I wrote a short review of Ta Yü yesterday and that inspired me to play a game. I played with Johanna and she beat me… But it was pretty close, just 25-21. It’s interesting how we both had ten connections, but as she had 5×5 and I had 3×7, she won. The scoring system is really rather simple but also very clever.
We were playing in less-than-optimal environment, so I didn’t bother with laying out the tiles, we just drew from the bag. I didn’t miss the chance to pick a tile marked with circles, at least much.
I did some changes to my blog roll on the sidebar. It’s now provided by Bloglines, which is a pretty neat service. I added a subscription link on the sidebar, as well. I highly recommend you check it out, if you’re still reading this blog and others in the old-fashioned way.
