A fine way to relax before the incoming holidays. The food and turnout was good. Can't ask for anything more than that.

We started out with 4 and kept adding as folks trickled in. I don't think I like it as a 6-player game. I might try it again with 5 using the variant suggested with three times through the deck. Twice through with 6 players was pretty random.

It was nice to see this come out. I bought this game after Scott B talked it up, but only played his copy once with 5 players and it was just too chaotic for me. I need to give it a shot again.

This was a pretty crazy game. I was left pretty much to my own skulduggery devices for most of the game. John revealed his lord early to make himself immune to attack cards. I was afraid that I would get hammered after that, but not a lot of mandatory quests were thrown around. Jay built a building that let you cycle through intrigue cards and get a little bit of gold. I used that to throw out my mandatory quests that I had in my hand since I could not give them to John.

The lucky three that got to keep flying. Several others expressed interest in a second game, but it never came together.

I was giving Jay a hard time about his record in this game. That was a mistake...I also really messed up my last turn with the role I picked and then the factories I built.

Two games played. They were accessorized with some nice card-holders that my father-in-law had made.

John, Steve, and Paul - 21 in both game (something to be said for consistency).

Another game that I hadn't heard of and another one that I quite enjoyed. I like how the different tiles have slightly different rules.

Mark - 99
Randy - 88
Sidney - 79 (messing up the pattern we had going)

The last game of the evening and it was a mistake. Funny, hilarious, but still a mistake. I think we got done about 2 am after struggling through the rules. I hadn't played since it came out and David thought he could get us through the rules pretty quickly. There probably isn't enough space for the asterisks that we need to put on the game. We were playing the co-op vs the Nazis and didn't bring in the second villain when we should have. Too many moments to mention, but something about throwing sea-captains that weren't even present into quicksand along with the rest of our allies until we could stand on them to cross. I also mocked everybody else for hanging out together so much and their flying about in a plane while my depth-challenged guy was single-handily (and eyeily?) waging a guerrilla war against the Nazis in Africa. Also, Science!

Patrick, Jason, David, and Mark - Win

Apparently our game of Manila didn't get recorded. I don't remember the exact scores, except that I narrowly beat Paul. I believe Patrick and Bill were the other players...
