Great little dice game, with strategy, tactics, and the potential for crooked sheriffs.

The strategy I used to win my first game of this which was to monopolize the gold nuggets didn't quite work out this time because the couple of property claim cards I got were only 1 pointers, so didn't bolster me any despite my large pile of gold.

We also had a couple of corrupt lawmen who did very well taking bribes in return for breaking ties favorably.

Played with the latest version of rules. Does make for a better game. However, this game slowed down for a bit. The thunderstone ended up being the next to last card in the dungeon deck, and the dungeon hall bogged down when we got several hard to kill monsters that clogged things up for a bit until somebody could finally get the necessary cards to kill them. And it wasn't me this time. Nobody wanted to lose on purpose just to get the monsters out of there, but the clogged dungeon seemed to put a damper on the game a bit.

I like Tichu a lot, but don't play very often. My lack of experience makes me hesitate getting into a game with all the experienced players we have in this group. But Matt, Jared, and Luke talked me into playing. I was Jared's partner and, fortunately, I played well enough to help us win, or at least not help us lose.

Enjoyed this one a lot. I should play more often.

Luke and I versus Scott (Luke's Friend) and Matt.

We got trashed, getting set left and right (including me helping set my partner's nil - though looking back on it I'm pretty sure I still can't cover him completely if I play it the other way - if I led Ace-King-Queen of spades all in a row then nothing would've been left to cover his 4th spade. I would've had to first play seemingly wrong by leading a low spade and only then dropping trip high ends.) Even so, we were not far off in pulling off a Double Nil despite my King of Spades; we would have been in the lead (though heavily bagged) going into the final hand if we got it, but alas, not quite.

(At first I just thought it was the longest game of Settlers ever, but apparently it was 2 games.)
