First game night of April (No fooling - woke up with snow on the ground today) and possibly the last game night at the Cornerstone until summer. (We will still have game days there).

Curt showed up on a rare game night and brought some fellow Organic Valley people: Jen (a veterinarian) and Ryan (a dairy farmer). We also welcome Chance. Janelle showed up for here second game night and long time meme member Bill is still waiting for tennis.

Next week we are trying out La Crosse's new game store - River City Hobbies (same name as the old one, but new owner). Be sure to check out our schedule because we may move around. it is here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

Mike picked up the new edition of Planet Steam at River City on opening day (and was the 1st person to start a board game punch card). The picture is from the (very large and expensive) 1st edition.

I vaguely remember looking at the rules when the 1st edition came out, but didn't remember much. My only strategy was keep my locations close and try to stay early in turn order to get cheaper tanks (this didn't';t always work out at the market).

Cash* + spaces + tanks** + luxury certificates = total
Brian 203 + 175+ 150 + 100 = 628
Amy 143 + 150 + 125 + 50 = 568
Mike 190 + 125 + 175 + 50 = 540
Bill 188 + 200 + 100 + 100 + 50 = 538
Travis 187 + 125 + 125 + 100 = 537

*includes resource sell off
** includes superchargers

Not 100% sure of the map - but given it was the 1st play for Melissa, Chance and César it is certainly possible it was the U.S.

Chance 12 (wins $ tie)
César 12

I not that neither the veterinarian nor the dairy farmer had any cows on their farm. Neither did Janelle, but she did have "Yeoman Farmer" which stops VP loss for missing items (except empty spaces)

Second play for Janelle, but here 1st play was the solo family game. First play for Jen and Ryan

Curt 55
Janelle 33
Jen 23
Ryan 14

I'm guessing they did not play with the extra wonders I bought at River City since it was the first play for Melissa, Chance and César (I'm pretty sure they played the "A" side)

Will 46
Amber 45
Melissa 44
Chance 42
Wes 40 (wins tie)
César 40
