SR: BBGG 10/12/2005 PoF, Shark, 6 Nimmt
- Wow a great week of gaming at B.Good on Dartmouth Street tonight. All
told there were 10 of us gamers there and one interested newbie who
missed her train. In attendence(Please fill in with your name if I
didn't add it) were myself (Rob .Beardless. Eno), Chef Jeff, Matthew
Gray, Felix, Mark, Randy, Emma, two people who've been to Felix'
before and Robert from the Netherlands. Yes I did say the
Netherlands. Some of you may have noticed on BGG this week that
somebody posted looking for a game store in Boston. I read the post
and realized that Roja was from the Netherlands. Well he happened to
be in town for a conference this week and was available for gaming
tonight. And seeing as he was staying at the Marriot Copley, he was
right across the street. Also in attendence was Debbie who missed her
train and almost jumped in to play.
We started off by playing Princes of Florence. There were five of us
playing this. Matthew Gray, Randy, Felix, Robert and me Rob. A five
player game seems to really favor the 2nd player. The second player
gets to buy one extra profession card to start the game. This allows
that player to get an extra work for a lot less than the cost of a
Jester or work and a bonus card. The jester distribution was pretty
even with none of us having more than 2. Being the second player, I
won this game. The margin of victory was about 12, or the one extra
work I had.
Emma showed up and Felix had to leave. We had six players so we
played 6 Nimmt! Emma won. Although all that really matters according
to Chef Jeff is not losing. So I guess I didn't matter scoring well
over 80 points!!!! While we were playing 6 nimmt! Mark showed up.
After 6 Nimmt! we broke into two groups. One played Shark and the
other played a Card game that Matthew brought. While Shark and this
card game were being played the two people whose names escape me
showed up. And played another card game.
The four of us that played Shark were Netherlands Robert, Chef Jeff,
Mark, and myself. As we were explaining the rules a nice young lady
asked if she could watch us. It seems as she missed her 8:30 train
and her next one wasn't until 10:10. Seeing as it was 9:10 we didn't
think she'd have enough time to play. Debbie ended up watching us
play. Well it turns out that she would have been able to play with us
because the game only lasted about 45 minutes. Yellow kept getting
rolled and it rolled onto victory reaching 15 units. As it did this
there were a lot of chains destroyed by the juggernaut that it was.
Mark timed his sales of stock very well and ended up winning with over
250 thousand. I came in second with around 210K, Netherlands Robert
came in third, and Chef Jeff came in last with -$8000, my last play
of Yellow ended the game and destroyed green all in one fell swoop.
Causing chef jeff to lose a LOT of money as it went from 7000 par
value to 1000.
I left at this point (10:05) and six souls stayed to play Bluff.
