$12,900 - Steve H (as Nandi, Cap'n-ing the Bonnie Mae) guess who rolled first...? (-cough- broken -cough-)
$11,200 - Nathan Woz (as Mal, in the Bonanza)
$ 7,500 - John Poz (as Corbin, flying Serenity)
$ 1,400 - Scott (as Burgess in the Yun Qi)

Games played at Mr Sweets.

Pulled this one out for my 10x10. Shouldnt' have added in the expansion yet as I wasn't familiar enough with those tiles and we messed up some of the scoring at the end. But I have 9 more times to get it right:

Ryan's 10x10. Prediction was made that the player to the left of the least capable player would win. Nick was on my right.....

A four-player game, the first for John P. It was fairly cutthroat, leading to our decision that the next expansion needs to have a traitor mechanism.

SCOTT: 98 (but only because he couldn't be yellow)
Steve H: 92
Jesse: 91
John P: 69

Played this at 10th Planet.

Once again Keith is the big winner here, though I think George would have gotten closer or passed Keith had he gotten some extra bonuses from Airports and one other tile I can't recall. It was a first game for everyone but me and I may not have explained everything to its fullest, as there are certain tiles that get boosts upon further placement of certain tiles. George and Keith liked it, Carl didn't.

Keith - 92
George - 81
Greg - 73
Carl - 42

We finished the night with some slap-happy fun. I made a homemade version of TeleStrations (we don't have a copy yet, but will shortly, it was a hit), using Apples To Apples cards for subjects.

Everyone had a blast, some more running jokes were definitely born tonight (-cough- Robbie -cough-).

Played this at 10th Planet with the Tribes and Prophesies expansion. I started out with an extra worker and was kind of hamstrung early for corn, but George was in a similar boat. My second ever play, and I learned the hard way that you need the monuments for those end game points. I didn't have any. I seem to remember doing better in the first game I played maybe a year ago?

Keith - 78
George - 68
Carl - 59

Games played at Mr Sweets.

Grabbed our extended group to join Nick, Ryan, Jeff and myself. Lance and his fiancee Amanda, Lindsey. Two others from the store joined in, whose names I did not catch.

The ladies and me were the werewolves. One slipped a little and gave herself away butt he others did a good job of shifting around blame. I stayed mostly hidden having gained Ryan's trust early on. It came down to the final vote with one werewolf placing on the wrong card that could have forced a tied and let us kill the last villager.

I like this one a lot better than regular werewolf and it is growing on me.

This is one of my 10x10 games, and one that I'm glad to give more love to. It was a learning game for Greg and Zack. It took them a little bit to get their heads around the strategy, but once they got it, the game flew.
