9 of us played 7 games! Single digits - what an unusually light turnout! Where was everyone? I blame the lack of a Meta Game this week. :)
Art Cars: There will be an art car parade on Congress Avenue, going south from the capitol, on Saturday 2005-04-16 (tomorrow) at noon. I intend to check it out. If anyone is interested and wants to hook up, email me.
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.

Poor Mike got smeared in Carcassonne. Final scores were 102, 84, 81, 31. Woot! There was a big farms race in this game.
It was fun to play the venerable Settlers of Catan again; it had been a while since I last played. In many ways, Settlers is the game that started RussCon.

I suppose this is a meta-meta theme... since there was no new Meta Game this week, there was no new Evening's Soundtrack...
