Playing Settlers with Matt 7 Mark

Originally uploaded by iChris.

Finally broke down and picked up a copy of Settlers of Catan.  Matt and Mark were nice enough to teach me how to play so I didn't have to bother with the instruction manual.  To no one's surprise, Mark managed to win.  :)

Then we played it with my family after Thanksgiving supper and Sue took home the 'W'.  After putting myself in a hole with my initial settlement placement, I went for the development card strategy and nearly pulled it out by buying 3 straight victory point cards.

I think I just crossed a line to being even more nerdy than I was yesterday at this time.  Awesome.
