2 Days, 16+ Hours, 20 gamers, close to 40 different games – GAME SIX now brings us to the finale of this awesome Retreat. The most talked about game TROYES receiving the closing ceremony honor on Table #1 while two of the MASK Trilogy were on the next two tables – TIKAL & MEXICA. Table #4 saw re-emergence of GIANTS, another popular game from last year’s Retreat. Five gamers (Teddy, Junyet, Lee Ching, Kareem & Daren) are still in with a chance to win this semi-competitive tourney; three of them are in Table #1. Find out who’s the eventual winner!
GAME FIVE moved the pace up a notch with EL CAPITAN (formerly TYCOON), FRESCO and ACQUIRE seeing play-time while THEBES & CARSON CITY graced two other tables. Can Junyet climb back into Table #1 for the next & final GAME SIX? Let’s read on to find out which four gamers shall fight for the last battle in TROYES.
GAME FOUR in the 2nd Day brought out all the Super Heroes (and Heroines) as they started with an early morning trek up the treacherous K2 while some battled pirates in JAMAICA and a few were desperately trying to SURVIVE off a sinking island? No, it’s not LOST (TV).
GAME THREE brought out the best of the recent arrivals with AUTOMOBILE and NAVEGADOR claiming the top buzz while some of the older games HANSA TEUTONICA, LUNA and POWER STRUGGLE all making their impressions on their respective tables. Find out who lead the Retreat scoreboard after three rounds of semi-competitive gaming.
GAME TWO took the gamers from exotic unknown ALIEN FRONTIERS to the riches of VEGAS, then exciting treasure hunting in TOBAGO, the adrenalin rush of smuggling contraband to MACAO and then back to the wonders of MARS.
