Tabletop Night: We had a small Pandemic It’s a Wonder it didn’t spread Through our Dominion

So this post is about a week late…. I’m sorry… This had been a LONG weekend/week. More good an bad, that a plus! Did start a new relationship!! A quite nerdy thing, not my usual. But nice(Dr. Horrible anyone? Anyone?) No I’m joking tho, she is great in many ways. It’s nice to have a gamer/bookworm/comic-con happy girlfriend! But I’m going off topic here. Sorry HAHA!

We had a fun little Table Top night. I did break my “Wil Wheaton losing steak” with 7 Wonders!! I didn’t build any of the 3 Wonders, instead I just build up my army and won with 62 points! BUT…. Things changed rather quickly HAHA, I kept coming 2nd or 3rd place after that. Well we did win at Pandemic… But I felt that we won to easily. Rather bitter sweet.. But anywho, here are some pictures for eye candy.

Tabletop Night. Trains, Orcs, and Flying Giants

So once I got off work I walked into the middle of 7 Wonders. But once that was over, we started the night off with Ticket to Ride.

Then we followed it up with classic round of Small World.

Then we finished the night with Castle Panic! One of my personal favorites, we had to play this twice tho. Haha the first game didn’t even last 5 minutes haha.

Even tho I didn’t win any or mostly came in second place…. I had a great time with new friends and a special someone. It was nice to have some game time and forget about my long work day.

Tabletop Night: Alhambra

So I started teaching my little hobbits Alhambra. Now keep in mind Lilly is 5 years of age and Jackson is only 3. For their first time they did REAL WELL. Lilly figured it out rather quickly, Jax took a few turns to put it all together.
But in the end it was Jackson winning with a 142 points with the second longest wall of 18. Both me and Lilly tied with 141 points, Lilly had the shortest wall with 9 and mine came in at 20. It was nice to have a REAL tabletop night with them. Something that wasn’t Clue or Sorry…. Monopoly jr………..

For those who don’t know. In Alhambra, players are acquiring buildings to be placed within their Alhambra complex.

On a player’s turn, a player may take money from the open money market, purchase a building from the building market, or engage in construction and re-construction projects with buildings that have been placed in the player’s reserve. The game rewards efficiency, as when a player purchases a building from the market for the exact amount of money, the player may take another turn.

Players with the most buildings in each of the six building types score in each of the scoring phases, and points are awarded for players’ longest external “wall” section within their complex. The game ends when the building market can no longer be replenished from the building tile supply, and there is a final scoring, whereupon the player with the highest score wins.
