We had a pretty good turnout for the rare 5th Saturday game day. We even had a couple from the Springs, Jose and Jenny, show late into the evening after they attended a wedding reception in Denver. We were pretty punchy by that time, so it made for good entertainment.

We started off with this game while waiting for other people to show. My "slow and steady wins the race" strategery didn't work.

I like the concept of the game. It involves playing corporate CEOs and trying to get big golden parachutes for running companies poorly. It took us (and by us, I mean everybody but Ashley) a while to grasp what we were supposed to be doing. I was running my initial company too well, and I went most of the game without getting fired from it. The company had so much money when I finally got fired that it wasn't even on the calculation charts (for figuring out the termination bonuses), so clearly I ran it too well for too long. With only two corporate prestige items available in every turn, it meant the two people with the most personal money at the end each got one, so you're better off trying to get them earlier than later.

I was a little concerned that this was some version of twister when I heard Llad was on top of Sidney coming from the next room. Sid commented to me that planning ahead for random events was kind of a hard thing to do, and that six players were probably too many for the game.

Matt - 19
Llad - 13
Eugene - 12
Travis - 12
James - 11
Sidney - 10

I had enjoyed this game the weekend before when Travis taught it at Mike and Anna's. I just like how the game plays.

I had just picked this up the day before. We broke it out and learned the rules. I had read through them briefly before. Apparently, I need to work on my reading skills or just not to skip important sections. We played the first two games wrong because we weren't buying heroes when we could and when we leveled up we were paying the cost of the hero. Despite the incorrect play, I think we all enjoyed the game.

Game 1:
James - 19 (shared win)
Mark - 19 (shared win)
Matt - 16

Game 2:
Matt - 39
Mark - 38 (my dragon slaying ability came up just short. I had 6-7 of the 10 potenital dragons in my deck after killing them.)
James - 30

Game 3:
I was sitting out trying to get Myles to sleep. Nikki showed up and I suggested another game of this, and this time with the correct rules.

Nikki - 37
Mark - 26

I still haven't played this game. It sounded violent though. I think Travis was having his life threatened when I was watching for a bit, but that might have had something to do with the *players* vs the game.

I was only briefly exposed to how this game was going. I heard somebody say this is a game where you should NOT be suffering from AP, but clearly somebody was.

Ruben - 48
Travis - 37
Melinda - 35
Ashley - 32*

*The note on the score sheet indicates that Ashley "took last place and had funner time". Such bad grammer, I believe it should be "had more funner time".

I talked the guys into playing this one, and then bowed out so Sidney could play since I know it is one of her favorite games. This was also about time for Myles to be in bed. Sid won the game and even without the bloodiest axe.

Matt - 145

I was the Unknown and lied to Nikki, the other shadow player, which should have seemed to indicate I was a Hunter (I just didn't want the damage). I then gave her a card which pegged her as a shadow and I *didn't* attack her when I could've. She would deal me the death blow, and then claim she thought I was a neutral.
Hunters - Jackie (Ellen) and Jenny (George) - won
Shadows - Mark (Unknown) and Nikki (Werewolf) - lost
Neutrals - Sidney (Bryan) and Jose (Bob) - lost

This was all some of us had brain power for at the end of the night. In the last round, I swear the same pile got taken and filled 4 or 5 times in a row.

Sidney - 28
Nikkie - 46
Jackie - 47
Jose - 49
Mark - 56
Jenny - 77 (Jenny's score was circled, but I'm pretty sure lower is better in this came. It is a common mistake.)
