it would be tedious but you can mouseover to determine what colour each polyp tile and cube is...

well interesting. Stompy would have swept the board clean with 6 unplayed grey tiles if I kept it for another round.

I was worried about Fraser, but I selected the yellow cube to stop him getting another shot at building his fourth coral up.

I thought you played that really well Jeff. Congrats.

fun game for sure.

I definitely think speed is a sound strategy and I find it hard to see how you can get games that last for over 10 rounds...

I need to play closer attention to the scoring and the locked dominance tiles.

thanks everyone.

My plan was to eat my orange tiles with the grey ones, leaving me with lots of consumed tiles to spend locking the colours up for points. I didnt' realise that you don't get the bonus tile if it is already covered, so I had to abandon the orange one to you. Fortunately you didn't have any orange tiles yourself.

Locking the tiles to maximise points seems to be an important strategy as well. I was able to put grey over white, which minimised Fraser's score and kept you from eating the critical fifth tile of my last coral.
