So its been since last August that the nascent Steel City Gamers have been meeting. We generally have about 4-5 although we have a group of around 9 to draw on. The last few weeks were very small and not really worthy of a list but last week we finally made the 2 table pantheon! Seems like a modest achievement for most but I was excited to get two solid tables in my good sized kitchen/dinning room!

We had Hannah, myself, Ceiligh, Kirsten, Gina (birthday/margarita girl), Tim and Solar Roasting Coffee Mike, his brother Dave (first game night) and his wife Lindsey (who drags him to play! Ha!) And so we had 5 beautiful women and 4 geeky guys assemble. I think we have to be the only group with more women then men and an opera singer!

Thanks to Tim who came down to help with Phase I of my playland assembly project. We repaid in Mexican food, and letting him whoop us.

Ceiligh, Tim, Gina, Hannah and I broke out For Sale at first. Gina brought just enough rum and margaritas to enter the happy zone, which was ashamed because we were rooting for a repeat performance of last months appearance.

In her typical fashion Gina picked up the game quickly and just about won. My wife, ever the mathlete and gamer won by a couple over Tim and I. Gina was requesting a rematch but we moved onto...

Mike called in transit and we informed him we'd have two tables. He joked back "A girls and a guys table?" Little did he know. My wife draped the second table in a flower pattern and we ended up playing on it with all the men.

My seocnd favorite SASsy filler. The five of us had a rousing game of PP until Dave, Lindsey and Mike arrived, fearing we would even out geek their last visit. Gina clobbered us all. " Oh these yellows are worth how many? Wow I have a lot of them."

With only one game for 9 people we all gathered round the small kitchen table for a game of Slide 5. It was quite the fun time, as Dave and Mike were convinced that collecting cards was a good strategy. Needless to say Hannah edged out Gina and Kirsten for the win. It was a nice way to get everyone to the same table for the opener. Mike still believes monkeys choosin at random can do better, better then him perhaps...

And so we separated to the two towers: men to the flowers, women to the dark wood table. I admit there is nothing hotter than your wife teaching games to a bunch of other women. There were lots of funny looks and cross table flirting as numerous glass bottled beverages were consumed at the ladies table.

So Dave is new. What better way to break him in then RFTG. Wow, what a bad idea. Mike wnated to play again after playing 3 weeks ago, but man did it take forvere, There was extensive steam coming from Dave;s ears for the 1.5 hours it took to finish the game.
One demerit for Tim, Mike, and I.
Tim and I started slow and Mike was ableto nab the win from us in the late game.

Always a favorite, requested by Gina, as its her first euro game. Lindsey also only really knows this little euro game, but I've had WAY too much of it lately. So the 5 ladies traded for an hour with lots of laughing and jesting. I heard that my wife won in a landside.

So in a bizarre series of events, Gina starts making our fabled "untsch untsch" techno cheer after a good move. I thought she learned it form us but she had developed her own untsch organically and independently of Jose (trademark) who invented our untsch dance. Social scientists from the University of Michigan have been contacted to study the phenomena.

In what was becoming a very Saxon chirstmass, Hannah busted out Ra to teach Mike, Kirtsen, Ceiligh and Gina. Ther was lots of banter during this one but I was too far away to catch much of it. Sounds like Hannah got another win.

While waiting for the girls to finish up their second game, Mike, Dave, Tim and I played Circus. Dvae was a little more at ease during this one. It is still a fun filler for me, and I forgot who won. Does it really matter who wins Flochati?

Dave, Lindsey, Tim and I broke out Wasabi and Lindsey thought it looked beautiful and fun. Luckily this one went over really well and Tim and I tied for the win.

Man was this game money well spent. While waiting for the second table to open up the boys played Sliders. I was the only one who had played before, but all seemed to enjoy it especially Mike and Dave. Tim sat at the table since there wasnt much room, and Mike got some nice pictures for his myspacepage Ive since learned. We had a ball with this one and Tim took the win in the sitting position.
