Had a ton of people, had a great time, and looking forward to next month. One thing I love about our group, besides the people of course (thanks for coming everyone!), is that we play the newest stuff and some classics like Ra, Bohnanza, and El Grande.

Gamer of the Month: Todd McCorkle 2.40

After playing this the other night as a two player game, I was excited about giving the Conquest Blitz scenario a chance, after the Reconnaissance scenario was decent. I was disappointed. We played 4 hours to finish the game, were in the rules the entire time, and still aren’t positive we did things completely right. Jeremy ended up taking out the Blue City all by himself and razing 3 monasteries, which gave him the victory. Both Jack and I got held up in the Red City, but eventually took it down on the last turn. We did one and only PvP action the last turn when I attacked Jack. But, I just realized, I’m not even sure that was legal, since we new it was the last turn of the game. Either way, I don’t think it would’ve changed the results of the game.

Jeremy S – 96
Jack – 75
Adam – 66

Clint absolutely spanked us on this one. He scored 21 points every scoring round with Green and we weren’t ever able to rest control from him on that. Both Jeremy and I attempted to get it from him, but just couldn’t. In the last round there were no Red family members available, which also sealed the win in that category for him. I’m still really liking this one, despite never winning.

Clint – 139

Right away I took Commando Ratmen and expanded out as quickly as possible, seeing the Cursed Orcs coming up. I was then attacked 7 times before another human player was attacked, which set me back early. However, I declined turn 2 and picked up Underworld Elves, which were right before the Cursed Orcs. Eventually, as the game progressed, both Jeremy with his Giants that got slayed and Clint with Kobolds that ran out of room, went in decline a couple times putting a total of 12 points on the Orcs. I couldn’t resist that and went into decline with my Elves, taking the 12 points and getting a few extra from the Orcs.

This is another game of the year contender. It won’t be getting my vote, but as it is seeing continued play in the group, I’m guessing others will vote for it.

Some inventions were made. In the middle of this game Brian had to leave quickly. He got a phone call his dad had fell of a roof. Thankfully, I got a text later on from him saying the injuries aren’t life threatening. Our prayers are with your father Brian!

This is becoming a monthly tradition of Todd slaughtering someone in Dominion. I’m guessing he used the City to his advantage.

Even though Bohnanza isn’t the greatest game, I had a blast playing this tonight. I was wheelin’ and dealin’ like all get out. At one point Anna was evening dealing for me in order to return a couple early game favors! Things like, “I like your beard. I’ll give you more than a promise, I’ll give you a handshake. And “I don’t want to flip a card over, because I know the extreme noise I’m going to get from this side of the table” were all said and fun. Jeremy M did well with some Coffee bean harvests to get the victory.

Todd wanted the story circulated that he doubled both his opponent’s points. We’ll also circulate that Todd once scored 4 points in Ra, a game you start with 10 points. 

There were comments like, “Kevin, you could be my father” coming from this table. I think that flustered Kevin and that is how they beat him, since he obviously has great experience in running a Chinese province for the Emperor.
