Great turnout again, and again welcome to our noobs!
(Remember you're only a noob once)

Scored a win in Granada (sweeeeet).
I seem to have better luck with that one than alhambra.

Then we learned Suburbia.
I think there is a good game there BUT:
- You need to score using the same 'thought procedure' each time (Bill figured out this one.)
- It needs to be taught via process - i.e. set up the game and display a sample round.

I came in dead last (20 points behind 3rd) but I think there is something there.

See you in 14!

Well after not having been for a while we attended and met Olaf who led us in a successful win in Pandemic. Managed to cure all those pesky diseases without things getting *too* out of control.

Afterward, Dave, Erica, and I showed Olaf the ropes to Eminent Domain. Olaf is a good learner as he posed quite a threat with a huge fleet taking over planet turn after turn, but Erica managed to eke out a win at the end thanks to a fortuitous buy of one of the last research cards. All in all one of the best games of AD we'd played.

Was that Pandemic set with original pieces or did you have special ones?

It was Olaf's reprint so slightly different than the original (i.e. clear bits, two new roles, etc.).
