Germantown 09/03/07

It was Labor day, and many of us took the chance to play more games, and longer games, starting earlier than usual. An abbreviated report, since I am so late...
In attendance:

  • Bill Salvatore
  • Doug Hoylman
  • Mike Charbonneau
  • Mark Toigo
  • Rick Pasquale
  • David Fair
  • Doug Hoylman
  • Jason Cheng
  • Eric Reinhold
  • Laura Reinhold
  • Leslie Barkley
  • Kevin Bealer
  • David Briggs
  • Martha Briggs
First up was Power Grid, with Bill taking the win by building to 15. His opponents were Mike (14), Mark (13) and Rick (13).

David joined Eric, Jason, and Doug for a game of Blue Moon City. Doug won with 4 cubes in the Temple, to Eric's 2, and Dave & Jason's 1 each. A well-played game for Doug.

David, Martha, and Laura played Zooloretto. It was Laura's first playing, but she nevertheless managed a shrewd victory, 38 points to Martha's 31, and David's 26.

Another game of Thebes for David, this time with Eric, Jason, and Doug. Doug had some great digs and solid strategy, winning 66 points to Jason's 47, Eric's 46, and Dave's 45.

The same group followed up with the quick filler High Society. Doug was eliminated by virtue of having spent too much money, leaving Eric with a 6-point win, followed by Dave with 4, and Jason with 0. A surprise ending...

Mark, Bill, Rick and Mike finished their game of Colosseum, with Mark taking a come-from-behind victory of 83 points, followed by Bill (70), Rick (69) and Mike (62). Rick managed to win 4 podiums during the game, but could not sustain things for the final round.

Next, our adventurous players tried a 5-player game of Qwirkle. Leslie won (81) over Kevin (76), David (75), Laura (71), and Martha (43).

David Fair, Jason and Leslie played Tigris & Euphrates, Leslie for the first time. It was very close, with David winning (13, 13, 13, 14) over Jason (12, 12, 12, 13) and Leslie (12, 13, 15, 19) who had more red tiles than I have ever seen in one players hand in one game.

Taluva was next, and it ended when David built all his Huts and his Towers, rather than as normal on the last tile draw. Leslie had 2 Temples and 2 Huts remaining, while Jason had 1 Temple, 1 Tower, and 5 Huts.

last up was a game of Caylus that was not able to be finished. The scores were close as the game was called, but it looked as though Kevin might build a Prestige Building, and Eric was about to get 2 favors and a Mess O' Gold, so who knows what would have happened...

See you in September!

Actually, there was only one Doug Hoylman in attendance.

Jason and I played Jambo while the Power Grid game was in progress. His first time. I won, didn't record the score. Can't think of anything else you missed.
