We followed this up with a game none of us had played before: Pompeji is another of Adlung’s numerous card games, and is about developing the town prior to the eruption of the volcano, which destroys the town and signals the end of the game. Cards are played to a 7x7 grid and you score for each card played by matching the colour and building shown on the card with similar colours and buildings in the same row, column or diagonal.

It ought to be a fairly simple pattern recognition game but it’s not. Not because of any intricasies of the rules, but rather because the colours and design of the cards are so awful. It is extremely difficult to tell certain buildings and colours apart, because of the background pattern on the card. The pattern was obviously intended to fit in with the game theme but is a nightmare in practical terms. Anyway, the game played o.k. and Mark K and I were neck-and-neck throughout, such that the whole game eventually boiled down to whoever drew the volcano card would win. Mark beat me in the shoot-out.

Result: Mark K 230, Garry 220, Mark G 168

Ratings: Mark K 5, Garry 5, Mark G 6
