Himalaya is a favorite in our group, we don't have many games that are good with many players. Since the release of the expansion, we're using the rules that remove much of the random factor from the game since you know in advance the cities where the new good will appear. With this new addition the game is better and interaction is always great. Four players would compete tonight, Nathalie, Martin, Mario and Pierre.

Nathalie had a strong start in round 1 when she collected many goods and already made a delivery to a monastery. In the next rounds, Pierre, Mario and Martin followed each other in the North and accumulated many ressources even if they were competing hard. Martin had to wait until round 5 to make his first delivery and during this time Nathalie was making many deliveries. In round 6 many nice deliveries request appeared and Nathalie denied Martin any way to get to them by putting some obstacle tile before him. Pierre made 2 big deliveries on turn 7 and seemed on his way to catch him Nathalie. At this time there were 3 players in the east since there was many ngoods available. Martin was affected by another obstacle when Pierre placed a winterstorm in his way so Martin was stuck in the east while Pierre could go west to accumulate goods and make another nice delivery. Martin had a hard time and he was working hard to place more stupa so he wouldn't be eliminated at first. He was able to place some stupa for a tie that would be useful in the first elimination round.

Even if Martin had a great comeback he was eliminated in round 1 since he had less yach herd that Nathalie. But Nathalie was then eliminated in the second scoring. So Pierre and Mario would compete for the win and Pierre won since he had the most yach herd.

It was a long time since our last game of Himalaya and tonight's game was fun. It wasn't long to remember the rules and play went very fast when it was time to plan our moves. The game was already good but the expansion make it even better.

Final scoring:
1st place: Pierre
2nd place: Mario
3rd place: Nathalie
4th place: Martin
