Yay David!

Havoc

David 38, Jon 30, Aaron 29, Haim 24

First play for Aaron and Haim.

Raiders of the North Sea

Nadine 54, Nadine F 51, Gili 42

Gili brought this, first play for all of us. A nice game, not difficult to learn, but it is tight, so each action matters. I started by investing in fighting power, and mostly managed to avoid Valkyries so I didn’t lose cards. You have to manage several things but it works well. Without planning to, I took one of the tiles Gili wanted, which meant she couldn’t use her plunder efficiently. None of us used the stealing action which I don’t think I like because you’ll steal what you need, not select the player who is furthest behind, if you can even tell. The game is an award-winner, in the top 100 on bgg.

Azul

Nadine 86, Nadine F 67, Gili 63

Nadine F was trying to take into consideration what the rest of us needed, which makes sense, but I complained because it made the game too slow.

Concordia

David 141, Aaron 123, Jon 114, Haim 99

Turns out that we’ve been playing wrong – you have to pay double or more to build houses where one is already built. David focused on cloth.

Tichu

Jon Haim, Nadine David

We didn’t finish the whole game, but Jon and Haim were ahead when we stopped. We set one of Jon’s 3 Tichus, and they set one of David’s by playing 2 bombs.

David found and brought plastic Tichu cards to replace Jon’s almost unplayable decks. The cards are smooth and slippery, with different art, a major improvement!
