Found another Cribbage player! Eric and I threw down, and he managed to score 20 points on the last hand to beat me (I would have won with my hand plus the crib - alas).

ERIC: 121
Jesse: 106

I taught this one to Steve H. I ended up with a market full of trinkets I couldn't move, and he ran away with the game.

I learned and taught this a couple of times at Mr. Sweets on Tabletop Day, and Nick won the store copy, so I taught again. I did a very poor job, as we were all quite confused throughout. I still think there's a good game here, I just need to understand the game better. We didn't win, but then we probably played a lot of it wrong.

We played Zombology, a prototype I got from Jackson Pope in the UK after giving him some feedback during National Game Design Month. It's a drafting game where you're scientists trying to cure zombieism. Seemed to go over fairly well.
