As an interlude, most of us gathered Chez Graydon for a game of Belfort. It's a fun game of setting your elves and dwarves to acquiring resources and building structures in your cute little fantasy city, earning victory points for various things. A lot of flexibility and options for you to strategerize about. After a couple rounds, I pretty much had the rules down, but unfortunately, there are only 7 rounds. But I stumbled along fairly well, and wound up safely in the middle of the pack by the end. More importantly, I made sure that Graydon lost fair and square, rather than losing in the tie-breaker.
