Kay, Stephanie, Ben, and Kevin played Stone Age, while I taught Tyler, Steve, and Bob how to play Cuba. Cuba is a fairly hard game for our crowd, but at least this time I remembered most of the rules (with a little help from Steve and Tyler on book). I focused on buildings that worked well together, and, thanks to a king-maker move by Bob, I won the game.
While Renee did her complicated Cuba, I taught Stone Age (popular worker placement game) to Ben, Stephanie and Kevin. Ben had played it before but it had been a long time. While I did well using tools vs meeples, end game caught me a bit off-guard, sticking me with unused resources instead of more hut points... and between tons of huts and green civ cards, Ben pulled off the win, with me in second.
Then Stephanie and Kevin had to leave, so Ben and I played a couple of games of Marrakech, a curious game of laying down carpets in strategic patterns, hoping your opponent will land on them (buy them) and have to pay you for the privilege. I won the first one, and I believe we tied the second. And Tyler watched the second. :-)
