This is going to be a short post, because I am tired. We finished our Here I Stand game not too long ago. I lost as the French, but came in second (22 VP) behind the Protestants (24 VP). With much wheeling and dealing, I got four card draws from various players and took Metz and Milan. Genoa ended up as a failure, and my explorations didn’t do too hot. Despite this, this was hands down the best I’ve ever played personally, and I am very happy with the way it ended up. Thanks to Phil, Dave, Nathan, Brad, and Dave for the great game, and congrats to second Dave for the excellent Protestant victory in turn five (and his “winner buys beer” motto). Very much looking forward to the next game on Thursday evening. My 22 VP should get me in a decent position to qualify for the semifinals. Okay–time to get to bed. My forays into multiplayer gaming are done for a bit. Tomorrow is Wilderness War and Hammer of the Scots.
