Tonight we welcome back Nancy Classic, who we have not seen in a while.
We also welcome back Mandi & Steve who we have not seen in a possibly even longer time (at least in gaming -- they sometimes pop in to say "hi" after music practice)

You are allowed to attend more than 2 of our events in a year -- we meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our full schedule is available here: https://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

Doug suggested this, as it is one of his favorite worker placement games.

Doug and I had similar points on the final round, but he had 2 end game bonuses plus the 40 point engineer bonus. Zack correctly identified this as a game that rewards experience.

First play for Zack
First play with the expansion for Doug

Doug 407

I think Nancy had played this a long time ago. In any case, she claimed she missed one rule in the first round.
First play for Mandi & Steve?

Mandi 89 (tied on resources)
César 89
Steve 85
Nancy Classic 83

We played with Halflings, Dwarves, Minotaurs, Centaurs, Elves, and Orcs.
First play for Mandi and Steve
Doug got quite a few 6 card sets.

With Centaurs and Elves there were fewer face up cards to grab.

I now know how to come in last with two different sets races (Halflings, Dwarves, and Minotaurs were also in my first play)

Doug 126
Steve 104
Mandi 99
Brian 85
