Our esteemed leader came down with, um, yellow fever and was not able to make it to game night. But he was delirious enough to trust us at the arena with little supervision. I swear we didn't eat you hidden stash of snacks or rearrange your office set up. devil

Get well soon

! We missed you.

We had a "healthy" group of 9 this week: Alan, Brian, Christie, Chuck, Eric, Greg, John, Nick, and Todd. I've recorded the games I was involved in but feel free to add games you recorded as well.

Not sure of scores or how many times it was played, but I saw Alan, Chuck, John, and Nick playing this one when I got there. Though it is a fast game, I was only 5-10 minutes late so I assume only one game was played.

Yet another game night with 7 Leaders. This time we had all sophomores and seniors playing so we finally added Leaders in once again. There was a bit of a snafu with the Droid 7 Wonder scoring app and we inadvertently wiped out all Military scores. Give peace a chance! The revised scores are posted below:

66 pts. Christie The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
56 pts. Alan The Manneken-Pis of Brussels
52 pts. Nick The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
50 pts. Greg The Colossus of Rhodes
49 pts. Chuck The Lighthouse of Alexandria
48 pts. Brian The Great Pyramids of Giza
43 pts. John The Colosseum of Rome

Two more "wondered" in so we split up into two groups. Todd wanted to try Alhambra to see if a purchase was in store. Four of us returned to Islamic Spain to build the palace-fortress, Alhambra.

Christie (orange) 64 points
Brian (white) 123 points (it's like I should plan construction for a living!)
Alan (yellow) 92 points (carrying the yellow torch to mediocrity still!)
Todd (blue) 94 points

While waiting for the second group to finish their game, we grabbed this quick abstract. More tile-laying goodness, this time in 3-D.

Brian (white)
Alan (yellow)
Todd (red) WON by running out of tiles and having placed the most temples with the tower tie-breaker.
Christie (brown)

The 2nd group finished so we switched it up a bit as a some headed out early. Christie was game for one more so Alan recycled this one. Interesting "see saw" mechanic of placing cards, collecting them, and clearing them. I just didn't like how the game ended.

Alan 19 (who allegedly has experience picking through trash!)
Greg -8 (yes, that is a negative, he couldn't help but pick up a few things for himself, pack rat!)
Christie -1
Brian 4

John happily brought this one out so Nick and I could Learn it. I really enjoyed it. After an early lead by myself John and I ended up tying for first right after I bought a Dragon!

Todd 3 Glory
John 3 Glory
Chuck ?
Nick ?
Cant remember what you guys had let me know and I'll fix it.
