AWESOME! loved my first game AND my first play of my own copy ! Thanks to Adina and Astro for teaching and assistance on my first game .. loved it .. can't wait to play again.. managed to get 2nd place even after I had my workers up late too many times in a row and totally almost blew my 2nd place late int he game.. but I had a ton of money for more points the the end and regained my 2nd place spot..

Results :

Astro 95
Kel ( me ) 86
Zalyry 76

Yuille 72


The other table actually got through two whole games of this .. so we had three games of Fresco take place tonight.


EDIT: Corrected Yuille's score-- and Thanks Adina.. you too ! :-)

This was also going on at one time next to our Fresco-ing-- Johnathan, who is running our Game Con in Aug ( which seems to be called JohnCon now per the google group nomenclature ) , was one of the people happily calling other people liars in this game I hope to learn soon.

The folks playing Braggart followed that storytelling card game with this card game I have on order-- it sure looks trippy with it's mighty-purty somewhat psychedelic artwork.

Again.. we didn't play this just a spot for my sum-up comments. I am very thankful for what good gaming we had tonight , and how I finally think I know Fresco well enough to TEACH it. ( Thanks again to Adina and Astro)

Also very glad to be able to have some plays under my belt of Organized Chaos so I can review it soon- thanks to Alex, Adina and LaDonn for playing this with me and giving me their insights to work into my review.

And thanks for all of this Meetups' dual organizer.. the folks who run B and B and SAGN, I get more stoked for JohnCon In August every week !

We played this next door, since we knew it was going to go past 11 if we stayed at the Tomato.

Richelieu is a two-player game by Michael Schacht (who made one of my favorites: China) This was my third time to play it. There was a lot to ponder during the first few plays, but then it seemed get more streamlined. It's an abstract game of set collection and area influence/control.

So Valerie, Dan and I found ourselves sprawled on the floor of a massive metal room aboard what can only be described as an alien vessel. I felt like I had BLACKED OUT. Venturing forth from captivity, it was every man for himself (sorry Valerie, no time for political correctness, I've got to get off this ship!). As I moved about the ship, searched for helpful items, and fending off alien guards on patrol, many random and debilitating EVENTS befell me. Just when I thought I was on the verge of escape, I'd wake up back in the HOLDING CELL stripped of all the ITEMS I had acquired.

Lots of chaos, screwage and probing. Avoid playing this game with those friends of yours who have large almond-shaped eyes and shimmery white skin!



Apparently this game cam be played at CCGWorkshop.com

Push your luck race game with a RALLY theme!!!

Rally Racing is a timed event so the game also uses a staggered start. This means those who start last have to wait a long time for their first turn which was a bit of a drag. Lots of dice rolling, taking short cuts, and dirt flying in the air!!!

Adina , La Donn, Alex and I ended our Fresco-ed evening with this clever and newly Indie-published game from Van Ryder Games. I actually WON! Sadly it seemed we were all gunning for Alex , perhaps due to his winning of Fresco by one point. I am anxious to get this to the table again as we played my first go round of this failing to follow an important card drawing rule that was all my fault.


Oops! My Bad ! yuk
