Compared to the record number of games I got to play last week, 7, I only got to play 2 games this week and no new games.
They were both good games though.

Oh course the big event of the night was Matthew giving me the log! Thanks Matthew.

The first game I played of the night was Le Havre, I had played it once before with 5 players and we got the rule on loans wrong and let people take loans at anytime.

I liked it a lot more with only 4 players and the correct rule for loans.

I was able to run away with the game thanks to getting the grain and the cows going early and building ships.

Final Score
Dion: 71 ( He could not ship or buy a luxury liner on the last turn because he needed a single Florin)
Steve: 178
Greg: 92
Rob: 123

I had to leave after Le Havre for an hour and by the time I got back everyone was in a game. Matthew, Amelia and Greg were nice enough to hang out past midnight to give me a final game.

My card distribution was terrible and I set up Amelia to be queen of the gold mines and give her the victory. This was my 5th play of Oregon.

Final Score:
Greg: 90
Matthew: 93
Steve: 82
Amelia: 99

Charles, Amelia, Ray, and I played this very unusual "map" for Age of Steam. While it's an interesting idea, it really takes most all of the tension out of the game. I can't imagine playing it again.

Dion, Jake, Greg, Charles, and Amelia were gracious enough to help me with another playtest of Elvencraft. It played much better than last week, but the downtime with 6 players is painful, as with so many eurogames. I think I've played the new version enough myself now and am ready to watch others play. It's getting close, and some fun new tweaks for the next version may be just what it needs to all come together. Very excited!

Matthew, Amelia, Dan, Jake, Ray and Charles played Q-Jet 21xx.

Jake and Ray didn't finish the race and I foolishly let Dan beat me for third while Matthew coasted in for the win.
