Participants: Nadine, Jon, David, Daniel Gili
Magic: The Gathering
I don’t remember much, but I took the first game easily and David took the second with difficulty.
Among the Stars
David 78+, Jon 78-, Nadine 68
Second play for each of them. We played without special powers. They are not that impressed with the game, which is a shame. My requirements from a game go down with the playtime, and the playtime is not high here, once people are used to how to play. But I guess it’s still a little long for them.
We ended on a tie, with David having more locations.
Jon 54, David, Nadine, Gili, Daniel
First play for Daniel. Nadine and David don’t play five player too often. I was first, followed by Gili, David, Nadine, and Daniel. I took a strong building strategy, while Gili and David were feeding into each other’s shipping. Nadine and Daniel also had some shipping, but no one had anywhere near my building points. I had two large buildings, including Guild Hall, and the last large building remained unbought. I had a tobacco monopoly for a few rounds at the beginning. I also had a Small Warehouse so that I didn’t fall entirely behind in shipping: I ended with 11 shipping points, to David’s 30.
Daniel did pretty well, although we kept giving him unasked for advice (often contradictory).
David, Jon, Nadine, Gili, Daniel
First play for Daniel. Gili gave some of her clues in Hebrew (which Daniel doesn’t speak yet).
