    (I'll wait for combat to resolve and maybe for an update before I take my turn. On a brighter note, I finally took a turn without messing up! #victory)

    I'm getting the sinking feeling that I'm playing for 3rd place here.

    And I honestly have no freaking clue what do to about that.....

    I am fully convinced that I am playing to see how close to second-to-last I can get from last place.

    My problem is that I don't have a grasp on what actual action needs to be taken to slow you and Preda down.

    If I knew what could actually affect either of your progress, I would try to bribe, but as it stands, I'm not seeing any specific action to be taken that works.

    I am not sure you're that behind.
    Or even necessarily in last now.
    But I've not calculated it, so...

    Well, you could try just giving me all your money?
    Might be worth a shot?

    In all honesty though, this game appears to be made early to mid-game, and there's not a lot people can do to each other early game.
    Perhaps if people moved out more aggressively mid then there'd be some counter-play available, but I just stuck to my island largely...

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Yeah, I’m moving along just fine, but then suddenly you’ve jumped ahead. I can’t even pinpoint when, honestly.

    I’ve been pretty good with double moves to be efficient but in comparison it seems like your moves have pushed you further.

    I’ll fully admit I don’t know the right strategy here, so it’s more hats off to you for going ahead. But you’re right, feels like it’s too late to do much about it.

    I think it's more I got my Factory card early.
    That fed into more Encounters (which are basically triple moves) and I only needed to Produce to Deploy. Trade feeds my Enlist, and the Deploy cash fed my factory Upgrades.
    So I've rarely had an action where I've not been able to take the lower action, whilst pushing those three stars.
    And buildings suck :P (cause my card hates them)

    I'm not sure how other non-Township factions get out to the Factory that early, but it seems like that should be the idea if possible...
    But perhaps not.
    Perhaps the Polar bear is supposed to Encounter as much as possible (with a factory card's speed?), Preda is supposed to blitzkrieg, Crimea is supposed to build a card engine, and the Nord's supposed to just fill space with swimming meeple..

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    I grabbed four encounters, so pretty hefty bonuses.

    Wondering if player mats paired oddly. I don’t find my in-upgradeable upgrade action to be that great, since it has the highest payout but can’t do anything about that cost.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Don't know.
    Perhaps Produce to +5 workers, pump out oil, use Pop from Trade/Upgrade to pay for Produce?

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Yeah, I’m missing something and I’m strongly believeing it’s that I’m just going the wrong way. There’s so much to track in this game across everyone, it probably is just getting more familiar so the first few turns aren’t looking at the rules as to what you’re allowed to do.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    I'm not really certain looking at other people helps that much until mid-game.
    Unless you're going to Enlist.

    Your upgrade action is on trade, actually making it cost only 1. I would have started by move-trading till you had 3 metal, built cross river mech (while producing extra workers), than would have moved a worker to the oilfield and started upgrading as soon as possible, while getting to 5 workers (1 for oil, 2 for metal, 2 for wood, later to become 1 wood 1 food).
    You actually had one of the slower starting combo of race-mat possible. I would have loved your mat with any nation that start with an oilfield.

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    That actually makes a lot of sense. That's where I'm thinking that my failure point is, I didn't go after oil hard enough.

    Ah well, I can still try to grab some stars here. May not catch the leader, but I should be in a position to push hard for a solid third place.

    I should have 7 power, 18 gold, 2 oil on the oilfield, 2 metal on the mountain and other 2 metal on the farm, with popularity 8.
    @AustinP0027 next.

    I count 20 gold. 13 + 1 upgrade + 2 encounter + 2 enlist + 2 one time enlist bonus.

    @MrBody I spent all the Food on the tile with 4 Workers, which I realize now I did not describe well in the action where it was spent.

    Corrected my power expenditure, and the mat doesn't appear correct either.
    Please reconfirm your previous turns.

    I should also be down one power.
