Tonight turned into a Stonemaier game night. The 6 of us played Viticulture followed by Between Two Cities (pictured). It was our first play through of Between Two Cities. The group enjoyed it. Fast paced game for a larger group with enough decision making to keep the game interesting.

I believe +Chuck McNamara​​ won both games.

Yeah that sounds about right... our group has the tendency to draw things out too. We're at that adolescent stage where we regularly have 6 or 7 people at game night, but not quite big enough to break into 2 smaller games. That means we've been trying to get our hands on anything that plays 6+, often at the cost of additional time. We don't seem to mind though since we often play for 4/4.5 hours total anyway (including filler games).

I wish there were more games that had the strategic depth and swiftness of turns you can find in 7 Wonders. We've played it MANY times because of our size predicament.

Played Viticulture for the first time with some friends. It was nice out so we played on the deck with a bottle of wine. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Plus, I won!

Great 5 player game of acquire. Imperial and American were the big 2. I got second place to +Chuck McNamara​ by $800.

First play through of Lords of Waterdeep with the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion. The expansion is definitely worth it.

You have to get the upgraded Meeples for the adventurers! Makes the game even better.

First play through of Brew Crafters Travel Card Game. Played while drinking homebrew to really get into the theme. We liked it. Pretty fast game with 2 players. Perfect bar game. Really want to give Brew Crafters (non travel edition) a try, but can't find it to purchase.

Also, I won!  happy #tabletopday

Built a custom Lords of Waterdeep insert (my first) to hold the pieces from the original game and the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion in the same box (original box) based on the build found here: http://www.topshelfgamer.com/collections/lords-of-waterdeep/products/lords-of-waterdeep-w-expansion-foamcore-insert. My advice? Maybe just spend the money to buy one premade :)

Yeah... I briefly owned a copy of LoWD with the Broken Token insert.  The insert was really nice and functional... and only $26.  As compared to paying $41 for foam core, that is a no brainer... then again, bags.
