LOTS of dice were rolled. Mostly for tumblin dice, but still, gotta throw them bones. I'd say it was one of the best UCONN nights we've had so far. I always wish we had more time, but being a week night not staying out till all hours is probably a good thing.

Trish and I got there a little early and managed to get in one round of Mr. Jack before more people really started arriving. I played Jack and got totally smashed, thanks to Trish bringing her A game and me bringing somewhere in the neighborhood of Q. I am still currently in love with this game though.

We started out planning to play a 5 players game waiting for others to arrive, but by the time we got going we were up to the full 7. It was a first play for most people, but this is certainly the kind of game where it doesn't matter at all. Not a lot of yelling or super high bidding, but a fun round none the less.

Having played Settlers easily over 100 times, yet having never played Seafarers, when it was mentioned that Sarah had brought this I was super stoked to try it out. We playing on a partly preset up map, the islands were premade, the main "Catan" was a standard random setup, and of course, I managed to set my first buildings totally inland. Eventually I made it out to sea though and I really enjoyed the extra elements that having the larger area brought into play. Sheep being more valuable is also a nice change. This was already something we were interested in getting, and now I'd say its on the for-sure list. I'm sure it helped that I shredded the competition with my massive sheep farm, at one point I had 16 sheep in my hand! Crazy.

Trish, Kristen and Jill pulled this out while the rest of us played Seafarers. Trish is a really good player on the USA map but word is she got trashed by the first time player Kristen this time.

This monster of fun came out when Steve arrived and did not disappoint. I didn't get to play in any "real" games of it that went on, but I did screw around with it for a bit here and there and am totally into it.

One of my favorite games got pulled out and we rocked a 6 player. I rarely play with that many and forget how different the game feels. Its a lot more hectic as the game ends a lot sooner than you'd think so every little bit counts. When we play with 3 or 4 a winning score is usually in the 30s or 40s, this game I barely won with 13.

I didn't play, but I wish I had. I've only played once so far and I'm still honeymoon in love.

I've seen this come out a few times and I'm always intrigued, yet I've never been available when it was played. I love the idea of the Icehouse pyramids and I think someday we're going to have to get a good set of them.

Most of us ended the night with this one. This was only my 4th play and it was a first for everyone else but Trish, who'd only played it once before. It was a really close game all the way through and I don't think anyone knew who was in the lead, or if anyone really was. I took a gamble on the black pearl and called a second market phase near the end to trade away my colored gems for silver and gold. It ended up paying off as I squeeked out another victory.

I don't really know anything about this game. Alan and Steve played and to be honest, I'm shocked that Alan went for this over RFTG for his space colonization needs.

Steve & I played through the tutorial before we ran out of time. This looks like a rather fun 2-player game. The artwork is fantastic and the quality is very nice. Very Flash Gordon (to steal a line from Steve). I like how the mechanics work. Each player has a spaceship that they are using to explore the galaxy. You're trying to score VPs and there a few different ways to do that, though many involve purchasing/trading goods and producing them (from modules or colony planets). You have to be careful, though, since you may run into space pirates! Spaceships, space pirates and resources - what more could you ask for?
