Sunday Afternoon Board Gaming

Gaming is done for the day. Thank Goddess.

I finished lunch a bit late, but that was all right. I'd eaten a slightly late breakfast, and then I had the misfortune of breaking two glasses in the kitchen. Couldn't hold the two glasses in my hands. (Part of the shoulder issues, which are getting worse.)

When Tammy and SteveR showed up, we got ready for gaming and discussed what we were going to do. Tammy decided that she wanted to give me the Sunday off from gaming (since tomorrow is my birthday), so SteveR agreed with her that we'd do a board game, and I didn't run Torg: Eternity. When it came down to it, we played a game of The Princes of Machu Picchu for the afternoon.

About 2 o'clock or so, the accident occurred. Tammy had her tall glass of water on the gaming table (which I've repeatedly told her not to do over the years), and she accidentally dumped a third of the glass on the table, soaking part of the game and several of the counters, as well as getting SteveR pretty wet and part of the living room carpet under the table. Several of the counters and a large summary tile got soaked, and are pretty useless for playing the game now, as they haven't dried out completely. And the large tile is...squishy and bendy. The other counters are starting to peel apart. Anyway, I was pretty annoyed as you can imagine, but didn't comment on it (though my face showed my feelings, I guess), and we re-started the game and had a pretty good afternoon of it.





I didn't play very well, distracted by what had happened and the shoulder pain that I was in despite trying not to move around too much. Didn't manage to get myself a High Priest until late in the game, though I did respectably when the final Victory Points were counted out.

The Princes of Machu Picchu is a game that I really like, though I hadn't played the game in some time. Overall, a decent afternoon of board gaming marred by a few bad things and silly things.

Oh, the black forest cake was pretty good! :)
