We had the usual suspects round on Sunday night for a couple of games. We reversed the usual habit and started with TransAmerica which went as expected with final scores [profile] alaimacerc 10, [personal profile] irishkate 8, Myles 6 and [personal profile] sammywol 4. I seemed to have three hands of 4 good to great towns and one absolute bastard of a town that proved my downfall in each case.

After that we hummed and hawed a bit and finally decided to play Race for the Galaxy as it wasn't Dominion. The starting line up there was Alai with Earth's Lost Colony, IK with Ancient Race, Sam with the Separatist Colony and me with the Imperium Warlord (who was new to me).

Not through any great plan, but having a couple of +1 Military cards in my hand I headed for a Military strategy. This was fortunate as I fluked (and worked towards to be fair) into a couple of more Military points and then managed to get the Alien Monolith down with the Space Mercenaries paying their way.

We all managed to get the 12 (or 13 cards) down I think and the final scores were Myles 51 (including 10 from Alien Tech Institute), Sam 37 (including 17 from Terraforming Guild and New Galactic Order), IK 33 (18 from Imperium Seat and the other Imperium 6-pointer) and Alai on 33 (14 from Trade League and New Economy). Third place tie-break went to Irishkate on cards and goods in hand. High scoring game, especially for me!
