To celebrate my 35th, I decided to clean the whole house. Then I invited a bunch of people to spread drink cans, and dirty paper plates throughtout the living room and kitchen area, as well as using up a sizable portion of my toilet paper. But what a great time I had. Thanks to all who attended!

So it started off with four of us Tim, Beth, Carl and I. Tim and Beth had brought me a gift...Who's the ass. So we ripped off the cellophane and went to town. I Think Beth won. This wasn't a bad game, and will hit the table again. If I grab another set, I've got a dalmuti deck as well.

We were still waiting for more people to show up, so we pulled out this one. For some reason I can never draw good tiles for my opening hand, and this one was no exception, at the start up I had nothing connected. I still did well, only needing a blue country to go out, when Beth completed her 10 days.

Joy showed up, and we decided to pull out something a little meatier, and we ended up with this one. As usual overbidding was the killer for most of the players. Beth continued her winning ways and tied with me for the win...If only I could have managed to drop a trade office in the East Indies!

Two others showed up, and it was time for a little of this. This is a great filler game, and a gentle introduction for Cristina and Jasmine, who had never played designer games before. After all was said and done, Cristina and tim emerged victorious.

Micah and Jamal arrived and it was time to split into two games. One game was Hare and Tortise. Jamal, Cristina, Jasmine, Joy, and I played this. Jasmine won, followed closely by Joy and I, Jamal was a carrot hoarder, and had well over 150 carrots towards the end of the race, not a great spot to be in. Meanwhile on the kitchen table....

Tim, Beth, Carl, and Micah were playing this. This seemed to be an intense affair, as not a peep emerged from the table. There was no response to Melissa and Chase(Wife and Son) showing up..bringing my second game gift of the day... Shadows over Camelot! Beth handily won 11 cubes to the next highest of 8. Beth was a steamroller this day.

Now we had the nine needed for Werewolf We played four sessions, the werewolf winning three times and Villagers winning once. The best moment is when Micah started off a round by pointing at Jasmine and Melissa, declaring them completely innocent, and accusing Tim of being the werewolf. Of couse he was completely wrong, as Jasmine and Melissa were the werewolves. Poor Carl and Tim couldn't seem to stay alive.

This wasn't Facts in Five, but rather my dad's trivia game, This went over very well, but I still can't believe none of the dummies could name two stars from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. But I'm not bitter. Tim handily won both games, with his tailored questions to his wife, maybe Beth will bite him the ass by "missing" one next time. This is a great trivia game. Even for those I hate trivia games people.

The trivia game spelled the end of the night for Several people, Micah, Cristina, Jasmine, and Melissa wasn't feeling well. So the rest of the hard core gamers played this. Finally! I've been wanting to play this for about 6 months. We did fairly simple Koans, and it was everything I thought it would be. Loved it! Around 11:30 The house was empty, and trash gathering began. Thanks to all who attended, I had a great b-day party. Hope to see you all next year.
