Three of us convened at Dave's house for an evening of games. Well, at first we had four: Helen suggested a warm-up at the beginning for a game of TransAmerica. Kathi, Dave's wife, was willing to join us, so we started with TransAmerica for four.

In the first round the tracks grew out from the various points. Dave had three cities in the Northeast/Midwest (Boston, Chicago, Saint Louis), and then two in the southwest (Phoenix, San Diego). He was able to connect his first three, but as it turned out no one else had much to do with the southwest, so he was on his own. Helen built out from Helena, going to Seattle, and then coming down to join the rest of us. She was able to take advantage the rest of our track, though, and finish the round. Dave was still five points away, and the others three steps each.

In the second round Helen again took advantage of the Northwest, with cities Helena, Salt Lake City, and Medford. come Helen always did so well when she has Helena? I sense foul play. Anyways, when she ended the round, Dave and Kathi were both one step away from finishing, but Sterling was five steps, and he took the, uh, lead.

We moved the boundary two spots beyond Sterling's marker, and started round three. Dave connected Saint Louis and Duluth, and then started moving west. But this connection gave Kathi an easy hook into Chicago, and she was able to ride this through to end the round. Everyone else was three (Sterling) or four (Dave, Helen) away. Dave's four pushed him past the boundary, ending the game. The scoring in this game starts from 13 and works downward, so final scores were Helen 9, Kathi 9, Sterling 4, Dave 3.
