Thursday Night Gaming

I made it to work early enough to make it to the post office and ship some N64 games I sold on Yay! Recovery of expenses not even close to original purchase price in store!

Other than that, Timothy, Crystal, Michael, and Chris made it over for boardgames. I got out my copy of Aladdin's Dragons, which Chris had played once. We played a learning game to 3 artifacts to get everyone up to speed, then played a full game. Crystal pulled out a final-turn lead and won with 9 artifacts. We were playing the no-magic game, instead of the full game where you have artifact powers and spell cards.

I'm a little underwhelmed by the basic game. Once the tiles are placed, you can walk away from the table for 5 minutes, because there's no decisions to be made, unlike in the advanced game where anyone can meddle anywhere after a round or two.

On the other hand, we started a full, basic game at 9 pm with 5 people, and finished up 51 minutes later. Everyone had a good time.

Gamecount: Individual game sessions played for the year = 79, New game titles played for the year = 16.
