Thank you to everyone who helped set up and clean up, and brought snacks and games. I came in last a lot, and only won one game of Tichu, and lost one. I don’t have info on all the games.
Jon: I taught Antike to my friend Ilana’s husband and their 4 kids. The boys all picked up the rules (sometimes one picked up a rule and had to explain it, or a different one) faster than the father. The girl played for a few rounds and decided to play with her phone instead, I didn’t see how far they got. And they had to play on the floor. So when they left right after, I thought that they didn’t have a good time. But Ilana said that they were happy to learn a new game and want to buy it.
Israel 113, Assaf 96, Ishai 70
Binyamin 77 Haim 70 Gili 60
Rosalynn 92, Avi 71, Azriel 65, Nechemia 38
David+, Cliff, Gili/Jon
Jon: I inherited a bad position from Gili but turned it into second position by mid-game. The only reason Cliff and I had any chance was because David didn’t strike us down with disasters when he could have. It was obvious that David was way ahead and we could not catch up, so I asked to end early and save two hours or so.
Clank! x 2
Binyamin 131, Haim 89, Gili 74
Cliff 73, Binyamin 66, Mishi 51, Elianna 32
Jon: Binyamin played with the rules so wrong that they made the game trivial, long, and boring with no decisions. And then he said he didn’t like the game because it was too long with no decisions.
Ofer and kids
Yochai, Eliezer, Israel
They won with 21points the first game, 20 points the second one, a cooperative game.
Isle of Skye x2
David 62 Gili 49 Jon 62 . Jon and David share victory , same amount of money
Avi 83, Benyamin 73, Mishi – 72, Elianna – 57
Avi: we almost surely played the game wrong.
Lords of Waterdeep
Israel 180, Assaf 163, Ishai 145
Jon: I had a killer deck. We both played BU.
Pioneer Days x2
Avi 80, Lior 77, Nadine 43
First play for all. We forgot to advance the disasters at the end. I drew 4 gold chips, all had one gold, instead of 2 or 3, not that it would have mattered much. I had two equipments for cattle, but cattle hardly ever came up.
David 67, Jon 46, Nadine 34
First play for David. He had a good cattle setup, after I didn’t take the get a second cattle chip, this game cattle came up a lot. I made mistakes in both games, in this one I lost all my people on the last round, they would have given me 18 points.
Nechemia+, Avi, Rosalynn, Azriel
Azriel+, Rosalynn, Nechemia, Zvi, Haim
Raiders of the North Sea
Gili 73, Eszter 66, Lior 53
Ben 154, Avi/Eszter 107, Zvi 105, Nadine 103
Newish to them.
Jon 10, Nadine 8, David -5
First play for Nadine and David.
Ben, Assaf, Rabi, Nadine S
Izaa: First time for us. Rabi won a good 50 points ahead of me with Nadine S not far behind.
I have a lost gold cube from the game.
We didn’t finish the first game, Nadine, Ben, Avi, Chaim. I think.
I couldn’t believe how bad Jon and Haim’s cards were, we won easily. But then we played again, and our cards were even worse. Usually it’s more even during a game.
Binyamin S, Elad, Elianna
Binyamin S 58, Chaim 46, Yehiel 39, Yohanan 38
New to all. Jon: I also taught them Village and they played that wrong too, taking several extra turns they were not supposed to.
