May 19 is Plant Something Day.
Except for me it was "Get the Results from Autism and Neuropsychological Tests Day" - and afterwards I didn't feel like setting up something new on the table. I was confused and nervous most of the day. (Though don't get me wrong, I am very glad to have had these tests and now have a better diagnosis.)
Apex Predator was still on the table, so I played that. The dinosaurs refused to plant something. Then Underwater Cities at the Yucata website. I guess I planted virtual kelp? But I wanted to play At the Gates of Loyang. Some days later I got to it.
Five years ago this was my favourite solo game. And I don't know what was the matter last year, but this is yet another game that I haven't played for over a year. Let me check the statistics. Ah, I see now that in 2020 I binge played Shadowrun Crossfire, then Marvel Champions and after that everything (not just playing board games) came to a grinding halt. Time flies. Where was I. Loyang. Finally back on the table.
I started without any regular customers available, but there was one in a two-pack, and I decided to pick market stalls the first few turns to be prepared for anything. I managed to reach 17 points, with 10 spare yuan, which felt good.
Such a brilliant game, unlike any other I own. One day I'll reach 19 points.
