Beth 10, Tony 9, Jonathan 9, Jim 7, Bruce 6

Beth and Jim began as Wastelanders, Bruce and Tony as Euphorians, and I was the lone Icarite. I was afraid this would seriously hamper me, but there were several hidden Icarite recruits, so it turned out Bruce was the one who suffered a lack of allies. Nobody wanted to help him explore the underground aquifer.

Brian's first play. He ended the game with 12 tiles, while Dan's victory was achieved with merely 7 of them.

Bruce & Jonathan 233, Beth & Tony 161

The game lasted three hands, and each team improved in score every hand. Beth and Tony were very close to achieving an Al Capone shutout in the final hand, but Bruce was able to discard his last card and end the hand sooner.

Some helpful hints from Matt to Brian. Dan says: "8 is a good score." Matt rebuts that 8 is definitely not an adequate score in a 3-player session. A dispute emerged over the definition of "a good score."

With Machi Koro: Harbor.
Bruce 7, Jonathan 6, Beth 5, Tony 5

I began by focusing solely on one-die establishments, but suddenly found myself with a business center and the opportunity to steal 2 Tuna Boats and buy a third. This pivot was dramatic, giving me a quick airport, but Bruce's Publisher-fueled engine was already in full swing. Tony's seemingly-unstoppable city was severely hobbled by my attack.

Dan and Matt have an irrational fear of gemixxing their Qwixx.

Matt won despite taking two misses. Brian had zero misses and Dan one.
