On Halloween we held our 3rd Gaming session. Although there were lots of scary people there, none were wearing any costumes. Turnout was a little light this time around due to the Holiday, but that just ment that those in attendance had just that much more fun.




Guildies there were:
Michael
Chris
Russ
Elliot
Stan
Josh
David
Sean
and Stinky Winklesteen

Russ, Michael, and I were first to play a game and agrucola was chosen because Michael had not played it yet and Russ and I were perfect teachers. We only withheld just enough information and rules to allow us not to finnish last, but Michael held his own, seeing as we were not going to hold it for him.

Elliot showed up for his first and hopefully not last session and tought us how to play Manhattan. An interesting and easy to learn game. The marauding monster got the better of my buildings about 80% of the time so last place was mine and mine alone.

Elliot 40pts

While I went to pick up the pizza, the others stayed to play Colossal Arena. A sneaky betting game where Mosnters and Titans fight and earn points for their benefactors.

This newer game has gotten very popular with our group. With a mix of colonization, building and battling, and card playing to boot, this game seems to have it all. And with a set game ending it never seems to get boring, or play too long.

I've had this game for about 3 months and have not been able to find someone who has played it, and get them to teach it. So After a thorough read of the instructions I brought it out and Josh and Sean were willing to try it. We made plenty of mistakes and missed some rules, but we were shakily able to make our way through. A second play will deffinately be needed.

Sean 84pts
Josh 74pts
Chris 70pts
