From the notes on the score sheet, it appears that Scott made an amazing comeback after being down 30-0

Kirby - Blackbeard - Win
Scott - Misty - Last out
Matt N. - del Gato - 3rd out
Steve H. - Spartacus - 2nd out
Robbie - Dingo Jack - 1st out - 1st shot dead

Played last man standing just to teach movement, challenges and fighting rules to 4 noobs.

Blackbeard loaded up on a ton of gear right away ( Riot shield, Uzi, spike thrower), while the others picked away at each other with weaker weapons.

Dingo died in caverns via a single Uzi-burst (opfire)

Spartacus (combat knife) vs. del Gato (Rapier) was a great and bloody melee.

Misty and Blackbeard ended up shooting at each other across a lake.

Mission 6 - Agents in Black

Teddy as Agent Iridium
Brian as Agent Titanium
Rob T as Agent N
Greg as Agent Chromium
Jeff as The GD Droid

After surviving the onslaught from the previous mission our next objective was simple find the alien moles that infiltrated our base and revealed its location to the alien commanders.

Compared with previous mission this was much easier for our battle hardened agents.

Within moments of the agents search they discovered an alien operative and killed him before he could escape. With the alien commander dead the mission was a complete success.

Next time on GD... "Visitors"

I finally learned the group's favorite (lately) auction game.
Guess I did okay.

$420K - SCOTT
$350K - Stosh
$280K - Steve H
$220K - Rick B
$220K - Robbie O

Game #2:

$430K - STOSH
$410K - Rick B
$330K - Scott
$320K - Steve H

My Game 2 Strategy (based on observations from Game 1) didn't work...

d10-1d10-0 DIME Play!

On Friday, a couple of us met up at Mr. Sweets.

Been wanting to get this back on the table as it got pushed to the side with Keyflower. Unfortunately, the wooden tokens suck and are basically 4 layers pressed together like plywood. Some were bad to begin with but several years later, and several were falling apart. That's a problem when components are purposely limited and someone magically gains an extrea piece.

Besides that, it seemed the game was well received though not much commentary during the game. It is about market manipulation and making enough money to get your family into the guilds which in turn scores points at game end.

Ryan (Red) 80
Jeff (Green) 75
Robbie (Yellow) 54
Brian (Blue) 64

For the next game, we pulled this one out. Jeff wanted to go home and sleep. So we recruited another guy in the shop to be the 4th. I am not sure what game Robbie was playing but he made himself a target by grabbing the strongbox in the Engine. He got shot and pummeled a lot, as the score reflects.


Ryan (Red) $2,700
Shawn (White) $2,000
Robbie (Black) $0
Brian (Blue) $2,850
