We were able to convince James Ernest to come to games night, and I got to play Seasons with him. We didn’t do very well, and he had the good point that it was hard to pick up since there was no real world basis to start the understanding of the game from. I then played a round of Tzolk’in with Adam, Candice, and Nick. Adam was able to get the 40 point monument in the first quarter of the game, but he sacrificed a lot of his momentum to get it. I got a lot of techs very quickly and then used that to build a ton of buildings. It worked out really well with the building upgrades and resource upgrades. I was able to win by one point over Adam in the end, 94 to 93. James broke out several of his games and played them with the others, and I think that he enjoyed coming by.

I’m glad you got to spend the evening with James. Hope it helped.
