January 15, 2007 - boardgaming redux
January 15, 2007I had meant to take a picture of the outside of the Wegman's, but then I totally forgot about it.  This is the view from the upstairs, where they have seating for people eating from the marketplace.  This is a view looking down on the chinese bar, which is really quite good; they also have a coffee bar, wing bar, pizza place and some hot food choices as well.

I had the day off, so I decided to head down to the boardgaming group meetup.  I'm so glad I ended up signing up, I must say. I wasn't thrilled with the new game I learned: Princes of Florence, but I got to play Alhambra again (although I didn't win), and Puerto Rico (I crushed my opponents like the poor settlers they are), and this really bizarre game called Wits to Wagers [I'm writing this on the train into NYC so I don't have linkies with me - check out www.boardgamegeek.com and use the search if you want real descriptions], which is a mix of trivia and poker - you bet on people's answers and on the last question you can go "all-in".  I didn't win the first game, but the second game ended with the question, "How many elements are there on the periodic table?" BOO-yeah, thank you chemical engineering degree!  Of course the trick to the game was that it's like the price is right - get as close as possible without going over.  I knew it was right around 110, since I had to stare at that thing in Noyes Lab for years.  I should have put down 109, because then I'd be positive it was the closest - but no, I put down 110.  Still, I was confident enough to bet most of my chips on it and cha-ching, winner!

I stayed until 10:30 pm when I went "Aie!  I must actually work tomorrow and I still have half an hour of a drive home."  But the lack of sleep was worth it.
