Day Game Attendance: Kris,
Glenn, Maksim, Chris, Scott McDonald, Ray and Mark Indiveri
Evening: Matt and Karen
Hoskins, Bob Owen, Lisa, Mark McDonald, Diana
Menu: hamburgers and the
fixings, Bob's duck and deer liver
Kris ran Battlestations
scenario "First Contact." This scenario couldn't have been playtested
well. The rules seem pretty clear that the players really need to guess
the "Rosetta Stone word" out of all the words and that's near
impossible. Reasonable changes to the scenario would be to let the
players win if they can broadcast any word or if there were many fewer
missiles. We finished the scenario and started the scenario "Showdown,"
which is a straight fight and better balanced.
DBA: Mark Indiveri's Pyrrhic Greeks vs. Kris' Early Viking in a anachronistic
match. Mark was sweating for a while but his knights finally got into
the Viking rear area and killed their general.
Starfarers of Catan: Matt,
Karen (the winner), Lisa, Mark McDonald, Scott, Ray (replaced by Kris
after DBA game finished)
