Treat Courts like Pawns (or leave them out of the deck beforehand).

More items: 

- I have a question about Dectet, Ryan: the decks I have are Courts, which you dont mention in your rules.  Should I leave them out, or have them count as zero points, just like Pawns?  (The Courts are only available from the professionally printed Decktet decks.  Apparently I got the last 2, since the Decktet site now says those decks are out of stock until later this year.) 

- I have said Yes to Dectet without playing more than a couple of turns: time is short and I dont want to wait for the answer to my question, and its obvious that it should make the first cut.  

- Ill get to the last games later today, though again, anyone else can feel free to help.

Thanks, Eric.

Ive evaluated RAMbot Factory, after making my own spread-out volcano boards and printing them out.  (In short: the combination of RAMbots and Martian Coasters has interesting tactical possibilities, but the addition of Roborally-like board elements needs a lot of polishing and is probably unnecessary; cut.) I will do Dectet today. 

While following through on links of RAMbot Factorys designer, I found another game he did that apparently appeared in 2009: High Rise.  So I checked on all the other 2009 authors, and found two more from Josh Cole: Fleet and Oshugo.  I have added them to the "New in 2009" page; I will see if I can do them after Dectet, but if anyone else wants to, feel free.  Or, if they were kept off the list for reasons unknown to me, please say so.  This does worry me a bit about 2009 games that weve missed, from authors who dont already have games on the list.  

Hows it going on your last few games, Scott?
