I recently played Evolution: Climate with Donald Trump and a few other people.

Trump made a first-turn carnivore. By the second turn, everyone else had defensive traits, and his carnivore went bankrupt extinct.

Early on, some of us played food cards with suns. I moved the climate marker. Trump objected on the grounds that there's no such thing as climate change. He ranted for a few minutes, but then acknowledged that it's just a game, and so could include things that real life doesn't.

Later in the game, one of the other players turned one of her species into a carnivore. It ate one of Trump's species. He called her a "nasty woman".

I reminded him that he'd started off with a carnivore. He denied it, and said that was yet another media smear.

I won't publish scores here, but I will note that Trump did not win. He claimed that the game had been rigged. But he did like some things about Evolution, and might be persuaded to play one of the versions without the climate track.

That's about as much as I can remember, and have time to report now. If you were also there, please share your recollections of our game with Trump.

I believe this should have been posted in the Sessions forum. Can a mod move it so we can make the forums great again?

I didn't post it under Sessions, since a mod might doubt that it really happened...

How about a move to RSP. I come here to get away from politics.

Chris,
Good point. I'd rather it stayed here, and it seems to have been welcomed with some quick thumbs (and a little gold - thank you!).

But of course that's a mod call.

If I write a "Game With Hilary" story I won't post it here. (But it writes itself! She seems to be getting good card draws, but is in fact dealing herself cards from a private deck! She scores more points than any other player, but still loses!)

If I write a story about religion and Evolution: Climate, I won't post it here. I won't write a story about sex and Evolution: Climate.

When I played Migratory on my species, Trump exclaimed, "That better not be a Mexican animal species, or it won't be able to migrate past my border wall/fence without the Flight expansion."

Trump loves the Herbivores because he once played a point salad.

I was there also and think you might have this a little wrong. If you'll recall, Trump didn't have the most points but he still won. Nobody at the table really understood why but when he explained that "I know games, i have the best games" it all made sense.

I'm surprised you also forgot to mention that when he was transitioning the pieces back into the box Trump set the whole thing on fire.

Other player's species adopted chameleon like qualities but Trump's species remained the one same colour. Sad.

If we're going to poke fun, I'd rather it be accurate. Actually Trump did win according to the rules as written, but almost everyone playing the game misunderstands the rules and claims we should play with different ones.

Edit - Also totally agree this belongs in RSP.

Hillary was playing too but obviously nobody else playing was aware of who she really is.

Ben Carson played as well. When it came to his turn, he stared at the board for minutes and everyone thought he had severe AP.

Actually he'd fallen asleep.

George W. also played and, like Trump, he insists on playing with the expansion titled 'electoral college'. The expansion adds some randomness and luck.

...and the whole game we all wondered who had invited these people and where was our real gaming group? Had our Meetup.com group really degraded as far as this!?

Until the next meetup, I think I'll stay here in Shanghai.
