In contrast with last week (2 people), tonight we had 15.
We welcome back Jake who has been busy taking care of folks at the hospital (don't they take gaming into account when they get sick / injured?)
We also welcome Taylor who lives in the Pacific Northwest and is taking a class from Will.

Quite a few 1st plays tonight.

1st play or 1,000th play, you are welcome to our events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

We had our usual hemming and hawing until I finally said "I'd like to give Edo another try) (I've played once before). Mike was OK with teaching and Mandi and Steve were interested in trying.

I wasn't sure the game would end when it did, so my final action was to put two samurai out (2 VP) instead of a temple (3VP, but that also meant triggering end game).

Mandi did say she liked the game before she won. Congrats on her first post marriage win against Mr. Mandi!

Mandi 15
Brian 14 (wins resource tiebreaker)

Nate said not to wait for him (and his kids) - that they had a game in mind (though others were welcome to join).

First play, and fun exploring Jules Verne's setting.

Greg RSVP about 10 minutes after I checked the list.
We suggested this game as easy to figure out. First play for everyone.

Greg and Gwen were thinking about getting this game, so they tried it out. I didn't have the heart to tell them that there are no less than 3 different rules for scoring farmers.

First play for everyone.

Sounds like this game was mostly Jake's idea. Mike did help them get set up.

Sometimes it pays to be cautious. Neither of Maggie's climbers made it to the highest spot (6 and 7 VP), but she did keep them both alive.

Maggie 13
Jake 11 (1st to the top, the other died)
