Hm... I never received the invite, I just tried inviting you though. Lemme know if you don't get it.

It seems that typing is not my strong point, I entered your name wrong.

I got your invite and have set-up the game.

Pacman hits a Xeron Duke of lies who steals my Project Alpha. My one decent card in a deck of crap. It's enough for the win in game 2. On to game 3!

I almost felt guilty about that....almost :).

That was a slightly weird game, no card banishers until fairly late it seemed, led to some huge decks. I think I had something like 14 Heavy Infantries by the end.

I have eked out a win over TheWalt in 3 tough games.

Game 1: Pacman 60 - 75 TheWalt
Game 2: Pacman 93 - 76 TheWalt
Game 3: Pacman 67 - 59 TheWalt

The end of that third game went fast! I think we went from 36 points left to done in 2 rounds. I never felt secure in either of the games I won, and if not for that lucky theft of Project Alpha in game 2 I suspect I wouldn't have made it to a game three, very well played.

Good games Pacman. Last turn pulled out the game and match victory for you! Good show.

That was one of those games where it felt like every single hand I got matched exactly with what was in center row. I wish I had a few more like that.

Ranger Rick and I are done with me winning 2-0:
113-71
89-74

As I said above the first game came out perfectly for me. The second match felt closer than the final score.

Jon and I have started our games.

Chumpy and I are in the middle of an epic all out brawl. The scores for the 2 games so far have been 100-90 and 88-91 lol. Good luck to you for the third game, and this has been absolutely fun.

zelos79 DESTROYED me in both our games.

Excellent games so far. Your gamble in game 2 paid off nicely; I had a couple of draws that were so close to perfect, but it wasn't meant to be...

Mudbunny takes game 1 over m0nk3yboy by a score of 82 to 52. I think that you were trying to get a mechana engine going, but it never quite came together for you. My hand, on the other hand, seemed to be filled with draw another card and cards that let me thin out my deck quite quickly. That, combined with some lucky guesses for the Great Raven (of which I had 2) let me, at about 1/3 to 1/2 way through the mach, really start to pick up steam. If you can thin your deck down to 1 card, it is not really a guess anymore and it is 3 free points.

Challenge sent to Rob, sorry for the delay.

And Game 2 goes to m0nk3yboy with a score of 78 to 69. I am not sure that either of us had a specific plan or strategy in this round. I know by the end I had upwards of 30 cards in my hand. I think I managed to banish 2 of them in total. This was, pure and simple, a grind.

Absolutely. My main strategy was 'keep the high card values away from mudbunny'... Looking forward to the decider!

Just finished two fine games with TorqGWJ. I won both, the first being a Construct-heavy blowout 125-74, and the second being a much closer 63-52.

Good games!

Just a reminder, for those players who are 2-0, winning a third clinches you a spot into the playoffs.
