Game Lost Cities

Round 1 (20120804)

20090824:
I found an undated piece of paper with two games of Lost Cities between Daniel and me. I don't know if it was for this day, but instinct tells me it was.

Detailed breakdown:

Round 2 (20120804)

20100122:
Whoa... I didn't write down what I got on the first game, but it was also a horrible loss. I wonder what the strategy is, because I'm pretty sure I don't know it.

20100417:
Caroline's first game of Lost Cities. In a game consisting of one round, had Caroline drawn from the board instead of the draw pile, she would have avoided losing 14 points for a total of 22 points, besting my score of 21 by 1 point.

20120804:
On 20170526, I was going through various draft posts and eventually I came across one post with a bunch of numbers.


At first all I could tell was that Josh and I had played a game, but I couldn't make heads or tails of what game was being played. In attempting to solve the mystery I tried to figure out the differences between a lower-case 'x' and an upper-case 'X', but I didn't have much luck. Then, after studying the scores long enough, I had realized there were always five sets of scores per line. Somehow it then clicked to me that the scores were for a game of "Lost Cities"; I suppose the comment "[b]ad to have played all colors the way I did" had played its part in jogging my memory. However, in hindsight, I should have first tried using the draft's publish date (20120805) and cross-referencing that date against my picture log.

Detailed breakdown:
G#R#I_-_Y-_B-_W-_G-_R=-_T
0101JK+xx+62+01+xx+06=+69
0101TT-10+00+16+06+08=+20
0102JK+xx+22+01+09+xx=101
0102TT+16+xx+02+xx+44=+82
0103JK+00+24+18+32+03=178
0103TT+03+06-04-18-18=+51
Notation: Game #; Round #; Initials; Yellow; Blue; White; Green; Red; Cumulative Total.
Also 'xx' denotes the color was not played.
