Boss monster and & wonders were the games of the evening.
JA was: , MC was: and PH found himself being .
We had a much better grasp of the game and no one was accused of cheating. MC won with 10 souls and 3 wounds, PH had 4 souls and 1 wound. My notes are too indecipherable and I’ve left it too long to state what JA got.
With PM now here, 2 rounds of 7 Wonders were next
Round 1 saw PM take the lead closely followed by MC and JA then PH. PM had an app that was supposed to help with the scoring…not sure how helpful it was.
Round 2 saw MC win by 6 points with PH and PM joint second and JA finishing in the top 5. Scoring was done using a pencil and paper.
3 Clear winners voted for tonight. McMulti, Power Grid and 7 Wonders. PM forgot to bring 7 Wonders.
We went for Power Grid.
After reacquainting ourselves with the rules, the three of us used the USA side of the board. MC was the first to acquire a solar powered plant and gained a promising start until getting totally hemmed in against the unused sections. PH and PM calmly increased in nuclear while MC invested in Waste and save money by not being able to build anything. Stage II saw MC explode out of his niche and streak across the board, catching and surpassing PH and PM. This sudden and unexpected growth continued until game end where:
PM had 14 cities but could only power 13
PH powered all 15 of his cities
MC powered all 17 of his cities.
