Am I a man or am I a muppet? If I'm a muppet then I'm a very manly muppet!
Ra is a splendid little bidding game which gets better and better each time I play it. (Note: your mileage may vary - my good friend Greg Schloesser says it's had the opposite effect on him.)
Evidently Jeff had two good rounds followed by a real stinker of a third epoch (he was unable to win any bids before a sea of Ra tiles swamped the board). The result - Winn destroyed them, with Shintaro using a pile of monuments to pull into second place after Jeff took the lowest suns penalty.
Thorbjörn Engdahl has made a tremendous Ra tile mat IN COLOR with rules and places for the tiles. The original design is by Philip Dutre but Thorbjörn made it look good. It should make teaching Ra a WHOLE lot easier.
