We had [profile] alaimacerc round last night to play Attika last night, the first outing for that game at our table in several years. We caught up with the rules without too much trouble and got down to playing tiles and giving out about the shortage of water in good time.

The initial (over-)analysis didn't last too long and we got into the swing of things without too much trouble. Sam and Alai both started off close to a shrine and built out from there. I ended up in between to take advantage of resources on the map and lost the momentum for the shrine connecting race early only to recoup somewhat as I got my capital, Athens, down as a second settlement before either Sparta or Corinth made an appearance.

The placing of extra land was my undoing however, as I mistimed the new expansions land so that they benefitted the other players more than myself and I was left short of cards to block a double run for the shrine behind Athens. I managed to block Alai twice, but Sam's snakey-sneaky buildings from Sparta just managed to connect and won her the game.

Good fun game, though, and I'd like to play it again before my memory fades.
