Stephen S. showed up around 8:45 and I had just taught Brian H. the game. Then we gave a quick rules summary to Steve and played through a couple hands.

Brian scored big on the first round capturing Belle Starr unassisted. Steve caught on by the second round and had a smokin' round. I sucked wind the whole time and I taught the game shake

I think Brian was on top when we quit early because others showed up. My guess at the score is (we didn't write it down):
Brian H. 20
Stephen S. 18
Steve C. 11

The main dish of the night. Stephen S. was out to the early lead scoring a service to Jacksonville. I think second round he was already at 9000 income and the rest of us were getting 1000-3000. Pat went into some serious debt but it really paid off and he motored ahead on the VP track and left us in the dust. He won by a solid 10 points in the end. Pat was the first to level 3 upgrade for points there and he was able to cash in on the east coast pretty well.

I was up North with a lock around Boston and Albany. I was able to ship a lot of goods between Albany and Boston. But I think late in the game I didn't have enough track to keep my shipping going.

Stephen S. had a nice setup down south with an Atlanta Hotel.

Brian and Brian H. worked like a team around Chicago to Ohio.

Pat 1st
Stephen 2nd
Brian H. 3rd
Brian 4th
Steve C. 5th

Pulled this out for the dessert.

Pat and Brian took off. We played the crokinole board where if you knock it in the middle you get to move one home.

Stephen S. was able to close it out with a win.

Brian H. showed off his hand crafted boards. They really look excellent.
