|13 of us played 11 games. Welcome new guy Norberto, friend of Fina (and surprisingly he is apparently the first person at RussCon whose name starts with N...)||
I've sold a bunch of games to RussCon friends; some of them games that I've probably owned longer than some RussCon folks have been alive! It's melancholy yet exciting to be getting rid of some of the stuff I owned that ended up owning me. I'm glad they're finding homes with friends who will enjoy playing them. If anyone else is interested, here is the current list. Also if anyone wants some of these vinyl records for your listening pleasure, I'd be happy to pass them along, and I'm going to go sell the rest.
28 Days Later is officially my favorite movie from the summer since I saw it 3 times. Thursday night several RussCon folks + Go/Esperanto folks + work folks saw it... and I'm glad I trusted my instinct and prodded folks for this to happen, because that was the last night it showed... it's gone now!
I also really enjoyed Under The Tuscan Sun, much more than I expected.

High Bid is an old 3M/AH auction game I found while rummaging through my games. I know it was played long ago at RussCon, I think brought by KevinH who left me this copy, if I recall, but apparently we didn't record the previous session. The game does seem flawed and dated, although I enjoyed playing it as a change of pace.
Pauline had great luck with the dice, in Exxtra, Can't Stop, and Bluff! If memory serves she won Bluff with a hilariously improbable sequence of several rounds that had zillions of twos rolled; and the last round had all twos on all the dice!
