Also, I again made a few little mistakes during play, nothing world breaking, the kind of goofs players make during a normal game. If you want the full skinny, watch it live on Youtube so you can see the annotations .

I forgot one VERY VERY VERY important rule while playing! In addition to placing tiles to the right of other tiles to extend islands, you can also place tiles directly above or below existing tiles to start new chains that way, and this is a very useful way to avoid the problems with not grabbing left tiles.

So for instance, if you're stuck with a right tile, and can't place it anywhere to cap off an island, instead place it above or below an existing island chain. This is a major part of building strategy.

Sorry for the oversight! See video annotations for a couple of moments where the game would have been changed dramatically if I'd remembered this basic rule, at 15:36 & 17:03

Thanks to Eric Knauer for pointing this out (see below). I'm in your debt!
