I misplaced the score sheet. Jonathan scored all of his points in the final round. The structures I made weren't unstable, nor were they tall. I was dealt good cards in the final round giving Matt and I good points.

Classic game played with the latest Fantasy Flight components and billed as two hours, but we played for four. Dan and Aaron's money management was better than Tony and mine. Dan and Aaron's better ships helped them make more money per trip or move faster allowing for more opportunities. I found five races, but all be the last had expensive goods and factories. Aaron and I were destitute an hour into the game, but he cashed in on Dust while I traded the same on close planets for little profit. We each had the same number of turns. I found the most relics, and it helped make my score less disappointing. I would prefer to play more often so I don't forget what I've learned.

“A third of Matt's points came from throwing away extra tiles. Mark and Rick hadn't played in a while and needed a refresher.”

“Mark was one turn away from an eight point play.” Matt was having a difficult few days of work and departed soon after playing.
