Kathy, Andrew and Tim played “Candamir: The First Settlers” with one other player and we ran out of time before somebody got to 10 victory points. So we declared the person in the lead the winner when time ran out. Tim was in the lead with 6, followed by Kathy and Andrew with 5 and then our other player with 4 points. We had fun playing and Kathy really liked the way the cards determined what hazards or rewards there were when moving. “Candamir: The First Settlers” was one of the games that we purchased this year.
At noon Kathy and Andrew played in the “Ticket to Ride: 1910” qualifier but neither one of them finished 1st so they did not advance to the next round. Tim had a ticket to the “TtR:1910” qualifier but opted to play in the “Alhambra” final instead. It was a close game Tom Cleaver (who played in another qualifier at 10am) won with 88 points, Jess got 2nd and Tim and Matt tied for 3rd. To resolve the tie they drew and the high card would get 3rd. The 1st cards each drew were “8’s”. On the 2nd draw Matt got a “3” and Tim drew a “9” for 3rd a 3rd place finish. What did Tim win? A certificate and bragging rights.
The “Alhambra” final and Kathy & Andrew’s “TtR:1910” both finished a little after 1am so we headed off to the Exhibit Hall for a little while. It was HUGE and we only got maybe 1/3 of the way into it when Tim had to head for his next event the “On the Underground”.
