Matt and Chris were playing this Wonderland-themed card game as I arrived. Apparently this is one of those "do NOT take points/tricks" type of games

Continuing our merry threesome, I introduced Trevor (and re-acquainted Matt) with one of my fave area majority tweeners. I kept getting locked out, but picked up a key Brown tile early on, to at least snag one museum placement per round. Eventually, I started going Lemons which gave me better position. In the end, my 5x Museum w/ 4 lemons carried the day (and 2 browns with a 5x multiplier and 3 blacks).

The Terra Mystica crew romped through Wallenstein (which I know from the Shogun version).

With the Wallenstein crew still busy and sans Trevor, we were back to a trio. For some reason, this took FOREVER to 'splain. I think it's a 30 minute tweener, really it is. If so, I'm prepared to love Vineta. If not, it is TLFWII (Too Long For What It Is). I quickly glommed on to power of going last and how to apply maximum screwage, especially w/ shortening the period of engagment etc. I was able to protect my district and snag some purples and somehow eke out the win with 4 saved colors plus my district and a couple of misc. houses. Yeah, I'll play again--there is a LOT of gaming goodness and bits crammed into a very modest sized package.

Whiile waiting for Wallenstein to finish and that group to have dinner, Matt and I decided to revisit Great Wall of China. I needed the 5 minute 'fresher course. I kept to my strategy of 'winning low' to try to snag both tiles. Despite Matt getting a big 8 pointer, I was able to save cards to sweep the last wall plus one remaining contested one.

Avalon is our new tradition (although I dearly miss our old tradition of Cosmic Encounter) and with 6 remaining, that made for a nice tidy game. I was loyal, and frankly clueless, nearly giving the throne away at the end. Two quick successes, however, put Arthur's company in the catbird seat and the last mission was a slam-dunk success for GOOD, but foiled by the Evil Intelligence network:

-->See Chris' notes.

by this time my cold meds had caught up w/ me and ennui set in. RJ did a good job of coaching this new game, but frankly I was a blur at this point. I'll leave it to others to debate the game's merits and report the scores:
