Thoughts & Observations:
  • I really have to remember to get all the Rulers cleared off before I start taking the first pictures.
  • We managed to use Single Shot Rockets for this game.
  • Even  though I didn't fire any at all.
  • Somewhere during Turn 2 one of A Team's frames got destroyed but I didn't write it down.
  • There was a lot of Station Dancing this game.
  • If you can't tell, the felt got moved around a little as people kept bumping Frames that were on the edge of the table and knocking them over.
  • I did a bit better this game, I think I needed more Spotting capability though.
  • The game came down to the final actions of the last turn.
