I closed out Monday with the first heat of this.

After a late start the game was rather slow with a couple of new players and almost adjudicated (players wanted to make Thurn & Taxis). In the second week Deb Yaure went first and played a strong game maximizing cubes to the caravan to milk the bonus cards. She had a huge lead at the end of it. But in the third week I went first and duplicated the same feat. I came roaring back to edge Deb by a single point at the end.

Next I played Yspahan, a game I never do well at, mostly because I can never acquire enough camels to make the caravan or special buildings feasible. This happened again. I am also getting concerned about if the caravan is dominated by one player, they'll win without doing much building in the souks or the special buildings.

That happened in the game I played--but it was still good way to spend the hour.

I should be up front about this one. I had only ever played online and I didn't know too much about it there either. I was perfectly able to make legal moves and I bought some buildings and scored some points in huts. But I still don't really understand the caravans and thus got trounced.

I also ran over time with this and really wanted to play Thurn and Taxis so I let my opponents finish my last couple of moves.

I don't really have a deep understanding of Yspahan, just a general sense that I need to make buildings as quickly as possible and get in the caravan as well as I can.

The first time the caravan emptied out, I didn't manage to get into the top row, which put me behind. I think I played pretty well from there on out, but still finished third of three. The player who won rolled a pretty impressive number of ones (but he also had a lot more experience with the game and understood the cards and stuff, so he probably didn't win because of that).

I actually went 0-for-6 on Monday, as I played a heat of this just before the aforementioned T&T.

It was a little late, and I forgot what 'THE' strategy is for this game: get a ton of camels and hit the caravan area early and often. Haim Hochboim reminded me easily enough; he absolutely crushed the table, 131-81-75-56.

I got to play this one more time on Saturday night, and tried to go all out for camels. My first two actions were drawing a single card: I got the 'camel-gold conversion' card and a '3 gold' card ... and converted ALL my gold into camels. Yeah, that was a mistake; I hadn't yet built any buildings (save for the one that gives an extra camel for taking camels), and would not get any gold for much of the rest of the game.

OK, next time I start with those cards, I'll remember to hold on to them until AFTER I build the buildings that (1) let you draw a card for sending a cube to the caravan, and (2) let you move the pawn up to three spaces for free.

It still wasn't the blowout the last game was, but I was still a distant 3rd, 73-69-63-60. Next time I play this (and assuming I don't forget), I'll know better.

Andy snuck into the SF as 32nd alternate. If just one higher seeded player had checked in Sunday morning, Andy would not have had a chance to become the first player with two entries on the Perpetual Camel Trophy!
