Since both Mike and I were out last week, this was the first game night since August 4.

Tonight we welcome Kathryn who showed up for her first second game night. She showed up last week when we were not meeting I announced it prominently within the group. but that doesn't help new members...

We also welcome Caleb who may have been here before.

Tonight there was an issue getting into the circuit breaker room so we did not have lights in half of the room. We made do with what we had.

Come dark or leaky roofs we meet most weeks (Kathryn coming in one of the 3 or so we skip each year) and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

We played with the borders but NOT with the 5 star expansion.

All the goals were the least (reputation, income, grey tiles, multipliers). I got none of them nor my personal goal (most tiles). I should have given up on least reputation and tried to make it up by getting enough population...

Nancy got two goal plus here personal one.

I like this game but am obviously rusty...

First play for Kathryn.

The scoring markers were removed, so these scores are approximate. The order is correct.

Alex 93
Zack 91
Caleb 84
