Saturday 12th August; 7 Wonders and Sherlock Holmes the card game.   Leave a comment

Mike, Alex, Darryl, Bruce and Phil.

First a game of standard 7 wonders. Bruce came first, then Mike, Alex, Phil and DARRYL. Phil got trounced in the military field and though he tried to gather some science they never came his way. Bruce had a very nice all round strategy so was victorious on his first game.

Next cities were added. This time Phil decided he was fed up getting trounced militarily. However everyone else gave up the arms race and hid behind diplomacy thus limiting his vp slightly in the. Last round, just enough to hold him back. Alex went all out on science and gave a masterclass on how it should be done. The victor was therefore Alex thanks to 55 points from science, followed by Phil with an all round but no science strategy, then Mike, Bruce and Darryl. Well done Alex for showing everyone how science can work for a victory.

Finally we played two rounds of Sherlock Holmes the card game in which Phil was victorious ending with a minus score whilst some players were closer to 100.
