Participants: Jon, Gili, Mace

Game night started at 8, since I had to drop some people (including Nadine) at a wedding, which I couldn’t stay at. I said some hellos, and then returned.

Steam

Jon 70ish, Mace 55ish, Gili 52ish.

First play for Mace, second for Gili. I didn’t write the scores down. I was allowed to choose any game I wanted, and Gili was willing to play this again, though she had done very poorly last time. This time she did much better (though she still lost).

We had very little intersection, and only once or twice made any deliveries on someone else’s track. So the one negative factor of Steam, which is kingmaking, didn’t come into play. Also, three players gives you a great selection of available roles to choose from; it’s much more painful with 4 or 5 players.

In our game, I stated on the East Cost and expanded straight west. Gili started on the “south” and expanded straight north. Mace started in the “southwest” expanded north. I managed to keep a higher income and also build more links. That kept me ahead for most of the game. Gili and Mace were neck and neck for most of the game, with Gili ahead in point, but Mace ahead in links.

  1. Steam was fun. I'd play it again and would be interested in seeing what play would be like with 4 or 5 players. It would necessitate a lot more interaction/conflict I think .. which is good šŸ™‚
