We set a new attendance record at 21 and a new games played record of 19 
titles with 23 plays.  There were 4 tables used at various times 
throughout the day.

Gaming started first in the Game Room with a 2-player game of San Juan won 
by Gretchen.  Game ratings were 7 7.

This was followed by a 5-player Ticket to Ride with the 1910 Expansion.  
I (Rick) won this one.  Ratings were 8 8 9 8 8.

Then a monster 6-player game of Starcraft ensued which was won by John 
Kosanke.  The only rating submitted was a 7.5.

Closing out the room for the night was a 5-player Arkham Horror with the 
evil being soundly defeated in the end.

Gaming in the Living Room began with Ubongo Xtreme.  4 people played with 
Adrienne coming away with the win.  Ratings were 7.5 7.5 8.5 and 7.

Next to hit this table was Atlantic Storm with 5 players.  Jason won this 
game.  Ratings were 8 10 7.5 8 8.

In the spirit of cooperation Shadows Over Camelot was played next with 5 
Knights and no Traitor.  The Knights were victorious.  Ratings were 7 6 8 
8 8.

There was no record sheet filled out but I know at some point a game of To 
Court the King was played at this table with 4 players.

The timeline got lost a little but I think next was a 5-player game of 
Winner's Circle which was won by Bob.  Ratings were 8 7 8 8 7.

Finally we closed out the evening with a 3-player game of Igel Argern won 
by Gretchen.  Ratings were 7 and 8.  Mike rated it a 7 but only because it 
was after 1am.  If played before 1am he would have rated it a 2.

A card table was set up in the hallway which hosted a lot of gaming 
throughout the day.  First played was Race for the Galaxy with 4 players.  
Sallie and Tucker tied for the win.  Ratings were 9 8 8.5 9.

Next played was a 4-player game of Relationship Tightrope.  Christin won 
with only 8 points (points are bad, m'kay.)  I rated it a 5, no other 
ratings were submitted.

Then we did a quick 4-player game of 10 Days in Asia won by Jason.  
Ratings were 7 7 7 7.

John and Sheila arrived and we crowded around the little table for a 
6-player game of Die Kutschfahrt zur Teufelsburg.  There was some 
rewinding at the end since someone made an invalid play and it wasn't 
caught for a couple turns so I'm not sure who won or who should have won 
or what would have happened in an alternate universe. :)  Ratings were 2 7 
5 - 6 7.

A 3-player Cartagena was next.  I (Rick) got all 6 pirates in the boat 
first.  Ratings were 7 7 6.5.

Jason and I played Ingenious - Travel Edition next.  It was a close game 
but I won by 1 point in the end.  Ratings were 7 and 7.

We have two games of To Court the King going on at the same time (that's 
how I figured out there was a record sheet missing at the other table!)  
Gretchen won this game.  No ratings were submitted.

The last game on the card table was a 3-player game of Ticket to Ride 
Switzerland.  I won.  Ratings were 7 8 8.

I didn't make it to the basement all day but there was activity down 
there.  It started with a 4-player game of Poison which Kevin won.  
Ratings were 8 8 8 10.

Then Ubongo Xtreme was played again which was won by Michelle.  Ratings
were 7 8 6 7.

The rest of the day saw this as the Agricola room.  3 games were played 
consecutively.  Winners were Ben, John Kerr and Ben again.  Ratings over 
the 2 4-player games and 1 5-player game were 8 7 9.5 9.5 9 9 and 10.
