Today we celebrate Travis' birthday game (his birthday night was earlier, but today we play his game of choice). It was also the first game day that was warm enough that air conditioning kicked in.

We welcome back Mitch who we haven't seen in a while. Don't be a stranger Mitch!

Thanks to everyone who brought food – it was well received.

As per usual the games listed are not in the order they were played. They are probably not even in the order they were finished.

Our game events are usually in order. To see the order our weekly game nights and game days are scheduled check out our meetup page here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

Definitely not the first game to start, but quite likely the first to finish. The game has achieved some popularity in the group.

Maggie Win
Nancy Lyn not so much a win

We call this “the game where no one similes”. We were actually pretty happy even after the first few disasters. Doug had to get rid of 4 people in the last month (= 8vp)

Not Travis' birthday game

The first game to start. Janelle bought/brought this game in order to learn how to play. Travis did some teaching as well as Brian N.

Looking at the final boards it was easy to see Amy did well – 4 repelled ships and mostly full islands.

Janelle's and César's first play of this game.

Amy 54
Brian N 46 (Segundo)
Janelle 42
César 37

Before Rick or Mike screams in agony – note that we played with the “SOS” variant, which changes scoring significantly. This ameliorates the run away leader issue.

Doug was was obviously doing well. We called earning the 5VP chip a “Doug”. As in “Can you turn in a single for a Doug?).

I had trouble rolling “?”s. I also messed up one turn and left too many dice behind my screen.

“Das Boot” (Dice boot) gets the MVP award

Some folks went for a walk. To kill time before they returned we played this game day tradition. Travis is somewhat played out on this, but did agree to play.
Brian N thinks Great Wall A is too powerful (build in any order –
8 coins for 2 wood, Build from discard pile, 2 military, wild card science)

Neal claims I misinformed him on how spying works (it is the number of buildings you can use, not the number of workers). I am pretty sure I did not.
