(Tina, Janet, David)
If you're wondering just why I'm writing this report when I wasn't even in on the game, it has to do with a pact I made with Tina some while ago: I get to write the game reports, and Tina lets me cook meals. We both agree this is quite fair.
In fact, I've never played this game, so I'll simply describe it as how it looked from the other table where I was playing Tikal:
Tina, who was sitting on the far side of the table, was playing with the "Boston" player shield card. David, who was on the near side, had a bunch of little tokens behind his shield. David was very much into the auction spirit - almost as much as Julian in a game of Wrott and Swindlers - and Tina sounded particularly unenthused about one or two of her auctions. However, she managed to end up ahead, not bad for a first play.

My rating: I give this one a rating of 5i, with the possibility of it becoming more real after I have played it.
