Java is the second game in the Kramer/Kiesling game series that also includes Tikal and Mexica. The game was brand new to John D. and Rob; Dick and Julie had played a few times. The special "temple of Loki" tile is the last piece played in the game. This tile was dog chewed to earn the special moniker. Dick's big last turn scoring propelled him to victory.

Cleopatra and the Society of Architects

Cleopatra is the latest over-produced game from Days of Wonder. Wonderful plastic bits hide the fact that this is basically a card game. Cleopatra was a five-player affair for the final game of the day. Rob and Dick were both feed to the crocs because of corruption. Barry went on to a big victory.
