13 of us played 12 games!
The remaining money from the recent Putt Putt Meta Game was used for jalapeno yam chips and spicy taro chips, two kinds of chips I believe have never appeared at RussCon before. They were both pretty tasty, I thought!
Marty is riding in the American Diabetes Association "Tour de Cure" bike ride and trying to raise money.
Spanish: 2pm Sunday at Texspresso on Anderson Lane (by Alamo Drafthouse Village) is the weekly basic informal Spanish RussCon study group... so far it consists of me studying Spanish by myself at Texspresso, except one time Whendy came with a Spanish instructional CD we played around with. :)

Adam was at one with his inner robot and kicked our asses in Ricochet Robot. I feel like I have lost whatever semblance of talent I once had for this game. Still enjoy it, though!
I redeemed myself in Boggle, in a good come-from-behind - the final round I noticed SQUASH and some other such long words.
Chad really smacked me down in Tayu. I actually managed to almost come back, to my surprise, but the board was so unplayable that the end came before I could ever draw a tile which would have tied me.
I don't ever remember winning Cloud 9 before, that was fun!
Durch die Wüste is one of my all-time favorite Knizia games. Why don't we play it more often?
Ys was new, and I know nothing about it except that it seemed to take a while to play.
Beethoven, Symphony No. 6 and Symphony No. 1
Leo Kottke, 6 and 12 String Guitar
Marillion, Six of One, Half-Dozen of the Other
Six Mile Bridge, Across the Water
Rick Wakeman, The Six Wives of Henry VIII
Another of those pesky meta themes.
