Goo brought this out, and since it is a Kramer/Kiesling I have never played, I could hardy turn it down. Oz and Sai joined us and experience won out (or at least Goo won, whether it was experience or not).

By far the lightest Kramer/Kiesling I have ever played, and seemed more luck driven, though there are ways to mitigate the luck that might become more effective with experience.

Wherein the guy who just "learned" the game, beat me and should have won if he hadn't made a glaringly suboptimal move right at the end (I use quotes because even after it was over, I'm not sure he totally got it).

This game still baffles me.

It was nice to play this old favorite. It was especially nice to play it without expansions.

I taught 3 others (though I think some had played once before). I couldn't tell if they liked it, but Saint Pete is a game that flowers after a few plays. It takes a game or two to figure out that you need to manipulate the board for your position in the next phase. It was tough playing against 3 newbies, because none of them were able to do that, so if I was going 4th in the Nobles phase, I just wasn't going to get a Noble (since the other players were not removing cards to ensure they got a Noble themselves).

I still like this game. I like the engine building. I love trying to find the point where you shift your focus from income to VP. I love the scramble for Nobles. I just straight up like the game.
