While my notes show about 2 dozen gamers throughout the evening, Mid-town Crepeville didn't seem that crowded. Still, the usual variety of games were played.

For more information about gaming in Sacramento please go to:

As usual, fill in the blanks and goofs.

My first game of the night. This was one of my more efficient games. I resisted overpaying for slots and got a good lounge/slot engine going, supplemented by a couple of basic restaurants. I was able to fill the casino slots with a couple of Sports Books. My playmat had a little bit of everything-filled casinos, restaurants, connections between the two, good cash and population and some bucks left over for a pair of VPs. Still, Don's big ticket locations and the diamonds and 3/4 diamonds carried him to the win.

My copy of China received a good, healthy workout from Conny, Jeff, Markus, and I believe John(?).

Dwayne, Karen, Greg, and 2 others built their Alhambras. According to Dwayne, this was an "everything and the kitchen sink and the oven" version with ALL of expansions 1 and 2 in play. Yowzah!

Not to worry, Pandemic was just an appetizer. The Pandemic crew quickly got down to serious business in Catan.

Shadows over Camelot was underway as I left. Karen, Dwayne, and several others attempted to save Camelot (or not, I don't know if a traitor was in play).

DK knows what I like. And with my gaming few and far between, 5P El Grande will scratch most of my itches. Don was new to the game, but with 4 vets and a quick study, this promised to be a ruthlessly cutthroat contesting of Medieval Spain. The game did not disappoint in the least.

I've been trying to get better caballero management, and overall my flow was a lot better than usual. That said, I airdropped my Cabs from the castillo into a very crowded Valencia to no avail. In round 3, Scott managed to lock up a bunch of cabs and hose me w/ the mobile scoreboards.

This was sort of a Dick Dastardly (of Wacky Races fame) game for me-close second in the first round, solid lead after two, leading most of the way, only to stumble and run out of gas at the end. Still, a great play of a great, great game. Thanks one and all.

Scott: 13-48-107
Jana: 30-51-100
Davido: 29-61-94
DK: 22-52-91
Don: 31-56-90

Most of the really nasty hosage Intrigue cards didn't come out until round 3, so this was a very strategic game of placement, more so than I am used to.

Funny name for a game, but honest, this was a game that was played by Kathy and Myra.
