A post PlatteCon geeklist. I did pick up a couple of games (Pulsar 2849 and Railroad Revolution), but for various reasons I was not quite ready to teach them (one major reason is I haven't unboxed them yet -- though I have watched videos). Luckily the pressure was off as another newish game got played.

We play games both old and new at our events. Check out our schedule here: http://www.boardgames.meetup.com/495/

Mark got this a while ago and tonight it hit the table. Mike watched at least one video and I could have as well. The only rule we know we got wrong as multiple people can be on the same spot. This makes a difference if there are multiple tiles on a spot (which rarely happened) or on the barrel spaces. My major mistake was waiting too long to use the scoring disks. Had I got just one more I could have:
Claimed the 3 card barrel (plus got the benefit of that card)
Claimed "all colors scored" barrel (plus the benefit of scoring that color)
Claimed the "brewmaster in scoring position" barrel

César 35 (LOTS of barrels)
Mark 24
Mike 11
Brian 8 (resources at 3, 2x brewmaster plus one 2pt barrel)

"Zack teaches all of us how to get our butt kicked"
