Gail, Rhonda, Jennifer, Paul and I opted to take a trip ‘Through the Desert’, but on camels and NOT horses without names. Paul & Jennifer were new to the game, but caught on quickly.
Jennifer was the first to enclose a territory, while I was concentrating on connecting to oases. I generally try to insure that I have at least one longest caravan, and do my best to acquire two. This game was quite competitive, and I struggled to achieve one. I aimed at capturing the bonus for a second one, but Rhonda suddenly expanded her purple caravan, preventing me from accomplishing that task.
Rhonda scored big with lakes and two longest caravans, but only connected to three oases. Meanwhile, Paul had healthy scored across the board, but I managed to edge him for the victory on the strength of my six oases connections.
