A somewhat chilly yet temperate Fall night sees around 20 of us coming to Hallmark and getting full run of the upstairs for the evening.

It's great to see more of us coming again. Attendance was in the single digits last week! cry

Jesse's game "Tricks & Treats" was well received by the group and he got some valuable feedback. Not playing these kinds of games before, I must allow others to make their comments. However, I found it fun even though I was not sure what to do for a while.

4 Space Pioneers flicked their glass starships around the board resulting in carnage and mayhem as we battled for the planets.

An early incursion by Josh into Greg's side of the board results in his government revisiting their aggressive expansionist policy. If only for a while.... before taking some red planets!

Scott's board made clever use of a death defying gorge jump plus a canyon rim run (table edge with NO WALL) which resulted in hilarious pile ups and several clutch slots. After a close race in which a few of those clutch slots dropped the leader to 4th place.... Josh managed to outrun all of us with the little pink car.

The crokinole bug continues to bite Monday nights, with several "games" being played, but only one was recorded. But that's all good.

This user created game on BGG was a BLAST

"Flicking Cars with Guns" is a simple user made game with hot wheels, dice, and rulers.

Basically, you all get 2 movement flicks with your hot wheels, you measure the distance between you and an opponent, then you shoot them by rolling dice. If you are 7 inches away from me, I have to roll a 7 to hit you. Double 6's is double damage, and Snake eyes is always a miss. Every car gets 6 hitpoints, and the last man standing wins.

It's so simple and fun! you even use boxes on the gameboard to act as buildings. Hitting each other takes a hitpoint away from each and hitting a wall takes a hitpoint from you. There are endless house rules you can add, and it's just a TON of fun!

Drivers:
Mike McR in "Booger 1", the green taxi
Steve H in "Jeb", the blue Mustang
Wheeler Bob in "Chimmy Chonga" the police car
Sylas in "Full Ponty", the green Pontiac
Stosh in "Super Chicken", the orange Plymouth super wing
Scott in "Shadow Fax" the black something car

As for winners, Mike McR won both rounds! Yay Mike!

Super fun user created game

A few of us stayed late like old times and played Firefly!

The mission was "Desperadoes" in which we had to be the first to earn $15,000 credits.

Such a beautifully thematic game that can run a little long for what it is... but it's still a game made purely for fans of the show. And since we all were, it works out great

4 rival crews, reavers, and that pesky alliance cruiser. But one winner.....

Mike McR: $15,300
Steve H: $12,200
Scott: $11,600
Stosh: $6,000

Great game guys!
