Daylight savings had us fall back for an extra hour of gaming? Perhaps not, but plenty of gaming is done whether or not the hands of the clock (you remember hands on clocks, don't you?) move the wrong way.

What's up with this La Crosse board game group? Almost every month one Saturday is devoted to an all day session, and weekly Thursday evenings is another gaming session. Learn more about what you're missing at:

http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

And now here's something we hope you really like.

And now for something completely different. Munchkin makes it debut (I believe) at the board game group. (I don't know why there were kitty meowing sounds coming from this table, though.)

Amber 8 levels
Maggie 9 levels

I do understand why airplane sounds came from this gaming table. Barb and Brian (Segundo) playing as Entente takes on Will, Kevin, and David playing as Central. Two versus three doesn't seem fair!

Entente - all flying
Central - all crashed and burnt

A couple of plays of a new (older) dice rolling favorite.

Game 1:
Brian wins over Jerry, Barb, and Kevin.

Game 2:
Jerry wins over, Brian, Barb, and Kevin.

A quick, light game of zombies turning downtown La Crosse into their playground. Perhaps light, but zombies are not quick and neither was the conclusion to this game...

Amy escapes on the helipad while Amber, Maggie, Nate, Nancy Lyn, and Travis assimilate with the zombie pool.

Appropriately timed playing with Halloween a couple of days earlier. Final scoring was tragically messed up. We scored it as victory points when it is actually for two additional showing exhibitions. Net result: many more victory points are awarded than should be. The oversight was not noticed until it was too late to correct the misplay.

Nancy Classic 34
Mark 44
Chris 54
Travis 54.5

It is likely that Chris would have maintained his lead heading into final scoring over Travis if it had been played correctly.
