Tonight we celebrate Carolyn's birthday. She brought cupcakes and insisted we eat them.

But the big surprise tonight is that Wes showed up wow and he RSVPed! wowwowwow

Some people chose games quickly, some took a while, and some just watched.

We do our best to get you into a game you will enjoy 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

This game filled quickly. Players told me it would have finished sooner if it was for Wes.

Tipi + VP tiles + sets = total
Nancy Lyn 8 + 12 + 32 = 52
Wes(!) 4 + 13 + 32 = 49
César 12 + 27 + 0 = 39
Maggie 0 + 23 + 8 = 31

Nancy offered to teach this: Neal and I were willing to learn.

Since she usually plays on Yucata, there was some minor rule checking.
My pirate card was quite handy -- being able to dismiss low value ships was nice.

Brian 12
Neal 10
Nancy Classic 9 (claims teaching)

(there are a lot of games named Samurai -- I know this is the right one).

First play for all but Nancy Lyn
I skimmed the rules and noticed tokens go behind your screen (except for 2 player)

César -- Rice winner -- overall winner
Nancy Lyn - Temple winner -- second overall
Wes - Buddha winner -- third
Doug - no wins - fourth

We played this while waiting for other games to finish.
We had 5 -- I was a guesser for both teams.
Though Nancy won, Alex deserves kudos for "Words - 2" that indicated "Shakespeare" and "Root" (which we got)

Nancy (spymaster), Nathan , Brian - win
Alex (spymaster), Carolyn, Brian - lose
