Carcassonne - Andrew W. Andrew B., Charles and Craig:
Andrew B. was looking to try out his new copy of Carcassonne and it wasn't terribly hard to scare up interest in this game. Despite my penchant for giving Dave B. a hard time about his love affair with the game, I do think it is a very good game and perfect as an opener.
The battle of the Andrew's was on as both seemed to score points early and often. I'm not sure, but I think that maybe the loser had to change his name. Andrew W. was better positioned in the end with more farmers in the right place and scooped the win. Andrew B. must now find a new unique name for future game sessions. Charles and I managed to share last place. This was one of the lower scoring games of Carcassonne I have seen and I'm not sure I have a good explanation why.
