Happy birthday Jessica!

I read the BGG description, sounds fun. Is it anything like Cheeky Monkey? The page listed it as a Kickstarter...Olmsteads backed it?

I wanted in on Formula D today but couldn't be there at the beginning. I assume they used the special Indy track?

Not surprised to see that Julia won one of these and almost both. She is great at auction games.

I arrived late and watched the end of Splendor. The table agreed that this is truly a mind-blowing game, deserving of every type of accolade.

Yay, Denise brought Parfum and we got to play a girls' game with Anna!

The game didn't really click with me at first and I had to play the first turn, but after that it was all good. You roll dice in order to collect tiles, and the tiles constitute different parts of your perfume. Then you can sell the perfume to different customers who want some characteristic/s of the perfume you have. Your fortune in the game depends a lot on which customers come out at what time -- instead of doing the loser-picks-first thing a la Fresco (another Queen game), I think that bidding for turn order like you do in Scoville would be AWESOME in Parfum.

Thanks for teaching, Denise!

The Keyflower crew was at it for quite some time. I'm behind the curve on this one. Andrew reported having gotten a ton of points from tools, as he won the tile he needed near the end of the game in order to count those points.

Dave? Julia? Patrick? Jessica? (no record on sheet)

It was Denise's first game; apparently Julia taught her well. No info on how end scoring went (towers/money/etc cutoffs, points).

This game wasn't even ON the list. Slackers!

Didn't know Deus worked as a 2p game. Still haven't played.

Dave suggested Hacienda and that made me happy because I had played it before. Always nice to start out with some idea of what's going on.

There was a fair amount of blocking, grumbling, and rule consultation in this game. Phil made a critical move right near the end where he joined two of his land segments with a pampas (or quasi-pampas) tile. Way to win your first game!

Other notes: Dave was touching nearly every conceivable market, and Todd hogged a body of water all to himself. I had two substantial land masses but couldn't connect them because Dave blocked me.

Phil 138
Dave 128
Todd 121
Christy 120

P.S. Andrew, we still have to play Kingdom Builder one of these days!

We had about an hour left and 7 players, so like any board gamers would, people immediately started pondering a 4/3 split. But I said NO, let's all play together and be dwarves who stab each other in the back! (7p is the sweet spot for Saboteur and it was the end of the day, so it was the perfect opportunity.)

The saboteurs won 2 out of 3 rounds, and certain people *cough* *Todd, Andrew* sab-bed more than others. Harrumph.

Another one not on the list...I think Andrew played against Patrick for most of a game (?) and then the Olmsteads had to leave. Andrew tweeted that he had 42 points. I guess we know where the geeklist stands in relation to Twitter... shake
