This time out, we dared the Competitive Mode. (and I forgot to take out the Double Diamond nasty cards. Wait for it...)

26 - BRUCE (Red Mountaineer)
24 - Steve H (Green Mountaineer) R.I.P.
23 - Teddy O (Purple Mountaineer) He thought he had it won!
0 - Scott (hapless Yellow Climber / Mad Bomber) R.I.P.

What a close score! (well, three of them, anyway...) shake

"This One Time, At Base Camp"

I decided it would be prudent to get ahead, so I spent my Rope to get speed (7). flew up 3 tiles, got within one tile of Halfway Camp. Then I rolled an Event and drew the Card. MST3K fans will appreciate that we didn't have to wait like Jonah and the Bots. First Turn of game, AVALANCHE. Umm. So, that went well.

Our 2nd player drew Snow Slide, so yeah, great start...

Anyway, Steve summitted first, followed on same turn by Teddy, who then pops on his Wing Suit and soars down to Base Camp (bypassing Halfway Camp), hoping he scored enough points and kept his Karma high enough t o win. Nope.

Steve & Bruce began their descent, while I fumbled around the edge of the board, eventually giving up. Since I had the Bomb since the beginning, I thought, "Sure, this'll be fun!" Cutting back to the middle just below Halfway Camp, I intercepted Steve and let loose the mayhem! Steve's reaction? To loudly protest, "WHO brings a BOMB onto a mountian!?!?" (repeatedly. Snicker.) Sadly, the bomb blast didn't quite kill him (close), or me for that matter. But the Mountain is a fickle creature (Nature IS a Mother...) and the next player's charming die roll starved Steve & I both to death. Ahhh, good times. Good times.
laugh

So the guy who lags behind, arrives at each checkpoint 3rd, but avoids the Mad Bomber On The Mountain, Bruce wins it.
shake

Moral of the Story:
Don't skip Halfway Camp. And don't bring a Bomb to an Ice Pick Fight.
devil

We love this game.

This game looks so fun. I keep missing it...
(And it's designed by 2016 GenCon Crokinole Champion Paul Dennen, which I only just discovered last week!)

They didn't record scores, so hopefully they'll chime in about the play.

This one?

It's a puzzle game, assembling different shaped tiles as a group, while trying to complete certain objectives/patterns in your hand (unique to your version of the Mad Thinker). It also has some common/pool objectives for all, scoring whoever gets them done first. Pretty fun.

31 - TEDDY O (Globe-Trotting Einstein)
28 - Brian M (Young Einstein)
23 - Steve H (Prime Einstein)
19 - Scott H (Wise Einstein)

Changed out the pegs on 2 boards to steel screws w rubber tubing.
Feedback was good, plays VERY "lively" and fast.
Not sure I like it, tho, the pegs interfere w way more shots and makes a ricochet game pretty dicey...

100 - STEVE H

45 - Teddy O

Zack - The Medic
Stosh - The Redhead (actually a Botanist)
Rob T - H.P. Lovecraft
Jeff O. - Dr. Frankenstein

And as the game goes, we pick up right were we left off (the board was laid out in a different direction than the last time which threw me off a couple of times). We did explore a much larger area than we did the last time we played. However we found 3 different areas of interest that we will explore in the future and we set ourselves up to be as successful as possible to do that. First things first, we went hunting and found tons of food... we didn't have a fire to cook it in... but as luck would have it there just so happened to be a giant raging forest fire right next to the hunting grounds(lmao).

After letting Zack explore first on his own after a while we decided he was no longer allowed to explore because he kept finding all the bad things leading into the new areas... So since all of us were injured in some way we pushed angry Howard into an area swarming with BEES Howard decided he needed a little friend to carry around with him since we all "betrayed" him. Well I decided that I needed to one up him and as soon as we found a grave, I did it. HE'S ALIVE! I created Frankenstein's Monster zombie. If we ever have to, he will be tough to take down... I hope not.

We stumbled upon a giant carnivorous plant and it looked like there was something inside of it, unfortunately we didn't have some sort of musical instrument at the time to lull it to sleep, so I bashed it in and did nothing but get poisoned... thanks game.

So we found and rebuilt a destroyed camp and settled in there for the evening, looking forward to our future adventures Either: In an Underground Tomb, Scaling down a sheer cliff, or balancing across a very unstable stone bridge to (possibly) a temple.


The whimsical adventures of the Victorian Pioneers is to be continued...
