Game Journal: 18–19 Aug

18 Aug: I arrived at game night late because of volunteering and sat out a 7-player game of Spyfall to grab snacks and avoid being the spy.

We split into 2 groups, one playing 5-player Small World and the other playing 5-player Dead of Winter. We played the scenario where we have to completely search two locations. I got the secret objective where I have to hold 3 food at the end of the game and was dealt 3 food. So I spent the entire game with my cook making food in the colony while my truck driver drove around (no exposure for moving) searching and putting up barricades.

Shauna’s objective was to have the most characters at the end of the game. Since she started with the firefighter character, who is really good at finding outsiders, she easily completed that and ended up with 7 characters. She also had the fortune teller, which helped us navigate crises.

While we didn’t start with any characters that draw and keep an extra card while searching, we completed the objective with plenty of actions to spare on the last turn. No one acted particularly traitor-ish.
