We're a group that meets and plays in Ft. Collins every Tuesday night at the local game store, Gryphon Games & Comics.


Missing some of the regulars this week, but still a fairly large turnout.

Luke taught the store owner Sherman how to play while others were arriving. I think Sherman even managed a win; unfortunately he couldn't stick around for more games.

A quick 5-player game of this to start us off. Ended with some very close scores, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd only a point apart.

And then I got right into Dominion as expected. Luke had bought his own copy (that he played with Sherman earlier). When they were done, we got in a 4-player game with 2 newbies (Shane L. and Pete) along with Luke and myself. We did a random card set that had no extra buys and very few ways to get extra actions (mainly the throne room).

An insane game of Power Grid. We played with a random Atolla Modulis board, the China rules, and the 2nd Power Plant Deck. I'm amazed it didn't come crashing down in complete failure to be honest!

Pete, Shane L., Travis, Flint, and myself. This was actually Pete's first ever game of Power Grid with this crazy combination :O

Flint, me, Travis, Shane S., and Shane L.

An extremely random take-that card game. Not very good I'd say; basically depends on what cards you manage to draw and/or the whims of your opponents. It's not awful and it plays reasonably quick, but I didn't really find it very fun.

A bunch of people left really early tonight, so we were down to 4 people at only 11pm or so. We eventually decided on this - Flint, Shane L., Shane S., and myself.

I got some good deals on point tiles (fancy lounges and a night club) early on, but I couldn't ever get any slots at a price I wanted to pay and it cost me. Shane S. loaded up on the slots early on and was making mad bank.

Some of the random events rewarded having lots of restaurants and slots, which narrowed my point lead significantly. The small gain I got from having lots of lounges paled in comparison, and my engine was too weak (I was only making 9/turn by the game's end) to keep up. Was a good game though.
