I invited some folks over to help me take advantage of my temporary bachelorhood as the rest of the family is of on vacation. I thought I would have light turnout as this was the first good weather weekend after what seems like months of rain, but turnout was great and all 5 of my tables were in use at some point.

I was anxious to try this game out. It is pretty solid, but subsequent plays have taught me that you really can't take more than 1 incomplete quest and expect to do well.

Game #1:
Dan - 53
Randy - 49
Scott - 42

Game #2 (One rule we got wrong was I shorted us on face up cards by 1. It must have worked out to my advantage somehow.)
Mark - 61
Jay - 57
Hermes - 32
Travis - 32

This game has some very interesting concepts. I like the action selection and how the craftsmen work. The end game is a race, so you can't waste too many turns.

Mark - W
Nathan - 2nd
Jacob - 3rd
Randy - 4th

We were looking for something quick while certain jerks to be named later finished up their game of Core Worlds. This game plays pretty well as a two-player game.

Game #1
Mark - 142
Nathan - 88

Mark - 115
Nathan - 103

Hey, it is the aforementioned jerks, playing one of my favorite games without me. Hermes did ask me if 39 was a good score. I said it wasn't if they were playing with the Galactic Orders exp, which they were. Shows you what I know.

Hermes - 39
Paul/Travis - 37
Steve - 34

Still one of my favorite 5-player games. Just before both scoring rounds ended, I had to pay handsomely for the only spot that would score me one of my bonus cards, which hurt.

Nathan - 38
Paul - 36
Hermes - 35
Mark - 34
Steve - 30

We played with the coaches during the world series. I had only one that proved to be somewhat useful, and the good defensive bonus he provided was overrun by Hermes's coach that added a hit to all his guys (I think maybe just naturals). I still managed to squeak out a victory.

Mark over Hermes in world series 5 to 4.
Loser's bracket - Paul vs David.
