We did not schedule a game day for Jan 1, figuring River City Hobbies would be closed. But I found out in the afternoon that they were indeed open, and willing to host a game night. (Tom was eager to get some gaming in, and Jim was going to be there for a while anyway to continue setting up the new store).

I sent out an email asking if I should create a meetup. Derek said that Jim had already indicated that there would be gaming so I should go ahead and create one.

Given the last minute nature I didn't expect a large reply - we had 4 official RSVPs (and two were plus ones) though there were quite a few folks at RCH.

So not a lot of games were played, but it was more than zero which is what I had thought earlier in the day I would play.

We always get a game in, and usually a lot more at out events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

Tom and a bunch of folks sat down to this. From listening in it sounds like it was new to at least one person. When I left they were still in the second round. Missy won the first one

Nancy Classic hoped to eat before gaming, but left later than she hoped. While she went to get dinner she said "pick a game".
After looking at what I brought I decided to bring Progress out. I had only played twice before and wanted another play. The game has gone over well before with new players. Neal was OK with it and helped set up the game while Nancy went for food.

One thing I noticed way to late is we were supposed to take cards out of decks based on the number players. So we had way too many cards.

Other some iconography the game was figured out fairly quickly. I started age 3 (discarding age one cards) at a bad time for Neal and Nancy. Neal ended the game - he didn't like it as much as Nancy.
