(I am already congratulating myself for using a legislative pun)
A good friend of mine came up from Madison, WI and I forced her to play Lost Cities with me. I will say this: As crummy as the political action of our state legislature is this biennium, my friend had mentioned how she had gone to a party where they were playing a game called citadels. This is not a board game I would expect people to know about let alone organize a party around. There is hope for humanity.
Anyway, we got in two trial rounds of Lost Cities followed by two three-round games. I won the trial rounds 45 to -10 then 87 to 12; I was killin’ it.
However, she must have been sandbagging because I lost the first official game 38 to 48, 16 to 20 then 33 to 25 for a final score of 87-93.
After a trip to cub and some Havarti grilled cheese sandwiches, we pulled out the deck again and this time I actually used the strategy of drawing from the discard deck (side note, we realized we weren’t discarding correctly…) to win 59-41, 46-27, 39-16 total of 144-84. I’m a baller.
I’m already bored by this update and I bet you are too.
