The turnout was decent. Even though it was a game day, a group magic game broke out. There were 6 people playing it too. It was like I was in some kind of Bizarro world. Travis and Sarah brought Vanessa who is 3 months younger than Myles, who is 11 months. Venessa was trying to poke Myles in the eye while he was trying to give her a bear hug. Just a little baby royale going on. Anyway, on with the show.

This game was the one of the first games played and then we finished the night with a couple more. Angela hadn't played before and schooled us in game two by ending it early and being the only one with items in her vault. Game three was just the opposite in the fact that we were maxing out our vaults and ran the deck out.

Game #1:
Mark - 40
Steve - 28
Matt - 27
Eugene - 18

Game #2:
Angela - 17
Steve - 6
Mark - 4

Game #3:
Mark - 58*
Steve - 58
Angela - 27
* = won on cards in hand tie-breaker.

I don't know who were the good guys (US) and the bad guys (THEM), but the final was:
Sid and Ruben - 985 (presumably they went over a 1000 on the last hand)
John and James - 215

I wanted to play, but I fell on the Myles sword and let Sid play the longer game this time. Jay's one point victories are getting awfully suspicious.

Jay - 168
Travis - 167
Sidney - 146

I miscalculated and thought we had one more player not in the Magic game. Eugene and I ended up playing several two-player games. This was the first and I was able to teach it after I shook off the cobwebs.

Mark - 63
Eugene - 30

I recall Jay at a previous game day saying he preferred Campaign Manager 2008 to this game, but then he walked and said it didn't look familiar. Hmm...

Mark - 10
Eugene - 7

OK, since I know this game was brought out of the basement, I'm assuming that the following scores are for it (a big fail for whoever recorded this game).

John - 11
James - 32
Steve - 43
Ruben - 54
Scott - 68

I was glad to get to play this one. The events were pretty evil (we had 4 heroes on the board at one point) and Khorne kept after my guys instead of Travis's Nurgles. I do believe this is the highest score I've ever seen Khorne with which is pretty surprising.

Travis, Nurgle - 57
Melinda - Khorne - 48
Mark - Slaanesh - 37
Jay - Tzeentch - 19

Matt pinch-played for Sidney since I think it was Myles bedtime by the time this was played.

Angela - 124
Sidney/Matt - 116

I taught this game to at least one new person and the others needed refresher. I'm not sure if I taught it too well or being in the 5th starting position is bad. I'd have to play it at least another time to see if this is a game that shouldn't be played with 5 people. There was an awful lot of blocking going on.

Jay and Angela (tie) - 41
Steve - 35
Ruben - 32
Mark - 30

I think the moral of the story is that Slavery doesn't pay, and having just the right amount of sacks at the end is key. There was much discussion about sacks while they were putting the game away. Good sacks, bad sacks, just the right amount of sacks. It should come with an R rating. I also walked in on this game and saw both Travis and Sarah, but no Vanessa. I looked in the living room and she was passed out in the car seat basking the glow of the TV (there was a blanky over at least part of car seat).

Melinda - 57
Travis - 51
Sarah - 41
Sidney - 29*
* = slavery doesn't pay.
