Five players this week and a very warm welcome to JM, thank you for joining us this evening.
HG didn’t want a late night so we kicked of with a shorter game:
by Repos Production.
We brought HG up to speed with the rules and play commenced.
Cards were played, resources were paid for, wonders were built, armies were raised and a good time was had by all.
At the game’s conclusion the final scores were:
|Civic Building VPs||19||3||33||8||11|
|Commercial Building VPs||5||0||3||9||6|
|Scientific Structure VPs||0||11||0||1||4|
DA for the win!
HG took her leave and JM was very decisive in choosing
by Gamelyn Games.
After going over the rules for JM those space dice started to roll.
DA was the first to acquire a planet, and the next, and the next.
JM unfortunately didn’t quite realise how planets worked until near the end of the game so it should be noted that she would have down much better had we picked up on that sooner.
In the end it was MC who passed the 21 VP mark first (also his secret mission was to end the game). Being the last player of the round, the game ended there and then.
Kudos to MC!
Next up we played
by Calliope Games
We really enjoyed this last week playing with 2 ships each, so we did it again here.
We played two games.
Despite the death-wish the dragons had, eating each other and leaping of the board, KV lost both his ships very early on. MC was the last to have a single ship afloat.
The dragon’s self-destructive behaviour continued in the second game. However they were still voracious enough to eliminate JM then both of MC’s ships at once. DA and KV doggedly persevered for a goodly while until DA found he couldn’t steer and ended up in the belly of a dragon.
Horay for KV! It only took 5 games to see victory!
To round off the evening we played
by Flatlined Games
DA really has it in for that guy in the chicken suit.
KV and MC raced ahead and were neck and neck at the end of round 2 at 19 points apiece.
Unfortunately for MC it all fell apart when both his housemates were eliminated very early on gaining him only 2 more points. The final standing housemate belonged to no one, but KV was the first runner up.
Huzzah for KV!
Thanks to all our players for a fantastic year of playing games.
May you all have a very merry Christmas and hope to see you all again in the new year.
