HASE & IGEL
Having 6, we had a limited selection, but everyone seemed interested
in Hase & Igel. I rapidly realized that some of the strategies are
very different with 6 than they are even with 5. Those lettuce spaces
are occupied that much more. After an early split of the group into
the hares and the hedgehogs, Brian pulled out the win by at least a
One of the closest games I've seen of this. The first couple rounds
were reasonably tight, though some players were well into the 30's
while the leaders were in the teens. After a third round, noone had
passed 66. On the fourth round, two players passed 66 and Max won
with 48 points, with the 2nd, 3rd and 4th place players all having
scores in the 60's.
Quite quick with six players, and subject to perhaps some
unintentional kingmaking. In the end, I won by passing 0, closely
followed by Brian and Richard.
We split into two groups of three, and I thought Brian would enjoy
this game, so he, Max and I played, while Richard, Ronald, and Luke
played Cape Horn. Elefantenparade is a game that looks really simple,
but at least for me, has taken some getting used to the subtleties.
Brian and Max played well, but experience won out and I won, having
taken an almost unbeatable lead at the halfway point. Fortunately, it
plays quick. We were tempted to play again, but decided to call it a

be on again on the 19th.

Elefantenparade? Also, did Brian actually enjoy the
