Matt J could not hydrate further. Matt R was not playing so lava was unnecessary.

Kickstarter from last year in which players seek to connect machines efficiently. Beth earned the most bubble points, but Matt’s last machine earned four for him.

Classic version

Matt J won, Mark and Matt R also played.

“Mark taught. Matt J scored double digits in four categories. Matt R didn’t like going last, but didn’t grab start player. Matt R had excess energy most of the game. Mark maxed out public buildings. Matt R almost maxed out harbors.”

The small game with the large footprint. “Matt had a 5/6 chance of winning the game with his final card.”

Vann acquired the Collectors Edition from Kickstarter which includes the larger map, metal coins, sculpted mechs, and awesome resources. I was the first to achieve a star and the player who ended the game by achieving his sixth. I was the least popular and in this war game it matters, so the people did not love me and I was second. Jon achieved five stars and as popular as Vann. Jon is also the only player to complete his objective. Our game only had four battles. I reached the factory first, which allowed me first crack at the new action space cards. Each of us stated we would play again, and I am glad someone in the group owns, and a regular at that.

No Slot Machine because we felt the need, the need for speed. Another “short” game which allowed one gamer to play with his phone for a half hour. Vann failed his Perception roll so I failed my Bribery attempt.

Tony and I refused to “play ball” which allowed Beth to control two rounds. I failed to buy art in two rounds which isn’t the best way to make money. No one got a Gitter.

Art: Kryptonomicon, Taka Taka, Despair of Humanity, The King in Yellow, Death of my Wife and Confidant

Beth and Mark were the worst clue givers for opposite reasons. Jon’s clues were the cleverest. Matt’s clues brought us closer to the “psychology of the individual” Tony’s clues stumped Mark and I, and my clues were sometimes obscure, and then too easy as I overcompensated.
