Tonight we welcome Jesse (not to be confused with newish member Jessie) and Becca. Rest assured name tags were not optional tonight.

Also tonight Laura Ann (who has shown up quite a bit lately) actually joined our meetup group. Welcome Laura Ann!

Whether you actually join out meetup group or not, you are welcome to our game events (though we prefer you did so we can have an accurate head count). We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. The full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Note that we WILL meet January 30, just not in our usual location. Stay tuned.

Derek got this game recently and finally got it to our gaming table, Maggie and Travis joined fairly quickly. I was interested, but held back in case we needed more game teachers. I finally went for it.

I started out with one missing on the opposite corner of the board (but I also had one going back). I finished the 1st one and managed to get a place to hide my wanted leader so I could go safely through alliance space. I was almost back to my start spot when Dereke won. He had the perfect set of contracts to win the game.

Maggie got Kaylee (and pink dress) and River early, but later had to kill someone and chose River.

Travis did get one goal token before Derek won.

I need to watch this series again.

Derek Win
Travis 1 goal
Brian 0 goals $2600
Maggie 0 goals $1700

First play for Nate, Amber and Laura Ann.
The leader changed 3 times during the final roll-off
Personally I would have written down the actual final roll (e.g. 8 fives)

Nate win
Amy lose
Brian N lose
Amber lose
Laura Ann lose (another new game not won)

Derek chose this after winning Firefly. Neither Travis nor I were thrilled but we played along. Since I am very suboptimal with bluffing, I just played it straight (never lieing) - definitely not an optimal strategy.

First play for all but Derek. (I think - not sure about Maggie)

In order of how long they stayed non-eliminated
Derek win
Maggie
Brian
Travis

First play for me.

I build an awesome dungeon - doing 13 damage to any adventurer. unfortunately my dungeon was too scary and no adventurer would visit it (except the fool).

Amber (Cerebellus) 10
Laura Ann (Xyzax) 6
Maggie (Draculord) 5
Brian (King Croak) 1

Jesse and Becca were introduced to this popular (and definitely more complicated than Ticket to Ride) game.
They held their own.

Nobody made their private goal (though many made their neighbor's). Jess had most contiguous grey, but with Will and Nancy fighting for most grey he quickly gave up.

Jess 84
Nancy Lyn 79
Becca 71
Will 65 (can claim co-teaching)
