Let's see ... you have seven gamers who all want to be in one game together as opposed to splitting into two or more groups. Time is a consideration, as no one wants to become embroiled in a 2 hour plus marathon. What game do you choose? With our group, the choice is usually Bruno Faidutti's Ohne Furcht und Adel.
Jim, Joey, Keith, Erin, Dave, Bill and Tabea were the town builders. With folks such as Joey involved, it was sure to be a violent affair. Joey's notes consisted of the final scores and ratings, plus this one brief passage:
"Joey begins a campaign of violent civic protest. Jim-town burns for three days!"
Well, apparently the destruction of Jim's town wasn't devastating enough, as Jim captured the victory:
Jim 34, Bill 31, Keith 31, Dave 27, Joey 25, Erin 22, Tabea 15
Ratings: Dave 9, Jim 9, Erin 8, Keith 7.5, Tabea 7, Joey 7, Bill 6
