Not a bad night for gaming and the weather was a lot more pleasing than weeks past. Quite a bit of big games going on that makes for a smaller report. I don't have all the reports to so please aadd the games missed. I think about 14-15 people just going off memory.

A bunch of us wanted to combo knockout our 10 x 10 lists. for the 10 x 10 challenge of 2014. A bunch of barons set forth to become the best train aficionado of Europe. In this rather unorthodox cut-throat version (via the lingering event deck) of Railways their could be only one... Railroad Tycoon!

A few folks took on the obstacle of powering the country of China. A rather elaborating task to ask of these every day gamers but they were up to the task.

Decatur (Black) - 17
Becky (Purple) - 16
Robbie (Red) - 15* Breaks the tie with Brian due to being less of a tool, I believe.
Brian (Blue) - 15
Nathan (Green) - 13

A group of colonial governors or NWIBGAers got together to play a game of Puerto Rico. Governor Becky and Governor Nathan were new to the game of creating, manufacturing, and shipping goods across the seas. It was 4 very interesting play styles made for a great game of a timeless classic.

Becky - 55
Ryan - 54
Nathan - 48

Stephanie & Paul taught themselves this good abstract game. They played again when joined by Diane, Newer Mike, & New Jessica.

I finally picked us up a copy. I'd played this at a friend's awhile ago and was surprised how fun it was. Scratches my puzzle game itch. You hold a hand of tiles w various colored shapes. On your turn, you play tiles from your hand to the table crossword or Scrabble fashion, matching rows or columns by color or shape. You score points for each lay, depending on number and combo you put down.

Stuck on a Q thing, apparently, Jessica brought in the Dice-Builder Quarriors. They played twice that I saw.

I got this as a Christmas gift. It's a pretty good party game with a nifty 5 second timer. I forgot to write up a slip when we played, but I think I remember Brian M. winning by a lot.
