No Travis or Amy tonight. Something about the draft. I didn't know either one was interesting in military service.

Tonight we welcome David, Chris, and Truman to their first game night. We also welcome Derek who has RSVPed yes for the past few weeks but was unable to show up.

Last week I created a game group box to keep at the store so I wouldn't have to remember score sheets. I knew we were low on nametags but remembered too late to bring some. River City Hobbies did let us use sticky notes which wasn't the best but I thank them. I will grab some from Cornerstone tomorrow.

We will address you by name at our game events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Traditionally game day was the 1st Saturday of the month, but due to scheduling issues it will vary. Be sure to check out our full schedule here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

Melissa, Derek, and I started to set up Suburbia but then more people showed up. So we started Lords of Waterdeep. But then people bowed out and we almost started Suburbia again. We finally stayed with LoD.

I neither shuffled nor delet out the initial quests, but I still got two good plot quests - the one that allows an extra agent, and the one that allows you to double up on a spot. Derek claimed I was going to win, so I got targeted by an early mandatory quest.

It took me a while to complete those quests - meanwhile others were jumping ahead. Derek's "complete a quest immediately for +4VP" came in handy.

First play for Melissa and Truman. Truman was good at recruiting adventurers, but needed to complete quests.

Melissa 136 (24 points from quest types)
Brian 128 (? score marker was removed)
César 118
Derek 109
Truman 79

After LoD we had about 90 minutes left. We had 7 players (including Tom - RCH employee) but Tom opted out.

We played one game with just the "A" side and no expansion wonders. First play for Neal.

Melissa 56
Chance 51 (wins tie)
César 51
Neal 49
Brian 47
Derek 44

We had about 45 minutes left. We figured the play would be quicker. we played with sides and expansion wonders.

Chance 66
Derek 50
César 45
Neal 44
Melissa 40
Brian 31 (worst, or second worst, game ever for me)
