The tin loco, which was awarded for the first player bankruptcy was claimed in a five player Rail Baron game on Friday night. The "winner" who I will not identify was a good sport about his award, and I am pleased to announce made up for it by being one of the champions listed above. New playtest games were played including India Rails, 18GA (set in Georgia), and 1857 (set in Wisconsin). Carl Burger ran an epic 1831 game to conclusion on Saturday. Some of Chris Lawson's game kits were shipped over and they were all quickly bought up. Thanks to everyone who participated and to all that provided prizes including the TGA, Winsome Games, and Rail Gamer magazine.
