I traded for this with an extra copy of Taj Mahal that I had when I was at GenCon this year, but haven’t had a chance to get it to the table. So I set it up before people came today and we were able to play it as our first game. The best part about this game was the power and action card give you. Jon had two action cards, one that removed to influence and one that closed a speakeasy, which he used to blackmail different players throughout the game without ever having to play them. He and Sean also had some sort of 25% of the profits at certain speakeasies going on. After it was all said and done, they he took the game in the 8th round. I was last pretty much the whole time.

Jon $101k
Sean $92k
Kevin $66k
Nick $62k
Hannah $60
Adam $58

Ross dominated this game with a couple of new players in it. I think he said this was his highest score ever.

With an early 8 point score in the Roger field, I jumped out to a lead that could not be taken away. Hannah lost a sheep on the first shearing, which allowed Sean to catch up a little. The game only took like 25 minutes to play.

Sean, as is common with many 1st time players, found himself spending too much money. I, on the other hand, had around 60 million left over. Hannah did the best in this game.

As my wife fondly calls it, “the Bean Game” seemed to be a hit with Jessica and Sarah, some new gamers that we have had with us recently. Not sure what happened, but there was plenty of yelling!

Krista, who is really good at this game anyways, smoked all the newbies at this one. She did feel bad about it, but I’m not sure how much.

Shea had a huge last hand, scoring 82 points, which was enough to give him a comeback win over Angie. Sarah said that she enjoyed the game quite a bit, though she said she liked Bohnanza better.

For the second straight game in a row for me, I was able to fill all my spaces, but this time I did not win the game like I had in the previous session. I focused to much on cards, getting the wooden plow out, the tutor out, and several others. The problem was though that I was behind on the food all game, never being able to get a good engine going. Ross did very well with cards, his farm spaces, and just about every area. Jessica had a learning game, but did well for jumping into gaming only this month. Ken, had a good game, but when playing with such an AGRISTAR as Ross did not do so well.

Ross 46
Ken 36
Adam 28
Jessica 9

*Edit* Ken's score changed to 36.

We played this game in order to try to finish in time with the Bottle Imp game. I am glad I traded for this game, but after 5 plays or so, I think I have gotten my money out of it.

A recent purchase of Shea’s, it is a party game that involves blindfolds and lots of yelling. Two games were played and all players seemed to really enjoy it. It got extremely loud and made it difficult for Brian and I to carry out our Presidential campaigns.

Team Red (Javier, Jonathan, Angie) won both times.
Team Blue (Shea, Kevin, Ross) lost both times.

While the others were playing Captain Clueless, I taught Brian this recent purchase. This was a weird game, because for most of the game each candidate controlled whole regions. I was Nixon and controlled all of the West. Brian was Kennedy and controlled all of the South and Midwest. We split the East. By the end of the game though, that had changed. I still controlled the West, but thanks to some heavy campaigning, some election day events, and campaign strategy, I was able to take New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Illinois. This was enough to give me the win, though not as lopsided as we expected looking at the board at the end of the game.

To finish up the night we decided to play something light, such as Tikal. This is probably Hannah’s favorite game. Early on it looked like Hannah was going to win, but after I threatened her in a few temples, she took a really big hit in the third scoring. Kevin gathered an amazing amount of treasures, scoring 27 points on treasures alone the last round. He took the win and was glad that he stayed around for 1 more game.
