Who wears the pants?

Game night! Michael showed up and we got in a quick game of Roma. Michael got a full board early, but was down to 2VP. His gladiators knocked all of my characters off, leaving me with a forum. Still, he started one turn (and me with 7 VP), so all I needed was a doubles, which would let me steal his last two VP ... but then he played ... the Legat (gain 1 VP for each empty slot). D'oh! Game quickly over.

Simon and Dayna had arrived, so we decided to break out Smarty Party. It's a flawed game, but fun. (If only the question cards were a bit better balanced/researched...). We played a few games, and then it was Marklin, Cash n' Guns, some more Smarty Party, and then the wind down with Geschenkt!.

Signature moment (for me, anyway) . As an unwounded Huggy Bear in the last round, I get all three people pointing at me. (And I wasn't even winning!). I don't withdraw, so that I can at least shoot Simon (who is winning). But no, I get "Bang Bang Bang"ed ... and shot twice more for the elimination! Ah Huggy, we hardly knew ye. Tino (Simon) laughs all the way to the bank.

Absolutely. As much of a fan of party games as I am, I find this one unplayable because of the nonsensical (and sometimes outright wrong) answers. Even a free pair of rubber pants isn't quite enough to save it.

Can't wait for Cash N Guns to be printed on this side of the "lake".
