Germantown 03/30/2009

Attendance on this, the 5th Monday of the month.

  • Aubrey & Shannon Bell
  • Dave & Martha Briggs
  • Dave Fair
  • Todd Heidenreich
  • Doug Hoylman
  • Bob & Ben Jones
  • Nathaniel Klinger
  • Carol Loman
  • Mike Mullins
  • Tiffany, Chris, Alidia & Clarisa
First up was Drive. Unfortunately no specific records were kept but Carol won with Dave F close behind, then Doug and then Mike.

When Ben and I arrived, Chris, Tiffany, Alidia and Clarisa were playing the dungeon-crawl game, Drakon. Tiffany mastered the dungeon with 10 points, Alidia and Clarisa tied with 6 and Chris with 3.

Metro made it to the table for the first time in a while. Players built sections of the Paris Metro while trying to foil their opponents. Final scores were Mike 58, Doug and David B tied at 48, followed closely by Martha at 45.

With a large group still waiting, we broke out the six player filler, Cheeky Monkey. Final scores were Carol 25, Shannon 21, Dave F 13, Ben 12, Bob 9 and Aubrey 4.

Dave got a group together to play his current favorite, Battlestar Galactica. Aubrey and Todd turned out to be the Cylons while Tiffany was the Sympathizer. This left the Humans, Dave F, Carol and Nathaniel in bad shape. The game was called as a Cylon victory when the store closed before the end. It was pretty clear that the Humans were toast.

Tiffany and Chris asked for some family games they might enjoy, so with Shannon's help I taught Ticket to Ride to Alidia, Chris, and Clarisa. I thought I had it won but once again failed to account for Shannon who is VERY good at this game. Scores were Shannon 126, Bob 118, Christopher 96, Alidia 88 and Clarisa 31 (she missed some of her tickets).

Another game of Ticket to Ride broke out with the more experienced players. Estimates of their final scores were Doug 143, Dave B 137, Mike 119 and Martha 115.

Ben taught Alidia one of his favorites, the two player Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation and they played two games in a row. After a fierce struggle, Alidia won both games.

Finally, I played the fun filler, Tiki Topple with Shannon, Christopher and Clarisa. Clarisa walloped us, 31 to Christopher 18, Shannon 9 and me a pathetic 7.
