One thing that I forgot to mention last week - our gaming location got a nice upgrade - new chairs The previous chairs had issues, with people swapping chairs trying to find ones that don't lean forward. The new chars are nice and level.

Tonight we welcome special guest Mark, who normally can't make it Thursday Night. Regulars Travis and Amy are still on vacation (perhaps now visiting open National parks), but we still had a nice turnout.

Sit down and join us for our game events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Mark was eager to give this game another try. Mike and I were also willing to play again, and Jacob was willing to learn.

Since my bonus tile was every time I took a scroll I could pay a coin to get scrolls my strategy was to quickly get in game bonus tiles (and thus maximize their use) So in addition the initial bonus I got:
When I took two wheels I got a bishop and 2 coins
When I took any follower I got 2 coins in addition
When I took knights I got two knights

Mike did beat me in getting a 4th guy on the city track.

I ended the game, with nothing to do in the final double action (so I took the two points). Might have been better to do something else.

It was a family affair in Gilgit–Baltistan region of northern Pakistan.
Perhaps based on Maggie's win last week (where she kept both climbers alive to win), everyone managed to keep both climbers alive.

Mark called it a night leaving us with 7 and not a lot of time. We decided to play 7 wonders 1st. After the very 1st hand I did not see a brown card until mid age 2.

We thought we could get this game in on time, but we ran late (the D&D players were there even later). Towards the end I was just trying to end the game - partial excuse for my score. No one died.
