This month's attendance was a bit more subdued than last month's 4th of July weekend edition. However, we had lots of fun with 3 tables going throughout the middle of the day.

1165 Ashley / Jeff
635 Tim / Hsiu-Ping

This is a repeat of a matchup two week's ago, and Ashley remained on top. We won despite being defeated at a Grand Tichu call early in the match (by a 11 card straight).

Does this really count as a loss for Ashley?

176 Chance

160 Tim

This was "heavy game catchup" day for Chance and Tim--both playing Le Havre and Automobile. As usual, I mistimed my efforts and ended up with lots of materials and no turns to use them. I did manage to ship 7 steel at the end of the game, but that wasn't enough.

$4720 Jeff
$4550 Chance
$3920 Ashley
$3870 Larry
$3560 Tim

Chance and Tim were the newbies. In this game I started as Ford and built a parts factory. After building another couple of factories in the second round, I didn't have enough money to produce all the cars. This lead to one loan--the first one that I've ever seen anyone take in this game. I continued in the game producing and selling lots of cars and I think that was the difference. In this game we were pretty good at not overproducing, with only a few loss cubes handed out for it.

There were lots of civs in the first epoch, Hsiu-Ping managed to collect all five types of civs even after losing two tiles to Unrest. I was able to collect many monuments, collecting all different ones in the second epoch. Keeping the lead in the pharaohs throughout the game and the monuments won the game for me.

We accidentally played with 9 provinces, but I don't think it would have affected the outcome as Jean-Luc was the one to end the game by buying the last province.
