The bigger the group the bigger the chacne you will have duplicate names. We have had multiple Marks, Multiple Travises, Multiple Dereks, and probably others on game nights.

Tonight we welcome Brian. Since I'm the one writing this geeklist I will refer to him as "new Brian". "Brian" without any additional qualifications refers to myself. (there is also Brian B who showed up for a couple of game nights)

We also welcome back original/founding member John, and Nancy who normally can't make it during the school year but had Friday off.

Regardless of your name, you are welcome to attend. We meet most weeks and have a game day most months. Our info is at http://www.boardgames.meetup.com/495

There was some talk of Axis and Allies, but that didn't happen.
Kudos to Mandi for trying this game even though she finds the computer annoying. I know at least one play was "analog".

This was also Derek's fisrt play - he liked it a lot. Old hands Jace, B'ney, Cole and Joe joined in.

We were looking for a game for new Brian - who has played Settlers so isn't complete new to strategy games. Kevin suggested "Gridlock" and Barb taught.

Bill claimed it was his fisrt play, but given the way he was playing we think he was hustling us, and was secretly a playtester.

Unlike on game day, at least I came sort of close:
Bill 8
Kevin 7 (wins ore tiebreaker)
Mark 7
Brian 6 (new to Bill so I can still claim teaching)

New iteration of Kevin's "Public Enemy #1".

The Hooch Run, unlike other crimes that require 3 sucessfull rolls, only requires one. Plus one can set the reward as high as $40,000 / share.

So that is what I did
1st run - some other crime
2nd run - $2000 on hooch run, 5 shares $10,000
3rd run - $10,000 on hooch run, 4 shares, $40,000
4th run - $40,000 on hooch run 4 shares $160,000

Kevin will be adjusting the difficulty up and limiting the award amount.

This was the fisrt time PE#1 was finished (12 crimes). So now I can say I am the WORLD CHAMPION and record holder for Public Enemy #1 meeple

Brian $185,500
Andy $23,700
Barb $23,000
Kevin $5,600
