Louise was the surprise winner of the game through sheer quantity of settlements and cities. She got hemmed in by Paddy and I think Matt and so didn't have much space to build out, but it turned out that there was exactly enough space to place four cities and a couple more settlements for the win. It helped that she got a good supply of stone and wheat (9 and 6 were the lucky dice rolls in this game - 7 was surprisingly rare). I got up to eight points in the final round but couldn't manage the final couple of points.
Oh yes - there was also more SCIENCE BREAD with the other tiger bread baton that we froze last week. I tried garlic granules today with Stork spread, parsley and cheese. Verdict was again mostly successful though the bread hadn't quite defrosted and needed quite a bit more time in the oven than we expected. Plus the garlic spread mix was rather uneven, as Sarah found it when she discovered a very garlicky bit! We ended up discussing other possible fillings - I wonder if a hint of chilli would work?
