Games Night 15th September

Tonight’s game was:
While waiting for PH, we kicked off with:
In the time it took SF to comprehend some of the rules a bit, PH had turned up. However, we saw the game through to its conclusion. AL was the first to drop out, closely followed by SF. MC was next leaving PH still standing tall with 3 dice left.
Onto McMulti…
MC spent all his money on 8 drilling rigs, 2 gas stations and 1 refinery
PH bought 12 drilling rigs, 1 gas station and 1 refinery
AL went for 13 drilling rigs, 1 gas station and 1 refinery
SF built 10 drilling rigs, 1 gas station and 1 refinery
McMulti in progress
This game saw a long time before any serious oil pumping happened and as such, the common and foreign markets were rapidly running out of the black stuff.
Quite a few doubles were rolled, sky-rocketing the price of gasoline and putting us through a depression, during which we saw a heavy investment in facilities. Then Prosperity was attained…and not a single double was rolled for the rest of the game.
AL struck oil first and MC struck last (costing about 50 million by that time). AL turned down his fifth potential well pump at $110 million.
MC took a chance and sold off two of his refineries early, declared the billion and hoped for a double to crop up. No such luck.
The final scores saw all four players reaching the (American) Billion:
AL: 1,778,000,000
MC: 1,789,000,000
PH: 1,814,000,000
SF: 1,349,000,000
The top 3 were shockingly close, but PH was the player of the night winning both games. Well done PH!
