Birthday Bash Volume Two went off after a slight delay (someone forgot to bring the Birthday game of choice, Puerto Rico). Thanks to Eric for running home to bring his copy. Five faced off on the isle of Puerto Rico and another five met up for Notre Dame. After that half of the ten faced off for some flickin' racin'!

Notre Dame was a first time play for the game group. Only Amy and Travis had played this previously, but that was one year ago. We tackled the game nonetheless and some were more rat-bitten than others while some were more rat-averse than others. Whom do the rats favor?

5th - 23 Travis
4th - 34 Marie
3rd - 37 Eric
2nd - 39 Amy
1st - 39 Mark (wins coin tie-breaker 2-0)

We don't know which game Travis was playing, and Marie's rat-avoidance strategy wasn't that far from succeeding. Mark got plagued by the rats early and accepted the plague every round thereafter.

After the two main games finished (at nearly the same time) half the group headed out while five remained for a quick flickin' game of Pitchcar Mini. Who would claim the title of "Flick"? (frozen flag pole not included.)

5th - Travis (who likes to play the game but certainly needs more practice laps.)
4th - Brian
3rd - Mike
2nd - Mandi
1st - John a.k.a. "Flick"
