Houston Gamers (catch-up from last week)

I went to the Houston Gamers last Saturday. There were two groups upstairs playing Struggle of Empires and Power Grid. I stayed downstairas and played Money, San Juan, and Zombie Rally with Todd Cole, his girlfriend Cynthia, and James Spurney.

Money (Reiner Knizia's Money, By Reiner Knizia) is a great little auction game. It's out of print, or I'd already have a copy.

We played my copy of San Juan, and I lost, lost, lost. I did several very bad things that are ways to lose, and after that, I lost. I still had a good time. Todd Cole bought a copy of it at the end of the night, so that was something.

Zombie Rally is an envelope game about racing zombies. Cynthia disabled all the other zombies, and won handily.

Cynthia was in a wheelchair with a cast due to taking a fall a few weeks before, so we were trapped downstairs. The guys behind the counter spent their time playing clips from YouTube at high volume. Also, I'm certain pornography was being viewed at one point, but thankfully, the monitor was pointed the other way.

Did I mention many geeks are pathetic, horrible man-children?

Gamecount: Individual game sessions played for the year = 189, New game titles played for the year = 41
