|15 of us played 12 games.||
Looks like JP & I both are playing hooky and skipping the Houston Go Tournament this weekend and going to Allen's party (don't tell Beth) instead.
I've sold more of my games to RussCon friends. (Allen and Robby still need to pick theirs up, nudge nudge. If I remember, I'll take 'em to Allen's party.) 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 when I get off my lazy ass and do it. And those 2 butt monsters are gone, baby, gone, a fine white elephant birthday gift for a friend at work!

Sadly, that guy who brings all the games didn't show up this time, so no Alhambra, alas!
That was certainly one of my better Puerto Rico performances! Pretty fast game too; the colonists started coming out in large numbers. The most VPs earned (from shipping) were 15 (JP) and I had 11 if I recall. I earned 11 points also just from the Fortress (1 extra VP per every 3 colonists), which I found is a nice combination with the Hospice. I also did my usual Small and Large Market thing.
Ghost Party seems to be having a resurgence of interest lately. Good old Hugo!
Rummikub proved to be enjoyable again, even though it's a more old-fashioned traditional game than we normally play.
A reminder that kibbitzing is a Bad Thing unless all parties involved agree that kibbitzing is welcome.

Another of those pesky "Russ got home late and didn't have time to think of a very clever theme" themes!
