While waiting for our game of Clippers to complete, Gina Tillis introduced
Michael Byrne to Lost Cities. I clarified a few of the rules and helped
them get started, but Gina had played previously so she was able to guide
the game along quite nicely.
After a practice round to get Michael used to the mechanics, the two played
three hands. Gina tanked in the first round, taking several chances on
expeditions that never reached their goal. Mike managed a few points and
held a 44 point advantage. However, rounds 2 and 3 were owned by Gina. She
successfully closed the gap on Michael and managed a narrow victory.
Gina: -24 + 56 + 24 = 56
Michael: 20 + 21 + 8 = 49
