Sukkot Games Day 5779

Thank you to everyone who brought tables, chairs, snacks and games, and helped set up and clear up. A special thank you to Gili for taking care of the dinner order; for future reference Burgers Bar completely messed up by not putting names on the burgers. And thank you to Lorenzo for the m&m’s!

Antike

I don’t have the scores.

Azul

Nadine 63, Rafi  54, Mishi  41

Mishi 79, Rafi  62, Nadine 48

I started teaching this; Jon objected and took over. This was the first time I played correctly. Rafi and Mishi liked the game, and wanted to play again once they understood how it worked.

Ben 104, Yosef 86, Yael 72, Gili 65

Belfort

Gili 44, Yael 32, Ofir 32, Efi 26

Bridge

Several groups played during the day. Lorenzo played for the first time and did well.

Castles of Burgundy

Yosef 222, Jon 218, other player 170

First play for the other two.

Clans of Caledonia

Roi 173, Nadine 155, Binyamin 127, Mishi 115

We played with a few clans I haven’t played with: Roi delta discount, Nadine extra contracts, Binyamin extra guy and shipping, Mishi factory discount. Everyone took advantage of their abilities. First play for all of them.

Crokinole

Ben 145, Abie 25

Many more games were played.

Euphoria

Avi, Shalom and his kids.

Five Tribes

Ben 185, Aaron 158, Roi 144

Nadine, Rafi, Mishi, Yosef B, scoresheet is missing.

Hawaii

Gili 80, Yael 74, Aaron 68, Binyamin 66

Lords of Waterdeep

Ben 153, David 150, Avraham 138

Magic

Jon, David++

Notre Dame

Avraham R  63, Nadine 57, Yosef B 32, Mishi 28

First play for them. Yosef and Mishi didn’t realize how important it was to not be overrun by rats too early in the game, and weren’t able to recover. I made one mistake which lost me the game – I took money in order to go the Notre Dame, but then realized I didn’t have a cube, and you can’t go in with cubes already used. Avraham did well, and eventually had 4 pieces in the park.

R-Eco

Nadine 14, Mishi 7,  Ophir 6, Rafi 2, Efi 2

Yosef B 16, Nadine 6, Lorenzo 6, Mishi 3

Everyone likes this as a filler, new to most of them.

Signorie

David 168, Lorenzo 167.5, Tzvi 145

An exciting finish, though I’m not sure you can have half points.

Tichu

Jon: I trounced David in half a Tichu game and then he trounced me in a whole game later. I trounced him because he overbid. He trounced me because he had all the good cards.

Tigris and Euphrates

Jon 11, Assaf, Tvi with around 6 and 7.

First play for them.

Trajan

Avi 123, Jon 105, Yochai 103, Assaf 82

Year of the Dragon

David 110, Gili 98, Binyamin 86

 

One thought on “Sukkot Games Day 5779

  1. I’d like to take exception to Jon’s comment:

    “I trounced David in half a Tichu game and then he trounced me in a whole game later. I trounced him because he overbid. He trounced me because he had all the good cards.”

    I’d like to, but unfortunately I can’t 😦
