Weekend Gaming: Xidit and Brass

IMG_20141213_224337_673-1024We kicked off games on Saturday with Lords of Xidit.  I was doing alright, but was behind on mage towers throughout.  I knew I had to catch up, but there weren’t a whole lot of locations available.  Joe and Louis both had 10, Gina had five, and Kevin had 13.  In the last year, I was able to pick up three to get to nine, and I had a wizard left over to hopefully win the final census to score a tenth tower.  Everything was going well until both Louis picked up three more towers and Joe snatched a single tower on the last action of the game.  I ended up getting eliminated, and Joe went on to win the game.

In the rail phase, Joe was taking loans like crazy, while Louis was able to build a sizable income.  Kevin was still working on Cotton Mills and connections.  I had build more in Preston and Lancaster and was actually able to build a boat up in the far North.  Joe managed to build two boats, but in the end it was Kevin that managed to win the game.  His connections and strong Cotton presence was too much to overcome.

Until next time, happy gaming!
