Well, even though we've already had our January game night, I'm finally getting this session report out (I thought I'd lost the score sheets, found them this week).

We again had a very nice turn out and got lots of good gaming in. The Lenox Board Game Group meets the third Wednesday of each month at the Lenox (MA) Community Center, 65 Walker Street, from 7-11pm. All are welcome, admission is always free. You can bring your own games, play some of ours, or a mixture of both. We will happily teach anyone how to play any of the games we break out.

I hadn't played this classic in a while (as you may notice from my score), and was glad to get the chance. Bruce ran away with it a bit, and the other three folks fought a good fight for second.

Ruth and Ed came in while we were deep into Puerto Rico and broke this worker placement gem out. I've not played Stone Age in a while, I'll try to remedy that.

Pedro came in, and got in another game of Stone Age. It looks like Ruth knows how to survive in a stone age civilization.

I got this one out, and it's climbing my personal rankings pretty quickly. I very much like the mix of economics and connections. It's hard to generate enough cash to do everything you want. It's also hard to get all the routes you want. That forces a fair number of decisions about how to best utilize limited cash - go for more flight cards and risk not making your final flight soon enough? Focus on the final flight, hope you claim it first and have enough of a bonus to win? Nice game.

Brian and Ed played a two player Dominion. I'm not sure if they used the Intrigue cards or not.

It's funny, I generally shy away from tile laying games, then almost always end up enjoying them. In this one, Eddie "the Ra Man" went a little nuts on calling Ra, leaving the rest of us to fight out a tight contest. I thought I might sneak in with a win, but Ruth is just too tough, at least in ancient civilization themed games.
