Last week was on first session in awhile and also the first time we had Joe
Engalan attending. I arrived late to find Don, Mark, and Joe playing "Where
is Bob's hat?". It soon became apparent Don was winning, which he usually
does when he is playing a game for the first time. It also became apparent
that Mark was far behind Joe and Don. Mark suggested to Joe that they put
out the -10 hat and try to stick Don with it. They put the -10 Bob's hat
alright but Mark kept getting stuck with it instead. Mark tried a new
strategy, whining. And he did a great job. Don, and Joe were roaring with
laughter. Mark score rebounded and Don's run away patch slowed allowing Joe
to catch up and win. We then played Vinci which took longer but we were all
taking turns pulling into the lead. Don this time was the one having the
hard time. Towards the end of the game Don started to catch up, and it
became apparent that Joe was the leader. The final score had Joe and I tied
for first at 120 and Mark and Don tied for second at 96. the timing out when
to let a civilization go into decline proved to be critical in the end. I do
not know what we play this week, maybe Roborally will come out.
