Two player game of this with me and Cates. First time playing for both of us so a little rough to get going while we got the rules down.

I got stomped, I kept getting focused on all of the pretty projects and not enough on what I needed to get my engine going. Steve won this one at 98 to my 56.

I want to give this another shot with more players. At the end our Mars was pretty barren still with a lot of open space to build on.

Played with Bill M and John.

First learning game, I was able to be in the lead or tied on all the end game scoring plus I had the most buildings for the most points.

Bill, John, and I played this second. I had the pub master(?) that gave me a point every time I brewed a new beer in the pub and I tech'ed up to a break through that gave me 2 points for every new beer I brewed thereby giving me 3 extra points for every beer I brewed. I won by a large margin, but John was coming up with more actions.

Due to the extra large crowd, we split off into three groups. My group played TEG.

Alex - 31
Tony - 24
Dallan - 17 *I account this low score to the fact that Tony and I furiously fought over a planet, of which I lost. ...which is also what enabled Alex the victory.

Really basic style Tactical game...go figure...

After playing CC and ASL this game is a bit too simple...may be fast for the smaller scenarios, but not for the hardcore gamer.

Probably geared to the entry level tactical player.

Very fun game...
Simple to play...
Has actions to take and action cards to play on...for resource exchange..
MOST MONEY wins...

Felt like the competitive feel of SPARTACUS.

Dallan - 42
Brian, Steve, Tony - 41
Robert - 11
Russell - 2

Highlights:

- when Steve pointed out that Brian's "wool" very well could have been "backdoor" as he had an arrow pointing to the sheep's derriere.
- Tony's clever "friendship" with a clue of two friends shaking hands and an arrow pointing to a ship.
- Russell's "baby" clue that actually looked like a toboggan.
- Steve's "adjective" clue that no one got: drew an add + jackal + ivy

Brian - 33
Dallan - 12
Steve - 6
Robert - 4
Mark - 2
Russell - 0

Highlightsbeams and lowfoglights (even though racing cars aren't equipped with lights)

- Brian was the only one with both cars at the end.
- Steve would have had both cars at the end had his engine not exploded.
- Brian and Dallan came from pretty far behind to winning because we did not pit; and Steve and Robert did.
- Both of Russell's cars were eliminated (passed)
- Mark's second car almost survived had Brian not passed it crossing the finish line
