Games Played 18 September 2013

10 in attendance this week, including 2 more newcomers in Steve & Sayaka. According to my records a total of 31 different people have attended our meetings so far this year, 28 of whom have been more than once.

The main games were the two most played of the year, that is Tzolk'in and Power Grid. Power Grid was played on the Northern Europe board omitting Finland, it was a 5 player game, although Steve S & Sayaka played as a team. The game had a slow beginning with several high value plants making it into the market early (including 31,32,33), these were bought but the expenditure prevented fast expansion by the buying players. The game was brought to a premature end by Dave (who didn't seem to think he would be in with a chance had the game been allowed to continue), but I only needed to connect one city to match him and won on the money tie break by a fair margin. It seemed strange that I had only bought 3 plants and still had #6 in service (6 is viable on this board with Trash starting at 5, while Oil and Coal both start at 3.

Power Grid - 120 Mins.

  1. Tzolkin was as tense as ever. I might actually be getting worse at this game the more I play.
