Hmm, Power Grid and Tide of Iron also have a TriC of 115 :)

And for the ubergeeks here's the excel macro I used

Function TriC(reference As Range) As Integer
Dim Total As Integer
Total = 0
If reference.Cells.Count = 1 Then
Dim cell As String
cell = reference.Cells(1)
cell = LCase(cell)
If Len(cell) > 0 Then
For i = 1 To Len(cell)
code = Asc(Mid(cell, i, 1)) - 96
If code >= 1 And code <= 26 Then
Total = Total + code
End If
Next
End If
End If
TriC = Total
End Function

Dave, welcome to the crazy club. We have a seat reserved for you.

Excellent (and by that I mean wonderfully absurd and pointless) work!

I notice that El Grande, Taj Mahal, and Agricola are both 66. Bodes well for Agricola, perhaps, especially given the buzz surrounding the game.

 

Dave,

I am not worthy. Please take my seat - I'll sit on the floor.
