Over 30 gamers played 2 dozen different games at the library. I started early, but left before 9pm, so fill me in on the later games.

One of the advantages of arriving early was snagging John to help get a game of Cosmic Encounter going. With two n00bs we decided against Tech. I was happy to get Vulch (half of my fave killer combo of Mesmer/Vulch). The first battle was classic as I used a Shadow flare to hose the would be defenders, although John played another artifact to muddle things further. It was see-saw all the way as I managed to stymie John's mirror a couple of times, the Shadow picked off ships, and the Remora clung himself warp-free. When Adam played an Negotiate and all I had were Negotiates, we ended up w/ a shared win.

Davido-Vulch
Adam-Shadow
John-Mirror
???-Remora

Played twice, with Frank the ringleader both times. Frank one the first game. I know Rel was excited to get in on the second game after arriving just as game 1 concluded. Other players in either game were Adam, Stephen, and Ash.

Ash, Michael, Anna, and I played Ra. I got a good Civ/Pharoah boost in round 1 that I rode pretty much the whole way. I then held serve in round 2 w/ no losses, Pharoah lead, and 2 Gold (6 pts.). I tried to snag most money and w/ the 13 and 10 and 7 I thought I had it. Ash snagged that, along w/ some Nile/Floods, and monuments to steal the win.

I taught Michael and Anna this quick filler. I won the first round, Michael the 2nd. Anna lost round 1, and I lost round 2. Since he never lost a round, Michael was the cumulative winner.

And dang, has ANYONE other than Phil or myself actually READ the RL Stevenson classic wow

Played by MikeH, Anna, Darrel, and Mike. I got 3rd indigo and went for big buildings. I got Lg. Indigo, quarry, and Coffee in short order to get an engine going. Mike, Darrel, and Anna were the big shippers and MikeH had a hybrid strategy. I was able to get a factory to really leverage production/trade and a large warehouse to minimize the shipping flushes. Then it was on to the big buildings. I got Guild Hall, Residence and Fortress, but had to delay a turn to ensure being able to man the Fortress. I got 20 points in bonuses, but not enough to catch uber-shipper Mike.

We played the basic Eastern US map. The combo of Railroad Executive plus deliverable Raleigh/Lousiville service bounties made the opening bidding fierce. DavidM took off like a shot, but I still managed to snag the Lousiville bounty. I focused on the mid-west and was chugging along. I tried to sneak the NY-Chicago major line, but DavidM blocked me twice. I pulled it off by going around and into Toronto and Detroit but at a cost of shares and time better spent doing other useful things.

I've been wanting to play my fave Knizia auction game for a while. With DavidM doing the 'splainin we were off. I was definitely out of synch, but happy to be playing again. Hopefully w/ Scott, Jean, and Anna in the fold, it'll be easier to table on a regular basis.

You can't be too rich, to thin, or too scared as some folks just can't get enough of the macabre horrors. Aaron, Adam, Stephen, and Rel continued the long, slow, spiral, into madness and despair.
