These are the games I saw played at B.L.O.B. in the month of August. Since I had a family commitment (Niece's 9th birthday), I was only able to stay for a few hours. I am hoping some other players will help to fill in the blanks. Please feel free to add any games or comments to the list.

Rhonda was "forced" to play this multiple times with Jerry and Brian. I think the ended up playing it 5 times.

A 6 player game of this happened. I heard a few groans and laughs so fun was had by all.

None of us has ever played this and yet we all decided at 8 pm this game was worth a play. Fast forward 6 hours later and I can barely keep my eyes open and it shows in my final score. That is more of a Dave thing to play games this long that late.

We played the new standard rules, so I have no comparison to the original version but I did enjoy the game. The variable setup of alien races will keep this game from feeling repetitive. At the end of the game, a fight occurred over the fuzzy dice that might lead to T house-ruling the card.

I am almost embarrassed to post these scores.
T - $2250
Mike - $1150
Scott - $2220
Kearn - $410

Guildhall offers interesting choices with card powers based on the number of cards you have in your guild. After a round of play, everyone seemed to grasp the turns and it was a tight game with anyone of us capable of winning in the end.

Jerry - 21
Aaron - 16
Kearn - 16

Mike talked the 6 of us to play Lifeboats where negotiation and well planed movements of your pawns can score you lots of points. Mike tried to wheel and deal but ultimately it ended up with him losing the majority of his pawns. I don't think his best strategy was trying to convince everyone to throw his wife's, Rhonda, pawns into the drink.

Jerry - 17
Kearn - 27
T - 37
Rhonda - 17
Mike - 7
Brian - 22

A couple of Mike's friends played this and it sounded like a defensive game as I heard the final score was 3 - 0.
