What a beautiful day it was. Hardly a cloud in the sky. Not many folks were able to spend a day gaming in doors, but those who did sure had fun - well, at least I did and it is all about me after all .

Missing one play day makes it a long time between sessions. Then when I miss one and someone else misses the one before or the one after, it seems like an eternity between visits.

This was one of our rare Saturdays with no one from Fort Wayne in attendance. The same can be said about the entire state of Michigan. Please come back!




In Attendance:

Michael H
Chris C
Dave M
Matt G
Greg S
Luke S
Matt D
Kathy D (Felix D in tow with Matt and Kathy)
Nick G
Pete d
Paul M


I must apologize for not getting April's results posted. It just isn't going to happen.


The 13 June meeting will be at the other end of the church in the teen wing. Our normal room will be under heavy use with a church function on Friday the 13th. WOOHOO - we get a Friday the 13th game day!

Dave M, Chris C, and Michael H played 1 hand as we waited for others to arrive. We intended to finish the game later in the day and just never got back to it.

Matt G pulled this gem of a CDG war game out. Cards only - no board or tokens!

The victory conditions are so odd that I am not sure I could explain them to make sense here, but I will try. When a specific card (4 are seeded into the deck) is bought and played, it is time to tally VPs. There are 4 different attributes where one can earn points. The person playing the card tallies their points of the attribute on the card as modified by the card. That total is then compared against the sum lowest two other players as modified by the card.

I would like to play this again. It is on Vassal - any takers for a pbem game?

Oh, Matt beat Chris C, Dave M, and me.

Matt and Kathy and I got to play a game of this. It was fun to do so as I have not gotten to game with them the past couple of Saturdays and I had not played Carc in a long time either.

These expansions were included: Carcassonne: Expansion 1 – Inns & Cathedrals, Carcassonne: The Mini Expansion, and Carcassonne: The Phantom. The Phantom is nice because it gives you a meeple and allows it to be placed on a tile as a second placement after you put your first meeple on that tile.

Matt lost the farmer war. I guess Kathy did as well.

Greg S punched out Matt D and Luke S in a 3-way poison game of this one. The characters used were not reported.

This hit the table a number of times during the day as a filler. Everyone wanted to play against Matt G as he is a sucker for the chips.

Chris C - 2 wins
Dave M - 1 win
Matt D - no win
Nick - no win


Michael H - 1 win
Pete d - 1 win
Matt D - 1 win
Pete won the meta game total by 1 point.

I sure thought Matt won, but this is what was recorded. I have not played this in a long time and enjoyed it.

Matt G and I were eager to get in a 4 player game of this. Dave M and Nick agreed to give it a try. It did not hit their sweet spot; something about randomness......

Michael H 202
Matt G 198
Nick 92
Dave M 87


Matt let me grab large numbers of VPs and was unable to recover.

Yes, the game has random stuff in it, but after a few plays, I can say that that is fluff. Good play requires one to pay strict attention to what they build and where they build it and why to build it.

Chris' brand new shrink wrapped copy was played twice. Only 1 of the scores was recorded.

Chris C, Matt D, and Kathy D played a game.


Chris C, Paul M, and Michael H ended the night with a game that Paul won with Michael taking 2nd and Chris stuck in the mountains.

Yes, it is worker placement. There is a minor level of deck building to it as well. Not a bad game.

I taught his to Pete, Chris, and Matt G. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. We certainly had a close game. I was first player again and did the best ever from that position. Time to let someone else go first and see if it makes a difference.

Matt G 202
Chris C 201
Michael H 191
Pete d 182


Yep, all within 20 points of each other. Most interesting.
