After the mammoth Die Macher game, we decided to follow it up with Nige's favourite game: Tigris & Euphrat. I've not played this for about 3 years and was pretty rusty, taking a while to recall how important the conflicts are. It's not that difficult a game, but it does require concentration on what you are doing and the threats posed by the other players. Mark and Nige were scrapping it out on one side of the board while Ben and I were peacefully co-existing on the other side, at least initially. Once the monuments started turning up, the conflicts became more fierce. Nige ended the game taking the last few tiles, guessing that he had got the most points. And so it proved to be, with Ben just falling one cube short of Nige's score. All in all, an excellent day's gaming with good company, delicious food, and a couple of worthwhile games. And Nige won one, at last!
