          Subject: [trivalleygamers] Invitation to Games - 1 June

          With Jeff joining Tim and Dave, we had four for games, so we did launch into La Città,  a game from a few years ago (like 9) about building city-states and trying to attract citizens from neighbouring city-states in order to have the largest population at the end of the game.  As always, each turn is limited in what one wants to build and what one can build now.  And while cities are being built, one also needs to generate enough food to support the citizens.  As the cities grow, the interaction between players nicely increases as citizens starting moving to adjacent cities that are perceived as better.

          Tim and Dave were the only two to build a third city, and did so early enough that they could support it.  This meant more citizens and better scores at games end.  One starts with 6 Citizens and gains 1 per city for each of the 6 turns so should have 18 citizens minimum by games end (assuming none are lost due to lack of food).  Obviously, have more attractive cities as well as the early start of a third city both support the generation of citizens needed for the victory:

              Dave:  26 Citizens  (29 Food) + 9 Cultural Bonus = 35

              Tim:  26 Citizens (26 Food) + 3 Bonus = 29

              Rich: 19 Citizens (22 Food) + 6 Bonus = 25

              Jeff: 20 Citizens (23 Food) + 3 Bonus = 26

          I did want to try this game as I have heard it plays in about 30 minutes per player and our 4 player game was right at that time.  We also welcomed R. who did stop by to meet the group.  Hopefully R. can attend future game nights also.  Would love to have you playing instead of watching next time.

          Tim:  175 / Dave:  170 / Rich:  137

          Moving on to this week, I will move last weeks alternative (Lokomotive Werks)  to my suggestion list.  And will look around for another alternate.  If anyone can attend and has a suggestion for another game they would like to play (or replay), let us know.  Who can make it and what would you like to play at
