I was able to secure Australia in turn one and keep it the whole game. I captured all of Africa after I warned Brian I would bring the house of pain if he attacked me. That gave me an additional 2 troops per turn. I was going for my 3rd goal and I had 12 v. 7 and it failed miserably allowing Roland to waltz to victory by controlling Europe. My first Sinko.
We played the new game in the mystery rummy series just received on Monday. The graphics are beautiful only extremely non-functional. We played 4 hands to get to 100 pts. Really a good game although we played a rule wrong you can move the car up OR down, we were just moving it up.
Roland, Brian, and I stayed late to finish this game.
I was not killing anything then I got three back to back to back and was way in the lead. Roland ruthlessly back stabbed me killing me just short of victory. I even tried to swipe the monster with my final breath in a counter strike and Roland said, "Not so fast" No Action for me.
Brian 17 Roland 14 Cates DNF 20 pts. in an honorable death.
[Saturday Grant's place] We played this new acquisition from Grant. It's a sort of worker placement where you're manipulating your workers on a 3 by 3 grid to go execute various engine building actions.
Walter 62 Grant 59 Stewart 57 Cates 38
It's really a non-game because the top three were cheating on one of the actions for several rounds
