Max 97 (winner), Chris 91, Chad 69

We started off the day with a title that is newly published as well as new to Max. The long length of time that it took for me to draw boots cards to finally make it to an escape pod allowed both Chad and Max to make it to the cargo bay and permitted Max to win with his money making machine.

This fresh off the press title plays long but was also new to most of the players.

Hunters: Chris (Gregor - alive), Mike (Ellen - dead), Chuck (Fu-Ka dead) winners
Shadows: Max (Valkyrie - dead), Chad (Wight - dead), Nick (Ultrasoul - dead)
Neutrals: Sabrina (Agnes - dead), Jake (David - alive)

A great, extremely close game of Shadow Hunters saw the Hunters barely win with three Shadows, a Neutral, and two Hunters dead and the third Hunter heavily wounded. Jake turned out to be the kingmaker and helped the good guys win.

We all managed to resolve our preliminary visions. However, in determining the murderer we failed with one clairvoyant (me) choosing the correct suspect and an incorrect one receiving three votes.

We played the Virulent Strain Challenge from On the Brink at the normal difficulty level. We won on the last possible turn with the Outbreak track almost maxed out largely due to the special ability of Elizabeth's character.

Our game of Thebes was quite competitive with different players scoring a lot of points in different areas. I did very well on my archeological digs. Elizabeth scored a lot of points by having the most specific knowledge, while Michael managed to get five congress cards.

Our game of TtR Team Asia was one of the closest that I can remember. Max and Chuck scored a lot of points on long routes and earned the 10 point bonus for having the longest continuous route. Michael and I managed to earn the 10 points bonus for the most completed tickets by having 11 compared to J&K's 10 and M&C's seven. Amazingly, Jason and Korey won the game without either bonus.

Chris, Jason, Korey, Chuck, Max - winners

For the first time, we played both a fully cooperative game of The Dead of Winter and used Chuck's Crossroads Cards app (thumbs up!). Our scenario was "We Need More Samples". I thought that it would be almost impossible but we won due to good characters and strategy and a lot of lucky search draws and exposure die rolls.

A new little Japanese card game that Kurt, Erin and Jim were kind enough to suffer a learning game with me. A clever little game that has a bit of an Linko! feel to it with a twist.
