After Attika we left it up to Sabrina to choose our next game. She reached into Rich's bag and pulled out Tsuro.

We all started on different sides of the board. Jim began with a quick turn, heading for a corner of the board. The rest of us continued forward, and gradually converged in the middle of the board. Sabrina continued forward, and Rich turned back, and both approached that same corner where Jim was lurking. In fact, at one point Sabrina had the opportunity to play a tile that would place her on the same place as Jim, allowing him to place a tile that could move her off the board. She of course, decided against that, and told us that she saw that possibility, and knew that Jim would choose to do just that. Jim protested, "I wouldn't do that. It's not my style."

Once we all stopped laughing, Sabrina instead turned back. Jim played a tile that took him to the opposite corner, near where Dave was. He turned about, heading toward the other side. Rich, meanwhile, turned away from where he was, and ended up close to the edge of the board, between Dave and Jim.

Finally we came to the decision point of the game. The draw stack was empty, and we were all running out of tiles. Sabrina was near the edge of the board directly across from where she was sitting. She could save herself, if she had a tile that would turn her 180°, but all she had was the tic-tac-toe looking tile, that ran her off the board. Meanwhile, Dave, Rich and Jim all surrounded the same empty space. It was Dave's turn, though, and he had just the tile to let him turn left, which put him onto a blank space, surviving one more turn, but caused Rich and Jim to run into each other. That forced them to end up in each other's starting spot, off the board. Here's a nice before-and-after shot:



As the sole survivor, Dave took the win.

This is a really quick filler sort of game, which I've heard described as "Place a tile, and don't die." Try to stay out of everyone else's way, and try to leave yourself a safe option. But it's easier said than done.
