Passover Games Day 5779

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.

Antike

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.

Civilization

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.

Crokinole

Ofer and kids

Hannabi x2lll

Yochai, Eliezer, Israel

They won with 21points the first game, 20 points the second one, a cooperative game.

Magic

Jon++ David.

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.

We didn’t finish the first game, Nadine, Ben, Avi, Chaim. I think.

David/Nadine+, Jon/Haim

David/Nadine, Jon/Haim+

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.

New to all. Jon: I also taught them Village and they played that wrong too, taking several extra turns they were not supposed to.

 

 

 

Around the World

Magic

Jon++ David

David: At the beginning of the second game I had out 3 powerful creatures (a flyer, a pumper (1B->+1/+1) and (I think) a tapper (1W->tap target creature). Jon had a do nothing 2/3 creature. He then played an inexpensive red card that does two damage to all creatures! Killed all 3 of mine, and left his own intact. Beautiful move, but very painful from my end.

Jon: The end of the first game I was similarly lucky. He had me down to 4 points while he was at 11. I had two ground creatures and two 3/3 fliers and he had no flying defence so I could do 6 points before he crushed me . And my mana was low at 5 lands, only one green. I topdecked a card that gave all of my cretaures +3/+3 but I needed 7 Mana to cast with 2 green. But it was a card that let you tap creatures to reduce the cost by 1 Mana each of the creature’s color I tapped both of my ground creatures, which were green, and all of my land to cast the spell, and my two fliers we’re then able to do 6 points each.

David: And one of the two creatures was a 1 casting cost white OR green for a 2/1 creature!

Traders of Osaka

David 18, Haim 18, Nadine 16, Jon less

Tichu

Nadine/Jon 1100  Haim/David 500

We played while waiting for more players. Jon and I had good cards and made Grand Tichus. David missed a Tichu when Jon had a bomb. I played wrong at the end of a Tichu, fortunately it didn’t matter.

Lords of Waterdeep

Nadine F 142, Lorenzo 128, Martin 109, Gili 109

First play for all but Gili.

Tigris and Euphrates

Jon 10, Lorenzo 5, Martin 5

First play for Lorenzo and Martin, they liked it. Lorenzo had a lot of points, but not evenly spread which you need.

Power Grid

David+, Nadine, Haim

We stopped after buying plants in Step 3. I realized David could probably build to 17, and I knew I couldn’t, so I asked him if he could, and we stopped, I couldn’t build to 16. He could power 16, good job. We played on the Poland board, first time for all of us. We used the middle 3 regions. Martin came over to see and liked the map, he’s from Czech Republic.

 

 

Sukkot Games Day 5779

Thank you to everyone who brought tables, chairs, snacks and games, and helped set up and clear up. A special thank you to Gili for taking care of the dinner order; for future reference Burgers Bar completely messed up by not putting names on the burgers. And thank you to Lorenzo for the m&m’s!

Mishi 79, Rafi  62, Nadine 48

I started teaching this; Jon objected and took over. This was the first time I played correctly. Rafi and Mishi liked the game, and wanted to play again once they understood how it worked.

Roi 173, Nadine 155, Binyamin 127, Mishi 115

We played with a few clans I haven’t played with: Roi delta discount, Nadine extra contracts, Binyamin extra guy and shipping, Mishi factory discount. Everyone took advantage of their abilities. First play for all of them.

Notre Dame

Avraham R  63, Nadine 57, Yosef B 32, Mishi 28

First play for them. Yosef and Mishi didn’t realize how important it was to not be overrun by rats too early in the game, and weren’t able to recover. I made one mistake which lost me the game – I took money in order to go the Notre Dame, but then realized I didn’t have a cube, and you can’t go in with cubes already used. Avraham did well, and eventually had 4 pieces in the park.

R-Eco

Nadine 14, Mishi 7,  Ophir 6, Rafi 2, Efi 2

Everyone likes this as a filler, new to most of them.

Signorie

David 168, Lorenzo 167.5, Tzvi 145

An exciting finish, though I’m not sure you can have half points.

Tichu

Jon: I trounced David in half a Tichu game and then he trounced me in a whole game later. I trounced him because he overbid. He trounced me because he had all the good cards.

Tigris and Euphrates

Jon 11, Assaf, Tvi with around 6 and 7.

First play for them.

A new cute filler game, with similarities to No Thanks.

Bunny Kingdom

Lorenzo 157, Haim 123, Jon 120, Nadine 111

We were surprised that Lorenzo won. The game seems to have to much luck, but we’re all willing to try it again and see. Lorenzo used a fish strategy which helped him win. One of Haim’s new games.

Lords of WaterDeep

Zvi 110, Yael 108, Nadine S 105, Noam 94

First play for everyone except Yael; Jon taught it.

Tichu

Jon / Haim 1040 Nadine / Lorenzo 660

Nadine: It was pretty much a learning game for Lorenzo, he hasn’t played much, but he is improving. On my first Tichu I had a straight and an Ace, Haim and Lorenzo went out after me. Jon had a good Tichu hand with two Aces and the Dragon and two straights, and he didn’t get to play a single card. I probably would have still beaten him even if he had called Tichu. Jon called Tichu a few more times, they had better cards than we did. When they were over 900 and we were below 300, I called Grand Tichu twice in a row, and then Lorenzo called it. The first one I only had the Dragon, and got an Ace. Lorenzo passed me a king. Jon called Tichu, he had a good hand, and knew I called on nothing. I managed to make it with Lorenzo’s help. I made the next one also, I had a better hand with a long straight, even though Lorenzo again passed me a king. Lorenzo missed his Tichu, he had too many low cards, but it was a good try.
