Sunday: Alhambra and a deacon

Larry and I met up outside the church bookstore after Lee and I dropped off the girls.

I brought my new copy of Alhambra, obtained in a recent trade, and sorted out all the stuff you have to do for the special 2-player rules. I've played twice before, once with 4 and once with 5, so I didn't know exactly how it worked. You have to sort through all the money and sort about a fourth of the deck out. Bleah.

We were about 2/3 of the way through when one of the deacons stopped to ask us to move into an empty room... he knew we weren't gambling, but felt that the appearance of such might be upsetting in some way. We finished up our game, and not having enough time to play a second game, lounged in the outdoor garden, enjoying the breeze and hanging out.

As many times as we've been up there with Attika, at least one of the other deacons has seen us each time and shown friendly interest in the game. Oh, well. I'm guessing having Corinth as one of the cities in Attika may have given us an air of respectability...

Our invitation to move was a friendly encounter, and the deacon stopped by the garden when he saw us, to apologize for running us off. We let him know that wasn't the case - we didn't have time to start another game, and no harm done for either party.

Gamecount: Individual game sessions played for the year = 129, New game titles played for the year = 21.
