With about 1/2 hour left we decided on a couple of rounds of Don. This was the game that Paul was so impressed with

at Essen he bought two copies. Players as gangsters are trying to buy control of the various areas of Chicago.

Each player starts with 12 "carrots" ( well they are orange and look like sliced carrots). The districts of

Chicagos are shown by the colour of the card, each card also has a number ( 0 - 9). The cards are auctioned off,

first 1 card then 2,3,1,2,3... etc. The highest bid wins the cards paying the relevant number of carrots split

between each player who shares a majority in the number matching the bid. Eg a bid of 12 would go to whoever had the

most 2, 15 to 5s, 18 to 8s etc. Players are not allowed to make a bid that ends in a number they own.

Despite playing this quite a lot no-one has determined a winning strategy yet. Everyone seems to win their fair

share of games. Yet the game certainly has strategy to it. We played without side auctions, which was the way we

learned it in Essen.

Tel won the first game by having enough carrots to ensure getting the last 5 cards. The second was moire

interesting as Paul quickly got 1-5 and Boog collecting 6-0, things tended to very expensive early. Boog eventually

won through with Paul grabbing 2nd place

Great filler for the end of the night ( or down the pub) playing a round in about 15 mins.

Final Scores
Tel 21, Boog 18, Paul 13
Tel 11, Boog 21, Paul 17
