TICKET TO RIDE : EUROPE
We started off with a little TTR E.
This one went to the General. It did come down to the last turn in the last round play.
I had to pull three route cards and get one route card already completed that was worth 7 to tie.
Didn't happen.
Didn't even come close (cost me 10 pts).

BAZAAR
A game with little glass beads and excercises in syllogistic logic.
By distracting the table with one hand (explaining and matching my collection of five beads to the other players) I used my other hand to shove excess beads up my nose (I didn't really have a cold). By lowering the numbers of excess beads I scored higher per set and won the game. The downside is I still think there is a yellow one inside.
(Mark, you may want to count -- think Homer and the crayon episode)

SETTLERS OF CATAN : SEAFARERS EXPANSION
This one went to the General as well.
I don't think anyone else was even within 3 pts.
I really liked the dispersal of resources / layout in the scenario we played.

TO MARK (M) and SEAN
You both mentioned TICHU and SHEAR PANIC.
If I may make a suggestion --- MARTIN.
MARTIN if you are reading this I am 99.9% sure you want to try SHEAR PANIC at least once. If you can add one more, you'll have a foursome for next session and can probably bet in 4 games (including a Tichu and Shear Panic).

TO THE GENERAL -- SETTLERS OF CATAN 2P CARD GAME
I gotta check that rule.


Til next week's week after.
Take care,
goo

P.S. DON'T FORGET LUDO II in Quebec in November.
Check the post in this section of FORUMS.

Sorry Zoz -- it've been a little spotty in my reading/responding to your posts.

I had other "life matters" to attend to yesterday and so couldn't join to play games.

I've played shear panic before and enjoyed it -- it probably plays best with 2 or 3 players tho.

As for Tichu, it's my favourite trick-taking game, I'm all for playing next time. (However, I will be out of town from Oct 16 to Oct 28)

Hi Martin,

No problem. It was the other Mark (Kuub's brother, not Marc the teacher).

Maybe plan to get 4 people for the November 7th, do a round of Shear and a few rounds of Tichu. You already have Mark M., Sean, yourself. I'm sure you can put together one more.

Just a thought from a Euroqueeg.

And enjoy the vacation!

Yes, that was a good distribution. In case you want to play it again it was scenario 2. I think that has to be the first time I have played where nobody got the largest army card.

Cheers
