Purple 6, red and yellow 3 each
The nature of the game for three players was noticeably different than it had been with four. With three players, that classic 'cut-throat' dynamic came into play, with the added bonus that in this game there are so many ways to do over both the opponents while nominally 'helping' one of them. Paul and I managed to practically 'give' Nancy's second territory of her eventual six to her and she never looked back from there. It seemed that two out of every three battles were in effect for the game from not long afterwards so that it is with some pride that we held her off for so long. Well done Nancy!
I'm looking forward to playing this with five or six players.
