It's a little late, but hopefully you can curl up in a warm blanket as you peruse this list.
As always it is fun getting to play games with all of you!

It took a while to figure out the first game, but Empire Builder was the first game for Dec 1st. We really should have done the fast play rules as it turned into a five hour game and that was with a $100 goal that was put into effect a half hour before a winner was declared. I'll leave more comments as a comment....

The second game was Candamir: the First Settlers. It's a fun game, but some would probably call it a group played game of solitaire/memory game.

A couple gamers were still itching to get a game which involved killing other gamers pieces. So Age of Empires III was the 3rd game played.

TransEuropa w/ Vexation was the last game of the night. I believe Eugene was the winner as always (since he's played it the most as the game's owner).

The first game on Dec 8th for the people that weren't late was Ticket to Ride: Switzerland. Little did we expect how much the snow that night would make it seem like Switzerland.

An interesting game, still haven't gotten to play any of the alternate characters. It was amazing how many times the Architect didn't make the possible characters for our game.

After we went from 5 to 4, Dave requested Sunken City. A light game of construction and movement. Dave commented it's been a while since he's actually moved a game piece in a boardgame.
In Sunken City we each play explorers that can raise the ruins of a wiped out city in a Lake or Lagoon ... personally I thought it was supposed to be Atlantis. Then based on a played card from the player's deck move about collecting treasures while hoping Neptune isn't moved past where you are causing you to lose your booty.

The final game of the night was Carcassone (basic ed.) with just the builders from Builders & Traders plus the cathedral pieces. It was a close game until Eugene was able to to complete his mega city. I believe the end order was Eugene, Llad, and finally me.

On Dec 9th, James, John, Matt and I played two games of Heroscape.

A fun but (as I discovered) an expensive game. We also had the volcano and ice & snow terrain, as well as some swamp terrain from Matt's Swarm of the Marro. Looking forward to getting to play it again, except possibly do a different scenario than just "Last man standing".

We started out Dec. 15th with Saint Petersburg, with Llad, Todd, and Steve. An interesting game about building a Russian work force that give the player the bulk of his income with buildings and aristocrats that get most of the victory points. What comes up is the luck of the cards and the order is based on development tokens.

Once Eugene arrived, the next game was Notre Dame. I thought I had done well getting victory points but "Silent Killer" Eugene won the game. This has become a game that a few people in our group has put into their collections.

While we were waiting for the main party attendees to arrive, we played Apples to Apples. Llad, who had said "people never pick my card" won. A few funny combinations came out of that game ... can't remember them now though....

Once everyone had arrived, We split into two groups. The big table got Eugene, Todd, Steve, Patty, and Chandra for Carcassonne. Played the basic set with builders to help it go faster. It looked like Patty was going to win until Eugene's farmers helped him pull into 1st.

After Carcassonne, the next game for Eugene, Patty, Todd, and Steve was Trans America. I flew off the tracks in the third round when Eugene surprised everyone and finished connecting his cities very quickly.

Since the games didn't seem to end at the same time, the Ticket to Ride group moved on to a game of Dominoes. I think they played with a special rule set ... don't know which one.

The final game of the night was Shadows over Camelot played by Adam, Eugene, Llad, Patty, Steve, and Vicky. Patty had to leave early, so she did what she could then "fell on her sword" to prevent having to draw a black card or place a catapult.
Llad for the most part hid that he was the traitor for the first couple of turns, then it was sort of obvious that he was the traitor and then he put a 'one' fight card on the dragon which basically was like putting a sign around his neck saying "Traitor!". In the end the good knights exposed the traitor just before losing the black knight quest, but winning the game with 8 white swords.

Eugene, Todd, and myself got together and played Puerto Rico with the expansion. No one went for the forests, but the libraries proved to be very powerful. Making it cheaper to build, better to sell, better to ship, etc.

This game by the same makers of Catan hit the table as the second and last game. It was a different game with only three players.
