HackMoor 2018/03/08 Place Holder Report

Games are (usually) on Thursday nights sometime after 6:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601. (Note I just upped this an hour to reflect reality.)

As of the last report it was 5 weeks since the last HackMaster session, it has been 3 more weeks since the last report we still haven't played it, 8 weeks total.

​PART 1.

++++ START OF NON-SESSIONS ++++

This doesn't mean we haven't played any games. We just didn't play any HackMaster. What follows are a summation of the last three sessions.

2018/02/22 - We played the old Avalon Hill game of "Rail Baron". The Player who runs Huang and Honda won this session in a three Player game. Having got both AT&SF and Union Pacific by the time all rail properties had been bought. We knew then it was a foregone conclusion.

2018/03/01 - We played a new game, Bezier's game of "Palace of Mad King Ludwig", again the Player who runs Huang and Honda won. Although there was some sense of beginner's luck was we were all learning how to accumulate points and swans. The game was a hoot, somewhat of a random jigsaw puzzle with points earned for tiles played. The idea is that you're all architects competing to build mad King Ludwig's palace. The winner gets the King's contract based on points earned for the best combination of rooms. There is a 14 minute or so video on how it's played, just do a web search on the title and the publisher.

2018/03/08 - We played no game, however I decided to have my Players go next door to the Italian restaurant where we normally get pizza and order real dinners, on plates. I put it on my bill. In other news, another one of my Players lost his job. Currently my Players are three out of five unemployed, and I'm not 100% certain of the status of the remaining two. Anyone in Hampton Roads hiring personnel with recent experience as a reciprocal horizontal motion surface cleaning engineer, let me know.

++++ OUT OF CHEESE ERROR ++++
