We played a game of TI3 - Twilight Imperium - on Sunday with our gaming friend Cory. I'm green. Cory was blue and Steve was red. It was Cory's first time playing the game, but he's a seasoned gamer, so we figured he'd pick it up quickly. He did. And he won.

Steve attacked one of my hexes and took it over.
Symon snoozed while we played. He usually comes out to greet Cory, but then settles down someplace to nap. He knows Cory is a fellow Cat Person (he has a Symon Cat named Tigger).
