This was our most well attended meet-up in my memory. We had a total of 33 people attend. The Sacramento board game scene is just heating up. One of our regulars just had a game night at his house on 7/30. We now have a board game night at least once a week, with an event at the Arden-Dimick library on the 3rd Wednesday. Now, we also have a regular Saturday game day, also at the Arden-Dimick library, the first of which will be Aug. 20. For more information on board gaming events around Sacramento, go to either http://boardgames.meetup.com/19/ or http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/sacboardgames/

Anyone else who attended, please feel free to add comments about the games played.

My son, David M. (dlminsac), and I were the early arrivals. David wanted to play this game, which he had not yet had a chance to play. It was a tight game with David and I going back and forth. When the final points were counted, I emerged the winner.

Greg (Gregsacto), Kevan, Sean, and Amber were the next arrivals. After that, I was not able to keep track on the order of arrivals or the names.

Jim, Phil, and 2 or 3 others played this game. I heard it was a close game, with the winner having a margin of 4 points on second place.

This was the second game David and I played, with Caira, Derrick, and Jon joining us. I enjoyed this game, but played very poorly, avoiding last place by only one point. David emerged with the victory.

The group playing Fluxx then played this favorite party game. I think some of the SuperMunchkin players, including my son, may have joined this game.

The last game I played, with Phil and 3 others, whose names I don't recall. I was in contention for longest route, before I made a big tactical error, building a 6 route out of Ste. Sault Marie before building the 2 route that would have connected to my existing routes. Then, to try to save my position, I drew tickets, with the only one that I had a chance to complete being Los Angeles to Chicago. However, I was thwarted from completing that one, also. With two tickets that I failed to complete, I was the only one who finished negative in tickets, finishing in last place. I enjoy this game, but have yet to successful be competitive playing it.
