The Moscow Bear has the ball

Lincoln arrives and is masked
Ari and one of the Nitro Bros. (David)
Lincoln negotiates terms with local childrens
Planning. Serious planning going on here.
This one is Pamda
The players gather
They anticipate the action.
C.M. the Gonzalez, masked and ready for action!
Lincoln chooses his weapon... er, ball.
He was new to us and could move swiftly.
Ari dons his mask...
...and his nose.
Gonzalez on the move!
The Gonzalez in sneaky stealth mode.
The Gonzalez perched upon the Moscow Bear
The game called for sitting.
No doubt a plan in being hatched.
What happened to Lincoln?
Lefthandedsnail expresses something (important?)
C.M. explains to Waldo how to win.
Why are Walrus & Pamda in a tree?
Walrus & Pamda are in a tree because they are playing Calvinball!
Guess what this is.
Dogpile the Moscow Bear!
It appears that Walrus has won.
Yes, that is the Calvinball! stuck up in that tree.
How to get it down?
C.M. has an idea!
We shall throw balls at it!
Throw balls until it breaks free!
We'll throw anything really.
We'll even try to climb the tree.
Lincoln gets some form of crown?
This photo perfectly sums up the entire game.

Good game, particularly getting the ball up in the tree. Extra points.

It took us several hours to realize that Corey didn't actually know how to play Duck, Duck, Goose.

(I think that was his name anyway...apologies if it wasn't).

Yes, that is Corey who was inept at Duck, Duck, Goose.

Ha! I just now noticed that at some point during the game C.M. got ahold of my Senator Jacket with my Hand-Made-By-Dax SFØ badge. You look sharp in it my friend.
