This was my first time playing this game. With the exception of one nice hand with 19 points, I trailed the veteran players throughout the whole game. Only once did I trade in my hand for a completely new one, and was criticized for giving up a couple good cards. In future games, I know the trick is to know where to build, based on the cards I'm currently holding.

Bill - 1st
Dave M. - 2nd
Bry - 3rd
Liz - 4th

Bry taught three rookies how to drink at the Inn. I own a copy of this game (a Craigs List pick up), but had never played. I can see merit in additional plays and learning which cards to keep or to discard. The gambling effort was certainly not working for me... at all!

Bry - 1st with 7 total gems
Bill - had 6 total gems at games end
Dave M. - had 4 of 5 different gems at games end, only lacking pink

I taught Bry and Dave, who both enjoyed the game. They both chose the same tactic... steal whatever gem Bill has in his boat. I was also the 1st to lose a boat over the falls. I ran one boat, trying to get 4 purple gems for the win, but Bry stole my 4th one, and Dave picked up the last one, both landing them on the next turn. I changed my focus to speeding up the river, especially when Bry got to 6 gems. Somehow I slowly managed to land 6 gems by games end.
