Tonight we welcome back Lance and Colleen, bot of which we have not seen in a while (especially Lance).

I actually opened up early tonight to give more time to get a longer game in. Turns out it wasn't needed (more on that later). Poor Lance had to wait for others to show up.

I occasionally open early and extremely rarely open late to our events. We meet most weeks and gave a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

This is the game I opened up early for. I arrived at 5:45 to set up. We started about 6:10. First play for Mike but he did watch some videos so I did not have to go over everything.
We were playing fast (we finished in less than 3 hours), César sais that is why he did not win.

At least my score improved over my last two games (76 and 69)

Andrew 124
Brian 81
César 81 (no tie breaker)
Mike 75

Had they (Andrew) not drawn the card they did they could have eliminated one villain and had a good chance of winning. But the card they drew meant they lost.

Team that shall not be named: win
Andrew, Melissa, Zack: lose
