Pulled this out for my second 4 player game, the previous being at last weeks meetup. This game taught me that having tickets with a lot of the same color trains on it, is not a good thing. Especially in 4-player game. I was constantly short Orange, and wasn't picking up many Engines (wilds). Let me to having several unfinished tickets at the end.

Kelly took a solid win.

Heroes: Alex Al
Zombies: Lisa Lori

The hero's tried to "Escape in the Truck" in this installment. And from what i heard were fairly sucessfull at it.

Was mentioned afterward that 4 players probably should use some house rule variant that 3 of them play the heroes with the 4th shared or rotated, as its not nearly as fun with 2 players playing zombies.

The heroes made good with their get-away.

Modern Art came out as my second game. I did well on my sales, but wasn't purchasing any paintings due to some outrageous (IMHO) prices on the works themselves, some of which couldn't return that much on being sold.. I think there were 2 (maybe 3) of the rounds where I had nothing to sell for money.

Nate never saw a painting he didn't like, ending may rounds with several in front of us and prompting Joe to ask "you still have money???" This could have gone either way, but ended up on the negative side in the end for Nate. Kelly played a good game, buying and selling well.

Joe was stuck similiar to I not getting the paintings we could utilize. He managed to edge me out by 2

Richard took the win in his first time playing.

Don 379,000
Joe 381,000
Richard 456,000
Kelly 418,000
Nate 294,000

This time I taught Race to Alex who hadn't played before. He picked up the general concepts really well, and almost beat me on points.

Lisa however had a solid board going, picking up cards and points almost every turn, having a nicely full board, with some good production consume and trade league to boot.
