It's been awhile between meetups for me, but I was finally able to make a Thursday night. We had a solid turnout of 12-15 gamers. Here is what was played.

First up for me was this quirky little dice roller. I've had it for a few months and played it a time or two with my wife, but this was the first time it's made a trip to game night. After a quick tutorial, Kim, Jason S., and a newcomer John got started. The game centers on rolling dice, and then spending those dice to do certain actions (buying seeds, planting seeds, watering seeds to grow veggies, harvesting veggies, and placing and moving special tiles). Everyone got the hang of the game rather quickly. Jason was able to end the game on his turn and secure a victory. Here are the scores:

Jason (Yellow) - 89
John (Red) - 79
Rich (Green) - 75
Kim (Blue) - 65

Mark F. brought the largest box in gaming history and was able to get Matt to play a scenario with him.

After Garden Dice was over I was able to get Darryl, Mike H., and Michael F. into a game of Rune Age. We went with the Quest for Power objective. The attrition die did not like me at all this game, and I quickly fell into a hole I never recovered from. In the end it was a battle between Darryl and Michael for first. Darryl, with his attack happy orcs, prevailed when Michael drew a hand of gold only. Here are the scores:

Darryl (Orcs of the Broken Plain) - 23
Michael (Dwarves of Dunwar) - 17
Rich (Daqan Lords) - 8
Mike (Latari Elves) - 7

There is a duck in every game. You may not see it, but it's there.

Jason S. and Kim introduced this to us to close the night out. It was a blast and my favorite way to play light pandemic, with Defenders of the realm being my favorite heavier game with this mechanic.
