Mazal tov to Jon on becoming a grandfather today, November 7.
David: Jon trounced me once, and the second time he only beat me.
Jon: We drafted Ixalan block cards. I had a lot of vampires.

Third week in a row – Jon beat me by one point, I beat him by one last week, David won both times. The scores are higher in a 3-player game. The game is good, all the actions interact and affect each other, but that makes the decisions complicated. Plus I didn’t understand some of the craft building effects, so I played too slowly and took back a few moves. The other did too, but didn’t take as long. I had good cards but didn’t manage to leverage them early enough, Jon and David also had good cards.

I was around 15 points behind the first 3 rounds, none of us thought I’d catch up. Jon went first and got a good set of 3 for the middle of his board, the other set of 3 was off to the side so David took something else. Jon took the 1 the whole game so always went first. I was able to get 5 reds, and was planning on one horizontal row. I managed to also get two vertical rows on the last round, so my placements gave me a lot of points, plus I got 26 points in bonuses.
