Middletown 08/31/07

Seventeen gamers gathered in Middletown for the best gaming they could find... This summary is going to be rather abbreviated, both because I am late, and because I have another one to write...

In attendance:

  • Scott & Carly Fisher
  • Scott Fox & Judy & Kayla Trent
  • David, Noreen, Corwin & Andrew Fair
  • Bryan Snyder
  • Jason Cheng
  • John Weber
  • Tom McCorry
  • Wade Hyatt
  • Raphael Lehrer
  • Marshall Miller
  • Steve Lollis
First was a 6 player game of Metro. Bryan was able to leave a pawn on until late, and score well with it to secure his win (36 points) over Scott Fox (35), Kayla (25), Judy (23), Jason (21), and Carly (18).

The new game Cash-A-Catch was next, with Tom (the only player who had played before) winning (112) over Scott Fisher (75), newcomer Wade Hyatt (73) and John Weber (53).

Noreen managed another Can't Stop victory, this time in a game with 5 players. Her opponents were Jason, Kayla, Carly, and Bryan.

Raphael, David, Judy, and Scott Fox headed to Thebes next, to play the new, and very popular, Queen game. Dave was the only experienced player, but it did little to help him as Scott and Judy tied for the win with 59 points each. Dave (52) settled for third, and Raphael (48) played cleanup.

Off to the races with Royal Turf. Bryan was a shrewd bettor and managed to win with a tidy sum ($2,950), followed by Jason ($2,350), Carly ($2,000), and Marshall ($500).

The Thebes crowd next played Phoenicia, another new game, this time based on Outpost, but a bit quicker... Raphael won (40) as the others learned the game. David (31) came in second, Judy (30) third, and Fox (29) fourth. At least it was close among the newbies...

A 5-player game of Imperial was next, with John earing 130 for the victory, followed by Tom (104), Steve (103), Scott Fisher (100) and Wade (70).

Go Read Bear! the players cried in Honeybears. Raphael won with 119, followed by John (1010, Jason (95), Tom (94), and Scott Fisher (74).

Finally, a 4-player game of ShowManager. I have never played with less than six, and did not realize that you use dummy players... Interesting. Jason (51) managed the win, followed by Tom (41), Scott Fisher (40), John (37), and Thing 1 & Thing 2 (27 & 24).

See you next month!
