(Played at ICON)

Web of Power was next. During the rules it was explained that a certain piece could be placed in the first part of game but it wouldn't score until the second part. Right then and there I had my strategy. Though it's taken me a while, I've figured out that whenever a game designer puts in such a mechanic, he expects new players to ignore the 'non-scoring' placements, thus allowing an experienced player to gleefully concentrate on it and go on to a crushing victory. This makes the experienced player feel good because they crushed, while it makes the newbies want to play again because they feel they didn't 'get the strategy' until the game was over. Upshot: I came in second, dancing past most of the previous leaders from the first part of the game.
