I managed to completely muck up my position and went bust when the 8 trains came out. Again. And I like the game so much I'll play it again soon.

This was the first time I played this game. I won it after getting 90% of what becanme the top priced company (FNM). I suspect that I should not have been able to get that number of shares and it was other players inexperience as well that allowed me to.

I won a 4 player game that was very tight. I can't remember what happened during the game.

I got 1 point. It's not my cup of tea. I won't be playing it again.

Played a three player game that I feel I should have won. I got an early lead and then was not agressive enough with my teleporting titan. Still a great game.

Played a 7 player game against very experienced players (all the sets of Outpost at Midcon had replacement cards as the originals had worn out!). I had a very good draw early and managed to make the data library strategy work for once. It ended up quite a large margin,

I played two games and came second both times. There is a lot of subtle skill in the game and I'm still learning.

I played this and liked it so much, I ordered a copy when I got back home. I need to remember that they are Opals not ore factories!

Played this for the first time with 3 players. I got blocked out of Houston and found myself needing 60 cars to complete my routes. Needless to say, I came last. I want to try this again.
