Monday Gaming

At the end of the Saturday gaming, some people were making informal plans to meet at DL on Monday. I think they're talking about getting a game of Risk together, but I'm not sure. It may have been Monopoly. Comment inside if you can make it.

I should be there by around 1000 hours.

Have fun. Widh that I could be there. BTW - that is a nice looking RISK! set. I have the old one with the pained wooden blocks. I like those best.

I'll be there at the normal-ish time of around 6pm. I'm bringing Power Grid with the new power plant deck, and also have the Europe / Italy expansion board now... And there's always Race.

I'll be there at the normal time, with Race, Prophecy, and Game of Thrones.

Ben brought a $5 LotR trivia game and proceeded to torture Michael and I with it one nickel at a time. At least Jon arrived to inform Michael that any card that had Shadowfax in a speaking role wasn't the right answer.

I showed up just before 7pm to find Sean, alone, hemmed in between Go players and 40K mini painters. I rescued him with:

The short version (winner is first to two artifacts) plays like lightning with two -- minus setup and rules explanation, it barely ran an hour. I had the Mystic while Sean had the Paladin. I think melee characters have it hard in Prophecy -- Sean had several even fights early, while I had many at +2 or +3 (though I had to be selective with my targets). Despite the Mummy's "curse", I got a big lead in gear over Sean (Staff of the Archmagi & Magic Carpet versus his standard War Hammer), which turned me into an undead whacking machine. Still, he nearly stole the first artifact from me after an unlucky roll against its Greater Guardian.

Power Grid
We used the Italy map and the new plant deck, which felt...easier, for some reason. Maybe it's not the deck, but me finally not sucking at the game. Jon went north with wind and nuclear, I went central with coal and trash, and Sean went south with oil. I made a big mistake with two turns to go, building a 12th plant when I could only power 11, and unnecessarily putting myself last to build which allowed Sean to cut me off. I managed to power 17 on the last turn *to the dollar*, but Jon did the same with $38 still in the bank, while Sean sold out for 18 and fell a couple of plants short.

PS: Always use the "Preview" function.
