It was a beautiful summer day. The game slackers chose to do other things for reasons that remain a mystery to we committed die hards. Everyone had a Felgering good time. The Nate wipes who didn't attend should be very ashamed. They missed an easy chance to gather an easy win or avoid a last place finish since Michael was there!



In attendance were:

Michael
Chris
Nate
Bed O
David
Jacque
Lowell
Victor
Josh
Pete made a late cameo appearance

Chris whomped on Michael as we were waiting for other folks to arrive. It was at this early point that I knew it was going to be a long day.

This multi table monster was immediately selected by Nate who then twisted arms to get the required maximum of 6 to the table. Oh, wait, there were only 6 there at the time. Oh, wait some more, it took more than one table. At least this one was in English.

Victor 37
Nate 35 with more $ than....
Michael 35 (first ever game of this!)
Ben 21
Lowell 11
Chris 8

A fun time was had by all except Chris and Lowell.

Actually, Nate felgerized the name to Nachos El Grande (or El Grande Nachos for those Yoda lovers). Ben and Michael taught this one to David and Jacque. Of course, it was just Michael's 2nd game so he was kind of still learning it as well. I love this game.

Ben 149
Michael 100
Jacque 85
David 83

All was not well in love land as Jacque tried to physically beat the crap out of David. Of course, David kind of deserved it......long story.

This is what they say they were playing. We think it was really Ricochet Robots.

Chris
Victor
Nate
Lowell

Evidently they all lost as no winner was posted.

We figured out we were hosing up a very obscure rule that made a HUGE difference in play. Sigh..... We were allowing people to Cure or Cannibalize at any time. Those technologies have to be only during the Action phase unless specifically stated otherwise (like for military defense purpose).

Jacque
David
Victor
Josh
Michael

We will get it right next time.

Lowell got to play, but it wound up being just a 2 player game with Chris. At least Chris let him win 56 to 55!

Everyone who played taught this one to Michael. The winner made money with the 0 card!

Jacque 59,000
David, 52,000
Josh and Michael 51,000

It must be noted that David initially reported 51,000 also and changed it to 52 after he heard that Josh and Michael reported 51.

The evening ended with a 5 player, kick-butt, no holds barred, steel cage match of this baby. Chris insisted on using the rules to his advantage. That does take the fun out of a game - LOL.

Chris won
David, Michael, Jacque, and Josh didn't
