Summer is here. It is hot and sticky. No more rain. People are on vacation or attending conventions or paying penance at home for having done those things.

The gaming is hot also. Six can make quite a fire.

Attending:

Michael H
Chris C
Matt D
Kathy D
Rob M
Paul Mc.

Matt managed to convince a load of noobs/near noobs to play this with him. Much evil and deceit occurred.

The humans (Chris, Rob, and Kathy) defeated the Cylons (Matt and Michael). It was very close, but there was no cigar for the cyborgs.

Chris and Michael opened with a game of this one. We both agreed we could have played for hours, though I would not want the same results for hours.

Chris won
Michael lost

Rob was the only noob at the table. He was the rat.

Chris 12
Kathy 9
Rob 8
Michael 7

Yep, the losers were close; just not close to the winner.

This one is starting to hit the table now as the decathlon looms. Chris and Rob were noobs to it.

Game 1

Chris -11
Kathy -8
Rob -12
Michael -14

Kathy spanked our collective butts.


Game 2

Chris -20 (he had a crapload of pieces remaining)*
Rob -20 (he also had a crapload of pieces remaining)*
Kathy -18 (she had nearly a crapload of pieces remaining)*
Michael -9 (I suppose this would be half of a nearly crapload, but enough to win)*

They allowed me to get to the middle of the board and block off an area the size of Alaska and another the size of Texas.



* crapload is a technical term. Chris and Rob's scores were metric craploads. Kathy's was an imperial crapload.

The Mexico map was used for this one. I think Matt was a noob and Paul nearly so. It's not a pretty sight when no one knows the game.

Paul 78
Matt 70

Obviously we could only muster 6 wonders. This wonder wonders what the other wonders were wondering when they played.

Rob 39
Chris 50
Paul 43
Kathy 41
Matt 47
Michael 53


Paul and Kathy thwarted Matt's science bid. Rob was dead in the water as Chris and I only pass crap.

The evening ended with a rousing full board, no holds barred, eye popping, knock down, drag out horse race. Chris and Michael were the only ones who had played this one.

Paul $1,850
Chris $1,650 (no tiebreaker)
Michael $1,650 (no tiebreaker)
Rob $600
Kathy $1,300
Matt $1,050


Rob kept betting on the horses that lost.
