Eight of us, including one first-time attendee, played lots of games quickly. We again feature the latest light and easy favorite, PitchCar Mini.

Three took to the isles of Japan for Samurai. With the clever scoring concept of needing majorities in two of three goodies collected, this is a game that typically is close and uncertain until the end when scoring is done. This evening's game held true.

3rd - Eric
2nd - Shawn
1st - Travis

Travis and Shawn each had majority for one item. Eric tied for majority with the third item and was eliminated. For the first tie-breaker, Travis and Shawn both had five non-majority pieces. The second tie-breaker was total pieces and Travis edged out Shawn, 10-8.

John's growing favorite of Airships was the other game being played while Samurai was going on. A full four player game took place as Derek K. arrived just in time to tolerate being France. (That'll teach Derek to show up late!)

4th - Brian 3
3rd - John 9
2nd - Amy 12
1st - Derek 20

Wow, with a dominating win as France, Derek is certain to prefer to be involved in all things French from this point forward. What say you, Monseigneur Derek?

Samurai finished but the Airships were still being built so the three amigos were joined by Courtney for a four player game of Vegas Showdown. Who could build the most glittering attractions in Las Vegas and claim the most fame?

4th - Courtney 38
3rd - Eric 52
2nd - Travis 54
1st - Shawn 59

The Airships were complete with Derek's impressive French win, but now Vegas Showdown was in mid-game. What to do? How about an exciting and quick game of Pitchcar Mini?!

4th - Amy
3rd - Brian
2nd - John (still beloved "Flick" despite the loss)
1st - Derek (wins in the French car!)

Vegas Showdown continued and the lure of the track was too tempting for the racing men. Amy feigned car trouble and remained in the pit row.

3rd - Derek aka "Frenchie"
2nd - John aka "Flick"
1st - Brian aka ""

Vegas Showdown still had a tense round or so to go, so pleas from Amy were headed for no more Pitchcar Mini and Samurai was returned to the table for its second play of the evening. Could the Japanese be introduced to a French accent?

4th - Brian (no majorities)
3rd - Derek (one majority)
2nd - John (one majority)
1st - Amy (one majority)

Amy won the tie-breaker but the details were not written down. They were probably shared verbally.

Despite Courtney's affinity for Marie Antoinette she was agreeable to a game of Guillotine. Would this be a help or a hindrance?

4th - Eric 5
3rd - Shawn 9
2nd - Courtney 9 (wins tie-breaker over Shawn)
1st - Travis 12

Shawn ended two of the days very early, hence the low scores.

Travis was saddened by missing out on Pitchcar Mini, so he and Flick convinced Eric to try the game out. Would Eric be fascinated or repulsed by the flickin' game of race?

3rd - Travis
2nd - John (Flick in a losing streak?!)
1st - Eric (First timer enjoys the victory lap!)

The others either tired or feared Pitchcar Mini. With little time until closing the blade of Guillotine was sharpened and returned to the field of play for five.

5th - Amy 11
4th - Derek 12
3rd - Courtney 13
2nd - Shawn 14
1st - Brian 15

Travis couldn't let go of Pitchcar Mini and re-configured the track in hopes of luring another game out of the others. Through his and Flick's efforts three others were lured to the starting line. Those who opted out raced for the exit or claimed a need to visit the restroom.

5th - Courtney (started 5th)
4th - Derek (started 2nd)
3rd - John ("Flick" started 3rd)
2nd - Brian (had pole position)
1st - Travis (started 4th)

Congrats to Travis on his first Pitchcar Mini win, assisted by a push across the finish line by none other than the legendary Flick!
