We finished up with a game of San Juan, which we all know and enjoy a lot. Unfortunately, while this is normally a game I do really well at, this session cemented Nige’s Hall of Fame victory. I was able to build an early library and was working towards getting production buildings and a Guild Hall but I never saw a Guild Hall all game and, in fact, didn’t see any six point buildings until right at the end. I did build a Palace but my other buildings weren’t valuable enough to get me enough of a bonus. Nige, on the other hand, built an early Triumphal Arch and took the full bonus by being able to build all three monuments. Although this meant he had to forego some building opportunities, he was still able to amass more than enough points to grab the final win of 2007. Well played!
