The final RiotACT Sim Challenger was Dr Luciano Lombardo (Pangallo Independents, for Molonglo). He sat down to play last night in All Bar Nun.

A serious man, Dr. Lombardo approched his task with great seriousness. After a slow start he’d put his foundations in place and let the game speed rip to race to a respectable finish in a distributed city modelled somewhat after Canberra.

He finished with a population of nearly 18,000 and a huge $328,948 still left in the bank. Along the way he picked up 7 green bars of positive approval.

The environment was not rated strongly but was off the deck, safety was 50-50. Where he shone was in health, education, traffic, and land value.

Throughout the three hours he kept his budget balanced, or near to.

I can’t confess to taking much notice of what he was doing (though I congratulated him afterwards anyway!)

But as I’ve said elsewhere, just an absolutely sensationally top night.

JB, Jazz, che, et al: take a bow. And have fun tonight. I’ll be 180km away going through detox!!
