We went to BHH last night and it was strange since none of the occupants of the house were playing games with us.  We had a few drinks and I played a fun game with Adam and Brian called Imperial Settlers.  It is a dumbed down version of New Era which is good in many ways and not as good in many ways.  I liked the theming and removal of many of the restrictions.  I also didn’t feel like I was desperate for resources the whole time.  I had control of the board for most of the game, but Adam had some really good early scoring cards that got him the game.  I was able to destroy two of them but not in time.
