The first game I played was called "6, maybe 7, people standing around trying to decide if we split up or find something that will play 6, maybe 7." I rate that game a 2.5.

We hemmed and hawed so long, the top two games I wanted to play left (well, I guess I wanted to play with the people whom the games took home as well.

When you spend 20-30 minutes not being able to decide on a game, you end up playing Biblios... twice.

All early evening gaming sins were absolved by this. It made everything right and good in the universe again.

I got there first. One of the newbies I played with last week definitely wanted to play Splendor again, and when the Dixit game filled up, he another player from last week (BJ) came over just as Blue arrived, and Splendor it was.

The game was tight, with everyone at 13 points going into the final round. The first player (Isaiah) picked up a 2-pointer, then I picked up a four-pointer. Blue could only manage a one or two (I don't really remember), then the last player picked up a four as well, to tie me. We both had 16 cards, which is the official tie-breaker, but she had more gems left over, so was credited with the win.

Isaiah left and Mitch showed up. BJ was still there, so rather than through her too much in the deep end, I tried Hanging Gardens, which I had brought along for other reasons.

BJ won again.
