Played a game at work on Monday with a coworker. It was the closest game I have ever played, not saying much as I'm new to the hobby, but still.

We played 3 rounds. The first round had me starting with a yellow investment card and 1 yellow 3. All my other cards were higher reds so I didn't want to start those.

So I lead with a yellow investment card. Brian leads with a blue investment card. I decide to start throwing down some mid sized whites. Then Brian throws down a yellow investment card. Uh oh. Needless to say he had a solid showing with yellow and managed to get me a -14. Luckily I was able to get 24 in red. 1st round: me = 22, Brian = 35.

Second round was very nice. Every time I drew I was getting cards I needed and could play rather quickly. Apparently Brian couldn't draw worth a darn. I end up with 46 points, Brian ends up with 8. Score: me = 68, Brian = 43.

Third round had Brian going aggressive. He laid down 3 blue investment cards, luckily greens were coming my way and I was able to lay down 2. He ends up getting 52 points in Blue + 20 bonus, while I get 42 points in green + 20 bonus. Final round tally has me with 71 and Brian with 86.

Game end score: Me = 139, Brian = 129

What made it even closer and more painful is that Brian mistimed the end, could have extended it but didn't, and was unable to play a card that would have put him ahead by 2! He was not happy!

Really enjoying this game. I need to get the Wife to the table, but after work and tending to our 22 month old, seems we are too tired to do anything but watch a little T.V. and then hit the sack.

LOL! Nothing like that. I'm a firefighter so we have some downtime between runs and stuff.
