With 3 players, Mario, Martin and Pierre we decided to play Through the desert. As in Ra , we really like the fact that this game is as ood with 3 or 4 players. There's not many good fillers with deep strategy as Ra and Through the desert.
Set up is becoming more and more important in our games.In the set up Pierre tried to place himself near the edges of the the board to prepare himself to close some zones but Mario and Martin placed their leaders between the edges and Pierre's leaders. There were many serious battles and in the end Martin and Pierre look ahead and were fighting to have the longest caravans in 2 colors but this prove fatal for them as Mario was able to score big with a small amount of camels. Pierre sacrificed too many camels to have the longest purple caravan but in doing this he had to sacrifice the blue caravans to Mario and wasn't able to connect some oasis that would also have score many points.
