On the off chance. :huh:......Rodney lost his cell today  >:(, he is pretty sure he had it when we left PGX but checking if anyone spotted one spotted it


Nothing was found at clean up.

Not sure how to sign up for tournament so I’m sorry if this is wrong. Could you please at william low,Chelsea low and jack low to the ticket to ride tournament.

Great. Added.

There hasn't been a lot of sign-up for Blue Lagoon. Probably due it being a lesser known game. It is quick to play and easy to learn.


Blue Lagoon is an area control and set collection game in which players manage a group of settlers spreading out over the islands of a newly discovered archipelago.

The game is played over two phases (the exploration phase followed by the settlement phase). Over the course of both phases, you will expand your presence on the board by adding one new token each turn (either a settler or a village token). The goal is to collect the resources scattered over the map by placing your tokens on top of them. In the first phase, you can place a new token anywhere you like, as long as it is touching either the lagoon OR one of your previously played tokens. In the second phase, the board is cleared, except for the villages, and now you can only expand from the villages you played in the first phase! At the end of both phases, players score points for the sets of resources they collected. Most points wins.

I've attached an overview video. I've played it twice and think it's a great game to play...

Everything should be updated to this point. If we have missed something in error please let us know.
