I seem to have entered this under my brother's user information! BGG apparently uses the information of whoever was signed in last at the computer. My bad!

Sorry this is out so late - I volunteered to enter this for Doug, as they are out of town, but we went camping over the weekend and the Geek seemed to be down when I tried to enter this yesterday. Anyhoo, since I didn't know I would be entering this, I have no particular comments about games I wasn't involved in, so please fill in the blanks for me!

Cheers,
Jenny

One of my perennial favorites - who can say no to ultra-super powers? If you want to get this game a tiny bit more, watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lk2Y3rjpepc&feature=related (Wade, this is for you and Hannah!), and see some of the related videos. Dance the boogie indeed. Wade and I got Shannon and Larry to play this with us, and Wade took out his 4 villains first!

This looks like a fun one, I am looking forward to trying it. Not knowing how scoring works, Jose had 12 points, followed by Doug with 11, Greg with 10, and Beth with 9 - maybe it's like golf and Beth won. Greg was the last man standing, though, and everyone enjoyed a group hug after their combats to the death.

As Beth recorded the score, she made some rather disgruntled notes about Wade, Greg, and myself cahooting together and pushing nutmeg, and not getting to be harbormaster. I personally was pushed off my money ship at least once by Her Pirateyness. Bitter, bitter. Well, maybe the scores do back her a bit: Wade 125, Jenny 121, Greg 90, Beth 83, Shannon 81.

I hope this is the right game; there were several choices including the name "Roman Empire". Also, I have no idea who played this, other than Dave won. Good for you, Dave!

Jose and I purchased this game quite a while ago, and we finally got to play it! I loved it; it must work the way my brain does, because I picked it up pretty quickly. Doug tried to grab the win by loading up on gold, but he just couldn't quite edge me out. Final scores: Jenny 94, Doug 92, Greg 62, Jose 59.
