Summer in La Crosse this year has been one where vacations and other summer fun has not gotten in the way of a good game night. Until this week. All probable meeting places in town were unavailable due to everyone linked to granting access to such places being unavailable as well.

What to do?! You plan a field trip to Winona, MN where the Minnesota portion of the game group seized control and brought game night to town. Five hearty gamers gathered in a secret place some would describe as "the house of patrel".

And you may ask yourselves, "Who are the La Crosse Gamers?" Well, we meet Thursday evenings every week to play games of assorted lengths and complexities. If you are in the greater La Crosse area you are welcome to join us!

Information and a schedule of game nights is available at www.boardgames.meetup.com/495.

We also have a guild on BGG. It is here: / www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/43

Amy's likely birthday bash game request gets a play one week early. Walking into the house of patrel, she was informed that tonight's goal was to ensure she came in last place. At least, that was her husband's intent. Brian would only commit a chuckle or two. John's plan was to practice behavioral changes and not go aggressive (In the end, he only attacked an opponent once for a big 6+ point swing in the final season.) Of course, he felt no such qualms against the unfortunate farmers. Nancy played well other than not inquiring more about how scoring is done. Oops.

5th - 34 Nancy
4th - 41 Brian
3rd - 44 Amy
2nd - 51 Travis
1st - 58 John

Quarter to ten is the time when Shogun has concluded and been boxed. What to play? Brian says "I'm outta here!" and calls it a night. The remaining for look for something quick. John suggests Oregon. Hmm, maybe not the shortest game but we dig the cowboy meeples. John makes his cowboys be miners and scores a boatload of points from the gold mines and makes it another win for him this evening.

4th - 44 Amy (exact same score as Shogun!)
3rd - 57 Nancy
2nd - 61 Travis
1st - 68 John
