Since Bruce broke out last game, we’re starting a new game. Me, Troy Goodfellow, and Bruce Geryk, thrown into Hell with three AI dudes. Since Bruce cheaped out with a rush build in our first game – take a Prince with a bad-ass starting unit and just grab Places of Power early on – it looks like that’s exactly what we’re all doing this time. We’re all three Princes, which also means no one has a diplomatic leg up on the others. Even one of the AI dudes in a Prince.
Fortunately, I started right next to the Mines of Gehenna, one of the few formidable Place of Power that gives you two prestige per turn instead of just one. Also, I managed to draw enough resources on my first turn to snag the Broken Wheel, an artifact that’s particularly useful for attacking Places of Power. So, as of turn 2, I get a bad-ass Place of Power.
Unfortunately, so do those jerks. How did you guys do that so quickly?
