Mark's been itching to get this game, glad he got it on the table.
Beautiful board, will be even better when Mark finishes the custom paint job on his gears.

Worker placement with a twist.

The definitive Pirate Game...?

12 - ERIC B (Green) Merchant
7 - James L (Red) Merchant
4 - Decatur (Yellow) Pirate
4 - Jon Q (Blue) Merchant

"James was forging ahead as an astounding merchant, when Eric framed him as a pirate. The French navy immediately killed him, slowing down his advance on the Glory Chart." ~ from the Game Report

The featured game of the night (2 tables of 5, simultaneous!)

Never trust Agent XXY...

Our game seemed to be going well, despite some struggles with Agent XXY, lions, and Dexter's crying fits. But... collecting 8 Intel, needing only 5 to match... we failed by one.

L - Wheeler Bob as Dante Wright, the ex-CIA brotha
L - Ryan St as Nika Shizuka, ex-Jap SS swordstress
L - Lansing Rob as Dexter Kane, our crybaby nerd
L - Scott as Rocko Juergen, the Austrian Muscleman
L - Steve H as Calli Dagger, the sultry "Negotiator"

We failed to foil the plots & machinations of Pope Lobo the 1st...
------------------------------------------

The other group gave no gory details of their failure.

L - Andrew as Dante Wright
L - Jarrod as Rocko Juergen
L - Jeff O as Dexter Kane
L - Jim S as Nika Shizuka
L - Nick as Calli Dagger
-------------------------------------------
SMERSH got a 3rd play that Friday at the Tenth Planet Monthly Game Night.

Notable: eKY-Steve as Dante "Honey Pot" Wright, who used a Love Potion on Senor Salazar, infiltrated his hotel room, but found himself spurned and left sitting sobbing in the hallway. With... ahem... "an injury".

'Nuff said.
(Tho we won this time, fairly easily, thanks to strategic selection of Advanced Skills for Auto Passes!)

Snake Team (S.S.S.):
Scott, Steve H, & Stosh*
21-25-17 = 63

The BJers (B.J.R.):
Wheeler Bob, Jeff, & Ryan

21-17-25 = 63

BJers win via Tie-Breaker since I was pitted against Military Man Jeff in a test of marksmanship (who could fling a card farthest).

Very fun "charades"-ish game. Strong memory element, too, as the Clues are repeated each of 3 rounds (but rules for clue-givers change each round).

Theme Song:
"Papa Don't Preach" ~ James Brown
