I'm your Huckleberry
Dennis and Scott showed up early for gaming, so we broke out
Jon showed up, so we played a few hands of Bridge while waiting for Jacqui to arrive. Then we broke out Puerto Rico. Amazingly (to me), Scott had never played before and Dennis had only played a few times. I've played, uh, more. Discounting my steroid inflated score, Jacqui won. Actually, the game was really close until I got to call the Penultimate Craftsman at a time when it meant that I could monopolize the few remaining tobacco barrels, and swipe half the corn. As Captain had already been called, that set me up for the next round's Captain phase for a sweet score (9 unblockable points).
Then came a close game of Stage II, where Dennis (following the standard Dennis Handicapping rules) failed to win. John also managed to get a category, and not just a Boo-urns one, either.
After that we closed with the federally-mandated game of Race. I think Dennis won. After his loss at Stage II and my loss at Race, we retreated back to our respective bunkers to await Armageddon.
