Through the Ages online

Starting a new topic based on discussion elsewhere.

If you have a hard time finding the time to play a full game of Through the Ages (or you want to see what all the hoopla is about), there is a web site where you can play the game: http://www.boardgaming-online.com/index.php?cnt=1

As far as I can tell,  it's designed to handle a game over the course of days/weeks/months. Hell, if everyone is online at the same time, I suppose you could complete a game within a day.

The interface is not 100% intuitive or really even documented. For that reason, it's been suggested that you play a game with yourself first so you can get used to the interface before diving into other games. It does help. You create a game and then add other players, only the other players are yourself. So, you can have a game with four players all named the same. It can get a little confusing, but the interface also designates by color, so it's all good.

I still like the online forum because I can access it with my phone, and I'm not always working on a computer where I should have nontext elements; this forum is stretching it. However, I can play on BGO at home as well and get my TtA fix.

I'm thinking I might join a game or two on there. I notice Galzria appears to be about to start a game.

Okay I'm starting a game for anyone from here who wants to join. Password is DominionStrategy. I'll set it to 3 player to be optimistic but not too optimistic. If anyone wants help with rules etc. I can probably help (but I've been known to get things wrong, in the game I'm moderating...)

Yeah, I've been fiddling with the setup, trying to get a feel for it. It's a bit difficult to follow, and it really helps to know the cards. But it's not impossible. Military/Political Actions seem the hardest to wrap my head around on the site.

Any idea what the best way to delete games that I'm in and no longer want to be? (I've got two self-filled games that I would rather not have on my list anymore, and I can't figure out how to resign/leave)

No idea here, I'm afraid. I'm tempted to say if you start the game, there should be an option to resign for each player's turn.

I wish it could send e-mail or something when it's my turn. I have to constantly check back, which is fruitless if nobody has made a move lately.

So, for that, I am appreciative of the forum format. At least when TtAI starts back up again, I'll receive notification.

Maybe I shouldn't have joined that game Galz made. Now us three are in two games...

Yeah, I was disappointed there isn't email notifications. I pressed the button to turn them on, but it looks like it's for something else.

Can you provide links to the games for watching?

Also, as mentioned somewhere else, I'm in for a game in about 2 weeks.

Great, now my horrible gameplay is open to all to laugh at…especially my mistaken Promise of Military Protection.

I dunno... I'm terrified you're both not going to play aggressions against each other, and leave me in the dust :(. Then again, it is beneficial for both of you to target aggressions against the other in a pact, so... I dunno

I find the lack of banter to be a major drawback of the site. It's not that the Chat function is difficult to use, but it feels like an extra step. Especially compared to the PBF format.

That, and I generally don't take the time to click through and look back at each of your turns, so I rarely know what's going on outside my Civilization. (Except to note that both the Irons were taken on me... Again.)

I've been reading a little TtA theory, saying Iron is overrated. And I can see where they're coming from. Sure, resource production might be vital in just about every strategy, but Iron itself is expensive (5 science is more expensive than any age I tech except peaceful change of government and Code of Laws, AND it's 5 resources, less efficient than Bronze). You just need to be a little more clever, because you can't just stick 5-6 guys onto Bronze and expect to have no problems whatsoever.

Yeah, I agree. I like bantering. I am grateful for the Chat feature, but it doesn't seem to be first and foremost in my mind.

And yeah, I don't follow the journal either. I'm in three different games right now. When I begin my turn (or make a decision based on someone else's turn), it feels almost like I'm starting in the middle of some board game. I don't quite have the same connection to my past history and definitely not the past histories of others. I'm playing one game where I watched these other players shoot up to the 20s in terms of military while I'm lagging behind. It's always a surprise to me when I hover over their names and go, "How did he get so high?"

Yeah, I played a solo game running high-happiness, with lots of farms/bronze. It's doable, but very touchy. Leaves you strong in the switch to Age 3 though since your people are in place already.

Sure, resource production might be vital in just about every strategy, but Iron itself is expensive (5 science is more expensive than any age I tech except peaceful change of government and Code of Laws, AND it's 5 resources, less efficient than Bronze). You just need to be a little more clever, because you can't just stick 5-6 guys onto Bronze and expect to have no problems whatsoever.

I played around on my solo games and found myself being better able to manage resources even without Iron.

I still think that it's damned handy, but I can believe that it's overrated. What could you do in place of the action used to discover Iron and upgrade one mine to gain 1 Resource/turn in Age I and beyond?

Take and play Engineering Genius to gain 3-5 Resources
Take and play Mineral Deposits to gain 2-4 Resources
Take and play Ideal Building Site to gain 2-4 Resources
Take and play Patriotism to gain 2-4 Resources
Discover Masonry and gain 1 Resource/urban building built
Discover Architecture and gain even more Resources for urban buildings built


I guess it depends on opportunity. Getting it early in Age I is of a great benefit, because that 1 Resource/turn easily earns you double-digits. It's still pretty handy at the end of Age I, but I could see how someone may want to save his Science for Coal.

Part of the game is also card management. I've gotten caught up in taking technology cards, but they do no good if your Science isn't strong. The action cards can help you out with those.

I do get a little annoyed at how I feel like I'm falling backward when upgrading mines. I spend 3 to upgrade. I then gain 1 extra. So, I net -2 Resources every time I upgrade a mine. I won't see that investment again for another 2 turns. In the meantime, I could have built a Lab or more military or completed my Basilica.

I may have to read up on some of these theories. It'll drive my wife nuts. She already doesn't like that I've improved my understanding of the game by playing it online.

Yeah, I agree with you Watno. It feels a little less personal though. I'd like the chat to be slightly more active, oh well.

Incidentally, Kuildeous, I think it's your turn in both the games I'm in.

The big advantage of bgo over forum play is that you don't have to have a mod who you have to wait for, and who can make mistakes, I guess.

This is verging on the absurd here, but I suppose the mod could create a solo game of his own on BGO and run the game from there. That way, the mod cannot make mistakes because the system won't let him. When that happens, he goes back to the forum and says, "Oh, hey, that doesn't work because you need 7 Resources to pull that off, and you only have 6."

Why wouldn't those players go to BGO instead? Well, like I said, I like the forum for chatting and e-mail notifications. I'm willing to endure moderator delays as long as the moderator has the time to keep on top of things. I suspect that most of us in the forum games are obsessive enough about games that we have no problem there. The forum and spreadsheet format works better for me 24 hours a day, rather than when I'm only on my desktop.

But, I don't see a problem with a mod using BGO to run the game. It's all randomized for him and everything.

I'm sure that's true, but I won't be logging into that until I get home. Another downside to BGO for me. I have to be less obsessive with that site than the forum.

But I'll play my moves in a couple of hours.

If I had the knowledge to write some short script to scrap information from a BGO page and convert it into an easy to use text output, I would love to do that. It has the secondary benefit of the mod not knowing what's coming next either.

I've started a four-player game, if any of you want to join it. Game name is Dominion Strategy, password is Dominion.

I'm in three games already on there.

But if you find yourself lacking a player, hit me up. I'm sure I can add a fourth.

Well, and one game will be over soon. I think there are 12 cards left in Age III.

I find the lack of banter to be a major drawback of the site. It's not that the Chat function is difficult to use, but it feels like an extra step. Especially compared to the PBF format.

I don't really like how sending a message in chat takes you immediately back to board view. I understand it is most efficient, but it feels odd that you don't get to look at your message after submitting it.

PS. Joined DominionStrategy game (id 150587). Is your gameplay really of King *** size? Because mine isn't.

Alright, I've got a question:

I'm in the middle of my turn. I started with 4 CA, and discovered Alchemy for my first action. I've now got 3 CA remaining. I've got 3 Workers in my Pool, and 7 Bronze in my supply.

The system won't let me build Alchemy. Why?

Complete Stats:

Agriculture (0 Workers): 2 Chips
Irrigation (2 Workers): 4 Chips

Bronze (3 Workers): 7 Chips

Philosophy (2 Workers)

Religion (1 Worker)

5 Blue Chips in supply
17 Yellow Chips in supply

Own Fertile Territory I

1 Civil Card in Hand (Masonry)
2 Military Cards in Hand (Enslave, Heavy Cavalry)

Aristotle is elected leader.

http://www.boardgaming-online.com/index.php?cnt=202&msg=400&pl=150716&nat=4

So, what am I missing here?

**Edit: For the record, I CAN individually upgrade each of my current Philosophic Workers (at 3R each) to Lab Workers, leaving me with 1 Resource. But I don't WANT to do that, because I want to burn resources here, and I want the extra CA to increase population.

Are you still in Despotism? You can only have two urban buildings of the same type. You already have two labs, so you can't build a third one.

If you're no longer a despot, then I am at a loss.

Incidentally, I find myself less worried about corruption nowadays. I worked my tail off to prevent corruption, but I think that sometimes it's just something worth doing.

In your case, you want to burn 6 out of 7 Resources to build a new Alchemy, leaving you 1 Resource plus Production. If you cannot do that, then you have to instead upgrade a Philosophy to Alchemy for 3 out of 7 Resources. That leaves you with 4 Resources plus Production. Even if you hit corruption, you'll still be one ahead.

I'm becoming more comfortable with that idea. I always fought to have 0 corruption before.

Yeah, 1 set of Corruption (2 lost resources) isn't always the end of the world. Hitting double corruption hurts though, especially when you're still producing Bronze.

That seems to be a common mistake, right up there with the rule that discovering a military tech is still a civil action.

That one doesn't bug me. MA's are any Military Card (PA's or Formations), and building Units.

Actually, I'm probably more likely to forget that building units is a MA, not a CA, since it's spending my resources.

Whelp, looks like our games have been broken.

Quote from: BGO
There has been a major incident due to a program change that was done yesterday. All games that have been played during the last 12 hours have been irreversably damaged. I am currently working on restoring the database from yesterday morning. I will keep you updated when the site is ready.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Edit: On the plus side, as best I can see, our games *might* be unaffected by this. Apparently the issue was with cards added in the expansions and/or changed in the expansions (including Bach, Hammurabi, Kremlin, Classic Army, Napoleonic Army and probably others), they've all disappeared. So... we might have escaped. Or the game might be reset to a previous state.

That's a shame. I've joined both games, I'm also going to launch a global game with unrevealed removed leaders/wonders (this has new wonders and leaders and I think a few tactics are changed)

Pity. I felt actually kind of competent in one of those.

I really need to work on becoming a military juggernaut somehow. It felt kind of nice to initiate a Raid with no repercussions. Well, not immediately anyway. I'm sure there would have been retribution in my future at some point.

Being strongest in military has it's own advantages. Events tend to favor you, and you're basically immune to aggressions. If you're strong enough to launch aggressions of your own, even better, but the military action cost is surprisingly high.

All I know is that Confucius + Parthenon = Age 1 Drama on crack. Seriously, each Age A Religion becomes worth 2 Culture, 1 Science, and 1 Happy Face. And at a price per that's 2 Resources cheaper than Drama? And no science discovery cost? Delicious! (Wonder must built though)

Heh, well, the issue here is once Confucious dies, they lose that 1 science, and become just Dramas, and Drama isn't great (Opera and Movies can be, Drama... less so). And of course, this is all contingent on also getting both of them, AND building the Parthenon.

Yeah, but it's not meant to be a staple for the game, just a damn good leg up early - and it's not like those Religion's can't be upgraded to Theology later, to set yourself in Happy for the game. I mean, even with just Confucious, while he dies eventually, killing two birds with one stone (Science/Happy) lets you really conserve early resources. Yeah, the Parthenon in just a nice add on. But the strength comes from Science+Happy together, early in Age A.

It's not dominant, but I think it stands quite strongly against almost anything else that was offered in just the Base game.

No, but having them in Age I without having to go out of your way to get them, is particularly nice, especially if those faces come with free Science attached.

Also, I often find that I don't like leaving workers sitting unused in my pool, and find places to use them. So without early Happy, I have Civil disorder. I don't usually need more that ONE in Age A, although occasionally 2 Happy doesn't go amiss if increasing my population is easy (Leader, Frugality, whatever).

Can you provide links to the new games for watching?
Also, how many games have you played already, Galz?
Three Weeks ago you didn't even know the rules, and now you're already talking about what you usually do.

Way too many. I've got 13 completed, ranging from 2-4 player games, since BGO lets you load each game with copies of yourself. So it's easy to test out heavy Military vs Heavy Science vs Heavy resources vs What happens if you miss Iron vs etc.

Interesting note, although I guess it makes sense... but if you have Forefather Czech, and you're building a Wonder who has a Stage at cost "1" - while you CAN build it for "free", it DOES still steal a token marker from your bank - So if that single Token is the tipping point to Corruption, it doesn't exactly cost you "nothing" after all. :P

I'll admit, this was the first game that I expanded to, well, expansions. So maybe it's "grass is greener" syndrome, but man do some of those cards look nice. The change to Hammurabi, for example, may seem small, but not loosing that Military Action... just feels like such an upgrade. I don't know. I'm running solo games now to play around with the new cards/changes, but it just... feels stronger all around.

But I guess that's true with any game and expansions at first. The real test is if they overshadow the original, or meld in nicely. /shrug. Time will tell I suppose.

I believe the spanish expansions makes his military units cost one more instead, but that isn't on BGO (maybe it's not out IRL yet?). He is supposed to be one of the best leaders without his loss of military action.

But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

I have printed myself some cards using Jonas Havreglids' suggestions as well as BGO 2.0. I modified Hammurabi such that instead of -1 MA, you can hold one military card less in hand. Not enough playtesting so far, but this slightly less impaired Hammy should be in the range of the other Leaders' prowess.

Also, I have to actively avoid both Confucii entering the game.

My wife would kill me if I played an online blitz game and not a real game with her.
Sometimes I covet my neighbour's wife. My wife, after three games (and my assassination of her Napoleon), quipped that she doesn't need to play a game to try to make the best out of limited resources. (She does like Village and Terry Mystica, though.)

I started a new one titled f.DS.7 if anyone feels like playing another game simultaneously. If not I'll just wait until it fills or dies and try again. (same password as above).

It's true. I'm a bad person.

I missed out on the last one, so I made sure to jump into this one.

That puts me at two games, which is about in my comfort range. I was at three games at one point, and I was mostly okay with that, but I was definitely getting a little confused.

I did get a little confused when I had something like 5 games, 3 of which I was running super-heavy military in age III with Napoleon.

Did I see that Cayvie is "-----" on BGO? I thought so, but I'm confused because Cayvie has been inactive on these games, but ----- is still chugging along on BGO.

This is correct - but she isn't joining new ones there (that I've seen), only finishing up the games that she's in.

I think.

Forums are harder when life gets you busy. They keep moving, and the further behind you get, the harder it is to find the time/desire to catch back up.

BGO stops and waits every time it's your turn.

Still, it is a little bit strange that she's consistently active there but not a word here. :(

I think she has been prodded in some games.

Not sure what to do about it, but she doesn't seem interested in returning right now, which we have to respect. I think the best thing to do is just try and replace her in ongoing games, and welcome her back if she ever returns.

Speaking of BGO though. coughKuildeouscough

Well, true, it's not like she doesn't know the games are happening. So, it's a deliberate for whatever reason, and we don't know what that reason is. I'll leave it alone.

Did I see that Cayvie is *** on BGO? I thought so, but I'm confused because Cayvie has been inactive on these games, but *** is still chugging along on BGO.

Given that this forum is public and searchable and everything while BGO is password protected (and people seem to be much more willing to play under real name there) I would rather not see associations between their BGO names and the f:DS or isotropic names posted here.

I've noticed I'm only in 1 game currently, which is far too manageable, so I've made two more.

I'm not sure if I just missed it before or if it was added (didn't see in developer notes), but you can edit your profile, and it will in fact send you e-mail updates when it's your turn. Neat!

Bwahaha! Fresh meat!

In all seriousness, it's a pretty good game that allows you to play in a quasi-solitaire fashion. Just keep in mind that it's not solitaire. Of course, you have to consider whether you should take something from the card row before someone else does or let it move to the cheaper area. And you could deprive someone of a useful card.

And don't neglect your military. You'll be tempted to; I know I am. After all, everything else you build you see an immediate benefit. Build a farm/mine, and you see production. Build arenas, theatres, and philosophy, and you see happiness. Build libraries and labs, and you see science. Building a warrior seems so insignificant in comparison, but strength can be important in many regards. It makes other civilizations less likely to attack you. In fact, if someone else does ignore military, then you can attack him. It can also be important for certain event cards. There are not as many as I thought, but there are still plenty of cards out there that reward strong civilizations or punish weak civilizations. There is (IIRC) no card that throws a bone to a weaker civilization, a fact that drove my wife nuts the first couple of times she played it. And hey, that warrior can be more than just a +1 to your strength. If it gets close, you can sacrifice him for another +1.

That's not to say that strength is the end-all. In another game, I won a War over Culture 17 to 1. I gained 16 culture while he lost 16 culture. Sounds like a nice 32-point swing, except that he's still way ahead of me in culture. We'll see if I can overtake him toward the end. I'll hope for more opportunities to declare war on him. Heh.

Happiness is a bit like strength: It just sits there and doesn't produce anything.

... strength can be important in many regards. It makes other civilizations less likely to attack you.

In two-player games, strength is central. In four-player games, it is important not to fall behind in strength. Someone raids you, you sacrifice a Knights and play a Defense card. The next one plunders you cause you are weaker for the scarifice. Your turn. Oops, no resources to replenish. The third one plays War over Territory. One turn later and you lack three yellow pips so your workers frantically multiply and idle just to avert civil disorder. From then on, you are like a jeweller's shop with a smashed window.

If you are last but trailing the leader by not more than a Defense card you may be fine for a turn. If you are better than last, you may seed events and collect the bonus (and maybe even bid for that territory that comes up). You may skip building strength but have to watch the strength score closely. If you are leading in strength, you may even seed and profit from the upcoming event. If you are leading by a bit of a margin ... hey ... is that a Raid card in your hand?

Question about the interface:

What's with the unhappy faces at the top of the screen with the mouseover text of "Corruption"? As far as I gather, I've got no corruption until I use enough blue discs to pass the -2R symbol on the blue bank. Is it just a warning that I'm getting close?

I've made number 11 (ID:159512). It's only a two player game and I'd appreciate if you only joined if you're able to check back every few hours most days. My first game's going a bit slower than I'd have liked for my first (learning) game, so I intend this one to go a bit faster and probably overtake my first game quickly. I'm hoping to be able to play at least 2-3 turns each day, but obviously it's okay if there's the odd day you can't manage to make that many, I'll have a few days like that too (for example today, if the game started immediately I'll probably only be able to play 1-2 turns today).

Password is Dominion, obviously.

If you've not played 2 player yet that'll put us on a (kind of) even footing so it sounds good to me. It's fine if you can't do too much at the weekend as long as we pick up the pace a bit next week. Go for it. Thanks.

Either of you can rename this game to f.DStrategy 12 if you like (play -> rename game).

It's good if we keep the same prefix so we can filter for all those forum matches.

I can't see the board in f.DStrategy.6 anyore, it just shows me the navigation bar with a big white emptyness where the game is supposed to be. Can you still see it? Anyone know how to fix this?
I can still see the boards of other games, switching browser doesn't help, and i can still se the journal and the discard pile via the play tab

Ok, now it says its under maintenance

And I've posted lucky 13.  Prefer newish players, will be semi-slow.

Edit:  Of course the password is Dominion.

Anyone interested?

Joined. I dunno if I'll school you, I think my opening play is pretty solid but I'm really bad at working out what to do in age II onwards.

My bad, didn't think we were on 12 yet.

*looks at score* I hope you've learnt a bit, it's quite frustrating when the other civ walks all over you, but it has happened to me more often than not.

I don't think it was as bad as the score looks. I felt like I was doing well up until age 3, and then one aggression just destroyed my military and I fell apart after that. I should have resigned, but I played it out as there was only 1 age left and I wanted to see what there was and just play about a bit since it was my first real game. The fact that I stayed in the game to play it out allowed the scores to become what they did.

But yeah, I did learn a bit. I thought I understood the whole "don't get left behind in military" thing, and I did try. My military tactics just weren't enough and my lack of diversifying from soldiers for my army meant I was unable to play new tactics in later rounds. I've definitely taken the value of other units away from that game. (My reasoning in that game was "well they cost the same and give the same strength, but I already have soldiers so I can upgrade them for cheaper than buying a whole new type of unit", little did I know the true value of your units comes from the tactics cards, not the units themselves.)

I agree that it was much closer. You probably shouldn't have defended the aggression because that gave me an open door for the war. You did pretty well otherwise. Military is pretty important in two-player games as I can put pressure on you without having to fear that another player gets benefit from it.

Well, not quite losing, but hardly winning. And my military draws have been pretty bad.

For Tables:

From the Spanish Edition:

Actions:

Falles (Age II): Remove a card from the card row. When you play Falles, you get 1 civil action back.
La Porxada (Age II): Pay 2 Food to Produce 4 Resources, or pay 2 Resources to Produce 4 Food.

Wonders:

Sagrada Familia (Age III): Cost: 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4...4
Sagrada Familia has unlimited steps. At the end of the game, you score 4 culture for each step built.

Leaders:

El Cid (Age I): Military unit technologies cost you 2 science less. While all players have a higher strength than yours, your military units cost you 1 resource less.
John Amos Comenius (Age II): Special technologies costs you less science equal to their level. Your libraries produce an extra 1 science or an extra 1 culture (your choice).
Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Age III): One of your best library produces double culture and science. Your libraries cost you 2 resource less to build.

Events:

Inquisition (Age II): Each civilization scores 1 culture per level of each of their temples. The urban building limit for labs and libraries is reduced by 1 for each player until the active players next political phase. Players must immediately destroy any exceeding urban building.
Impact of Politicians (Age III): Each civilization loses 2 culture for each empty slot on its blue bank.

Tactics:

Tercios (Age II): Infantry x3 = 5(2)

All of these are cards that are added as listed by BGO's Civilopedia in the GLOBAL version, but come from the Spanish. I'm not sure atm if there are more cards in the Spanish version that are not included in the Global - and I know for a fact that the Spanish version has some changes to current cards that are NOT carried over to the Global (for example, in the Spanish Version Hammurabi gives an additional CA while making Military Units cost 1 more). I'm not sure what that complete list of changes is.

Thanks. Don't know why I can't check the civilopedia currently. Kinda annoying, might try opening BGO in Firefox or something. Regarding Hammurabi, I saw a poll on the forum for which version should be kept in the Golbal version (posted by the webmaster), the overwhelming response was to use the spanish version.

Sounds as if politicians don't like Goudy.

Nevermind, I put up f.DStrategy 17, a three-player match in the Spanish variety. I'll be at home over the weekend (GMT + 1h) quite a lot and would like to nearly complete the match over the weekend.

I'd be up for the Spanish version. I will be around this weekend but not 100%, so I'll leave it alone for now. If I see that there's still an opening,  I'll hop in. Odds are likely that if you can't fill the game up soon, then it's not going to finish this weekend anyway.

Galzria has joined, which means a match across nine time zones. Not so optimistic about a fast game anymore so you might as well join, the more so as I will have some dead hours (household chores, kids) too.

My schedule gets pretty whacky as well. Depending on when in the week it is you could get me doing things as early as 8am and as late as 4am. And in the holidays, even that 4-8am shift might get covered.

Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Age III): One of your best library produces double culture and science. Your libraries cost you 2 resource less to build.

I never would have expected to see this name in a board game.  That is awesome.

See, Tables, it does not pay when you try not to be too hard on the beginners. Soon you are on the receiving end of a Raid II.

Yeah, that wasn't pretty. Defence choices were, lose all my military actions and 8 resources, or lose two Scientific Methods. The latter seemed worse. Should be better for the other guys as defence cards will cover me.

I just have to share this game.

Where I feel pretty good about triumphing with a 64-point wonder:
http://www.boardgaming-online.com/index.php?cnt=202&pl=160885&nat=3

Only to have victory snatched from me by crooked politicians.

The more relevant thing is to see green's wonder and then read the journal to see how the points changed.

I shake my tiny fist.

Cool game. Thanks for sharing. Who seeded this event? Tables?

I was getting really terrified. I figured that Kuildeous wasn't going to go for the Sagrada without Politicians in hand. Turns out he took the risk, and boy did he pay the price.

Well, netting 32 culture is still pretty good for any of the wonders. Politicians definitely blunted its teeth a lot.

I'm sure Galzria was just cackling every time I built up that wonder.

32 culture is good, yes, but most of the wonders cost 16 resources, not 64.

That's true; not a very efficient use of resources. That just means the Politicians card is so aptly named.

I discovered to my horror that I'm in only one game now on BGO. I have rectified this by creating 19. Using the Spanish version because they're funky fresh.

Created 20 because I apparently missed out on 19. Gone for Polish because I have no idea what the difference is between the versions but I've played standard a few times now and want something slightly different. 3p.

Do we have enough TtA players here for a mini tournament? Say, 9 person, 3 player games (all base probably), 2 points for a win, 1 point for 2nd, swiss style, say 3 games each? Any interest?

As I had never played TTA before joining f.DStrategy 10, I would like to invite you all to join in the (probably premature) celebrations of me winning my first ever game of TTA. I bet that doesn't happen a lot.

Thank you very much.

No, f.DS 12 and 14 don't count. They come AFTER 10 ;)

I would like to thank my friends and family. Also Tables for supplying my civilization with plentiful resources in the midgame. Jack Rudd provided me with excellent support by triggering an event to slaughter all leaders except Mahatma Gandhi and I am truly grateful for that. I would also like to thank the wonderful discovery of Fast Food Chains that gave me the much needed boost from "playing for second" to "playing to win". Last but not least I would like to thank Kuildeous for destroying his military and along with it any possibility of a last minute comeback for a completely unnecessary territory.

Thank you all. I would not have been able to do this without you.

You are welcome, but I take it you don't rate this as a game. But you are right, when I found myself winning a multiplayer game, I think of all the things that came my way just when I needed them, or events that are triggered just at the right time to hose everyone but me.

I think you will find I addressed the matter of f.DStrategy 14 in the small text of the first of my double post. 10 started before 14, therefore 10 is my first game  ;D

Yeah, that game was just full of awkwardness for me. I built up a decent Shakespeare engine, but I had to lose my opera for some reason. I don't even remember why, but it was probably aggression or terrorism. I was never able to build up my theatre. Although, I also was focusing on keeping my military up since Shakespeare is such a big target. Poor Shakespeare died off without seeing the joys of a fully restored theatre.

And I thought I would be able to draw military cards with that strategic territory so I could at least pick a better Age III event. I guess you don't draw military cards in Age IV, so that lesson is learned. I was already last in military anyway, though I could have scored better in Impact of Competition. I wondered if that was in there when I saw two people building up their arenas, so I built my token Rifleman with my leftover resources.

I was doomed from Age II. I started off great but lost a lot of momentum. It was still a fun game, though. I was struggling as best I could.

Yep, do a Swiss-like, with the person who gets the first bye playing in round 2 against the two highest players (he will have "won" his bye), etc.  "Seed" people in signup order; Watno gets the first bye.

Sounds good. I was thinking the bye would be 1 point instead of 2 (so it counts as a second place), or something, after that byes going to the lowest player who hasn't had one. I guess first bye could be 2 points?

I have to admit I'm not certain how a bye will play out in a 3-hand Swiss tournament.  I mean, if you Google for ideas on doing a Swiss tournament with three-players games, you get wiki and chess links about 2-player Swiss, and on the second page you start getting threads from this forum.

I've had a better idea though. I'm doing too much games stuff already, so I'll drop out, making it a nice 9 player tournament.

Game 1:
mith
Watno
Kirian

Game 2:
Jack Rudd
Kuildeous
Qvist

Game 3:
Jorbles
TINAS
Galzria

Round 1 as above. Ties share/halve points e.g. 1st/2nd tie gives 1.5 points. Each subsequent round, take the current leader (randomly if multiple), match them up with the two highest opponents they have not played yet. Then do the same for the next highest, and the bottom three will be left. If this process gives a game with exactly the same three players, do a thing to fix it so that doesn't happen. 4 rounds. Sound okay to everyone?

I've had a better idea though. I'm doing too much games stuff already, so I'll drop out, making it a nice 9 player tournament.

Game 1:
mith
Watno
Kirian

Game 2:
Jack Rudd
Kuildeous
Qvist

Game 3:
Jorbles
TINAS
Galzria

Round 1 as above. Ties share/halve points e.g. 1st/2nd tie gives 1.5 points. Each subsequent round, take the current leader (randomly if multiple), match them up with the two highest opponents they have not played yet. Then do the same for the next highest, and the bottom three will be left. If this process gives a game with exactly the same three players, do a thing to fix it so that doesn't happen. 4 rounds. Sound okay to everyone?

Are you sure you want to drop out? That would be sad. :(

I've created "f.DStrategy tournament 3".

Used a slightly different password just incase anyone tried to join without realising the matches. Will PM my opponents the password now.

After four rounds, everyone could have played everyone else once. Would that be preferrable to Swiss-style?

One set of triplings might run thus:

Round 1: 1-2-3 4-5-6 7-8-9
Round 2: 1-4-7 2-5-8 3-6-9
Round 3: 1-6-8 2-4-9 3-5-7
Round 4: 1-5-9 2-6-7 3-4-8

If I'm not mistaken, everyone plays everyone else once.

I've been PMing some of the regulars, and Tables had a crazy idea... in short, 4 player TtA (PBF) game where each player creates (pre-game) one leader and one wonder for each of the four ages, which replace leaders/wonders from the base game. Since I've already got three people interested, I can only take one more, so whose up for something involving a little creativity, a little extra craziness, and no guarantee of balance?

Oh, I totally misread it as just picking a leader or wonder. I didn't realize it involved creating those.

But, cool. I'm still up for that.

More seriously:

Otto v. Bismarck (Age II)

Each idle worker evens out the lack of two happy faces. An opponent turning down a pact offered by you loses as many military actions on his next turn as the age of the pact card. You may introduce new government technologies only peacefully.

Background: v. Bismarck was known a) for introducing sth which you 'mericuns would call Obamacare now, along with compulsory pension funds, all to appease the populace "or else they are going to see the socialist mountebank", b) for outlawing socialism and c) for wielding the balance of powers in the oligopoly which was Europe. After he was retired German diplomacy quickly descended into what became WWI.

Oh right it's Swiss. I forgot and thought it was some sort of knockout-ladder tournament. That means 2nd place wasn't a total waste, which is great. The 1 point loss still stings though.

In this setup:
Quote from: ipofanes
Round 1: 1-2-3 4-5-6 7-8-9
Round 2: 1-4-7 2-5-8 3-6-9
Round 3: 1-6-8 2-4-9 3-5-7
Round 4: 1-5-9 2-6-7 3-4-8

Does that make the following numbering system?
Game 1:
1. mith
2. Watno
3. Kirian

Game 2:
4. Jack Rudd
5. Kuildeous
6. Qvist

Game 3:
7. Jorbles
8. TINAS
9. Galzria

(Numbers added by me.)

So my next game would be against mith and Jack Rudd?

Yeah, unfortunately Michelangelo came out at the very start of age I, and Napoleon near the end of age II.

This was not a pretty game.

Edit: oh, at Michelangelo got a lot of the defense cards.  A lot.

Game 1 final scores:

Watno - 195
Kirian - 123
mith - 115

I had a 30 strength advantage over both at one point, and failed to draw any attack during Age III. I'm just proud I broke 100, after not producing any culture the entire game.

I've had military drawing luck like that before. Last weekend, was playing an advanced game with a new player (but one whose very good at learning new games and beating you at them). We had the four impact events - science, agriculture, (urban buildings one) and colonies. He grabbed the Colossus and cartography and used Homer to build lots of Warriors, at which point I told the other guy playing, don't seed any territories, he'll basically win them easily, and he agreed. So the Age A deck went, age I started... and a territory came up right away. Kinda annoying. I columbused for one, and more events went down... more territories came up. And more. I eventually noticed, 5 of the 6 age I territories were in play, and commented on that. "There are only 6 Territories?" the new player asked, "Okay, yeah, I seeded four of those. Guess I did get lucky..."

Of course, this wouldn't have been so bad. Except he then went on to seed another 4 in age II. And bear in mind he only had 2 MA in most of age I and 3 MA in age II, and probably spent about 1 per turn building units. It was obscene :(. He ended up winning by 9 points.

I've generated round 2 for players 3-6-9.  Because we have names I figured I'd just auto-add people, so the game's already started.

He would have but I sniped it for 3 CA (it cost me relative to the third player, but he was DOA after I raided his Dramas).

...Because we have names I figured...

That's all lies, number 3.

I've realized that under no circumstances should I play this game at a table.  The other players would kill me because of my AP.

Yeah, not an AP-friendly game. I saw someone claim that a game should take 90 minutes for 2 players with an extra half hour for each additional  player. I just can't see that, even without AP folks.

Although, table talk can be fun, especially when aggressions happen, though I could do without one guy whining like a bitch when I played Spy on him.

I hate Spy.  >:( Mainly because it's the one Aggression that often seems to hit for more than I make in a turn, thus it often takes multiple turns to recover from.

He still eked out the win.

The real trick is to have players 1+2 grab Alexander and Ceaser, then hit player 3 with a raid and a plunder once each. I think I might do this to the next person who I teach the game to, they'll love it!

I had Ceaser. TINAS actually had Alexander, but didn't get him played. And my aggression was a Plunder, not a Raid. But I had position on him compared to Jorbles, so I knew he only had his first set of cards instead of two, decreasing the chance he could defend.

Round 2, game 3:

Qvist 191
Galzria 136
Kirian 104

Qvist dominated this early; I was, as mentioned earlier in the thread, crushed by an early Plunder from which I never recovered.  Losing 6 resources (because I couldn't finish my wonder before Age II) was a death blow; I'm surprised I was even this close.

Yeah, I cost myself ~45 Culture in the final two rounds, but I wasn't going to catch Qvist. I just started a little to late.

I think I was really lucky this game. I drew especially lucky the right Event cards.
The first game is nearly over now and the outcome really depends on the war outcome, but I think I will be last either way.

What are the Round 3 matches? Those could already start, right?

Round 1, Game 2: Kuildeous just about enough resources to complete his last turn wonder.

Round 2, Game 2: TINAS currently under Attack and sans Science increment. Was one resource short to build Churchill's (air enforced) 2nd Phalanx.

Very entertaining games.

Yeah. In my head I had enough but in my head an airforce cost 5 resources because for some reason I was paying attention to its strength rating rather than resource cost. At least I'm only 1 strength off the pace so I should be okay seeing as it's Holy war. Watno is really keeping the pressure on with the back to back wars. Luckily, most of my culture is coming from wonders so they're pretty safe. Doesn't look like I'm going to get much of a chance to do much else though and with Watno about to enter space it could be a tight finish.

I missthought so much in this game. I wanted to overbid Kuild on Developed II, but missclicked. In the resource war, I missed Air force being in the card row. And then I forgot that Churchill would make Warriors free. Luckily though, Kirian made peace with me, so I still won. YAY!

It hasn't started because we hadn't heard anything from Jack Rudd, presumably because he's still finishing his first game. I'll start it up though.

I've been becoming obsessed with this game recently.  I have had a hard time getting to play IRL due to length and my wife being in school full time, so I've been playing a bunch of games on BGO.  Still pretty new to the game, but I've played maybe 15 or so now.  Hoped right into the BGO Forum league games and got 4th in 3/4 of my 4 player games haha.  I feel like I learn new stuff pretty much every game.  Freaking love this game. 

Feel free to invite "Sigismundo Celine" to any game, if you direct invite you don't even need the pw and I'm in enough games that I'll see it pretty quickly.  I'll try and check in on the thread too though to join you guys.

Global's fun.  I have only played a handful so it is still new too me.  It is fun that each game can be way different  due to the different cards being in/out of the game.
