and I played in a Settler's of Catan tournament tonight, run by Eureka Games, a games store in Coolidge corner. There were 40 people there, and we each played three games. I haven't played Settlers in quite a while, and should play it more: I had forgotten what a good game it is. And all of my opponents were pleasant people who were fun to play with.callyperry
was the only player to win all three games. I won two games, and got 9 points in the third game. So we both get to go back next week, when the four of us play 3 or 4 more games. The winner gets a free trip to Gencon to play in the US finals (and the winner there gets a free trip to the Essen Game Fair in Germany to play in the World Championship), so wish us luck!
