DavidM started us off with this area control/majority title from Moon & Weissbaum. I sorta get it, but I'd like another crack at it.

Then we moved to Set collection via Atlantic Star. I shot myself in the hull early by bungling the 'only keep 2 extra so must sail' rule. blaargh. John and Laura were quick studies. John made it 2 for 2.

Martin Wallace's retheme of A few Acres of Snow. More area control. Very brutal and in your face game. I got bogged down in escalating conflicts and didn't buy enough armies/ships early on. I ended the game to salvage 2nd place.

Next up was Vegas Showdown. I got locked out early and often, but managed to get a slot engine going and snagged the nightclub on the cheap. So I mostly rode that plus fame and completing the sections and connections. It was enough for the win.
