Second we played five-played Aladdin's Dragons, a blind bidding game which was fairly fun. It lasted six rounds, I think. After around round two or three, we declared Taco the scourge; after round three or four I was declared the scourge. On the last round, there was only one artifact to bid on, so I determined the best I could bid was 5+4, went heavy into a 4 treasure that several other people decided to go after, then in play somebody tried to nullify it, I counterspelled, and then, unable to play another artifact, the other player double-tokened and won. Thus I didn't have enough treasures to make my bid on the arifact--but it turned out the original scourge had hugely outbid us on it. Then it turned out that this brought his artifact count to 7, but no scrolls; I had 7, with 1 scroll... and another player, who had been in lastish place on the second round, but was also the only player who had played before, had 7 and 2 scrolls, so a close victory.
Meanwhile, alongside, several games of Zertz, one of the GIPF project games, but I was too busy playing AD to see how it went.
Also, I turned 35.
