Arrrgggg....... Plunder is here!

I love Elfenland, but I wouldn't say it was like Ticket To Ride.
Amazonas is more like Ticket to Ride.

1st
Anything by Steve Jackson (especially munchkin)
Talisman ( I have a very beat-up version, but just the base set)

Now here's a guy for me... if I were into that sort of thing. (Heh, sorry, couldn't resist.) wink

I'd love to play either. Anyone wanna give Illuminati a try sometime? It's a hoot.

I'd have to recommend Talisman for a special session outside of our regular game night because it can be quite long, especially if you include any expansions. Isaac, what version of Talisman do you have?

Ok, I think I have this worked out. It takes a long time to ponder because there are too many good choices!

In each preference I've listed one I've played and one I haven't. I don't mind not learning three new games every week because it's alot on the brain and there are quite a few I'd like to play a second, or third, time.

1st preference
- Alhambra
- Caribbean
-(Louis XIV)

2nd preference
- Amazonas
- Niagara

3rd preference
- Citadels or Carcassonne
- Entdecker


I noticed that Scott put down Louis XIV, and it's on my first preference list, but BGG lists it at 100 minutes!

Would also like to try HexHex if that's a candidate for a filler. Other fine, festive fillers that are fiercely fun for me include Zircus Flochati, Saboteur, Frank's Zoo, Great Dalmuti.

Always willing to play Alhambra, Amazonas, Citadels, Munchkin, Settlers.

Repost of my game preferences:

1st Preference
==========
Niagara -- I want to push the disks!!!
Plunder -- Arrrr....
Evo -- Again with the one less gene variant

2nd Preference
===========
Mexica -- Gotta get out my surfing mexican shaman
Elfenland -- Supposed to be similar to Ticket To Ride
Formula De -- I like the computer version. I think it would be a hoot in person.

3rd Preference
==========
Memoir 44 -- Would rate #1 if it played well with more than 2.
Zendo -- I enjoy the buddha nature.
Bang! -- With Dodge City expansion.



**NOTE TO DON**

I was accepted as a beta tester for an online game (Auto Assault) and currently the only open testing time is Wednesday nights from 7 until 11. I will most likely be staying for the 1st game only. I mention this so you can plan the games accordingly. If you need any of my games for later in the evening I can leave them with Don and grab them Thursday night at Betrayal night.

Thanks to everyone for voting this week it was a big help while I was figuring out the lineup. Please chime in if you see something that isn't going to fit or if something else makes sense.

Lets start out the evening with 3 three player games. I went this way because nine is a tough number and no three games were matching up perfectly, but the top three had a lot of potential floaters.

Game 1 (Three 3's)
==============

Game 1a - Alhambra
--------------------------
60 min - Kevin Teaches
votes - (April, Kevin, Laurie), [Joel]

Game 1b - Niagara
------------------------
45 min - Don or Doug Teaches
votes - (Don, Doug, Bobbie), [April]

Game 1c - Caribbean
---------------------------
30 min - Scott Teaches
votes - (April, Scott), [Bobbie, Don], Laurie

Floaters:
-----------
Don, Laurie, Joel, April, Bobbie, Isaac


Game two worked out a little better. I went with two three player games and Memoir 44 for Kevin and Joel. I chose Entdecker to give Isaac at least one first choice for the night. Joel and Kevin, if you guys would rather jump into Pirate's and Entdecker by all means hop in.


Game 2 (3 way split again)
===================

Game 2a - Endecker (3-4)
---------------------------------
60 min - Don Teaches
Votes - (Isaac, Don), April, Bobbie

Game 2b - Pirate's Cove (3-5)
--------------------------------------­
90 min - Bobbie Teaches if necessary
Votes - (Bobbie), [Laurie], Scott

Game 2c Memoir '44 (2)
------------------------------
30 min - (Kevin), [Joel]


Game three also fit together pretty well. There was a lot of votes for Amazonas so I wanted to get that one to the table. After that was Carcassonne and who am I to deny the dragon a night out biggrin. Isaac I hope you're up for Carcassonne if not I'm sure April could be persuaded to face the dragon.


Game 3 (bust out the dragon)
=====================

Game 3a - Amazonas (3-4)
----------------------------------
50 min - Bobbie Teaches
votes - (Joel), [April, Scott, Bobbie]

Game 3b - Carcassone w/dragon (2-5)
--------------------------------------­----
NOTE: if it's early enough we could add other expansions
60 min - Don Teaches if necessary
votes - (Laurie), [Kevin], April

Floaters:
-----------
April, Isaac

Well, since we got in two games of Niagara on Saturday (and it was VERY cool), I certainly don't mind playing one of my alternates.
