I do not run and hide... I strategically maneuver.
Darin, Aaron and Mike played a quick 3 player game of San Juan before the other gamers arrived for the evening. Darin and Aaron had played a few games before, and Mike was new to SJ (but had played PR several times). Mike started off with an early Prefecture, and used it to his advantage by taking councillor a few times early. Darin built an Aqueduct, and Aaron got frozen out of the building in the first round.

The second round of turns saw Mike build Library, and Darin and Aaron began struggling to keep up. Mike kept choosing Councillor to take advantage of the "draw 8, keep 2" situation. Darin built Tobacco Storage and later a Market Hall, and tried to get into a "produce and sell" strategy. After getting a Silver Smelter on the board, Aaron countered with a Library of his own and a Tower.

Later in the game, Mike was able to break it open with a Guild Hall, a City Hall, and a Palace! Aaron had a City Hall of his own along with a Chapel, and Darin had his own palace, but they were no match for Mike's three 6 buildings.

Final score:
Mike 45, Aaron 33, Darin 26.
