We had a fairly large crowd considering how nice it was.
It was also International Tabletop day, but we scheduled our event before it was announced. I know Curt and Neal went to the events at River City Hobbies and / or Games by James.

Tabletop day or not we meet most weeks and have a game day most months (due to scheduling issues we may not have a game day in May). Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

Thanks to all who donated money. Neither Meetup nor supplies are free. This months intake helped a lot.

As usual, games are not in order played

First play for Brian N. First full play for Mike and I (last time Mike started and I ended). I built a warehouse in Ruhrort but the only time exports went to my country was when it was a “no pilot action” round. (same for Brian N) I managed to build in every city for 5 bonus VPs (1 for 3 Eastern cities, 1 for 3 Western, and 3 for all 7 cities) I also squired the Rurtelbaum (1 VP per warehouse in a city)

There was talk of continuing the coal series with Kohle & Kolonie but Travis wasn't quite up to teaching. Mike suggested this and Travis wanted to learn. I saw Curt in the Parking lot and grabbed him to join.

Curt found the “get military and occupy colonies” strategy, and he and Mike weer runaway leaders.
I managed to land on a few VP tokens, and used my wonders as best as I could.

What score track wraps at 134???

This game is supposed to be a relatively short (for a space empire game), but it took 7 hours. Derek tells me they did start with the extra action tokens which did extend the game. Derek also says plenty of combat which also takes time. Plus there were some new folks I assume.

First play for Brian N. My second play. We played with the advanced rules – though we forgot to draw the event one month. Yes we did get drunk clowns.

I tried to ratchet my performances but wasn't entirely successful.

First play for Janelle? I looked an I think they were in the last round – but it definitely took a while
I've never seen anyone so excited to win by one point. Comments say “Capuchins Rule”

Feel free to fill in the roles others played
