I am the GM for Chicago Express at the Prezcon Convention held annually in Charlottesville, VA. I decided to take notes and provide a session report on the final.

There were 17 unique players, spread over three heats with 4 winners (one player won in two different heats). I was hoping for a better turnout, but Fridays heat was scheduled at the same time as both Settlers and Ticket to Ride which are still popular games. Anyway on to the session report.

Players (in seat order):
Paul
Phillip (hereafter Phil, for brevity)
Mike
Jessica (Jess, also for brevity)

Seating was random, by card draw. Paul drew the #1 seat and would open the bidding.

seeing the share payouts without the players incomes makes tracking the game progress a little difficult for me. MY 2 cents.
