Our group has been on a Rosenberg kick lately! Denise and Dave played Patchwork, and he killed her.

Denise suggested Mystery of the Abbey and we had a good time. It's similar to Clue, but the rooms do different things and you are asking people questions instead of just showing each other your cards. Ben and I talked about this on the way home and agreed, it is really tough to come up with good questions.

Dave - win
Ben, Christy, Denise - loss

I would like to very peacefully note that Todd, Julia, and Patrick played Sentinels of the Multiverse and there are no details on the list. Todd, can you tell us what happened in the game?

After Mystery of the Abbey, our group needed a filler to sync with the Sentinels group. Evil Pie! Ben and I tied for the win and there is no tiebreaker in the rules, so we invented our own (only works for 2p). Each person draws one of the remaining slices, highest number wins. Theoretically you could still tie, but that isn't what happened...

I had to change the Image ID for Uptown, because it defaults to a totally different version of the game. Dave showed it to us briefly -- it involved placing tiles on a grid. I think the "captures" are when you surround another person's piece?

Todd - win TB (2 groups, 4 captures)
Denise - 2 groups (5 captures)
Dave - 3 groups

Patrick, Julia, Ben, and I played XCOM. We tried the "Domination" scenario and we had it on Easy mode (pretty sure Patrick was pausing it all the time). Julia rocked out as the scientist and gave us lots of tech (except for Patrick), but sadly we lost anyway. South America was covered in UFOs at the end.

Group Loss:
Patrick - central officer
Julia - chief scientist
Ben - commander
Christy - squad leader

Meanwhile, the other three played Puerto Rico. I'm glad Dave was able to get his Puerto Rico fix without me, and Todd could play in a group with no rules teaching/learning.

After XCOM, Patrick and Julia were debating whether to take off or stay for one more quick game, so I pulled Tiki Topple off the shelf. Light as all heck, but great game and awesome components.

Christy 31
Patrick 28
Julia 22
Ben 11

Partway through the game, I took a closer look at the rules and learned that you can't play an "up x" card unless the tiki can actually move x spaces. At one point prior to that, I had played an "up 3" and only moved it 2 spots. So Patrick may have been the rightful winner on this one!

Ben and I were almost ready to leave when Dave and Denise reassured me that they were pretty close to being done. So Ben and I played a couple games of Lost Cities, the first of which doesn't count because he thought the scoring worked differently.

Dave, you might want to look into getting some of the "mixed" sheets where the numbers are all out of order. The ones you have really are beautifully laminated, though!
