A Game of Goa
Another Tuesday evening session, and now here I was with the euro-lovers and math (and AP) wizards of galore, Marco and Peter. No better chance to prove myself - or rather, lose some points for the ranking
Predictably, everything went as expected, with Marco, the most experienced of us, taking the lead and looking really solid, with his lead seemingly unattainable.
However, he wasn't getting the expedition cards he needed, so anything was possible. Peter was doing nicely and racking up points across the board. His final push to grab a 4-pointer with the 6 product tile for 4 points and grabbing 30 gold by selling all his goods with an exploration card (yes, he was the goods master) all but made up for the deficit, though his poor luck with the exploration cards didn't sit well with him.
I, in the meantime, had made a few mistakes in the middle of the game - the time when I'm weakest in this game - and had missed out on winning ANY bid in two consecutive rounds. This cost me the game, since I did grab some nice points in the exploration card section at the end.
1+ Peter 43 (most money)
1 Marco 43
3 Michiel 39
