Losing your way

[Also posted at the Raanana Boardgames Group Site.]

We had eight at this week’s session. One foolhardy group of four – Abraham, Laurie, Ofer, and Yehuda – played the Martin Wallace game Automobile. I was in the other group, so all I can report is: (a) Abraham won; (b) it took a long time; (c) the players seemed to prefer (two of Martin’s other designs) Steam and Age of Industry; but (d) Laurie liked it.

Meantime – in the same time it took for one game of Automobile – Peleg, Rochelle, Susan and I played Ticket to Ride Marklin Edition, Pueblo and Dominion. Peleg was the runaway winner of the railway game. I won Pueblo, and Susan won Dominion by one point from Rochelle (who was playing this for the first time.)¬†Pueblo¬†was the least popular game of the three, though that doesn’t make it a bad game. Certainly, everyone seemed to have a good time, and we are building up useful playing experience of some games that will probably keep appearing on the games table for a wee while yet.
