Hawaii

We were going to try to play a full game of Heaven and Ale, but we ended up being 5 players.

No Thanks

Yonah 9  Gili 13  Jon 17  Nadine a lot more

Hawaii

Jon 118  Gili 86  Aaron 83  Nadine 78  Yonah 74

First play for Yonah, Aaron hasn’t played much. Gili likes the game a lot and is good at it; Jon played well. He had 5 villages, Gili had 4, the rest of us 2. I did fruit, including the fruit god, but I could tell it wouldn’t be enough. In order to get double fruits, I couldn’t get many round points. Gili and Yonah had extra points for ropes, but only one or two. Jon and Gili had boats and the boat gods, but only single. It was the first time I didn’t take any boats, I guess not a good idea, and I usually don’t do fruit.

New to all. Avi got 3 points every turn for spears, Colin, Israel and Rosalyn won round points. I had one row and the boat multiplier, with around 6 boats. Israel had a lot of tikis and all 5 rows, no one else used that strategy.

I lose Hawaii again but win Dominion

Welcome to Colin and Avinoam!

Antike

Jon 9, Cliff 6, Colin 5

New to Cliff and Colin. Jon almost always wins anyway.

No Thanks!

Jon, Colin, Cliff

New to Colin and Cliff.

Hawaii

Gili 119,  Avinoam 100, Nadine 86

New to Avinoam who liked it, and did well. He had one long row, then added and another at the end and managed to finish it, partly to add fruits for the end game fruit scoring, and he had two of the fruit bonus tiles. Gili had the arrows tile, and finished the last 4 rows. I had all rows and lots of tikis, but not much else, and didn’t compete for round points.

Dominion

Nadine 33, Gili 30, Jon 23, Avinoam 20

I mostly got gold and took a Rabble, which hurt the others. Gili also took one, which hurt me. There was not a good selection of cards overall. Avinoam went through his whole deck almost every turn, but couldn’t buy enough victory cards. Jon took Estates when he couldn’t get a Province, he got 2 of those. I had 4 Province and 2 Duchys. Gili had good cards and would have won if she could have gotten the last Province before Avinoam.

Planets and Huts

Coloretto

Nadine 35, Gili 30, Elad 28

First play for Elad who wanted to try it. I had 4 plus 2’s.

Jon 43 Sara 42 Haim 31

Hawaii

Haim 95 Sara 90 Elana 90 Jon 87

First play for Sara, Elana had played once a while ago.

Horizons

Gili 18  Nadine 13 Assaf 12  Elad 11

Gili’s game, new to us. Elad would have gotten around 8 points on his turn right after me if I hadn’t ended the game. Not all of us understood how the scoring worked, and Gili had one rule wrong – we were supposed to each get a resource if someone built on a planet we were on. That would have sped things up a bit. There is nothing to do when it’s not your turn, and the turns aren’t so simple, with extra actions and different cards available. The game seems fine, though not super interactive even with the area control.

Dvonn

Elad 1 Jon 1

Yinsh

Elad 1 Jon 0

Azul

Nadine 69, Haim 67, Assaf 42+, Sara 41

First play for Sara and Assaf. I didn’t explain well to Assaf, so he didn’t score some points that he should have. I just edged out Haim, I had one vertical, one horizontal, and one color, Haim had one color.

Tiki Jon

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

Hawaii

Jon 114, Rachel 88, Elad 87, Haim 85, Nadine 84

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!

Jon 50, Nadine 48, Rachel 43, Elad 41, Haim 25

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