We welcome back original member John who has been mostly absent recently. The bad news? He is currently unemployed. The good news? He starts his new job Monday. The even better news? The job has daytime hours, and he should be able to attend more game nights!

Will and Amber showed up but Nancy Lyn and Maggie could not make it (sickness and homework). Hopefully they will be able to play next week.

It is no job to show up for 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/

This game was pre-arranged. Initially we had 5 but Amy went to Power Grid instead. On the final round I though I would get two crests (plus 4 craftsmen), but John took them both. I still would not have won, but my score would not be as pitiful.

John called it a night so Travis picked this.

On my final round, I saw that Mike had $30 and I had somewhat less. There was the most money public goal - but I saw no way time that was cheap enough / raised my income enough to take it. So I doubled up on the Stadium (+2 reputation for every border green hex) which gave me +8 reputation.

Later I realized that if I had laked a tile, I might have got the most money goal (+10 reputation) plus denied Mike 10 and may have won.

Mike 114
Brian 101 (wins tiebreaker)
Travis 101
