Loaded down with candy and prizes we went to the library to bribe the kids away from the computers in the new youth center and get them to try some board and card games. While the vast majority descended upon the candy and ran, we managed to get a few to stick around to try some games. The eyeball candle, bag o zombies, and ghost cameras made good prize incentives. Although I took two bags worth of games, only a few hit the table.

At first it didn't look like any kids were going to show up so to pass the time we started a game of Midevil. About three turns in, some kids came in and wanted to try some games. I turned over my position to Eric and went over to explain some of the games to them.

We started out with two kids looking for something quick and easy. I pulled out MMM... Brains and quickly taught them how to play. Some of their other friends saw them playing and wanted in. I stepped back and let the five of them play. They spent about an hour playing while I moved between this and Midevil watching the action. They played several games and I gave out two of the ghost cameras and the eyeball candle to winners. This went on to be very popular with people leaving and other kids joining in.

The Midevil game was wrapping up and word of the prizes had started to spread. It was here that we met someone who had the Munchkin spirit yet had never played the game. Kid: "What do you have that is easy to learn? I just want to play a game to get a prize."

A quick tutorial and he was up and running with enthusiasm. Ben came in right after we started so we were able to deal him in. A couple rounds later another kid, Xavier, came in and I surrendered my place to him and let him take over. Ben's Mummy race was driving our little Munchkin insane as he was not able to look for trouble to finish the game. He eventually had to leave to go home, still stuck at level 9. I let him pick something off the prize table just for showing true Munchkin spirit. He picked up a couple of the skull glasses.

I think we have a convert in Xavier as he was asking where to find a copy. We directed him to the FLGS in town.

Xavier was still ready to play so we let him pick out the next game. He chose Humans!!! By this time Les and Kelly had joined us.

We ended up ending the game with Les in the lead with 8 humans captured/infected/eaten and cleaned up before the library closed. Xavier walked out with a couple Skull goblets and a copy of California. Eric picked up the bag o zombies.

Still have Lupus in Tabula and Pecking Order to give away at another event.
