Final Scores:

1) Doug 122
2) Jenna 105
3) AndrewL 89
4) Jeff 84

Was a good game. I managed to score as much as I did by avoiding as much conflict as possible. I kinda stayed to the outside of the board while the other 3 punched each other in the face. Tile draws were fairly even this time around with nobody getting screwed too badly. Other than Jeff having a hard time getting to treasures early, I think everyone had some good opportunities to score points.

If anyone wants to play again, let me know. I'll start up another game.

What type of game were you playing Doug?. What is Tikal?

Its an action-point system where players send expeditions to uncover the ancient temples and treasures of Tikal. Its part of the Kramer/Kiesling "Mask Trilogy" of games - the other 2 being Mexica and Java. On the complexity scale it falls between Mexica and Java. Its not a hard game to learn rules-wise, but it does take a game or two to wrap your head around the strategies that'll help you be a better player.
