At first it looked like we might be playing a bunch of two player games, then three player but before long our numbers swelled to seven and this, the fourth game night of the La Crosse Board Game Group, was another fun and enjoyable evening of games!

Peaberry's coffee house once again provided a warm and comfortable venue on a very cold night. Our gamers included Jeff and Jacquelene, present at out first game night back in December, returning for more, Meghan and Adam who joined the group for the first timem and regulars Brian, John, and Rick. Six games were played.

Next game night: Thursday January 31, Peaberry's 6:30-10:00

At first we were just three. This game fit the bill. This is the first race game for the La Crosse Board Game Group. John brought this game which was new to Brian and Rick. Not too tough to pick this one up, obviously, as the final finish indicates.

1st: Brian
2nd: Rick
3rd: John

Meghan, Adam, Jacquelene, and Jeff all arrived while Mississippi Queen was being played. With seven players we broke into two groups. Jacquelene wanted to play Zooloretto and it seemed like a good game for our new members so off we went. Why did Jacquelene want to play Zooloretto again? Because it's fun, of course!

Scores:
Jacquelene 29
Adam 24
Rick 21
Meghan 15

Brian had been hoping for a game of Settlers for some time. He got his chance in a very competitive and tense game with Jeff and John. This game was as close as can be and anybody's to win right until the end.

Score:
Jeff 10
John 9
Brian 9

The Zooloretto game finished before Settlers. Meghan and Adam had to leave so Jacquelene and Rick filled the time with a basic game of Ace of Aces. Which pilot was the new one and which has played many games. Well just don't use the score to figure that one out!!!

Score:
Jacquelene 6 (and the kill)
Rick 0

We had about 25 minutes left until the coffee shop closed. We needed a quick filler. Nothing quite says "quick filler" like No Thanks. We were able to complete 2 games.

A side note...The first No Thanks game marked Jacquelene's first loss at Game Night--a very impressive string ended. The second No Thanks game marked the first win for Rick at Game Night--well, you get the idea.... Oh, Brian won the first game.

Game one:
Brian 12
Rick 18
Jeff 36
Jacquelene 48
John 62

Game two:
Rick 10
Jacquelene 14
Brian 19
John 24
Jeff 33
