A warm welcome to SF this week (no PH, AL didn’t being Science Fiction to games night – though that would have been pretty neat, SF’s Superman shoes sufficed quite nicely).
With SF being a little new to the whole gaming thing, we decided to go old school and bedazzle him with Settlers of Catan…with the Seafarers expansion to make it more interesting for those more familiar with the base game.
From the get go, PH (Green) demonstrated his immense deducing capablilites by taking five minutes to place his first Settlement. This did indeed go on to be a long game.
SF (Red) streaked into the lead, first with a new Settlement then with the longest road. PH also dominated the small portion of the board he was able to occupy. AL (White) and MC (Blue) barely did very much of anything. MC did make the best Catan-Bot though, while PH got cards almost every single roll.
AL then started to expand, stealing the longest road off SF. PH claimed the largest army and the first City.
MC was the first to land on another island and claim a gold mine (which produced all of 1 time). SF was next to reach an island with AL claiming 2. PH, being all blocked in didn’t claim any.
AL then revealed he had the winning VP as a card, during SF’s turn, making us all play one fruitless turn so he could play it, then realised he had enough points to have won during his last turn anyway.
AL – 15
MC – 7
PH – 13
SF – 9
