We had our traditional game day earlier in the month in La Crosse, and now two weeks later we had a game day in Winona. Not only was it out first game day in Winona, but it was also our first month with two game days.

Game day was held in the party room at the Winona Godfather's Pizza. All the fountain drinks we could consume and a decent gaming space – other than when they ran the dough through the kneading machine which cause odd sounds. Probably the funnies thing was when one of the employes came down to deliver a pizza and said “wow – you really are playing board games!”.

We welcome Dalton who showed up for his first gaming event.

It is unlikely there will be a game day every month in Winona, but stay tuned for future game nights and days in addition to our regular gaming in La Crosse . For our full schedule check here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

As usual, games may not be in the order played.

7 Wonders

This game was set up and explained while Curt and I played pinball upstairs. Curt put some money in before noticing that there were more credits than expected. We just called it after a while – we could have played for quite a while.

Back downstairs we all played the “A” side and without the expansion wonders because it was Janelle's first play. Curt's “no resource” strategy probably was not the best.

Barb 56
César 49
Janelle 48
Brian 45
Amber 44 (wins money tiebreaker)
Curt 44
Will 41

And a second time later:
Maggie 61
Wes 57
Melissa 53
Nancy Lyn 48 (wins money tiebreaker)
Barb 48
Nancy 37
César 30

And a third time later:
Barb 59
Maggie 57
Will 54
Amber 46 (wins money tiebreaker)
Nancy 46
Nancy Lyn 44
Melissa 34

This game is probably near the top when it comes to games I am bad at but still like. First play for all but Barb, Nancy and myself.

If Wes wasn't the 1st to touch the first flag he was close. He rapidly came close to the second (and last) flag. He then proceed to get caught up in conveyor belts for most of the rest of the game.

This my be my first win of this

Brian 1st
Nancy 2nd
Wes 3rd
Barb 4th
Dalton 5th
Andrew 6th (had to leave early)

Played with (just?) the K deck. Janelle has been playing this solo and forgot that it is only 2 food per family member instead of 3.

First play for Janelle. Will made Janelle's private goal (most grey) and I made Wills (most blue). Janelle went backwards on purpose to get two public goals (lowest reputation and highest income) Will got the other public goal (most contiguous grey). I made my private goal (most airports)

Battle for Souls. Mike was initially a “no” because he had to judge a track meet. But they got done early so he could make it to game day. Having Kickstarted the game, Mike is actually in the game.
Mike got sent to Hell.

There were a lot (9) of ships sunk in this game. My win was largely due to not having a ship sunk – I kept using my cards to keep one harbor open and just kept moving goods back and forth.

Lewis & Clark

Wes went on about playing this, but then not wanting to because he was worried he was overhyped about it. So they waited until he left before they played it.

Nancy says the Franklin's conspired against her, and made he look like a racist (hiring Indians)

Amber win (+ 3)
Nancy -15 scout / - 19 camp
Will -14 scout, -21 camp

Needed a game that was well known. We played pretty quick because of our experience. Travis blamed his problems on playing with my copy of the game. He got hurt by the distant market in the Canal era.
