Power Grid is a hit on Saturday night

R.J. and Larry came over for dinner and gaming on Saturday night.

I had cooked up some chicken, and Lee made pasta and alfredo sauce. Larry brought some cherry turnovers for dessert.

The kids went to bed with no trouble, so R.J. unpacked his copy of Power Grid. Power Grid is ranked highly on the Boardgamegeek site, with good reason. It has a lot of variation between games, has a good deal of hidden information, and packs a lot of tension with opportunity for good play. There's a lot of details, but once you've played through a few turns, it's second nature.

Three things about last night that were awesome:
  1. It actually happened.
  2. Lee liked and was intrigued by Power Grid, and is willing and ready to play again.
  3. I won. I'm not a dance-around-the-table guy, but I do like to see my plans work.
Gamecount: Individual game sessions played for the year = 117, New game titles played for the year = 18.
