I'm typing this on Halloween - hopefully this geeklist is full of treats and no tricks.

On game night we welcome back Brian N a/k/a/ "Segundo" who is done hunting golfs for the season and has migrated back down south to La Crosse.

We welcome Jade to her first night.
We also welcome Aaron on his first night, even if the game he ran isn't my favorite.

Tomorrow is our monthly game day - we hope you can join us for at least part of the day. There will be some yummy treats! We also meet most weeks. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

An oldie - not 100% sure which edition was played but it looked fairy new. Certainly not in my tastes but as Tom Vasel says as long as the players in the game are having fun who am I to judge?

First play for César and Neal

Kevin win
César "Closest to Kevin but futile"
Neal "Too far from victory"
Aaron "First Eliminated"

Mike did not trade on his final move - it would have given Brian N the win.

I received this recently via a well run kickstarter and wanted to give it a try. Travis was eager also. We eventually convinced Will and Amy to join in. The game was fairly straightforward and people got a hang of it fairly soon. The game went a little longer than I hoped, but it was the first play.

Amy 39
Will 29
Travis 27

Melissa entered a novella for this (grading too many essays?)

"Jade cried because she lost River to the Alliance, hired Simon then lost Simon to the Alliance. She almost lost all her crew on her final turn. David took an early lead. Derek and Melissa took part in an epic battle to roll a four. After many botched attempts Melissa became the King of all Londinium."

First play for Jade and David

Melissa 3 goals, 2 warrants
Derek 2 goals, 5 warrants
David 1 goal, 3 warrants
Jade no goals, ? warrants
