We had a good turnout for this Game Day and Swap Meet. When I arrived at 3:30 p.m, I think there were about 20 people there. Unfortunately, I arrived late because I spent most of the day putting up lights. Further, I had to leave early to attend a fundraising event at my wife's work, Project R.I.D.E.

I'll get the list started with what I played and leave it to others to add on.

Afshin, Michael and I played this game. I waited to get on the board, letting Afshin get greatest work at least three turns. However, I was able to complete five works, get greatest work on the last two turns, and complete a prestige card for 8 points to win the game.

After WOT, John graciously went on a 15 min. round trip so we could play his Collectors Edition of Caylus.

Those that braved the cold and burned the midnight oil got in one last game of Thebes.

OK, one time Randy Beaman had to take baths with his brother. So one time his little brother took a potty in the bathtub .....and now Randy Beaman gets to take showers alone. 'K, bye.

I believe it was David M who taught three others (Eric, Derrick, and one other) this nice little abstract gem.

I'm not familair with either Rumis or Pueblo, but after getting a good look at Pueblo, it looks like a fun game. One of those - Easy to learn, but hard to master sort of abstracts.

After Pueblo, Dave was kind enough to offer us another tutoring. Derrick, myself and one other tried out this one from ZMan games.

I really got into the decision tree of this resource management game. A key parameter to winning is buying building cards, and I wasn't able to get one until the fourth round (people kept taking the one I was saving for right from underneath my nose). I am definitely looking to get another attempt at this.

Another great filler! I really like the mechanic in this one. Dave must also like it as this game is always in his pile.
