Brendan 14, Gili 13+, Jon 13-, Nadine 11+, Ofek 11-, Adam 10

Adam called as we were setting up, so I played his moves for the first two rounds until he arrived. This was Ofek's first attempt to play the game, but it was long and too hard for her (she is 8 years old?), and she drifted away towards the end of the game, and Gili had to play her final moves for her.

The game was really long and slow even for our standards. The primary problem was six players, which meant more downtime and more complex calculations. Add to that Nadine's very methodical math analysis, and Gili having to explain the options each round to Ofek, and we were all a little bored by the end of it. Even though the game "situation" itself was pretty interesting and would have been exciting had it gone faster.

We played on the American map without the East Coast. Brendan took the entire west coast and essentially played solo the entire game. Despite the higher connections, he managed a win.

We were all fighting around the three central and southeast areas, but even with the crowding, none of us paid the same high connection fees that Brendan did. His price savings came from always building in the first positions in any city, while we had to build into second and third positions.
