With twenty players, a lot of games get played . . .

I don’t know anything about Castle for All Seasons but it seems to be getting some buzz. Dave 73, Bill 72, Doug M 65, Aubrey 27.

Likewise, I’ve never played Bombay. Click on the link for more information. Final scores: Leslie 39, Eric 27, Laura 21, Carol 21, Doug H 20.

With Bless looking for something to play, Ethan and Nathaniel kindly taught him Small World. Alas, they didn’t get to finish the game before Bless had to leave.

A quick game of Go Nuts gave Clarisa the victory over Tiffany, 40 to 19.

Since they enjoy Zooloretto, I thought I’d show the Findlay-Bass family the simpler card game from which it was developed, Coloretto. My experience gave me an edge for the victory. Bob 24 Tiffany 20, Clarisa 16, Chris 15, Alidia 14.

Ben played a rotating game of Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation with Liberty and Love. No info on who won or lost.

With ten people available, we broke into two groups. One group played Masons and had the unusual situation of only creating 1 smallish city during the game with only 3 scoring rounds. (see pic) Remarkable. Scores were Eric 56, Doug H 48, Leslie 36, Bill 27.

Meanwhile, I brought out a game based on the sport of kings, inbreeding, I mean horseracing, Royal Turf! In a very close game, Chris came on strong in the third race to just squeak ahead for the victory. Chris 2100, Bob 2050, Clarisa 1750, Tiffany 1100, Martha 1100, Dave B 750.

Another game of Go Nuts was played in which Chris crushed us while I appear to have been absent. Chris 54, Clarisa 40, David B 20, Bob 17.

Ethan proved to be the cheekiest monkey in Cheeky Monkey. Ethan 19, Leslie 18, Doug H 16, Ben 15, Alidia 13, Nathaniel 8.

A full game of Small World was played with Carol crushing Dave F and Aubrey. Scores were Carol 134, Dave 82, Aubrey 75.

Ethan, Leslie, Doug and Nathaniel brought out the classic push-your-luck dice game, Can't Stop. Nathaniel won.

Finally, Dave F. Aubrey, Leslie, Martha, David B and Bob played a quick hand of Monty Python Fluxx. Dave F won.

Whew! What a night!
