We headed out of town this weekend to celebrate Laura’s birthday over the weekend. Joe, Phil, and Dana also joined in on the festivities. On Friday night, after the majority of the party had quieted down, we started in with the board games. Gina and I showed up while they were finishing up 7 Wonders. We then setup Trajan and Agricola.
Gina played Agricola with Phil, Nick, and Laura. I played Agricola with Dana and Joe. I had intended to use wheat to feed my family and then gather sheep to take advantage of my loom. Sadly that didn’t pan out. I never got the wheat rolling, and ended up using my Manufacturer to get the Joinery and Pottery cheaply to help feed my meager family. Joe and Dana were both grabbing sheep, so I missed out on them.
Joe and Dana both managed to fill their farms, but Joe had played a ton of Improvements for points. I managed to score 33, but Joe ended up with the win.
While the others finished Trajan, we played a quick game of Dominion. We had a fairly expensive selection of cards, but the 6 Gold Village that gives another card when it is purchased was available, so that and the Highway went very quickly. Joe was using the Highways to get a couple Provinces, but wasn’t drawing many cards, so it was hard to sustain. I had picked up a couple Margraves, so it took a little longer to get my engine running. It got rolling, though, and I was able start getting points, and even managed a couple multiple Province turns with extra buys. That was enough to take the victory.
We finished the night with Cards Against Humanity. Everyone had a blast, and while I only won a few hands, it was entertaining all around.
On Saturday, Gina and I finally went to see Guardians of the Galaxy. It was awesome all around. I loved the characters, the special effects, and the music. I can’t wait to see it again.
Until next time, happy gaming!
