Sunday, I took a train to the city to hang out with Nick.  I showed up about an hour late, but was the second person there.  We hung out for a good while.  A few others came over, and we played a round of Ticket to Ride.  It worked out really well for me, since everyone else was concentrated in another part of the board.  I was having a really good time, and made a total of 138 points, completely destroying all the other players.
