20 of us played 15 games! Welcome back long-lost Alfred who was visiting Austin on vacation from his self-imposed exile in St. Louis!
November 20 will be camping overnight at Inks Lake (car camping, near a bathroom; not primitive camping), at least if the weather is not too bad. Let me know if you're interested.

Hurray Stephensons Rocket. Marty and I both agree this game should get played more. It is, after all, the greatest of all Knizia train games!
Show-off Jeffles jumping into our 6-player Ricochet Robot game when there are only 3 chits left, and winning all 3 of the chits and third place! I was glad I had already collected 4 chits by that point...
In the Acquire game, I once again learned the hard way not to buy lots of Continental and Imperial in the opening... If only I would apply that hard-won knowledge.
Chad utterly demolished me and Clayton in his first game of Saint Petersburg! I also kick myself for my tendency to forget to use the frickin' observatory after I bought it. Not to mention holding the Mistress of Ceremonies in my hand the whole game, forever unable to afford bringing her out until the last turn. If I didn't like this game so much, I'd hate it!

Recent acquisitions by me and Clayton as a result of the Celtic Festival last weekend! (Guessing which CDs are mine and which are Clayton's is left as an exercise to the reader.)
