Decided to have a weekend of gaming with some friends at a retreat in Northern California on Oct 7-9th 2011.

Made a little contest, 1 point for each win in a game where three or more people played. Ties resulted in no points. I feel like I'm forgetting some games. Please add or correct my list.

First time some of our group had played this. Of course on guy (Liam), had to play the trick where you take one card of each trick and watch the other players spin there wheels trading one card around.

When he was found out, I actually thought he was going to pass out from laughing so hard.

Trent won this game

This one ended like every other game of Supremacy I've played, old man Nuclear Winter. This was a bit more topical as Liam borrowed all the money from the bank to buy the nukes to make this happen.

This one was played twice. I think Trent one the first version of this with the wrong rule interpretations, so no point was awarded

It was played again and with the right rules, went from a 4 hour game to 45 minutes.
