Lassie's Rescue Rangers meets Pandemic! Sounds like they had fun and the game seems well received. (Tho they may need spme training, since they failed miserably...)

Frank, Greg (Rescue), Luke, Nick (HazMat), & Tyler (Hose Man).
Lost.

A game seeing some good repeat action lately. Gaining in popularity.

FINALLY! The planes were rolled out of their hangars, the pilots tossed back their scarves, gave their props a crank, and jumped into the cockpit! WWI aerial combat at it's best!

The battered, bloody and smoking German aces won:
Markus von Markus (flying a Fokker DR1, finsihed w/ 11 of 13 damage!),
and
Tyler von Damm (flying the Fokker VIII, finishing with 15/16 damage!)

defeated

Sir Gregory of the (Cedar) Lake (in an exploding Sopwith Camel),
and
"Fearless" Frank Rodriguez (in the plane-formerly-know-as-the-Spad XIII).

Sounds like they had a really good time!

"After the turn of the century
In the clear blue skies over Germany
Came a roar and a thunder men had never heard
Like the scream and the sound of a big war bird"
(The Royal Guardsmen, "Snoopy vs the Red Baron)"

The Burgers in Burgertown game (by ravensBURGER games!).
Okay, so it's CASTLES of Burgundy, but in the original German it's Bergen von Burgund (or something like that. Which makes me laugh...)

Second time running it for Michael (with correct rules this time, ahem).
Kind of fiddly, reminds me a bit of Troyes (dice decisions, I guess), not sure tho, need another play maybe. Alan is luke-warm on it. Couldn't tell if Steve liked it. What SHOULD'VE been tight scoring, based on the game's design, was skewed by my really bad decision-making and NOT paying attention to the other players... (sigh) Oh well, at least I didn't tarnish Yellow's Win-Loss Ratio...

214 - ALAN (Green)
199 - Steve (Red)
189 - Michael (Blue)
164 - Scott (Black)

Inga: Werewolf!
Dr. Frankenstein: Werewolf?
Igor: There.
Dr. Frankenstein: What?
Igor: There, wolf. There, castle.
Dr. Frankenstein: Why are you talking that way?
Igor: I thought you wanted to.
Dr. Frankenstein: No, I don't want to.
Igor: [shrugs] Suit yourself. I'm easy.

I've had this little card (drafting) game for years, but never played. Looking for a quick closer and Alan had played it before and was willing to teach us. As Alan had warned, after 1st play, we were befuddled. I actually didn't get it at all, and would likely have not played again. But Michael said, "that was quick, let's play again". So we did. Wow. What a difference a 2nd play made! Once you know the cards and the possibilities, it suddenly makes sense and was alot of fun! (and quick, about 15-20 mins)! So glad we tried it that way and gave it a 2nd chance! Would like to see more folks try this, great starter/closer for 3-5.

You can see the influence it had on 7 Wonders.

Game 1 (no idea what we were doing)
51 - ALAN
44 - Michael
36 - Scott
34 - Steve

Game 2 (NOW it makes sense!)
48 - STEVE
39 - Alan & Scott (tied)
35 - Michael
