>Game Night, May 17, 2007

>In attendance were Thomas, John, Josh, Marcus, Brian, Scott, Anna, Ted (after a long absence) and joining us were Whitney and Trish and of course myself.

Starting off, Whitney, Scott, Anna and Brian played The Game of Real Life
, while Trish, Ted and John played Settlers of Catan, and finally Josh, Thomas and I played Settlers of the Stone Age.

Marcus did not play a game right off the bat and sat out on the three that were going on.

The Game of Real Life ended earlier than the other two games with Scott wining, after that the same group played a game of Cluzzle which according to most accounts Anna was victorious.

I the time it took that group to play two games, the other two groups continued with there game with finally Thomas wining Settlers of Stone Age and Trish wining Settlers of Catan.

After, Whitney, Scott and Anna left for the evening leaving Brian, Marcus, Trish, Ted and John playing a game of Ticket to Ride.

At the same time Josh, Thomas and myself played a game of RA.

Both game took about the equal amount of time to play with Josh wining RA and Ted wining Ticket to Ride.

Just one side note, This was my fifth play of RA, and I’m just now starting to see all the layers this game has, on the surface appears to be a very simple auction game but it contains much more depth, and complexity that is only apparent after several plays.

I want to thank everyone for coming to game night and I hope that you all had a really great time.

Just a reminder, I will be on vacation next week so game night is cancelled for the 24th and 30th.

However it will be back on June 7th.

>Game Night, May 10, 2007

>Game Night had arrived again. In attendance were Marcus, Alan, Anna, Brian, Scott, Thomas, Michael, Andrew, Josh (and his little daughter), myself and after a long absence John.

The previous Monday had been had been Thomas’ birthday and so John had brought a cake for us all to share (thank you very much John), (and Happy Birthday Thomas).

Well last week Scott had requested a game of Marvel Heroes and earlier this week
Anna had emailed me that she wanted to play Fury of Dracula.

So we split into three groups, Scott, Thomas, John and myself playing Marvel Heroes. I had played this once before but this was the first time for all the others.

Anna, Brian, Alan, Michael and Andrew playing Fury of Dracula. Anna and Brain had played this previously but this was the first time for all the others.

Marcus, Josh and Josh’s daughter playing Cluzzle.

The game of Cluzzle is fairly short so that game finished much earlier than the other two, and I don’t know who won that game. After Josh had to get home to put his daughter to bed and Marcus left early also.

The Fury of Dracula ran long, till about 11:00 pm, from what I’m told it was coolly received which is a disappointment since usually we have a really good time with that one, Anna had played Dracula and the other players beat her (though she said near the end she was being reckless).

Our game of Marvel Heroes was the last to finish, at approximately 12:45 am (boy am I tired today), but we had a really great time. The first hour of the game was a little tense since it was taking a while for everyone to catch on, but finally when that did it was a blast. Scott won the game breaking a tie with John, after I had 5 points detected in my last turn. (really have to play this again!)

Oh and Alan had brought some Baklava (thanks Alan!!!)

I want to thank everyone for come to game night and I hope to see you next week!!!!!

>Game Night, May 3, 2007

>In attendance was Alan, Marcus, Brian, Scott, Andrew, Michael, Josh and Myself.

Marcus, Josh, Scott and Michael started the evening off with a game of Lifeboats, which ran much shorter than the first game the group played a few weeks ago. Scott was the winner of that game. Then that same group played a game of RA, which Michael won.

In the time it took those guys to play two games we played one game of Starfarers of Catan, this was the second time, Alan and Brian had played and first time for Andrew and I, we all really enjoyed the hell out of this one, and in the end I came out on top and won the game.

Thanks everyone for attending and I hope to see you all next week.

p.s. Scott made a request to play Marvel Heroes game, lets see if that get done.
