A 5 player game this time, with the following teams:
Me : The Mentak Coalition – Yellow
Katelyn : The Ghosts of Creuss – Blue
Scott : The Barony of Letnev – Red
Jason : The Naalu Collective – Green
Ian : The Clan of Saar – Black
We decided to do a board layout with players placing tiles, but then randomise who had which homeworld location AFTER the board was built. We hope that this would force people to ‘spread the love’ rather than create themselves a Utopian paradise of a pie slice if they had a decent hand of systems.
Did it work out? Well for me it did; I dropped some quite powerful planets in one of the ‘easy slices’. Katelyn didn’t fare very well at all, and others were fairly average.
On with the game…
Another awesome game; we actually finished at 130am this time! It was really close up to the end.
Katelyn had a tough time of it as her resource supply never really took off. Scott and Ian played well and scored consistently but in the end Jason played it extremely well, able to deal with a number of threats and keep his nerve to the end.
