May 20, 2017 was another game day. I didn’t get any pictures this time, so I will just write up a few details here for the shorter games and another post for the longer ones.
Games started a little early with Daniel learning how to play Android: Netrunner. Justin and Halen spent some time teaching the game, but there was no official score to record. However, it was a good game and will likely lead to more games of Netrunner in the future.
Jeremy and I played a quick game of Mottainai while waiting for more players. Jeremy played strategically to end the game quickly thinking he had an easy win with his early hand of cards. The score ended up being a tie after counting backorders and sales on my side. However, a tie goes to the player who ended the game, so Jeremy still got the win with 14 points and being the current player.
More players arrived about the time that Netrunner and Mottainai finished, so we split the group into 2. The larger group played Secret Hitler 3 times. That group included Halen, Jenna, Justin, Aaren, Jana, and Henry. Jana and Henry were new to the group, joining from Jinju. All 3 games were wins for the liberals. The first win was for Justin, Aaren, Henry, and Jana by policy. The second win was by Aaren, Halen, Jenna, and Jana. They killed their own team member Aaren but got Justin Hitler with the 2nd kill. The third win was by Justin, Halen, Henry, and Jana with policy.
At some point people were playing Red 7 but didn’t finish or record any result.
Jeremy, Daniel, and I played Smash Up while the others played Secret Hitler. Jeremy won using the killer plant and mad scientist factions. He ended the game with 18 points to my 15 using bear cavalry and aliens. The result was decisive, but I came close to winning a couple times before Jeremy got his big victory only to be blocked by Daniel’s super spies.
Later, while some long games were happening Jana, Ryan, Bridget, Daniel, Henry, and Jeremy played 2 games of Bang! The Dice Game. The first game was a blowout victory for the sheriff and deputies partially because there was 1 too many of them dealt into the game. Jana was the sheriff with Daniel and Henry as deputies. The 2nd game was a win by the outlaws played by Daniel, Jeremy, and Ryan. They killed sheriff Bridget.
Justin and Jeremy also played 2 games of Jump Drive. Jeremy won both games with between 50 and 60 points.
