I didn’t take many pictures from this point for the April 15th, 2017 game day. We had games of Mottainai, Alchemists, Ticket to Ride, Tsuro of the Seas, and finally Jump Drive.
Injae and I moved to Mottainai after 3 Person Chess, and Justin, Jeremy, and Daniel started playing Alchemists. Injae played Mottainai for the first time and got the concepts down pretty well although it is a steep learning curve knowing the cards and what is worth building. We ended the game with me getting 20 points to his 12. I had good sales in metal, as well as one item built, and backorders in hand.
Jeremy bought Alchemists earlier in the same day as the event, but he had read the rules the day before and was able to teach the game to Justin and Daniel while all played for the first time. The game looked interesting. I liked the private screens with information, and it looked like an app was involved with final scoring. The game appeared to be about learning to be an alchemist, making proofs, and the final result came to making correct answers on a test. Jeremy took a narrow win with 45 points to Daniel’s 44.
Ticket to Ride Europe was my final game of the day with Justyna, Bridget, and Injae. The game went well. There was some confusion with Justyna somehow getting 2 long routes, but she finished them anyway and ended up with 3rd place, so that was worth recording. Injae came in first with a commanding 129 points followed by me with 109. Justyna was ahead of me but used more of the stations and didn’t get those points.
Jenna, Justyna, Bridget, and Anthony played Tsuro of the Seas. I left at that point so didn’t really see much of the game. I know that everyone was eaten by the dragon; however, leaving Anthony to win as the final survivor and Jenna the last one eaten.
The last game of the night was Jump Drive. It was a quick game between Daniel, Justin, and Jeremy. I don’t have the exact scores, but Justin won with just over 50 points.
