Tuesday Night Session: Kendahl's return!

Kendahl, one of our dear departed founding members, made a return visit to our fair city this week, and Ted and I were able to meet him for a visit and quick game. As you might expect, I suggested we give a little game called Race for the Galaxy a try. We decided to play with the variant called playing with the published rules, which seemed to work surprisingly well.

Both Kendahl and Ted were experienced San Juan players, so within a few turns they were cranking along. I had Sparta, plus Galactic Imperium, so I was chasing techs to increase my military power. Ted had a good mix of production and consumption and was building a healthy economy. Kendahl, however, discovered the power of the x2 VP consumption card and he had a world which gave him 3 VP for every two goods. So, he proceeded to produce, consume, repeat, like crazy and run away with it. Great job, Kendahl! Great to see you again!

PS: Hannibal arrived

No hannibal, and no Race for the Galaxy for that matter...

How long is Race for the Galaxy (with the right rules variant of course)?

Race is about 20-30 minutes once everyone is comfortable.

My Hannibal arrived yesterday as well.
