We were all surprised that I won, and that Jon came in last – we all thought Jon was winning, especially during the first half of the game. Jon and Haim had factories early, before their coffee buildings. I had a tobacco monopoly once I finally got it, and took the 6 ship for it. I kept producing which gave Jon and Haim tons of money, Haim had 17 even after getting a big building, Jon had about 13. I focused on producing and shipping because I had no money; I took Customs House after Jon took Guild Hall, he also had Fortress, Haim had the other two. When Haim bought a Large Warehouse mid-game, Jon said it wasn’t worth it in a 3-player game, and we let Haim switch. During the game he tossed at least 5 goods that he would have kept with LW. Jon tossed a few more goods than I did, we didn’t have warehouses. So Haim might have won with LW. Jon had Harbor. Jon thinks we may have made mistakes with my shipping points, I don’t think so but it’s frustrating not to be sure – Jon usually has a good sense of what’s going on in games, better than I do. Haim keeps requesting to play this so he can improve, he did very well and we may stop giving him corn to start.
Jon+, Haim, Allegra
Twists: Double card effects, Can’t take the same two actions in a row. First play for Allegra, who seemed to catch the spirit of the game when she enjoyed causing the other two to each lose 6 dollars. Jon got to 20 with an invention that gave points for his other inventions.
Nadine 49, Gili 42, Zvi 39
Zvi’s first play. Gili and I were competing, she didn’t get cards she needed at one point.
