Thoughts & Observations:
  • This was the debut of this table-setting.  It still requires a little work before I'll be happy with it.
  • It took us two hours to play the first turn.  We did have dinner during that time though.
  • We hammered the clock at the end of the first turn because of that.
  • We set up for a battle and it turned out to be just that.
  • We had 23 Frames on the table at the start of the game.
  • There was some interesting discussion about whom you're supposed to attack in a game.
  • I coined the phrase, "Always punch up."
  • I know Tom's frames took a little damage but I have no record of it happening.
  • I stated the large frame pieces only took one Hit before being destroyed.
  • I did some math after the game was over and figured that it should have been four Hits.
