 7   Tikal
 10   Tichu
 7   Through the Desert
 7   Telestrations x2
 8   Modern Art

One day of gaming this week, but it was a good one. We had seven players, eight including the host's daughter, and we started with her favourite game, Telestrations. I'm a particularly terrible artist, but I enjoy the game anyway. We didn't keep score. Can you keep score? The thought hadn't really occurred to me. The point is the laughter.

After that we got into it with a 4p game of Tikal. I'd not played the game before yesterday. I have, however, played several action point games like it--Torres, Mexica, Bison. I'd rank Tikal among the better examples of the genre. I don't love the genre enough to see the need for more than one or two, but I have more interest in it than the endless variations on the worker placement genre. I don't like the downtime in Tikal, which is worse than most, and the game runs a bit long for what it is, but there is a healthy dose of strategy to the game, and I like the way the board develops. AP wasn't too bad in my game, but the scoring rounds were a bit drawn out. It was a bit worse for me, as I never drew a volcano tile and neither did the player to my left, so I generally had longer waits in between turns. I finished in the middle of the pack. I liked the game and am interested in playing again. It's a low 7, hence the colour choice above.

A 4p game of Modern Art followed. I came in a close second while overpaying on two particular auctions. I gave the win away too, so I have no one else to blame for the loss.

We followed that up with a game of Tichu. My partner and I lost roughly 1000-300, but the game was much closer than the score suggests. In the first half of the game, we were 500 points ahead. Slowly our opponents caught up and overtook us. In the last round, I called Grand Tichu on an excellent hand. One of our opponents called Tichu on a slightly better hand, if only because it included a bomb. She went out first, but barely.

We finished with 4p Through the Desert. I went for territory more than points. Again I finished somewhere in the middle, second or third.

$3.29 at Goodwill. Complete and looking crisp and new!! The mask series has definitely been on my Grail list since the beginning and after almost three years of thrifting I finally found my first one!

Rio Grande English edition 1999 (Product Code 132)

Components in excellent shape, box has some shelf wear and a slight scuff on one edge (shown in picture)

If I remember correctly, I have one half-height expedition member marker; and I've included some print outs for 2-player and "fast-play/short" games.
