Tonight Wes requested a game which lasted most of the night. The other games were mostly (but not entirely) fillers.

It also the last night before two birthday weeks in a row. Travis is next week and I am claiming the week after.

We always celebrated gaming at our events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

César offered to teach this game to Amy and I. Then Wes joined in but dropped out to start Game of Thrones. Then Travis Joined in.

I managed to build the best structure (3VP) each round, but would not have won had I not used 4 twos the last round.

Amy had some special issues, but did follow her blueprint each round, and did enjoy the game.

César 10

César was interested in learning this.
I know downstairs rooms were in demand, or at least talked about.

I was looking for something shorter and finally settled on this.
First play for Doug.

I was one green shy of getting one more VP, and 3 green shy of winning.
Doug went form 9 to 15 in two turns

Doug 15
Brian 13 (claims teaching)

Neal taught this to Doug and myself. I started out strong before I hit a plateau but finally won. Note that 40 points triggers the end.

Brian 47
Doug 39
Neal 10 (had horrible rolls)

Game 2: Doug spent ~10 turns trying to get the last 2 for 15 VP. Neal took cards when I was one die away several times.

Doug 39
Neal 30

This is the game Wes requested. He had played recently and knew the rules. It had been a while for many (first for Melissa?)
The game went a bit past closing time, but I did not kick them out.

Maggie 4 cities (?) and wins tiebreaker
Wes 4(?)
Will 3 cities(?) and wins tiebreaker
Nancy 3(?)
Melissa less than that
