Happy Birthday Jon! (English), and David! (Hebrew)
Lorenzo, Jon, David, Nadine
Jon’s new game. We spent time figuring out how to set up and play. Each one of eight rounds is the same, with some extra scoring after the fourth and last. We had a mitigated version of the luck mechanic, but I rolled terribly and Jon rolled well, you can either get an extra action, a penalty action, or nothing. If the luck evens out then it doesn’t matter that much, and it probably would have. In addition I made a few mistakes, so I was behind. We stopped after two rounds because we understood how the game worked and it was taking a long time. We’ll try again, possibly with some rules adjustments. A nice game, but repetitive, and there does not seem to be much player interaction.

First play for David and Lorenzo, they liked it as a quick game. We may have played wrong since I don’t remember everything and the rules are in Chinese. Or Japanese.
Jon, David+ Nadine, Aaron
We were going to play to 500 because it was late, when we stopped Jon and David were just shy of it, and Aaron and I were negative. We would, or should, have gotten better hands later in the game, but Jon and David are both better players.
