NESFA game day

Got there really late again, but chatted interestingly a bit about Somerville water supply, and Boston. Supposedly the Big Dig found *wooden* water mains still in use, not on any map, maybe dating to the early 1800s. Logs hollowed out, carved with male and female joints, and with iron banding around the join. Supposedly the hard water minerals precipitate out less, different surface chemistry, and as long as the pipe is below the water table and anoxic it doesn't rot fast. The http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Molasses_Disaster got mentioned too.

Played 3-player Settlers, one handily; played Zombie Dice, just lost; played my first Seven Wonders and tied for first. 49-48-44. Not that I had much clue of what I was doing. There were a bunch of anime-themed games around too: Anima, "Whack a Cat-Girl", another one based on a particular series. Also a Discworld board game, and Thud.

Met Ginnilee from the Bujold list, too.
