We ended the night with a couple of quick games of Transamerica.
Paul, never one to shy away from new tactics, discovered that in the first round of the first game his starting position was isolated from everyone else, so decided to pass each turn until the communal track of everyone else passed close to his starting position. Of course the rest of us suspected as much when he started passing so ensured we didn't get too close until absolutely neccassary. Not long after Paul got into the main line, Oggie connected his 5 stations. Paul was surpringly only 7 moves away so we went into a second round. This time Paul decided that he should get involved in some building, not that it did him any good as again Oggie was the first to complete his task and again Paul was 7 moves away. Make of that what you will !!!.
Oggie 13, Andy 7, Tel 3, Paul -1
After finishing the first game so quickly we played a second. This time the game was much closer taking 3 rounds to end the game and that was only because we moved the finishing line. Tel managed to claim victory in the last round despite spending most of the round building his own little line well away from everyone else. However when Oggie did connect to Tels line he immediately placed 2 tracks to finish the game, just as Andy had been warning Oggie.
Tel 8, Andy 7, Oggie 6, Paul 2.
