The weekend: old and new

Played two games of Puerto Rico on Saturday, winning one and narrowly losing the second (my own fault, even!).  It was great to see all the High Altitude guys, have pizza, and hang out.  I was a little late due to hitting Logan's 10th birthday party, but other than that, it was all good.

Taught and lost two games of Innovation on Sunday at the Cafe Express-Uptown Park Meetup.  I'm not very good at Innovation, obviously.  It's almost purely tactical, and there's a large random element.  David, the other player, is an experienced gamer and caught on quickly.

I also cleaned the house quite a bit, moving a few games around on the shelves.

This weekend, next weekend (point-counterpoint edition)

This weekend, I didn't play any face-to-face boardgames. I did:
  • clean the downstairs
  • eat pizza
  • Take 5 children between the ages of 2 and 7 to the Lego store at the Galleria
  • Successfully get family photos taken with great results (Jack Potts is the man, post should probably follow to that effect).
  • enable my wife to go to a girls' night out (ha ha, they did crafts).
Next weekend:
  • Guys' night out on Saturday.  Boardgaming, natch.
