Last thursday the second 'meeting' of de BGGG (Board-Game-Geek-Group) took place.
Rik, Bram, Stef and me joined up to play some games.

Last time on BGGG ... Dracula didn't show up, but reappeared somehow and took over Europe with his minions ...

Find out what happens this time ... Will there be someone crazy enough to take on the role as vampire with hunters in his trail that are craving for revenge? Will the hunters catch Vlad? Why is the title of this geeklist 'Acquiring Dracula'? Are the hunters witty shareholders in these times of financial trouble? ...

Get closer to the screen and find out ....

Last time Dracula began and ended building his empire in Barcelona, Spain.
This time Dracula began building his empire in the east of Europe. Stef wanted to think his way out of trouble, with his mathematicians brain! The hunters had themselves an expert amongst them; ME!

The hunters took their starting positions in the corners of Europe, so they would be on the trail of Dracula in instants!
Helas ... Dracula attacked Lord Godalming (Rik) in Bucharest and left Godalming with bitemarks in his neck ... damn you Dracula!

The hunters had luck on their side, and who can fight luck? Not even Dracula!
We sealed off eastern europe with a heavenly host and consecrated ground, we cornered the count with four of us during the day; when Vlad is at his weakest ... and that did the job!
Dr. Seward jumped at Dracula and threw everything on him, stakes, holy water, garlic etc. When Dracula got away (with three continue markers), Van Helsing could heroicly leap at the count so Mina Harker could take her revenge ... she slaughtered him ... The END.

The hunters were counting valor points, so they could decide who was the best hunter;
Bram 103 points
Jean 66,66 points
Rik 33,33 points
Stef 1 point

When Dracula was travelling through Europe, with the hunters in his trail, he thought of building an empire with un-dead. Why not build luxurious hotels along the road? Maybe someone will invest in them so Dracula would be out of financial trouble?

Four investers were found in no time. The first hotel chain to be founded was Saxon ... shares were sold like hot buns (Dutch saying) ... the hotel chain was growing ... merging and acquiring other chains.
In the meantime Tower was founded, started growing, and got acquired. Money was changing hands, shares were traded, stocks grew, investments took place etc etc

Saxon became the biggest chain of them all. It would be a photo-finish. Primary and secondary stockholders got there bonuses, shares were sold to the highest bidder.
In the end the players had only cash to count;
Rik $32200
Stef $44700
Bram $46600
Jean $48400

and so ...
Jean 103 points
Bram 66,66 points
Stef 33,33 points
Rik 1 point

So the rankings of that night:
Jean/Bram 169,66 points
Rik/Stef 34,33 points

That makes the following total ranking scores;
Jean 271,66
Bram 169,66
Rik 84,33
Stef 35,33


In the small hours (when dracula is strongest) we discussed new games to play, to design and to buy, which we can play next time.

I am making my own Splatball - Suburban legend. I'm also designing a travelling game (together with my girlfriend). Rik is designing a new zombie-virus-concept game! We're also thinking about altering rules for 'Saikoro' so we can play with more than 2!
So keep an eye on the BGGG lists for further notice ...

(I heard rumors about a namechange to BG3 !?)
