We had a big crowd at the Midtown Crepeville tonight, with about 30 people in attendance.

I'll list the games that I remember seeing being played. Please add the games I missed and comments about the ones I did see.

It seems like Jason and Chris play this every week. This week, they were joined by David V., who also seems to be a regular, and Jeff E.

Michael and I opted to start our evening out with this version. Greg joined us, playing for the first time. I was the first to get the all colors chit and two of the regions chits. I also was the first to get all my post offices on the board to trigger the end.

A game of this was also in progress when I arrived, including Nick and Vicki. I believe they had a full table of 5 for this game.

Nick and Vicki joined me for one of my favorite tile laying games. We all managed to cordon off one corner, making the connecting shrine victory almost impossible to achieve. I had stored up my amphorae, and managed to get all my tiles out one turn before Nick was able to.
