Blast from the past tonight -- First we welcome back Mike who we have not seen since mid June. We welcome Back Shawn who was an early member but moved away several years ago. He showed up last year (telling me ahead of time), but this time it was a surprise.
We welcome Noah, Kim, and Josh M to their first game night. We also had a surprise appearance by Mark K. It has been a while for Alex S as well.

Receive our welcome(s) at our events. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our schedule is available here: http://www.boardgames.meetup.com/495/

I got this a few weeks ago and am glad it finally hit the table.
Since Shawn had not played the original Brass and it had been a while for Mark, teaching took a while.
Based on the cards I had I went manufactured goods. I really thought Mike was going to win with potteries. I did have at least 4 links out Birmingham in the Rail era (which was 20 VP just for the industries in Birmingham) which was enough for the win.
Thanks everyone for playing.
Shawn liked it even with his suboptimal score. Mike thinks he likes this better than Lancashire. I like the fact that there is stuff to explore (vs Lancashire where a double cotton develop is 95% of the time the best first move)

First play for all (and as mentioned first play of Brass of any sort for Shawn)

Brian 137
Mike 117
Mark 101
Shawn 89 (could be 85)
