There is a tradition in the game group that on the night (or day) nearest your birthday you get to pick a game to be played. There hasn't been a time when the game picked was so unpopular that it was played solo . There is another tradition that for whatever reason (maybe you are waiting for a new game, or the player count isn't right) that you can delay your birthday choice. There is no formal statue of limitations.

Tonight was my birthday night (well, my birthday was Monday) but I decided to delay my choice. More on that in the list.

Tonight Derek went to get a drink at River City Hobbies and came back with some extra gamers.

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

We had a new person sign up but was not there at the start. Decided to have short game just in case they showed up. I later learned they did update their RSVP to "no".

First play for new Zack and Derek. New Zack rocked is private goal and did well in the public ones as well.

New Zack/"Jeb" : 65
Brian 55
Derek 41

New Zack remembered he hadn't eaten yet. While he was away we though about what game to play. I also worked on a crossword puzzle that was on my placemat from where I ate dinner.

After he returned I decided that my birthday game (Trajan) wasn't going to fit well. We diced on this shorter game. Thanks to Alex who stayed after 5 tribes was done.

I scored no animals the first time it was scored but got 8VP on the next two times. Plus I got some good VP from squares and money.

First play for New Zack.
Brian 64
Derek 60
New Zack / "Jeb" 50

César literally stole the win from Zack (as in stole some money which is worth VP). Towards the end I believe Carolyn was the only non pirate.

First play for Stephanie I assume.

Carolyn 6
Zack 5 (wins tie) (claims poor die rolling)
César 5
Stephanie 1

Although I am not a big fan of deck builders I was willing to give this a shot. We played on the easier side. Derek's "dash in, grab, dash out" strategy won. Andrew was too greedy and died underground. I never even made it that far (on my final turn I had enough feet to grab an artifact, but not enough to get back. Either way I would end up with zero VP...

Derek 53
New Zack 31
Andrew 0 (died, had 40 VP worth of stuff)
Brian 0 (no artifact, had 22 VP of stuff)
