Inauguration Day, so the Sacramento Boardgamers ushering in the winds of change.

Nah, no grand statements here, we just met at Crepeville Curtis Park and a couple of dozen plus of us got our games on This was my first Tuesday meetup of 2009 and my Curtis Park debut. I must say, that I *love* the easy access to/from the freeway and free parking. I didn't find the noise/background to be an issue (I'm hard of hearing), but it may be that CP is well enough established in the rotation that with the gamers 'taking over' the back section, the noise level was 'gamer-friendly' versus the dull roar of say, Fox & Goose

Anyways, for more information about gaming in the Sacramento area, please go to:

Big thanks to Conny for resurrecting the 'game log' sheets-it's a big help in tracking who played what, especially in the larger confines of CP.

JimV and I had both recently obtained this Kramer area majority title (and if you've been following along, you'll know that NOTHING in gaming makes me go "SCHWINGGGGGG!!!" like Area Majority ) and having read the rules we were anxious to give it a go. We found 2 other willing explorers in Sonia and Conrad. It took a bit to go through the actions, but once we got started, the rules-fumbling was really at a minimum (e.g. going over scoring/volcanoes etc. as we got to them).

I went for some early treasures plus an immediate '6 temple lockdown' to guarantee some points for all rounds. I then proceed to harass the heck out of Jim to control the southern temples. Conrad got a nice haul of treasures and he and Sonia fought on the Northern side. Even w/ the 'splainin and rules lookups and beginner AP, the game took a mere two hours-with 4 experienced players, this will easily drop to 1.5hours my sweet spot for a Tuesday nite game.

Tikal delivered in spades and while I think El Grande remains the Area Majority Gold Standard, Tikal is a worthy companion in the ol' kit bag.

DavidO-108 (9 treasure points, 33 final round points)
Conrad-104 (19 treasure points, 47 final round points)
Sonia-99 (7 treasure points, 31 final round points)
JimV-96 (4 treasure points, 26 final round points)

Janet and Honoree didn't let the lack of players deter their weekly game. Using the dummy 3rd player, they once again built and fought for Catan.

Janet-13
Honore-6

Nick, Vicki, Karen, and Kelly got in a couple of plays of this timeless classic.
Vicki is clearly from the far future, as her obvious prescience carried her to victory (Vicki-try?) in both games.

My other game of the night. Hey Kevin-with 2 months to go, is it time to start pimping our own lil' Convention: Conquest Sacramento?

http://www.conquestsac.com/

I'll be hosting this fun standalone based on the Caracssone system, and I definitely wanted to get into 'training and splainin' mode

I had one large river system/huts and one not so much. I ended up w/the 'fire chases tigers' bonus tile to get a bunch of deer, but all three of us ended up sharing a 22 point field. Chris rode a late Hut/river system and another field for the win.

Chris-(74 points at end of tile drawing, 131 total points)
Davido-(73, 119)
Conny-(65-108)

Whoops, almost forgot-Steph and a friend played some Carc early on-I saw some expansion pieces and tiles, but couldn't tell which expansions exactly were in play.
