I moved my regular 1st Saturday gameday to Friday due to the 4th of July. It proved to be a fairly popular decision because we had a huge turnout (about 25 people). We had 5 tables going for the most of the day. We started early at 10 am and finished in early hour of 4th of July. We provided burgers, salmon burgers, hot dog, and ribs for lunch and dinner. It was quite a nice way to celebrate Independence day.

Bonus:

Craig also hosted on July 4th. The games played there is listed at the end of this list.

I have in the past set a start time of 10 am. Nobody usually take it seriously and usually show up around noon. To break that trend, Mark showed up a bit after 10 and I taught this game. I was interested in playing the recently introduced "late Bronze Age" variant, but decided to stick with the original (shorter) game.

Ashley showed up shortly after Mark and we started a game of Mu. In the first hand I had a great hand, possessing all 5 9's. But Mark the newcomer bid up to a bid of 7 or so, and I was too chicken to go higher.

I also chickened out and went to cook burgers. Brian finished out my game.

Several more people showed up during Mu, so I had Mike teach Mark and Melody FITS. Lisa joined in as they were starting. I overheard that Mike didn't teach about the -1 point for the open dots on the first round, but I guess they survived.

Mark took some bad advice on the last turn and drew an event card. It was a blue card and set him back and tied me, since I got to London "first", I won the tie-breaker. Gee I wonder who gave him the bad advice :-)

In this game, I went for the shipyards strategy. I managed to build all three shipyards, but it was touch and go for a while. I only had one card to any of the shipyards and it wasn't until the final draw that I got a Liverpool card. One problem with the shipyard strategy was that I was so cash strapped at the end that I had to pass twice at the end of the game.

The game came down to Matt overbuilding my Iron Works on the last turn. This not only lost me 5 points, but prevented me from doing the same to Larry's Iron Works. Probably a swing of around 15 points!

Jeff was looking for the Finito! game which I had inside FITS. I guess he found the game but decided to play FITS instead.

No I didn't buy the double dragon on the first turn. MikeK bought a single dragon on the first turn. I went with a builder to start and built two levels twice early (since the first drought was late at the 7th month or so). Ruben did very well for his first game.

"All players finished on the big blue die"

This got delayed about an hour to get started because they couldn't fit this on the card table and had to wait for one of the other tables.

This was a game that they picked while waiting for the Tichu game to finish. However, it was a bit too long because the Tichu game finished and another one started.
