3 rebel scum thwarted my attempt to bring peace to the galaxy by keeping all the local systems in line.

Bill played a Hoth speeder deck, Patrick a Jedi Yoda deck, and Dustin a Han-Chewie-Falcon deck against my Dark Side challenge deck. I was one turn behind bringing out the fully armed and operational battle station but Bill was able to drop the Mon Calmari Captial Class Destroyer Home One with Admiral Ackbar at the helm. The Emperor's plans did not proceed as he had foreseen and the pitiful little band conquered an entire legion of his best troops.

I picked this up for 98 cents and it's definitely worth the price. It's sort of a geometric uno like game. Bill was able to take the win.

2/6 a 3 player game of Suburbia at GameQore with Cates, Bryce(?), and I.

Bryce ended up winning, I just could not get victory points this game. I had money but it apparently wasn't helping any.

After that was a 3 player game of this one with me, Steve, and CB. I think I have a better hang of it now and want to give it another shot. I focused on completely the wrong type of victory points and Cates ran away with the win here.

Saturday we gave this a shot. Because of how quick it goes I think we played around 10 games of it. It's a fun little filler that felt a bit like Fluxx.

After that we played a game of Eldritch Horror vs Yog-Sothoth. It went bad from the start, first round we dropped 5 places on the doom track when a normal round is maybe 1-3ish. He awoke and we lost.

Donovan and I were home yesterday because he had a school holiday so we broke out this one. He's getting it pretty good, I need to go digging for some more challenging maze layouts to try and stump him now.

Τι μπορώ να πω γι 'αυτό σχεδόν πάρα πολύ απλό από ένα παιχνίδι Gaze Zogar του . Χθες το βράδυ παίξαμε τρία παιχνίδι παίκτη Steve C , Mark C και Boom Boom . Είναι ένα είδος πατήστε την τύχη σας παιχνίδι όπου κι αν μείνουν για πολύ στο μπουντρούμι μπορείτε να χάσετε όλα . Ο Steve είχε κάνει φανταστική μετακίνηση μέσα από τα μπουντρούμια , ενώ ο Mark είχε το πρόβλημα με ένα επίπεδο τέρατα , έπεσα σε ένα λάκκο δύο φορές η πρώτη φορά που μου πήρε αρκετούς γύρους πριν ήμουν σε θέση να πάρει τη δεύτερη φορά πρώτη ζαριά και ήμουν έξω . Roland εμφανίστηκε και νόμιζα ότι είχε ολοκληρώσει τις απαιτήσεις μου να κερδίσω μόνο για να ανακαλύψει τους ληστές έκλεψαν ένα από τα στοιχεία μου - Μια ψεύτικη νίκη είναι η μεγαλύτερη απώλεια , εξακολουθώ να πιστεύω ότι παίξαμε τους ληστές λάθος νομίζω ότι αν πληρώνονται από σας θα πρέπει να πάρει την ανταμοιβή . Όταν Roland εμφανίστηκε καλέσαμε κλείνει μόνο για να ανακαλύψει ότι δεν ήταν σε θέση να μείνετε . Κινηθήκαμε προς PAX P. δεν είχα το μυαλό η ανοησία του παιχνιδιού και θα παίξει και πάλι φαίνεται να είναι αρκετά και πολύ από ένα καυστήρα του εγκεφάλου μικρή που θα μπορούσε εύκολα να χωρέσει ανάμεσα σε ένα ζευγάρι των βαρέων παιχνίδια .

After that we waited until Steve D went out for a smoke break and played a 4 player game of Suburbia. I just couldn't get an engine going here and ended up in 3rd. Kellyn took first place.

Wednesday was Andrew's birthday so what better way to celebrate then to try and figure out which of us is a fraking toaster.

6 player game of BSG, we were actually doing pretty good and about 5 distance in when it all went south. Luke playing Callie executed Kellyn playing Bill Adama and revealed as a Cylon. Kellyn came back and the one last loyalty card in the deck was apparently also our second Cylon and it just kept on going bad from there. The humans were able to get to about 8 distance and then Galactica blew up on us.

After that we gave the new expansion for Sentinels of the Multiverse a try. It was The Sentinels, Setback, Ra, Legacy, and KNYFE vs Baron Blade's Vengeful Five. It ended up being pretty close but we saved the day. The new mechanic with all of the villains working together is interesting. I like it.

Thursday night we played Fortune and Glory with 6 people. Michael ended up winning this one after he spent all night chasing the Zeppelin around the globe. I need to go look at the expansions and see about grabbing one of them.

Saturday night Eldritch Horror vs Cthulhu. We weren't doing to bad at first but it quickly went downhill. Steve D went crazy early on only to have his next character die violently as well. After a few more investigator deaths we just decided to call it. We were down to 2 on the doom track and there was no way we were going to beat Cthulhu at that point.

After that we decided that we didn't hate each other nearly enough so played a 6 player game of Game of Thrones. I ended up as the Starks in the north surrounded by the Greyjoys on one side and the Baratheons on the other. I apparently have completely forgotten how to play this game because by the time I was set up to actually do stuff it was already over.

The Greyjoys won and there wasn't anywhere near enough anger flowing around the table yet.
