13 of us played 16 games!
BobK appeared in a surprise visit, back from Paris for a few weeks! He plans to be here next week as well, so old-timers who want to catch up with Bob will get more opportunities.
Meanwhile, KevinU spent his last RussCon for a while as he's heading out on a months-long ramble out west.
Spanish/Esperanto: 2pm Sunday at Texspresso on Anderson Lane (by Alamo Drafthouse Village) is the weekly basic informal Spanish RussCon study group as well as the Esperanto formal study group.
If anyone in Austin wants about 5 shelf feet of Doctor Dobbs Journal and some other computer magazines from the past decade for free, let me know.

OMG Star Venture got played again! Yay! I am often inclined to a strategy of lots of outposts, which I've done these past couple weeks, and which seems to be good for finishing me in the upper half but not winning... Gotta do more expanding onto stars to get the quick cash sometimes, I think. BTW thanks to Jeffles for giving some useful feedback on improving the presentation of the rules. (Most importantly, it was very unclear as written that you get a share of stock when you grow a corporation.)
Boggle continues its improbable reign of popularity. After years of weird eurogames, it amuses me that some of us are so into this venerable classic now. Miraculously I pipped Tim in Boggle (he usually trounces the rest of us!)
We had an epic game of Guillotine... so many extra nobles came out that we had to reshuffle the discards to get more nobles!
a flavor of india
Irshad Khan, The Magic of Twilight
Ustad Vilayat Khan, Sitar
Manilal Nag, Live in Woodstock
Ravi Shankar's Festival From India
Indian music, I suppose because I've been thinking about Buddhism lately.
