first auction and built first, I would have built exactly where you did!
Instead, I used the engineer to put a ring around those cities and then
drove that monopoly for all I could. It definitely helped that Mark got
shafted on production and many cubes went my way -- but with four cities
(five including a later expansion) under my protection, I likely would
have had cubes falling my way no matter what.
I'd be up for this again next week or one of the other boards, although
we have to get Whisky Race back to the table soon while I still remember
Gil and Melissa also fit in a game of Battle Line. I taught them quickly
before eating, and the game went to the final card, at which point
Melissa grabbed the third of three in a row, then flaunted all the cards
Gil was hoping for.
I'll send directions soon for anyone ready to travel to scenic Blackstone.
