The next Settlers of Catan tournament in Perth is at Tactics in London Court @ 10am on Sunday the 20th of Feburary.
Cost is $5
The Game is Basic Settlers of Catan, but with the tournament rules that the Robber Baron is active from the start, and you only have 1 1/2 hours to finish the game, first to 10 points wins.
Prizes depend on how many people turn up. But are always gift vouchers for tactics, with first usually between $30 and $55. (cribbed shamelessly from Mark's posting for October 2004 - you can't keep a good cut'n'paste down!)
First up - congratulations to Helen for being awarded fairest & best. That first game was murder on you!
Stephen romped home, followed by Mark and Jocelyn.
Stephen's first game (10-4-4-4) must go down as one of the most convincing wins ever! Well done - and do see a doctor about those daggers in your back!
Down on the lower tables, there was an evil grind in the first game with Rob, Helen, Jocelyn and Emma fighting a long, slow battle. Until Joc suddenly won, in the midst of a final frenzy of action by all players. This was the game that saw Helen spend most of her time discarding cards after rolling a 7 on her turn, then building back up to 8 in the following round, and then rolling another 7. Despite this she managed to fight her way up to 5 points at the end of the game.
And welcome back to Tracy and Emma after a long absence.
As always, thanks to Tactics for hosting the tournament each month, and to Jason for organising it all.
