Congratulations to Bronny on her first ever win, and to Meredith, for being nominated 'Fairest and Best'!
With a turn out of 21, this was (AFAIK) the largest tournament to date. Congratulations, Jason, on keeping these alive and growing!
From Bronny's account, the final game on table one is one that should go down in legend, with the scores sitting a 3-all for about an hour! Overall, it seems that she had some pretty convincing games - her first game was 11-5-5! (As one of her victims, I feel obliged to point out that it is never a good thing to end up below the dummy player in a three player game. And two of us did!)
At the other end, down on table 4, Meredith struggled valiantly against Paul, Jason and myself, as we took turns hitting each other over the head! It was only bad luck, and unfortunate sharing of hexes with the other players that stopped her. Especially after her stunning penultimate play of a Monopoly, which netted her 12(!) wheat, and stealing longest road from Jason.
Table 5, in round two, saw one of the most viscious baronings I have ever seen, with at total of 9 Knight cards being played (out of only 12 cards purchased!) I feel sorry for our visitor from Norway, who was doomed by bad rolls in that game.
We're all now looking forward to the next round, which will be the last for this year.
Well done, everyone! -R
