Ok, so as I was typing the title of this geeklist I found something funny. When the auto-complete brought up the older geeklist titles, I found that I had accidentally dated the other two February lists 2007. So, even when I write the lists on time, my inner desire to procrastinate makes me sabotage my own work, and I make it appear that I'm over a year late.

Dave K. and I had planned this one last week. Though we both read the rules beforehand, there was a lot of looking up specific answers. So, though this was the only game we played, we didn't get to finish it. We ended the turn after Scipio came in, and I (Rome) pretty much decimated the entire Carthaginian army in one final battle. However, it turns out we missed an important rule, and throughout the game I was receiving more cards than I should have been from Italian allies.

I would give a more detailed account, but I'm working on a session report, so I'll just post a link to that when I'm done.

In an unusually low scoring game, Todd managed to win on the tiebreaker.

Todd 17
Diane 17
Shawn 16

Btw, what is the tiebreaker?

This one I've always been intrigued by, but I've never had the chance to try it.

As my mind was occupied with the defense of the Eternal City, I figured everyone else would be recording their own scores. One table did, but the other didn't. Jeff H. and Max I can let slide as they aren't every-weekers. Dave D. normally would have the 'Stupid Ray' as his alibi, but the scores will show that Dave K. forgot to turn it on this week. But Todd... I'm just very disappointed in you. You've even been an alternate geeklister when I wasn't there! I propose that as your punishment you are forced to play only new games for one month.

So say we all.

As far as the game, Kingsburg remains popular at the group. However, I think it is preventing people from pulling out Yspahan, as they don't want to play another dice game. So, I'll be pushing my beloved Yspahan this Sunday. Of course, Todd won't be allowed to play.

Dave D. 1st
Todd 2nd
Max 2nd
Jeff 4th

Yes, there was a tie for second.

This was one of Max's new StrataMax prototypes. I don't even have finishing order for this one. The players were Todd, Max, Shawn, and Dave D., and Dave won with around 106 points.

P.S. I'm pretty sure this is the least information I've ever included in a geeklist entry. I don't know the name of the game, what its about, or what order people finished in. Pretty much all I can say is: four people played a game.

Thankfully by the time this game ended I was done with my game and able to take down the scores. Crisis averted.

Duffield goes 3 for 3. I've wanted to try this game since it came out, but I always seem to be occupied when it gets played.
