Yesterday's turnout was a bit smaller but good for the summer. Max, Chad, Chuck, Siraj, Erin, Roni, Nathan, Mike, Jake, Sabrina, Devon, Elizabeth, Elise, Jason, and Korey attended. Thanks to everyone who brought snacks, beverages, and games to share.

Please add the many titles that I missed to the list. Hope to see you again soon.

We started our day with Dice City, which was new to Chuck and Siraj and only my second play. We had a very close game, and Chuck edged ahead of the rest of the pack by focusing on military cards.

Every time we play Flatline we get a little better at it. We managed to save the vast majority of the patients, but the game still beat us.

An incredibly close game of Clank! resulted in Chad barely finishing ahead of the rest of the players.

Chad's luck went the way of the buffalo in this back-to-back play. Jake placed first in a fairly well distributed spread.

Max and I did a mangled job of teaching Ethnos to the rest of the group. Max won fairly decisively with Elizabeth also doing quite well. Max loves those Halflings. Much to my detriment, Elizabeth and Elise quickly picked up on the importance of Trolls as tie breakers.

We enjoyed a fun 10-player game of Ladies & Gentleman that was new to many of the players. Interestingly, in this play, the Gentleman were all female players except for me, while the Ladies, including the German strumpet, were all played by men.

Nathan was the big winner when Clank! was played for the third time. He had a great tactic of circling around to collect all three monkey masks and also picked up a nice artifact.

We played the standalone expansion for Dead of Winter for the first time with the improvements expansion. It was Jason and Korey's first time playing DoW, and they caught on quickly and seemed to enjoy the game and its mechanics. Jake picked up two great guns early in the game, which helped out immensely. I discovered that to give five players four character cards from which they choose their two requires using every character including the chimp and guarantees that the woman who is good at making improvements to the colony will be available for selection. This means that more characters should have been included if the game is truly going to stand alone along with more scenarios. We won and all completed our secret objectives except for Sabrina, who had a Diet Coke win.
