My brother and i sat down for a hungover game of Mr. Jack in NY. We started around 8:30 AM EST. We also opened a bottle of Opa-Opa porter. We don't have a problem we just wanted to cure our headaches. Anyway, I was Mr. Jack in Game 1. Brad (my bro) found me out in turn 6. Oh well.

Game 2. Still sipping the porter. Brad was Mr. Jack this time. He got an amazing pull and won the game in turn 2. Embarrassing.

Overtext is really cool. The best 100 GG I've ever spent.

Well. I'm actually bored with overtext. Why did I give all that GG away?

My two girls brought this down this morning. Santa gave it to them and it hasn't been taken out of the box yet. So while we let mom sleep in we played 3 games of which each of us won one.

I probably should treasure that one victory. My wife and I have since played 2 games of Alchemist of which she won both.

Not off to a good start for 2010. Maybe the next game will be better.

It was a slow day. We only got one game in and it was Carc: Wheel of Fortune. We added in the Princess and Dragon expansion to boot.

My wife had to work at 6 AM in the morning and had post new Years Eve fatigue so that looks to be it for the night.

Taught a friend not really into gaming this one (tutorial scenario). It was an interesting game as the Axis (him) jumped out to a lead with some amazing die rolls. The Allies came back mid-game to make it 3 VP to 3 VP. The dice gods were not kind to him at the end and I managed to squeak out a victory with a lucky double hit roll.

Played with the uber-deluxe edition. Played using the China civil war card and the new optional cards.
USSR auto victory in the 10th turn with Africa scoring card and no US presence in Africa.

Got this for my birthday last March. Finally got to play it. Had a friend over for a three-player game last night.

I came in dead last, but I was happy enough to grab the 6-point chit for Bayern.

(I posted a session report after the game last night, in case anyone wants more detail.)

Many of the local gamers stayed in town over the Christmas break, and more announced that they would already be back from their trips by New Year's, so we planned a games day. I set a start time of 10:00 am (as I would be up by then), but honestly did not expect anyone to make it until later. Surprise! I was doing some final cleanup when the first guest arrived at quarter to ten!

I finished my cleaning and we talked about what we wanted to play. We decided to see how Dungeon Lords played with two and were in the middle of the second season when two more players arrived. We restarted the game with the full complement and were very close to finishing when the second batch of players arrived.
