SR: B2O x2
- I've had the notes lying around for a while and figured I'd get the session
reports out before we went I added a third round of B2O to the list
tommorrow. I'm not sure how informative these will be with such a time lag,
but I'll do my best.

Comments on games I played...
MONEY: After a brief exposure to Money at Andrews, I was interested in
giving it another whirl. Scott broke out his copy and 5 of us were off.
Again we only played a single hand as other gamers started to arrive. I'd
like to try a full game of it and see how I like and if I improve. I came
in second to last in both single hand games.
LA CITTA: Again another repeat from BLAH. I decided to try and replicate
Andrew's strategy, since he beat me with it. Basically, don't pay to much
to the whims of the people on each round and just build the best city you
can and the rounds should even out. It also involved building lots of farms
and running money poor with no quarries. I got down an ealry 3rd city and
had some pretty solid cities. My people never starved and all 3 cities got
the 3 point bonus, but Dave's cities turned into Monsters. He just kept
sucking people from everyone. He finished with 33 people and 6 points in
city bonuses to my 24 people and 9 in city bonuses. Ralph and Scott brought
up the rear.
BLACK VIENNA: At my request Richard tucked this into his game bag. I always
make one mistake that I can't account for later in the game. I was sure
that Campbell had C, when in fact he had I.... I think this may be my
favorite deduction game. I look forward to playing a game without Richard,
so that I (and the others) have a chance to win.
Following a brief game of BLUFF in I was trounced early, the 10 of us broke
into 2 5-player ALEA classics. TAJ and PoF.
TAJ MAHAL: I took the +2 bonus card in round 3 and played it every round
until it was taken from me in round 9 or 10. As such I had a nice lead most
of the game. The problem was that I had to stay in each of the rounds, so I
missed a number of chances to wussy fold and improve my hand. This was my
undoing as I ran out of steam down the stretch and Rich passed me in the
final round. Other players were Campell, Ralph, and newbie Nick.
I then moderated WEREWOLF, where Rich and Alison ran the table, feasting on
villagers and night and watching them hang each other each day. Richard had
the bad luck to have all of the villagers he "saw" killed off, and waited
one turn too long to reveal that he knew Alison was a werewolf.
DAS AMULETT: Another game brought to B2O by my request. A quick rules
refresher and we were off. Rich and I both had built up sizeable hands of
metal cards, but had to spend all of them to keep Kyle from winning. Which
of course left us with no resources for the following turn when Kyle would
clinch his victory.
Another great night. Thanks to Dave at Scholars for the munchies and the
