathon, Julie, and Christian (with a late game assist by Elden)

All participants were Elden, Christian, Julie, Cory, Suzie and Jonathan.

After Red November there was need of a "palette cleanser" as Cory put it. So, we played a few rounds of Toc Toc Woodman.

In game 1, The newbiness of the players and the ham handedness of a more experinced player brought the game to an abrupt end before Julie even got a turn.

Elden -1
Suzie -8
Jonathon +2
Cory +2
Mason 0
Julie NT

Game 2 was as quick.

Elden NT
Suzie -3
Jonathon NT
Cory +1
Mason +3
Julie +2

Game 3

Elden -5
Julie -1
Mason -2
Jonathon -4
Cory +2


Game 4
Elden 0
Christian +4
Suzie +5
Cory -3
Jonathon 0
Julie -2
Mason 0

Christian and Mason kind of lost interest at this point, but Scott showed up. So we launched into one of his favorites.

Game 1 was pretty rough for Elden, who somehow ended up with both 0 cards, proof follows.



Final scores

Elden 26,000
Suzie 44,000
Julie 46,000
Jonathon 44,000
Cory 44,000
Scott 55,000

Game 2 went a little better for Elden, but Jonathon put together a pretty strong outing and claimed the prize.

Elden 51,000
Suzie 40,000
Julie 36,000
Jonathon 57,000
Cory 34,000
Scott 42,000

At this point Jonathon and Christian had to take off, but Mark and Joanne showed up for some late night frivolity.

Mark and Joanne actually tried to start this up by themselves as we finished up our last game of For Sale, but I convinced them to wait and play this with the group.

This is one of those games that has completely escaped my ability to play well. After teaching everyone how to play I proceeded to do horribly. In the end, Julie and Mark were both able to accumulate 14 coins, Suzie had 11, Elden and Cory came up with 9, Scott wasn't able to form enough big chains and ended up with 7 and Joanne came in with 5.

Well, the guests all left and we put the kids in bed...but Suzie and Elden didn't feel like going to bed and played a quick game of Dominion.

Suzie was able to get some big money and some Spice Merchants, and outpace Elden's strategy of using the Rebuild to upgrade those VP's.

Suzie 52
Elden 49
