There were only 5 of us this week, so we took the opportunity to get in a game of Puerto Rico.

There were four distinct strategies in play, only Oggie and Andy were playing similar, both going down the Loadsa money approach. Steve tried to flood the market with Corn, Tel was also playing the resource market, however he was after all resources. Kev went for the quarry strategy. About half way through the game everyone assumed Andy had won having managed to get both Markets and an Office making the trader very lucrative. However Oggie (to his left) had also got a large market and was able to pull in some serious money selling coffee. Kev was struggling with a common problem for the quarry route - a lack of cash, so was regularly unable to build despite having 3 populated quarries. Steves plans seemed to have come off the rails shortly after he moved into coffee, when Kev managed to build, nicking the Office that Steve was eyeing up (Andy was suspected of using his Jedi mind tricks to persuade Kev which to buy). Tel was quietly accumulating VPs by selling his goods to the ships. Despite cornering the market in quarries Kev didn't manage to get a single large building. These were split 2 each to Andy and Oggie with Steve claiming the fifth. When Andy signalled the end of the game by filling his city, everyone went through the process of totting up to see how much Andy had won by, but there was a surprise, only 2 points covered the first four, with Steve taking the win. Oggie and Andy tied for 2nd with Tel back in 4th. Kev was way back still working out what to build.

An extremely close finish which surprised everybody, not least Steve who claimed a highly unexpected victory from his position midway through the game. This game is truly becoming a classic, eveyone enjoyed it, everyone was involved, and still nobody has discovered a sure fire way of winning.

Final Scores
Steve 46, Andy 45, Oggie 45, Tel 44, Kev 26

Ratings / 10
Steve 8, Andy 8, Oggie 8, Tel 8, Kev 8
