Well it was a very long time in coming due to a plethora of difficulties throughout the winter of the new year, but at last IRL/F2F gaming starts again for me on 3/28 !

This extremely awesome invention that could be referred to as "card yahtzee" has a place on my 10x in 2015 list just like it did for 2014.

I so thought I had this won despite CR's significantly higher Poor Man meld because he left Doctor for last and I totally thought he wasn't going to get an Ace on the very last draw.

He did.


SCORES:

CR 104 WIN
Kel 87

One of the newest additions to this set of awesome little games is American History -- and this seems to be by far the hardest one because you are dealing with SUCH a narrower amount of year windows.

Matter of fact CR indeed loses the 2nd of both games I triumphed in by putting Abe Lincoln's election just 2 years too late. Again, the board was very hard in this 2nd game especially because the span of time was only 1798 to 1870 !! ( compare this to the science edition where you might have things from the 1960s and the approx age of the moon, which the card denotes as 4 billion B.C.!)


GAME 1 ( cards left )
Kel 0 ( WIN )
CR 1

GAME 2
Kel 0 ( WIN)
CR 2

And finally two more pals of yet another game from my 10x in 2015 list -- this IMHO very underrated title from Mr. Schacht.

This game seems to get a lot of hate on here, but I think it's compared to Coloretto far too much causing such a backlash. This is an entirely different animal ( as it were ) that IMHO works so much better with 2 people than the 2-p Coloretto variant does.

It does seem however from these plays no matter what else is happening ( esp in the 2nd game when I had more score piles ) that if you DO NOT get the Green 6 score pile and your op does, there may be no way to win. Shall explore this more in the succeeding plays this year.

We split a game each :


GAME 1

CR 46
Kel 48 WIN

GAME 2

CR 56 WIN
Kel 51
