Twas two weeks before Christmas, when all through the coffee shop, Not a creature was stirring, except for that roudy bunch of boardgame players in the back. Had a great time this past week as usual. Big thanks to Scott, Laurie, Doug, April, Joe, and Bobbie for bringing and teaching games. Robo Rally was a blast. Hoity Toity was fun and I think it would be even more fun with 5. And the good nights of the round table once again layeth the smacketh downeth in Shadows over Camelot. Aladdin's Dragons, Tikal, TTR Europe, and Caylus also made it to the table this past week to round out another excellent lineup. We had a lot of new members join this past week and I hope all of you can make it out sometime soon because we need some fresh meat ... urr ... I mean players, yeah fresh players.

See you on Wednesday. Don The highlight of my gaming night was the Robo Rally game. And the big surprise was that Doug won Robo Rally!!! Yes it's true, give it a minute to sink in. Not only did Doug win but he won by completely destorying all the other robots and didn't capture a single flag. Doug's path of destruction ended when I was newmanized by Doug's tractor beam and then backed mysefl into a pit. Newman!!! Robo Rally, can't beat it.
