Jon: We built sealed decks. I barely lost the first, easily won the second, and easily lost the third.

First play for Jon and David, second for me. Everyone liked it, I think it’s balanced with different paths to victory. David and I traveled more than Jon did. Jon did well with money, but was behind in the tracks. I was low on money and guards the whole game, but ended up ahead in purple and green which I hadn’t realized give higher bonuses; I had fewer voyages than the others, but hit the two level III monastaries. David analyzed more than we did, which Jon complained about, but it paid off. And I think will decrease in future plays. David had the best automatic bonuses from cards, Jon also had some, I only had one the whole game, a 1-coin discount. The two currencies didn’t bother me now that I’m familiar with them.
