... however, Anne brought cookies and Baklava. Yummy!

I know I missed at least two games that were played on Brian's table, so please add them to the list.

(Someone left some games at one of the tables. I have them. Send me a note via geekmail with the list of games, and I will contact you to give them back.)

Ryan taught me how to play this. I liked the mechanics, not so much the drab colors on the cards.

We went around the island planting crops and forcing each other to work the canals in the right direction. Marty won, and it was his first game. Ben was a close second. Ryan and myself were back there, and Scott who made a lot of numbers somehow ended up last!

After fooling around trying to figure out what to play we ended up pulling the old trusty Citadels. Game went good, and I got the victory! Victoria sat down I think two hands at the very end to replace Scott who had to leave early. For a five player game it moved really good. I really should play this more.

A fun thing about this was that Ben bowed out because he really dislikes the game. He was going to go home, but a couple minutes later showed up back (he did not play still). He remembered he wanted to avoid the crowd of "Trick or Treaters". Ben is to Halloween what The Grinch is to Chrismtas!

We played another session. I definitely liked flying the Sopwith a ton more than I do the Spad. This one had much better maneuverability and could also pull the speed of the Spad while climbing faster. Still, I managed to get shot down because I kept trying to chase Tim.

I wanted to like this game, but the luck of the draw on the damage cards really bothers me. I am sure I would play this two player anytime, but I think four player is not as engaging. Even though I got shot down in the last fight with Tim, I think I got to do some interesting flying then as compared to the rest of the campaign (we pulled about 5 or 6 turns in 15 or so minutes).

Victoria, John and Eric played the demo copy. I joined them after our Wings of War game and played a hand. It is a decent filler, but strategy is out the door when some of the cards allow you to trade goals with others. You may win ... if someone does not take your goal from you when you are one card away from victory!

I half remembered the rules, and half made them up on the go. I like this game and I think it was a good choice to close the night. Marty won because the first boast for the hunt went waaaaaay overboard and he was the only nay-sayer. He got 20 points, I think the next ones in line were Victoria and Me with 13.

This is probably better with more people, but five played pretty good.

Later played this with Brian as well. Good chit-pusher, although I got irritated when the randomly changing objective values assigned massive VPs to Brian's most well-defended building. Fortunes of war, indeed!

Almost forgot about the 5-player Seven Wonders game. I won, bit of a surprise when Brian had a 23-point science meld on the table.
