Invited a few friends over for a game day. It was a pleasure to host Seth and his friend Michelle, as well as Nathan and Adam.

Our day kicked off at around 2pm, with Adam and I finishing our final game around 12:30am. Any game day that includes around 10 hours of gaming is a success!

Nathan was first to arrive, so we kicked it off with his first play of Medina. This was my first play against someone other than my kids, so I was curious to see how adult competition would compare. Nathan did quite well, but I still squeaked out a victory.

First play on my copy, though I had played it at Sasquatch about a month ago.

Michelle is a fairly new gamer, so we felt like this was probably a wiser choice than KanBan or Panamax.

The game went great - only I had played, but Seth knew the rules a bit. I finished either 3rd or 4th, but thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

OK, so we didn't play Pizza Theory, we stopped for a bit to eat some pizza during ZhanGuo... appreciate my wife (the non-gamer) for running out to pick up a few pies for us.

Seth managed to snag a copy of this at BGG.CON a few days ago. Adam joined us as we wrapped up final scoring on ZhanGuo, so we needed something for five players.

I must say that though it is thematically dry, the gameplay is certainly interesting. It pays homage to Steding's Hansa Teutonica in some slight regards, but stands on its own quite well. I definitely want to play again, though not sure it is a guaranteed "buy" on my part.

Adam stuck around for one more game, as the others had long drives back home.

I had never won at Imperial Settlers, but the cards just seemed to flow SO well for me tonight. I managed a 10-point win with the Romans (vs the Barbarians). Feels good to win, but even more satisfied to have a fun day gaming with friends.
