Ha, they are not as vindictive as I am I guess. If I knew I could spend my political action to force someone to sacrifice a unit I would be doing it every turn. :D (assuming I didn’t have Nostradamus and his sweet bonus VP for playing new events). I’ve mostly been playing the expansion cards though, so I’m not sure how well the Castle wonder compares to the base-game wonders.
The final game is moving along, slowly but steadily. I feel like the other players are purposefully taking their time on their turns in order to take advantage of my lack of long-term memory. Like if it didn’t happen in the last 12 hours, it might as well have been in a different life time for me, and so each turn is a completely new experience. In more concrete terms,
- Thraeg is disdaining military and taking occasional bad-luck events in order to get lots of VPs. Wait no late-breaking news he did a military build up.
- Porous and Otto are going for more balanced approaches with strong armies and a mix of production and VPs
- I am building the largest hoard of rocks and ore, and then building Machu Picchu on top of them.
