Welcome to visitor Rachel from the UK. She works with a non-profit partnering with MATI, so she’ll be back.

First play for Rachel and Elad, so they did extremely well, second play for Haim who also did well. We gave them some tips after teaching the game, but they came up with their own strategies. I should have been competition for Jon, but instead came in last. Jon did a really good job planning and implementing his winning strategy – in addition to 45 points from Kahunas with lots of Tikis, he was often first in round points. I wasted resources trying to be first in round points, I should have just used my two 4 point surfers, though I did come in second once or twice. I had the boat and surfer multiplier, Jon thought he had it, and was ahead or tied with me in boats. I don’t think the extra fruit compensated enough for turn order first round: Rachel, Haim, Jon, Nadine, Elad.
Rachel got 6 pts per arrow chip, Elad had full fruits, and Haim had 4 villages and Kahunas, and was first in rounds points in the last round.
Sushi Go Party!

First play for Elad, Haim and Rachel. The right level and length for the end of the evening.
