There was quiet a bit of noise coming from the Settlers table and they finished their game very quickly. It sounded like a fun game for Garth at least as most of the noise was of the the "What again!" variety and Garth gloating with glee and his huge resource pile

Winner: Garth

Whilst Garth was slaughtering his opponents in Settlers, Ra was taught and enjoyed. I seemed to employ my usual "play incredibly badly whilst teaching" strategy (I was trying honest).
The girls seemed to agree that the game was just 'shopping' so really I had no chance. They all played very well and enjoyed it. Rachel promised she would do better next time (good to hear from a first time visitor to the group)

Winner: Anaise
Mildly Annoyed 2nd place: Rachel, How can I be beaten in shopping! What's the next game?

After Settlers Z, G, and S were waiting for the Ra-ers to finish (Quickest game of Settlers ever!) Zirk taught the odd little puzzle game filler Set.

Winner: ?

Everyone except Silja had played this little card combo game before. After a quick teaching (me again... must get that game explainer microbadge
==> Tips here whistle )

Anyhow the courtyard filled quickly and tons of soldiers filled up the exchange. Garth manage a few stunning combos to quickly rid cards and fill up our hands. I seemed to be thwarted at every turn just as I was about to pull off some "truly amazing (tm)' move.
I think the game went well as Alyona asked if she could borrow the game to get a better idea of it.

Winner: Garth

Zirk wanted to play California and Rachel seemed sold on the idea as it involved more shopping!

I don't really know what happened during this game, but it sounded fun with both the girls absolutely destroying poor Zirk. He was truly outshopped.

Winner: Anaise

Rachel demanded a re-match so a second game was played. Zirk spiralled into debt. Anaise and Rachel threw wild parties and had guests galore.

Winner: Rachel
