Gems in the ruins

I know I said I wasn't going to this Friday night group anymore I'd had enough. But there I was back once more, a glutton for punishment.

Jamie, Lucas and myself played a game of Splendor using the official playmat, the first game I've played with it. It was also the first time Jamie and Lucas had played the game. So that's why I'm putting my worst score at the game todate of two points to “beginners luck”. Jamie romped to an easy victory of fifteen points, while Lucas narrowly beat me with a score of three.

No one remembers second place! Which is where I finished in the three games of King of Tokyo that we played. In one of the games I needed one victory point to win. Jamie was in the middle clicking up points. I only needed to reach seventeen points thanks to a card I had bought, whilst Jamie still needed to reach twenty. Could I roll that blooming point? Not a chance. The dice were definitely against me. Jamie took a points win, that could have also been a knockout victory too. But it shouldn't have been if the dice had been kinder.

Ok this was really my last time at this group. From next week a small splinter group of us will be meeting at The Angel pub from between 5pm and 9:00-9:30 (although it can go on longer). I'll put more details up about this in the next day or so.

  1. I quite liked that King of Tokyo game. It was great to read of Jamie’s success… but who got second place? Well I suppose that doesn’t matter, but could you point it out to me again please as I must have missed who got second place the first read through.

    Well done Jamie at Splendor in denying a win to Darren (was it last place you came in again Darren?). Keep up the good, no awesome, work Jamie!

    1. Hahaha I’m soooo glad you liked the results Jonathan. I’m sure you will remind me tomorrow during pandemic legacy of them too ^___^
