Better keep the day job!

Thanks Rob for hosting! I hope all goes well this morning!

I told my husband that I better keep my day job. I would never make it as an alien ship builder...sigh!

I can't make it tonight unfortunately. I'm meeting up with my realtor tonight.

So.... that means that I'd like to host tomorrow night (Wed 4/22). Same time and place. Let me know if you'd be interested.

Oh, and try this free online game out. Fights are automatic, but still pretty fun.

I am running a game of Blackbeard tomorrow night. And don't forget to go to Cafe Express tonight.

Gaming at San Jac....

Man, I wish they hosted gaming at noon every Saturday. I got there yesterday at 1230, and a few games were being played. I avoided a game of Power Grid to play something lighter. So I pulled out... drumroll... Fairy Tale! Yes the box is pink. Yes, it may not look very manly, but it is such a good filler. We played 2 games back to back.

Then I played San Juan and Roll through the Ages with Denise. I beat her by 1 pt in RTtA, but only because she didn't finish a 2 point monument before I ended the game.... so yeah, it doesn't feel much like a victory, but I'll take it (because winning so rare!). In San Juan, she beat me soundly (by 3 points?). It's makes for an excellent 2 player game.

Then I played 2 games of Pandemic. The game is a bit too easy on "Normal difficulty". Then we played "intermediate", and we did just as well. I think I'm ready to tackle the "Hardest" setting.

I ended the afternoon with a game of In the Year of the Dragon. I'm definitively a fan of the whole "damage control" mechanic.... the "cut your loses" mechanic while trying to expand, and score VP's.... I feel like I'm drowning the whole game. At no point do I feel overly powerful. That challenge is what brings me back to the game. Cool stuff.

gaming this week....

Can't host. Sorry. Working tonight, and Wed night. Must get some rest at some point.

I will be going to San Jac on Saturday since this is the weekend when it starts at noon. I am looking for gamers interested in trying out the new Blackbeard game. Let me know if you are interested.

Anyone have (or familiar with) Y's and Y's+ ? Just bought a used game and it seems to be short 5 character cards and checking the BBG site I am not the only one missing cards and I am wondering if it is a misprint in the rules. The rule book states 24 character cards ( 20 yellow and 5 blue), yet only describes 20 cards. I have all 20 cards.

The reason I am concerned is another used game I just bought was missing a card.
