Another lightly attended Wednesday night of gaming. This time we had 50% more attendees (3 instead of 2)

Despite the low turnout fun (to varying degrees) was had.

Now a word from our sponsor - The LaCrosse Board Game Group meets weekly (sometimes twice weekly) with often a dozen participants. We have a guild here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/433 and our meetup page is here: http://boardgames.meetup.com/495/

Now on to the game(s):

Rick had not played Agricola before and was interested in trying. Mike sugested we play with the mini expansion (the one with the seasons). The combination of a new player and the expansion made the game last longer than typical.

I for one found the expansion interesting - bonus fences and instant breeding came in handy.

In the end experience payed off:
Mike - 52 (lots of games though mostly with his 10yr old daughter)
Brian(me) - 41 (approximately the 5th time I've played)
Rick - 28 (1st game- don't fell bad Rick that is a decent score for the 1st time)

We didn't actually play this, but we had planned on it and I felt silly have a geeklist with only one game.
