Please post anything you played (or submit a Game Record Sheet at Game Night & I will enter them - rule is Winner Writes It Up) - so we can all enjoy:

* a record of our group's activity, interests, and shared fun & laughs,
* a place to banter about the pros/cons, or likes/dislikes, of the games we play. This can be helpful to people on the fence about buying, and even to the designers & publishers who follow their games on the Geek.
* re-capping your play experience, narrate, After Action reports, and even a little trash-talking makes playing these games more than just an activity, they become genuine experiences. And isn't that what living life is for?

Please Thumb or tip the games you like (and the Header. please!), Thumbs are a fun way to tabulate games' popularity and to see how many passed through here!

Played 2 games, with Zack as the Mayor for the first game where the Villagers won with a nice guess of Cthullu by Steve after a good hint by Rob the Seer.

Chris was the Mayor in the 2nd game. It was a tough word and we the Villagers were running out of time and Zack guessed Honk at the last second. Scott the Werewolf guessed that Zack was the Seer so Scott won and the Villagers lost.

This is a neat little game with similarities to Carcassonne in that you lay tiles that have placement rules, but this one has a story to it with encounter cards and types of pieces with dice pools that you put down instead of meeples. You claim treasures from the completed rooms or hallways, but it's never uncontested, for you are either going to split it with someone else in that room/hall after rolling dice pools to see who gets more swords and coins, or if there is no other player in the completed area, the player to your left draws an encounter card that has a neat little flavor text and 2 options for you do choose from but don't know the results until you choose. You then will roll for dice to try to pass a test to get the treasures or you may have the option to leave and not risk losing a character.

Fun game with a nice twist on the tile laying.

Ok. This one is confusing. Scoresheet says "Caravan", which there are a dozen games in BGG called that. One says "aka Century: Spice Road", so did THAT get two plays this week...?
Also, who is "Mary"? - I don't remember Mary there that night. Lynne was only gal that I recall, i'll assume it was her.

64 - MIKE McR
63 - Rob B
56 - Dale
52 - Mary/Lynne
52 - Rick B

Adam requested Ticket to Ride (he seems to recall beating me at some point... hahaha, I know, right?) and Rob was feeling stock-y, so Pennsylvania it is. I still haven't quite gotten this one down, too many ways to score.

194 - MIKE McR greentrain
160 - Rob T blacktrain
142 - Scott yellowtrain
133 - Steve H redtrain
124 - Adam/Dale bluetrain (Adam had to bail halfway, Dale filled his seat)

Mike steamrolled us, beating us in all 3 scoring areas (points from builds, destination tix, AND srock shares). Ugh. Didn't help that I talked him into drawing more Dest Tix on his last turn and he drew 26 free points. yuk

A lot like Concept, but using clear cards that the Clue-Giver can manipulate to lead the Guessers to the Magic Word.

We didn't really keep score, more a fun activity than game.

"Ice Age" was a tough one.

Tip: Have a rule that says no guessing out loud until at least one card/clue has been played. (Our guys were shouting out random things as soon as the Category was announced. Really annoying and NOT fun...)
Otherwise, good fun game!
