Disc Golf 01/05/2008

Jon high in the tree

This was the first time Jon has been played with us in a while now. First, he broke his hand but wouldn’t say how he broke it (my guess is a with a Wii). Then, he broke his foot. I think its been like five months since he has played.

Well, I put him to use and got him to climb a tree and rescue my disk.

John retrieves a disc

Of course, John (who is severely overdressed for this warm day) lost a disc in a tree also.

Game Day 01/03/2008

Game #1


It has been a while since I have played this game, which I like much better than Power Grid. My only problem was that I was going third. I decide on a spot. And then Gravitt immediately builds right next to me! Argh. In this game, you do not want to fight people in connecting to cities. Both Jon and Doug were left alone with huge empty areas surrounding them. So it was no surprise that they finished first and second. I took a risk and hoped that it would last one more turn. So I bought up enough supplies to guarantee me another round of powering my cities. But it didn’t and I lost the tie breaker for money.


This was an interesting game of Tichu. The opposing team was kept to a score of 95 for a number of hands! In the third and fourth hands, we scored 100 points Then we one/twoed them. And then, late in the game, they went back to 95 points!

For Doug’s first Tichu call, I had: 2233455668899Dr. Jon plays the Mahjong and makes an ace wish. I play a four and seriously consider calling Tichu. But each of my three sequential pairs must fly for it to be good. But then Doug played an Ace and called Tichu. So I Dragoned him and then hoped that the pairs were indeed good (which they were).
