No fooling – we had game day on April 1. The church was unavailable on the 8th and the 15th is the day before Easter. I suppose we could have gone for the 22rd, but that seemed too long to wait. We had 20 RSVPs (including Wes!) though I am not 100% sure all showed up. We did have a bunch of extra folks show up though so I'm guessing we had 25 at the peak.

We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495

As usual, games are not in order played and games I did not witness will have minimal comments (unless some were written down)

We had 5 show up near the start. When it looked like no one else was going to show up early we decided to start a 5 player game.

First play for Jacob. César complained about hos draws, and he did do worse than usual, but mine were also not good (though it was more my strategy that doomed me)

coins + goods + (multiplier * stuff) = total [stuff = houses + citizens]
Jacob 44 + 33 + (4 * 5) = 97
Mark 11 + 42 + (6 * 7) = 95
Mike 20 + 23 + (5 * 10) = 93
César 37 + 14 + (5 * 7) = 86
Brian 45 + 12 + (4 * 5) = 77

I won this during Mark's birthday raffle last month, and wanted to give it a try. My low pollution strategy worked out, even though I was desperate for energy for much of the game. Mike though the last player was at a disadvantage because he got less turns, but there are 36 rounds in the game: 5 rounds for 1970,80,90,2000,10,20 and 6 rounds for 2030 so there will be equal number of turns for 2-4 players (or hypothetically, 6)

First play for all

We needed a short game and I finally decided on this. Mark went to play Blood Rage but we snagged Barb into playing.

Coins and Medals + set points = total

Brian 37 + 35 = 72
Mike 49 + 15 = 64
Barb 33 + 22 = 55

Mike claims I won a free ride on the Ferris Wheel
