McCain wasn't dirty enough. Some hard battles in this one.

Always best to know the rules before playing with your kids. It was a perfect opportunity for a learning game. Start them early I always say.

I didn't hear who won. Any one have the details?

A first play for everyone but Mark. Again Mark was very good at teaching a game. Perhaps too good. Everyone had positive things to say about this one. I think it will make it back to the table fairly soon.

We finally got this one to the table. It was the first face to face play for everyone. I had only played with the Online AI previously. Everyone was familiar with San Juan so it made the learning curve a little easier. The icons were mastered rather quickly.
