Mike and Anna opened up their home for Halloween, which happened to fall on a Saturday so it was super convenient for everyone! There was a lot of fun food, from bones to foggy punch, and even the under-20 set got out for a bit of trick or treating with the younger ones.

It was a busy busy night with a lot of people and a lot of games played. Add in trick-or-treating, Rock Band and hot tub, and it was a party!

Mike - Ultra Soul (died 1st)
Teresa - Unknown (died)
Randy - George (Won)
Brian - Franklin (Won)
Lisa - Charles (Won)
Mike - Agnes (lost)
Adriel - Bryan (lost)

Looks like it was a bad day for the shadows. Did they forget it was Halloween? Maybe the Hunters were extra ready for them.

The kids beat me up and good in this one. We had part of the regular Dominion and part of Intrigue, and we had 4 attacks (including the Witch), so we also had curses and our only defense was the Moat. I'm not so good with the attacks, in case that wasn't obvious.

Randy - won on skill tie breaker
Brian - didn't win on tie breaker (2nd)
Lisa - didn't make up total*
Ashley - didn't make up total*

*Not sure what that means (I haven't played the game yet) but they both did it, or didn't do it, as it were.

Another unnamed game, but I think I got this one figured out.

Jenny/Ruben - 215
Melinda/Mike - 1185

What happened? I'm guessing Jenny couldn't get Ruben to stop calling Grand Tichu every round.

The games are so out of chronological order today. This was a late night, just before heading home game.

I like this game, and I either do well or end up in the water. This was a do well night.

Looks like it was a tight race for 2nd/3rd, but everyone else seemed to pick their spot uncontested.

In yet another play of Dominion in the day, this looks like it was quite the close game. Nicely done.

Ah, good old Glory to Rome. One of the earlier games with Denver Games for me. This was Teresa's first go at this one, and although she professed not to know what she was doing, she did quite a good job at it.

Unfortunately for her, Michael stole her thunder in the vault and his 10 to her 19 became a 19-all tie. It was a little rough with 5 players, and there seemed to be a bit of down time, but otherwise, it was a fun time.

Another game joins in on what is becoming Repeat Day, Repeat Day. I think I heard Lisa teaching the game, so I'm guessing this was a first time for at least one person. I don't know if they used any of the On The Brink pieces or roles, but I'm guessing not.

Game 1

Lisa
Laura
Justin
Brian

Result: 5 epidemics - LOSE (that's what it says on the sheet, in all caps. Guess it went badly).


Game 2

Lisa
Laura
Justin
Brian

Result: Same result of losing, but appears to have been much closer - the note says "Lose with 1 turn to win". Ouch.

Captain Justin
Communications Officer Lisa
XO Ashley (I always forget what XO means, so maybe she's the Julie from Love Boat, spreading love on the the ship. Maybe not)
Red Shirt Ashley Laura
Security Officer Brian

Flight 1 - 27 points

Flight 2 - Destroyed. Ship's log states "Our captain was a bit confused". Maybe it was the double Ashley action, or maybe he brought over a virus from Pandemic.

Yet another game that has multiple listings, and even though these probably took place 8 hours apart, here they are for your amusement.

Game 1
Adrielle - won
Pyro

Game 2
Nikki - won
Pyro
Jenny

Guess it wasn't Mike's day with this game. When we played, the magnets were all hopped up on Halloween candy, because they were wiggling all over the place. This was more of a "let's show Jenny how this works" game than anything close to cutthroat.

Then Cameron came over, and was playing a solo game, but Jenny was moving the magnets around with another one under the table, and Cam didn't catch on right away, and when he figured out what was going on, he blamed it on Mike. Well done, my son.

Somehow we forgot to write down Power Grid (or we did and the paper got lost). It's one that I've been wanting to play for a while, and I had played about 2 turns once before, but this time I got in a full game.

Players were:
Nikki (won)
Anna
Michael K
Teresa

It was new to both me and Teresa, but I think we both did well. I'm trying to remember the end results. I remember that I picked up a 6 power thingie early on, so I was able to power anything I could possibly get on the board. After Anna and Michael pointed out that the 3 cards were going to have to power 15, I made that my mission to acquire the necessary power and keep getting plants on the board every time.

In the final turn, I think Teresa powered 14 (and I think she built 15), and Michael and Anna were somewhere in the 12-14 range, I think. I built to 15 and powered them all, but I was in a good position and could have built more. I got a little scared about losing due to turn order, but I was able to survive the others in the end.

Fun game.
