3 of us for this week’s virtual meet up via Board Game Arena.
I wanted to play Race for the Galaxy (Rio Grande Games)
so we did.
I explained the rules as I remembered them (it being over 1,400 days since I last played it) and we gave it two goes.
The first game ended when Paul played his 12th card.
So Paul ‘I don’t know what I’m doing’ won that one.
The second game ended when the VP tokens ran out, something none of us were ready for.
A much closer game where Paul ‘I still don’t know what I’m doing’ won. At least I was in the top three both times and Phil was a consistent close second.
I really enjoyed playing this one again and am beginning to feel I’m getting the hang of the symbology. I do find this a very satisfying game to play. Hoping to play it again soon.
With a little time left over we tried Draftosaurus (Ankama)
A new game to everyone which we picked up pretty quickly.
2 games again.
The end of Game 1 looked like this:
Victory at least!
I think we all enjoyed this one even though the random die rolls can be a bit annoying at times. Looking forward to playing a IRL version of this game as I’m always a sucker for dinomeeples and this looks to be a very tactile game.
Player of the evening goes to Phil who managed to get second place in everything.
