Gili taught this to Elisheva, and then we filled Josh in when he came, and reviewed with Eszter. First play for Elisheva and Josh, Eszter had played once. I was ahead in money most of the game, but ran out from high bidding and lower income, and was limited on cards so I didn’t get any card bonus points at the end. Eszter did well at bidding; Elisheva and Josh didn’t understand that you could score for more than one set of pyramids. Gili had bad luck with cards. I was first at the end, so we started with my scoring, I had 25 points in pyramids, but nothing else, not even money points. We scored Eszter third, and she dramatically passed me by one point.

This game is pretty Fluxx-like, but people still try to think because sometimes what you do has an effect, usually if you’re last. I had zero points going into the last round, despite having the ‘switch two color point cards’ the whole game. It was never worthwhile to play it, first round I was going to switch yellow for red, but Elisheva, with support, was ahead in red, and I wasn’t ahead in anything. Gili cancelled one round. Josh and I were even on the tie-breaker of points from round cards. Gili translated all the cards into Hebrew for her kids, who like the game.
