Participants: Jon, Nadine, Gili, Haim, Ido, Yael, Nadine S,
Held on Tuesday to accommodate Purim.
Gili 88, Yael 84, Nadine 80, Nadine S
Second play for Gili, first play for the others. This game took a long time to teach and play, even though they played the shortened intro version and even though they triggered the game end one round early. By then, Nadine S had left early, followed by Yael. Gili sat playing the last few moves for them to finish the game. It was probably not the best choice for Nadine S, who is still a relative new player.
Still, both Gili and Nadine liked it a lot, and Yael said it was a good game.
Ido 58, Haim 54, Jon 52
First play for Ido, who picked it up quite well, as you can see. I had some bad synergy at the beginning and never really recovered. Ido completed his travels and also sold more in the market than I did, stealing away a six point sale that I was planning to make in the last round.
Ido, Haim, Jon
First play for Ido, we didn’t get to finish this; turns took a little longer than I had anticipated and Ido had to leave. We got through round 4 out of 6.
Two games of this was the only thing I was willing to play at the end of the evening.
