The holidays provide plenty of opportunity for gaming time with friends and family. (Sadly, for all the gaming we did in the last week, I have no pictures. What's wrong with me?)
Last Friday our friend Theresa H. came over for a game. We had several options, and when I described Le Havre (designer Uwe Rosenberg, artists Klemens Franz and Uwe Rosenberg, publisher Lookout Games [website in German]) as a "deeper version of Agricola," Theresa chose that to play. We played the three-player shortened version, which has a few different buildings from the two-player that Kathy and I usually play. This time Kathy really got her coal-coke-shipping engine going and made all kinds of money, but I was hot on the building strategy and constructed enough high-value buildings to eke out a win by five points. Theresa made a good showing for her first game and had a good time.
