I am moving in a week, so we declared tonight an extended game night and we played for an extra two hours. We also had a great turn out with close to 20 people coming to play.

This of course meant a lot of great games got played.

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 February 4th.

We got the night kicked off with a five player game of this light hockey game. Greg had a team loaded with bruisers and he used it to get everyone else weak. Despite all of the injuries I clawed my way to the playoffs and went against Jeff. His team was better, and he swept me.

Jeff- Win
Sean- Playoffs
Greg- 5

This was the big new game that got played in the evening. Four people farmed their caves, but it appears only one was really good at it.

Kathy went with a big ticket strategy based around having an established north/south route. Jeff had big tickets that required going coast to coast. He made sure to hit as many six route as possible, and horded cards like no one's business. I tried an odd-ball low ticket strategy that focused on just claiming the big six train routes, but Jeff kind of blocked me on that. Greg and Kalen found themselves being the ones squeezed out.

It has been a very long time since this game came out at a game night, but four people built their civilization one die roll at a time.

This deck builder is apparently a bit deeper and more aggressive than the average game in the genre. I know it was a learning game, but it took awhile.

This game has been one of the mainstays of the game night, so I was really glad it got played tonight. We had an epic nine player game. Along with Merlin and the Assassin we also used Percival and Morgana.

Merlin ended up as start player and sent an all good team. The next team had a spy who dangerously slow played it. This made two good wins, and the same team went with a fail this time. This made it 2 to 1, with the fourth round that needed two fails. The game had a lot of debate this time, and I managed to earn enough trust to get myself on the mission with another spy and we failed it.

It was now tied going into the last round, and everything was muddled. Accusations and counter-accusations were flying. We got the point where one more fail was going to cause an auto-evil win. It turned out that it had gotten around the table and Merlin was making the team again. He sent five good guys, and good won the last mission. However, this tipped his hand a bit too much and the assassin pegged him for Merlin.

So evil triumphed!

Bad Guys: Kathy (Assassin), Sean (Morgana), Jeff

Good Guys: David R (Merlin), David B. (Percival), Cody, Kalen, Greg, Matt

David and I had played this game recently, and we were both wanting to play it again. This was Greg's first game and he really focused on the office spots that gave points. He was the point leader for most of the game, and is lead started to get big at one point. However, he did not have enough prepared for big point swings and in turns 10 and 11 fell behind.

Matt and David attempted to play this game. I think they struggled some with the rules. Stuff happened, who knows?

A couple of games of coup were played. In the first round David B. had a really good combination (Duke/Captain) that ensured money was not much of a problem.

In the second game, I was able to use a captain to steal David R.'s money and force him to make a bad call or face a coup.

I think this might have been Shawna's first game, but the scores do not reflect that.

After having some rule misunderstandings before we started, we got off to a four player game. There was bluffing and some bold calls. Matt scored ones, but David R. pulled down the win.
