I won the settlers tournament, winning two games out of the four we played. callyperry
came in second. So I get a free trip to Gencon! Eureka Games, the games store in Coolidge Corner that ran the tournament, is paying my airfare, and Mayfair games is paying for hotel, Gencon admission, and entry in the Settlers of Catan US championship.
The finals were fun to play in. I would have thought that four consecutive games of Settlers, all played on the same board, would start to get monotonous, but the initial placements were all different, and the games took very different directions. And all my opponents were nice people and good players and fun to play with, which is the important thing.
I've never been to GenCon. Anyone who has gone, and has suggestions for fun things to do, should let me know. I know that crs
are all going this year, which I'm sure will make the trip more fun. Is anyone else I know going?
I suppose I should try to practice before playing in the US championship, so anyone who wants to get together and play Settlers some evening should let me know.
