|9 of us played 7 games (exactly half the numbers of last week!)||
Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays... I certainly enjoyed taking the week off from work (using some vacation days as well as the Thanksgiving holiday). Last week I forgot to report on this dorky candy wrapper supplied by William. Ha! Thanks to all who bring food, games, and good cheer to RussCon!
|Blokus||4||RussW 3 JP 1 Clayton -1 Ben -3|
|Bluff||5||Clayton 4 RussW 2 Fina 0 JP -2 Ben -4|
|Kahuna||2||MarkY 1 MarkG -1|
|Tichu||2||( William MarkY ) 1 ( MarkG Ben ) -1|
|Tightrope||4||William 3 MarkG 1 MarkY -1 Ben -3|
|Acquire||5||JP 4 RussW 2 Whendy 0 Clayton -2 Fina -4|
|Alhambra||6||MarkY 5 RussW 3 William 1 JP -1 Whendy -3 Clayton -5|
Yay, I managed to place all my Blokus pieces, and even placed the singleton last!
Maybe one day we'll play Alhambra with a smaller number of players to see if it feels like it has more skill then - with 5 or 6 players it feels like you can't plan much and only get to make very local decisions in reaction to what has happened between your turns. But the game is nonetheless enjoyable, as proven by the fact that we keep having 6-player games of it since so many people want to play! Deep, rich irony.
