As various people wandered in off the street, we brought out the traditional warmup game SET. No score was kept, although newcomers Lorelei and Erin impressed with their Set-spotting abilities, and Jim disgraced himself once again by failing to have a single one of his Set calls stand up.

Rich, Nate, Jim, and Zontziry retired to the VIP lounge to indulge in a couple hours of Age of Steam. The three men achieved scores of 23, 24, and 25 points, and lost miserably to the mighty Zontziry's awe-inspiring 37 point performance.

I had recently purchased another batch of games, highlighted by Qwirkle, and was successful in my attempts to coerce three other players to join me. Nyck stayed one score ahead of me the entire game, and then pulled away at the very end for a 164 point victory to my 133. Bianca and Lorelei scored 99 and 93 points, respectively.

Table three was all set to begin a game of Louis XIV when some stragglers straggled in, leaving Andy to run a five-player game of Santiago instead. Erin and Leif tied for victory with 84 points, shattering Andy's (72 points) win streak in this game. Rachel (64) and Jonathon (32) rounded out the players.

As Qwirkle finished somewhat before the other two tables, Lorelei was introduced to the awesomeness that is the best game ever, Bongo!. Unfortunately, newly-arrived Kirsten's constant mocking of this game's greatness forced an unnaturally early end to what, by all rights, should have been the highlight of the evening.

After the aborted Bongo! fiasco, table one recovered with a rousing game of Pickomino. In the end, no one could match Sandy's affinity for worms, although Tim, Bianca, Nyck, Lorelei, and Kirsten gave it a worthy effort.

With the last of ths Salmon feed stragglers finally showing up, and with Age of Steam still going strong, the reconfigure saw Paula teach the classic Acquire to an eager fivesome. After a 45-minute score-tabulating phase, it was discovered that Bryan won with $50,700, followed by Paula ($45,000), Lynette ($30,800), Kirsten ($19,600) and Jonathon ($17,100).

Fortunately, we were able to marshal a game of Louis XIV after all, with Leif winning handily over Andy, Tim, and Alan. For the record, Andy's major cheating with the mission card that swaps influence cards probably did not decide the outcome of the game, although Tim is still considering filing a protest with the league office.

With the Age of Steam game finally breaking up, the second major reconfigure saw Kirsten forcibly compelling three others to play this Klaus Teuber effort away from prying eyes in the VIP lounge. Alan, Kirsten, Jim, and Sandy finished in that order.

Tim and Rich were ready for a four-player game of Metropolys, until Paula's head-fake about leaving or not leaving convinced them that a five-player game was required. Tragically, this led to a four-player game of Aquaretto, with Rich's 34 points winning over Tim, Bryan, and Nyck (24, 24, 18, respectively).

The camel-jockeys were left a bit of time, and thus continued with a round of Andy's game Prism. Once again Bianca reigned supreme with 31 points, Z came in second with 20, Andy's shameful performance ended with a mere 19 points, Nate valiantly fought to 16 points, and Lynette rounded out the group with 13 points.

As we waited for the Entdecker: Exploring New Horizons game to finish, half the group opted to loudly jibber-jabber, while the other, more serious half elected to engage in a fierce battle of Cheeky Monkey. Despite Tim's total dominance of Monkeys, Bryan stole the victory over Andy, Nyck, and moral victor Rich, who did indeed end the game in (slightly) positive territory.

Tim, Nyck, Andy, Nate, Bianca, Jim, Zontziry, Bryan, and Rich whiled away the time with a single nine-person round of 6 nimmt!, in it's 6 Nimmt! incarnation. (Jim emerged from Entdecker: Exploring New Horizons in time to play the last half of Lynette's cards, as she refused to do her civic duty and instead played randomly). Nate edged Tim, 2 points to 3, while Nyck had the magic touch and garnered 45 points.

Nyck barely met the deadline in Around the World in 80 Days by finishing in 79 days, but it was enough for the victory as Bryan, Zontziry, and Richard all finished late, and Tim and Bianca never made it back to London at all.

With brain activity fading and sleep beckoning, Tim forced Bianca, Nyck, Zontziry, Bryan, and Rich to play one last game of Circus Flohcati. No good deed goes unpunished, however, as Rich won handily by grabbing half the 7s and gala-ing early.

In what was perhaps an attempt to stock up before the impending famine, practically all available foodstuffs were consumed in the course of the evening - even the Cheese-its, despite Lynette's objection that the hot-n-spicy ones were mixing with the regular kind. The chocolate donut holes went so quickly that I never got any, and even the nuts had nary an almond left after the feast.

We have half a bag of Lemonheads and two butter cookies left over, but the big loser was the wasabi peas, of which over half remain. Too bad! I like them, and they will be making a repeat appearance, albeit in a smaller bowl.

The kiwi-strawberry sodas were very popular and were soon gone; oddly, black cherry was not a popular flavor this week despite being so in the past. There was one stray hard apple cider left over, which makes me suspect that the reason the Acquire game took so long to score was that everybody was drunk.
