05-04-2021 16:41:40 UTC

A measly celestial body as a first play? Wearing Arlecchino? That’s gonna be a Sfida, bud.

(This game was missing its Environment link, which has now been added. Previous moves were all, I assume, invalid - up to the players whether they repeat them, or CfJ to re-deal the game, or something else.)


06-04-2021 13:03:46 UTC

I’m up for an agreement to repeat moves so far if we’re agreed that moves so far are invalid - Clucky?

Clucky: he/him

06-04-2021 15:19:35 UTC

yeah I donno if we can just say “we repeat” but I will for my first move play a sun

Clucky: he/him

06-04-2021 15:19:56 UTC

I will then offer a Sfida


06-04-2021 15:40:58 UTC

I accept, and sfida back.

Clucky: he/him

Josh: Bookie he/they

06-04-2021 18:58:25 UTC

This is gripping

Clucky: he/him

06-04-2021 19:00:11 UTC

I haven’t followed all of them but certainly the most tense game of Giolitti I’ve played


06-04-2021 19:03:12 UTC

10 of Coins; Aria and Toro again, scoring 5, total 17.

Wew, excellent game. Sometimes you have to watch someone hit that straight draw.

Clucky: he/him

06-04-2021 19:09:40 UTC

gg. Was certainly holding my breath before you played that 10 to see if you were gonna do something like Knight/Nine/King to get your Toro. You just got a classic case of “great hand, but the wrong great hand for that particular game”

Have to go back and see, but 17 has gotta be a record for a loss, right?

Kevan: he/him

Game is Clean. Clucky wins 3 Pegs and 3 Magistrelli; Pokes loses 3 Pegs.

No Peg gain from Masks. Arlecchino gains Moda.
