It was an overcast dreary day. Perfect for a game day inside! It started snowing around when we got started. I hope everyone made it home safely.

This session capped off a busy holiday week for us. We had the gift exchange last Saturday, followed by the regular Tuesday session, and the New Year's eve party on Wednesday. You'd have thought that everyone would be gamed out, but we had a pretty big showing.

Tim showed up first and I taught him this game which have flown under the radar in our group. I rather like it as a game which finishes in around an hour (less if you are experienced). I thought I had the lead and ended the game, but I guess I wasn't paying attention because he had more points when we counted the points.

This was the featured game for me. Jay had suggested playing, which prompted Tim to make the trek from the Springs. Finally, I was able to do the steel strategy comfortably. Then we discovered that somewhere along the line we have forgotten to turn over a round card. This means that we had an extra two turns.

After having a not inspirational first game, I played this twice recently and found out I quite like this game. It seems to move along quite nicely with four players. I think people misunderstood the Scribes and used them much too early (on just one card).

I suggested a variant where everyone uses a hermit card on their left neighbor at the start of the game to jump start everyone. Brian thought that this was disadvantageous to the neutral players.

With the help of the first aid kit, Mark died quickly. Then all of a sudden Brian was faced with everyone attacking him. Agnes stuck to her right hand pal (the Unknown), and Allie just wanted the game to end.

Mark had the +2 on red. This was a big advantage and he used it to great effect.

It took a while for this game to get started because I haven't played this game for about 5 years. The game featured a big bone shortage, which was pretty normal for the game. Hsiu-Ping took the first to four continents award. I had the exploration award and two of the victory points from exploring.
