I like showing Glastonbury to people, because so few people have seen it, and everybody likes it (or pretends to like it).

Wanda 30
Eric V 30
Austin 28
Paul 41

Everybody but me was new to the game. Too many of those single 3-point and 4-point cards doomed the noobs. Until recently, Philibertnet in France had the French edition in stock. They are sold out now and I don't think you can get the game anywhere, which is too bad, because I think it is great. 10/10 from me.

Two games of this were played. The first was a two-player game.

Bryan win
Ashley

We left it set up and went back to it a few hours later with four players.

Ashley win 6/6
Paul 5/6
Justin 4/6
Bryan 4/6

Ashley won and rolled one die the whole game. I don't think I have ever seen that in a 4p Deluxe game. Well done. 10/10 if played 5/2/5 or 6/3/6 or something like that, and if players play quickly, which they did. 4/10 if the game is slow and played with all cards available.

It was time for some heavier games after getting the light stuff out of the way.

with all expansions and promos. Three new players and me, who was not new to the base game but was definitely new to the expansions.

Paul 121
Ashley 110
Bryan 102
Justin 100

Very good showings by the new players. Ashley had me beat, but had too many blame tokens (-15 points). I will never play vanilla Midgard ever again if there is a choice. The expansions are good fun. 7/10, but probably a 10/10 once I play them some more.

Looks like the score here was 11 to 9. I am assuming Eric won.

All three previous games finished about the same time, and it was about time to eat. To kill some time we played a game of this.

Wanda win
Paul, Austin, Eric V, Justin, Eric S lose

The game ended quickly, so in the end, we all won.

Six! players jumped into what looked like a fun game of Sheriff.

Austin two hundred and something
Wanda less than that
Eric V less than that
Eric S less than that
Justin less than that
Heather less than that

Scores were not recorded, just a winner. I overheard Austin's score as I finished my game of Las Vegas, so I am able to at least add that little bit to the report.

We needed a quick game while waiting for the Sheriff game to finish. We played with all the money cards from the expansion, plus the slot machine, the large dice, and the 40k per casino minimum suggested for a 3p game.

Ashley 630
Bryan 610
Paul less than 610 (I think it was 430, I did not feel like writing it down at the time)

Bryan should have won, but he placed his next-to-last die in the last round to take 80k from me and award it to Ashley. I was going to lose anyway, so I mildly chuckled, internally. Boulevard elevates Las Vegas into a great game. I forget if I give it a 7 or 10. If played quickly, it's a 7+ at least. If people are deliberate, yawn, it's a 7-. It's a shame this is so hard to find in the USA, or if you do find it, it's expensive.

At this point I just wanted to play something new, there were 5 of us remaining, I saw Happy Pigs and Iello on the box, knew nothing about it, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt. I'm glad I did. This is a great game.

Paul 161
Bryan 260
Ashley 241
Wanda 212
Justin 161

All were new except Justin, who owned and taught the game. There are 16 "turns", and after the first 5 or 6, I recognized at least two or three mistakes I had already made that were going to make it so I couldn't win, but I soldiered on and had a lot of fun exploring the game space. Pretty sure this is a 10/10, and another game or two of it will determine if that is true or not. Thanks to Justin for bringing it, and a ton of other games.
