Played Puerto Rico for the first time today, and it was a blast. There's little luck involved (all strategy until you're sitting next to someone who makes a mistake, then you get lucky ;).
ArjunSanyal's parents had a quiet gettogether as they had just returned from Greece and their neighbor's daughter, Kate, was celebrating her engagement to a young microbiologist, Sam. Funniest part of the evening was watching Arjun's sister's eyes glaze over when she sat down next to us and realized we were talking finance. Sorry, Dia. ;)
