Just played this game
So Silk Roads
were on the board, but I looked around for support (Ironworks, Workshop, anything with +Buy) and there was little, only Pawn
. Still I decided to go for them and used Courtyard as a support card to line up some buys with the little money I had.
Was I right to go with Silk Roads with so little support?
My opponent quickly got to 4 Provinces and started whittling down the Gardens which I needed.
I scrambled a win by buying out the Estates and my 7 Silk Roads were 4 VP each while my 3 Gardens were 3 VP.
Considering a board of Courtyard, Gardens, Mining Village, Pawn, Peddler, Potion, Silk Road, Steward, Trading Post, Transmute, and Watchtower
what's your choice here? How would you go about Silk Roads and Gardens or would you focus on Provinces?
