Participants: Jon, Nadine, Gili, Nisan
We got to teach Nisan a game.
Castles of Burgundy
Gili 232, Nisan 231, Jon 220, Nadine 214
First play for Nisan. Nisan went first and, on our advice, picked up the bonus tile that gives 3 points per type of good sold. Gili took the bonus tile that gives 4 points per type of animal. Nadine and I fought over mines and the building that gives workers, and so stymied each other somewhat.
Nisan also got the bonus for completed section tiles, and he acquired 4 of them. In total, he ended with more than 60 bonus points, more than Gili. Gili has the second most, but had gained more points from her animals and sections completed early.
I also had small sections, but I couldn’t complete enough of them early enough. Nadine had larger sections. At game’s end, Nadine gave up one set of bonuses for another which allowed me to score more than her, even though I also gave up one set of bonuses instead of another as a return favor. So we both could have scored less, but I would have scored even more less.
