Today we welcome Dee to her first game event. We had a a good turnout with a large number of games played (27), even though I was in only three of them.

As per usual with game day lists, games are not in the order played and comments are likely minimal for games I did not play.

We meet once a week (with a few exceptions) and have a monthly game day, Our full schedule is available here: https://www.meetup.com/boardgames-495/

César taught this game to Stephanie and they started playing when Dee showed up. He then retaught the game. At least I think that is what happened.

First play for Steph and Dee.'

Mike recently bought this and arranged the pay ahead of time. He made three trips to the hardware store to get some Plexiglas. We think we got the rules right, though we were not sure what should happen when Brian N played #52 “Lawyer”, picked produce, and rolled a 1. Here is the info for the FAQ on card #8 (which I did not find until after the game was over)

The divesting player chooses who (among the players who legally can receive them) gets which territories. Rule 8.326. The designated recipient may accept or decline. If accepted, the recipient chooses whether the territory is a new or established presence. Rule 8.326. If all players decline, or no player can legally accept a territory, it is left vacant. Rule 8.326. Cities do not affect the number of products controlled; territories that produce two of the same product (Central America and Middle East) do. (Note: use the same divesting procedure for Lawyer #52).

Mark and Mike started off well. I was low on VP but pretty good on profit in the mid game. In the penultimate turn I was at 27 points so of course I had a target on my back. I had $105 and one destiny card that game me a discount on computers ($110, 3VP). (and 4/5 spots on e-commerce – 3 VP and needs computers) Mike played a destiny card and I thought I was sunk but he also(?) played a card that gave discounts. Had Mike rolled a 5 or 6 on on 5 rolls for e-commerce I would have ended up in last. He didn't and I did.

I believe this is my first win on a La Crosse game event since July 20 (I've won some games online and elsewhere).

First play for Alex S

Brian 33
Alex S 32 (wins money tiebreaker)

Mike 29 (claims teaching, not mention a bad final die roll)

Mark brought this last game day but it had been so long since we played we decided to skip it and try again after Mike relearned the rules. I was eager to play again and thought I was doing good even if Mike built the Castle one turn before I could.

We played the Ireland side.

Lower scores are better

Steve -4
