First game we played was Mission : Red Planet with a fan made expansion titled Mining the Moons of Mars. The expansion added new character cards of which you could change out 3 with their upgraded version. Phobos and Demios were also added to the mix. You could get your astronauts there by using Pilot to change the destination or on the blank ship you could direct them there. The Moons offered another way to score points and also a chance to get your astronaut from the moon to one of your base camps on the main planet.

Scores:
Bernie Tony Cates
Ice 5 12 6
Sylvanite 16 2 2
Celerium 0 15 33
Bonus 16 16 20
Ferrium 10 6 3
Total 47 51 66

I think I put the bonus points in the wrong column because Tony got the 9 bonus for most Ice instead of Bernie.

Two races. The first was won by Roland by a mile. The second was neck and neck between Bernie and me, Bernie by a nose.

Bernie and Cates tied for First and Bernie wins because he won the last race.

6 races and foutunes won and lost. So many times the lead horse would run out of steam at the finish line and roll a 1. It was a riot.

Bernie 1,360.000
Roland 1,310,000
Lucas 650,000
Brian 505,000
Tony 250,000
Cates 30,000... Hey I made 10,000 pounds, not bad for a day at the races

The Black Market allowed me to purchase the Chapel and thin my deck, Brian got the Throne Room and Roland had a bunch of Labratories.

Cates 37

Cates: Boomer
Russell: Apollo
Brian: Gaius Baltar (President) [Cylon]
Tony: The XO (Admiral) [Cylon]
Bernie: The Chief

I thought we were doing pretty well and had a chance but with the admiral as a cylon the final jump cost us 3 fuel for the loss.

Brian and I played a little Heroscape. I made it to the Bridge and held it for a turn for the win. Brian wasn't clear on the rules (my fault shake) so we played until we would kill each other. He was beating me up pretty bad so I conceded.

We played with the Bridge.

Cates [Russia] 4 kills 11 VP at nightfall
Brain [Ottoman Empire] 3 kills 5 VP at nightfall

I taught Brian the game and we played through. There were a lot of committed attacks followed by withdrawls. The board had no cities and a lot of hills.
