And what did we discover ?
That Andy is very good at picking up new games. Wonder how he’ll get on playing Power Grid against Scott...
That, for once, Jon was unable to use his ninja like powers of persuasion to concoct a win.
That Tonio likes to sulk when things don’t go to plan...
(but soon perks up when he’s doing well
That James, despite proclaiming that he hadn’t read any of the cards before, seemed to have a good grasp on what was going on.
That for some reason everyone decided to scrap it out in the same Mars region except for James, a bad strategy in El Grande and indeed a bad one here.
That blowing up spaceships in this game didn’t feel quite as much fun as it felt like it should.
That twice Tonio selected a character that resulted in him being unable to actually do anything once his turn came around... (did I already mention the sulking?)
That Jon was all excited about his bonus card rewards of 2 and 4 points until he saw James’s bonus cards of 6 and 8 points
That everyone decided soon afterwards that the bonus cards sucked (except for James).
