Despite having our big Game On Game Con just a few days ago we still had an OK turnout for this evening. We had an eclectic mix of games played this evening that ranged from ants to trains.

About the Game on! Game Night: We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays (plus the occasional 5th Tuesday) of the month at Avon United Methodist Church from 6:30-9:30. The next game night will be on December 3rd.

We started with a five player game of this investment and speculation game. David B. and myself were the owners.

David and Brian played the higher risk investments. Ethan tried to, but everyone he invested in did not work out. For the last couple of rounds, David and Brian continued to risk it, while Ethan settled for modest profits on the low risk investments. In the last turn the red and orange investments (including a x2 investment) went bust. This led to David only having enough money to 0 out, and Brian was $50,000 short. For some inexplicable reason he paid David first, so I booted him out of the game out of spite when he could not pay.

Investors:
Ethan: $60,000
David: 0
Brian: Eliminated

Owners
David B. $575,000
Sean $420,000

This is a game that I had picked up a couple of months ago, and had been wanting to get played.

For the first year everyone kind of struggled to figure the game out and get a sense of what the best move was. However, by the end people were starting to get it and points racked up.

Overall though I think the overall opinion was very mixed.

Kathy played half a game of this over the weekend, so she really wanted a chance to try it again. I think she liked it (for a deck builder)

After Myrmes we followed up with this role selection game. In a four player game it is a little chaotic and there can be a lot of messing with each other's plans. This happened to most people, except Ethan who waited and then bought what he needed to win at just the right time.

The train theme continued as a full five players sat down for this set collection game. They only made it through two days, but there was a clear winner
