I protect the sheep in our society from the wolves.

Terri had Terraforming Mars all set up last night so I had no choice but to play her in in one of her favorite games. We passed out the Corporation Cards and she picked The Miner's Guild while I took the Ecoline Corporation. This game always starts a little slow but once it gets going the time just zooms by and before you know it, 2 hours plus has passed by.

I hit the first Milestone and she snatched the next two. She also took 2 out of 3 Awards although we battled back and forth for the Banker and Miner awards.

Here is how the final planet looked once we got it Terraformed:



She got a ton of cards in play and I thought she would probably win this one. Here is her final board:



Thanks to my Jovian Moon onslaught where 1 of my cards was worth 8 points thanks to all the Jovian Moons that I had in play, I was able to pull out a 102-92 win. Here was my Ecoline Board at the end of the game:



To tell you what a true gamer she is, even after a 2 1/2 hour game she said, "if it wasn't 3am, we would run it back and I would kick your butt"shake

It happens from time to time, nothing too rare, I'd say.

When I paid the 20 MC to fund the Banker Award, I was 16 ahead of her in total MC production and thought that would be a sure 5 points for me. Needless to say, she flew by me in MC production. She had the card that gives you 1 MC increase for every 2 Building Tags in play and then she played the card that allows you to copy 1 of your production cards in play and she copied that one. I think those 2 cards increased her MC production by 12 total.

Yes she had the Blue card that decreases cost -2 for every card. She also ended the game by placing the last ocean as she thought she was ahead at that time.

Yeah, with the corporate cards in play I have found the banker award to be highly unpredictable. The other awards are much more reliable.

Still, funding it then losing it 32-12 is impressive, if the pictures are accurate.

I was a bit confused here, until I understood that you meant the tags.

The Jovian tag is a picture of the planet Jupiter. As they say in the movies, "That's no moon!"
