First play for Sara. First time for me without the preset starting cards. I was last, which is a handicap that should receive compensation, but I also should have played better. I made several mistakes in my favor, one I was able to undo when I noticed, but not the other one – I took items from all my buildings on one round, not just one from each area, and used the cubes. I may have played the cubes wrong which may compensate a bit, I forgot that I could use the eye cube action twice. Even if I legitimately came in second, I’m not so into the game. It’s fine, it’s clear what to do. But frustrating to get blocked, you’re not supposed to have only one action available which is what happened to me, and Lorenzo took it before me. Lorenzo had a good card combination with two money multipliers. Aaron understands the game well and was ahead the whole time.
