Session Summary – 24 September 2008


Only 5 this week. Initially Mike, Andy & I played a game of Tsuro and then we were joined by Dave & Ben for another game. Dave wasn't sure whether he might be called away early so at this point we split the group and he and Ben played Memoir '44, while the rest of us played On the Underground.
We have not played this for some time, it being a game that I like, but maybe others are not so keen on. It is certainly true that it is better with fewer players such as we had here. This was a close game with the lead changing between the 3 of us on multiple occasions, we all being keen, when there was a choice (and we ourselves weren't included) to award points to he who was furthest back. Both Mike & I were able to score a few points by making loops.
The game ended on my turn and there were no final turns of playing track without moving the passenger as Mike who was next in line was the start player. I was able to give myself a bit of margin and I thought I was also forced to give Andy a point taking him ahead of Mike. It was after pointed out that I had a choice between the 2 of them, so it's a good job I failed to spot this. Mike has a certain amount of justification to claim a moral tie for second place.

Dave & Ben split their Memoir' 44 games between them. The first game was "Operation Goodwood" with Ben as the Germans, Dave as the British. The second was "St. Mere Eglise" with Dave as the Americans, Ben the Germans. In both cases the results followed history.

After these it was Tsuro again to finish the evening, Dave sat the first game out putting Memoir away. The results of the 4 games in total are below. Mike has a good record at this with 2 firsts and 2 seconds during the evening, the other wins going to Ben and Dave. This is a wonderful filler to play at either end of the evening, although it's a pity that my record with it is not so wonderful.
