(Charles, John, Dave, *Ric*)

RicB: "Oil drilling and selling game. I decided early that my strategy here was to simply make a slow walk up the board hitting wells on each side of (fairly) straight line and just take the oil that came my way. I had no interest in running up past my supply train where I'd have to pay others or the bank to deliver my well, and didn't have to do this once until my last turn. Instead I tried to concentrate on selling large blocks of oil at the middle price range. I was new to the game, not understanding the end-game scoring, but lucked out by having four wells still functioning on the board when most others only had one or two. I *felt* like I was winning from the middle of the game on, but the end game could have turned things on me abruptly if I hadn't been lucky enough to simply have the right wells tapped last. It was remarkable how many observers mentioned that the game had a bad rep. A longer game than most we play on Wednesdays, made fun mostly I think by the folks I was playing it with. Had it been played stone-faced calculatingly straight I think I might have less fun."
