There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Well, I've been enjoying Neil's lists of our played games, so in his absence last night I guess it falls to me to write one up.

There were ~10 people in total so we had 2 tables going most of the night.

3 players decided to take this one on. They were at it for a good 4 hours I think...

While at the other table we played this...

Still can't get enough of this game! I love how each game can play out so differently. My first game the game end was triggered by bonus markers running out. This one, no one had more than 2 markers and the game ended by hitting 20 points.

and then we played this...

I tried a "random" character selection strategy just out of curiosity, but not only did it not work too well, but it wasn't fun, so I stopped after the first round or two. Good game.

Since we had 6 players for witch's brew, we broke out expansion 1 from Alea Treasure Chest (6th player cards & bits, and little ravens to make end-game easier to track). Expansions 2 & 3 look great, amulets to cancel other people's claims, and all kinds of magical powers. But, 3 of our players were new so we opted out of those for this game.

as the epic game of Greed Inc was continuing, we launched into this one.

Silly game of orcs beating the hell out of each other. Sneaky gits and venomous creeps abounded, and all had a good time. The game throws balance out the window (lowest final score was 90, highest was 1460), but that's as it should be in Orc tribal squabbles!

This was on my hot 10 as a "can't wait to try" so I was happy to get it played.

Departures led to consolidation down to one table; this was just getting started as I left.

Great game, perhaps even Game of the 90s?

I taught Wally this while we were waiting for Chaos Marauders to end.

Alex had an easy time collecting blues and beat us 6 to 5 to 4.

Gary and Louis 'wanted to go home because it was after 2am. But, I taunted Louis with Nuclear War. Of course he bit. And I offered to play just the base game. So, Gary was in.

Of course, laughs were had by all. We all took population from Wally and started passing it around. While I deprived Wally of his first two turns. Even though Gary wanted to exit quickly and we joked about everyone attacking him to give him his wish. Wally was the 'easy' blood and he was taken out soon. They then figured I had to go (I had already launched two saturns (100 and 50). I did get them to in fight a little (I didn't have that much population). During my final 'retale' I did get Louis out. But, Louis did had missable luck and had duds and bomb shelter spins on his parting shots.


That left Gary and Alex mono y mono. Alex took care of Gary and Gary had a B-70 with 5 10s for his final 'retale'. Of course, Gary had to spin out of fuel for his first attack and Alex won.

I think he might have survived a full attack anyway as he had over 30,000 left.
