Games Night 17th April 2018

Another quick summary of a games night that happened nearly a month ago.
This week four of us played:

by Hexagames.
Dice were rolled, barrels were bought and sold, installations were built and demolished and not all that many doubles were rolled.
HG managed to not strike oil until a pumping station cost $90 million so didn’t bother.

KV announced the billion thus putting us into the endgame.
Final scores:
HG: 1132
KV: 1593
MC: 1887
PH: 1777
Everyone reached the billion, but MC did it better.

Games Night 17th November 2016

Tonight’s games was a 3 player outing of:

MC kicked off by spending all of his money on 8 drilling rigs, 2 gas stations and 1 refinery.
PH and EM spent more conservatively with 1 refinery, 1 gas station and numerous drilling rigs.
A surprisingly small number of doubles was rolled during this game, forcing the selling price of gasoline down to single figures with just a few doubles to push it up.
At no point was either Prosperity nor Recession reached.
PH was the first to strike oil.
By the time EM struck oil and could afford their one and only pumping station, it retailed at $90 million dollars.
MC announced their reaching of the billion.

At game end the final net worth of each player was:
EM: $795,000,000
MC: $1,967,000,000
PH: $1,895,000,000
Hooray for MC!

To round off the evening, we finished of with a game of:

EM played as Time Travelling Steampunks or Steampunk Time Travellers
MC played as Zombie Warriors or Warrior Zombies
PH played as Orc Fairies or Fairy Orcs

Final scores:
EM: 18
MC: 9
PH: 9
Well done EM, you wiped the floor with both of us.

Games Night 15th September

Tonight’s game was:
While waiting for PH, we kicked off with:
In the time it took SF to comprehend some of the rules a bit, PH had turned up. However, we saw the game through to its conclusion. AL was the first to drop out, closely followed by SF. MC was next leaving PH still standing tall with 3 dice left.
Onto McMulti…
MC spent all his money on 8 drilling rigs, 2 gas stations and 1 refinery
PH bought 12 drilling rigs, 1 gas station and 1 refinery
AL went for 13 drilling rigs, 1 gas station and 1 refinery
SF built 10 drilling rigs, 1 gas station and 1 refinery
McMulti in progress
This game saw a long time before any serious oil pumping happened and as such, the common and foreign markets were rapidly running out of the black stuff.
Quite a few doubles were rolled, sky-rocketing the price of gasoline and putting us through a depression, during which we saw a heavy investment in facilities. Then Prosperity was attained…and not a single double was rolled for the rest of the game.
AL struck oil first and MC struck last (costing about 50 million by that time). AL turned down his fifth potential well pump at $110 million.
MC took a chance and sold off two of his refineries early, declared the billion and hoped for a double to crop up. No such luck.
The final scores saw all four players reaching the (American) Billion:
AL: 1,778,000,000
MC: 1,789,000,000
PH: 1,814,000,000
SF: 1,349,000,000
The top 3 were shockingly close, but PH was the player of the night winning both games. Well done PH!
