I don’t have any Finale cards… I finish with 8 VP.
I have no cards to play at all.
I finish with 11VP and 3 spice, which is the tiebreaker.
I was wondering why you were happy to be able to get $3 from secure contract!
Yes, I have it. Corner the Market: If I have the most Spice Must Flow then I get one extra vp, and a second vp if I have two Spice Must Flow.
What a ridiculously close game! Any one of any number of things could have swung things entirely a different way. I guess I can’t complain after all about my final hand of cards, even though I didn’t play any of them in the final round.
My final intrigue card was To The Victor: When you win a conflict, gain 3 spice.
I appreciate all of the work you guys did in providing me with pix this game.
I totally forgot the TSMF cards… it’s totally different than playing solo. If we do this again, I suggest putting the board state, market, conflict etc in the first post, for everybody to look up. And to update the first post.
Congrats to Dave VP Perkins…!
I almost took literally no actions this final round, not even a reveal to buy a Spice Must Flow, because I was sure that @newbrof would snatch the Bene Gesserit track from me, and I had no way to prevent that. Of my final five cards, three had no agent spots associated with them. The others were like, green, and green + purple. So I figured that I’d better not try for 10vp because I’d end up losing one and finish at 11vp, so maybe I should wait a round for my good cards to show up. Eventually, I figured that 11vp and a bunch of leftover spice was probably my best shot.
Not sure the boring anti-guessing spoilers helped keep anyone honest, but I thought it could. Alas, even my activity didn’t keep me my attention too much on the goings on, but it looked fun. Although with a disturbing lack of knife-fighting.
thanks very much for the intrigues. I don’t know how to do that step without programming a script myself…
I mean, a dishonest person would just click them. :)
Just an expression, it might be easy to intuit based on length even when you’re not trying.
I was thinking to play Scythe as a forum game. I have the board game etc. Never played it. However, I need to check what hidden information there is…
Good game everyone! Thanks to @Perky_Goth for the intrigue cards, @Ginger_Yellow for the screenshots, and @newbrof for keeping track of @Dave_Perkins’s stuff. And thanks to @Dave_Perkins for, er … winning?
That’s all I contributed, except for some grief! And yes thx @Perky_Goth for doing intrigues!
Super game. Thanks for playing.
Am I correct - were very few cards bought?
Dunno that that is true: I bought at least three—others bought as well. I’d say a fair number were bought overall.
EDIT: I bought Space Travel, Schpice Schmugglers, Imperial Spy, and Guild Ambassador. So that’s four. I think that’s a lot.
I bought too many and my Missionara strategy did not work. You need to play the Missionara after another BG card, harder to pull off actually. I always had better things to do.
I’ve played four or five games and have never seen so much not-buying.
Yeah, pity that. You got 3 BG cards, right? Did you manage to pick up a fourth? Though even with 3, you should have been able to pull it off at least once.
I did it once, and another time, I could have done it, but I needed to play something else and more often than not, I only had 1 Missionara and no other BG… and you need to play the other BG card in the agent phase. I think I wanted to use my fremen bond with my other BG card…
Ah, that’s alright, then. I thought you hadn’t gotten to use it at all. 2 is obviously better, but once is not unreasonable absent more strongly BG centered deck. But then the other players don’t always want to cooperate…
