After a little break to savour the summer weather, Anthony, Nicolas and I start the Round 4 of our Elixir Tournament.
Right now, Nicolas is the best player … and me, the worst, but nothing is done yet.
The order of turn will be : Me, Nicolas then Anthony.
The spells are given and I got : Please Stand Up (A level 1), Useless (Another level 1 that make me … draw an extra spell when played). Exchange for my level 2, Turncard for my level 3 (both spell make me give my hand to another one) and for my level 4 : Tithe (Allowing me to take a card in the hand of someone who got a Land in play.)
Nicolas gets 1/2/2/3/3 spells and Anthony 1/1/2/3/4 spells like me.
I began, playing ‘Please Stand Up’ to Nicolas, but he counters with one of his level 1 spells : Boomerang, and I am the one who stand up.
Nicolas tries an Auction, but no one wants his egg and dewdrop.
Anthony plays his Nose Land and casts Ridiculus (Level 1 forcing me and Nicolas to use stupid nicknames when talking to each other.)
Nicolas closes the Nose Land.
I make a Marcket Day, get the Star Land and cast Turncard swapping my Monkey Money for 4 ingredients.
Secondhand Sell wih 2 ressources : I got a Beard and cast Useless, drawing ‘Singer’ (Level 1 spell forcing someone to sing a song.
Using a Transmutator end an Useless Item, Anthony casts Reccuperation (Level 2 allowing him to take 2 cards from the Discard). With the cards he casts : Needful Things (Level 3 allowing him to steal Lands) and take my Beard Land. Anthony got only his level 4 spell to cast !
I take back MY Beard Land !
I cast ‘Singer’ on Anthony, and strategically, Nicolas decide that the song isn’t good enough and Anthony gives 2 ressources to me.
Then Nicolas plays the Fear Land and cast ‘Wild Chaos’ (Level 3) : The ownership of Lands change at random : I get the Fear Land and Nicolas the Beard Land. Then, with ‘Vacation’ (Level 2) he closes all my Lands.
Vengeance ! I close the Beard Land too !
At end of Turn 10, I have 6 worth points of spells to cast with 8 cards, Nicolas 5 points with 5 cards and Anthony his Level 4 with 5 cards.
Nicolas draws Alambic : I dare to bet one of my useful ingredient to cast Exchange, an dit works ! Allowing me to give 4 cards to Anthony in exchange for … 2. Not a very nive effect for me, but a spell casted anyway.
Since my Lands are opened again, Nicolas steals my Fear Land.
If someone steals from me, I close ! No more Fear Land ! And I try to use an Effect : Brat ! Anthony and me give one ressource to Nicolas.
Nicolas opens his Fear Land and close my Star Land.
Anthony opens his Nose Land and close again the Fear Land.
I play an effect : SuperDjinn ! I can cast a spell with 2 free ingredients of my choice ! I cast Tithe, but Anthony stole one ingredient with a Magnet ! I try to remplace the missing ingredient with a Wand, but Nicolas Thwarts me with a Whistle : IT WAS MY LAST SPELL BUT I CANNOT CAST IT ! The victory slides between my fingers !
Nicolas uses an effect : Gallantery and him and me give a card to Anthony.
Anthony try an Auction, but since he’s very close to the victory, no one want to take his cards.
At the end of the Turn, Anthony and I have both our level 4 spell to cast. I got 6 cards and Anthony 15.
Nicolas have only 5 points to cast (one more than us) with 9 cards.
I choose to take a risk and play Market Day : I don’t get my missing ingredient but the other don’t get what they need too. After that, I try the Seven Leagues Boots, but Nicolas stole the effect … before Antony use a Whistle to counter the Boots.
Nicolas makes an Auction (2 face down cards for 2), Anthony takes and try to Auction a card … but we won’t take it.
Anthony plays an effect : Cycling : He can choose 3 ingredients in the discard pile … and after that … he casts his last spells and win.
So the scores are now :
Anthony : 2
Nicolas : 1
David : 1
Nicolas : 17
Anthony : 17
David : 13
Nicolas : 37
Anthony : 30
David : 25
It isn’t fair … why this game is so cruel against me … I should have won !!!! Life is SO unfair. But soon I will have my revenge … MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (At least I hope).
