I've just added up the scores so far. Everyone has done pretty well, honestly. There's still a little more to happen, though.

I was way overthinking this last turn

'But if Voltgloss burys and activates Diplomacy...hyram could build some military...but Voltgloss may take the science"


But then I realized that Voltgloss and hyram have already settled that last turn and I totally forgot.

So, DONE!

Gotta ask Arche -- in Age II, why did you build red, then your Diplomacy wonder, then a second red?

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

Congratulations to Volt on the win! Thanks to his impressive science sets he managed to get a rather dominating position by the endgame - three science sets tends to have that effect. I think everyone did pretty well overall, but Volt just did better. And only one card discarded for coins and in the final round, that's pretty surprising.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApPT0N9WtHcKdFVuR3B5S1NyLUpjSHFka1U5Q3UzMEE#gid=6 is the game sheet. I don't think there's anything really interesting in there that you couldn't have mostly worked out anyway, but there you go.

Good game and congratulations to Voltgloss.

I think that my biggest mistake was undervaluing the resources produced by the grey cards.  I didn't realize just how many late age cards require them.

hyram, in your position, I would have taken Manneken Pis A once it my and Arch's Wonders were revealed.

Two reasons:

- the extra shield from the B side is less useful in a game where at least one, and maybe both, of your opponents will have guaranteed access to Diplomacy.

- When facing the Great Wall, Manneken Pis A gets to choose which of the Wall's wonder stages it can copy.  That flexibility can be of terrific help.

In other news, I was lucky to see two Mask cards in the mix (even if I didn't get one) in a game where I was planning a Science-heavy strategy.  The Magistrates Guild was also an obviously lucky boon for me, although I didn't ultimately need it. 

I think it's also important not to overlook the importance of having access to at least three of each raw material (wood, stone, ore, brick) going into the third age.  By "access" I mean "could build a card requiring three of something, even with buying from opponents."  Many Guilds require that, as do some regular cards.  Not having access to three Wood stopped hyram from building the Shipowners Guild - and my having that access (through the Caravansery) let me build the Magistrates Guild.  I toyed with the notion of forgoing the Caravansery and taking the risk of not being able to build those cards - glad in the end that I didn't.

Arch, what Leaders did you have available during the draft?  Hatsepshut/Berenice is definitely a strong combo, but what you needed in the end there was some high-VP Leader card instead of Hammurabi.

Also, if neither of you guys had built the Press in Age II, I absolutely would have buried it to stop one of you from building your wonder.  Setting myself up for that is why I buried the Press in Age I.  ;D

Gotta ask Arche -- in Age II, why did you build red, then your Diplomacy wonder, then a second red?
I really terrible mistake. I thought Diplomacy prevented me from receiving defeat tokens, not taking me out of the battle altogether. Luckily Tables corrected me, so I was able to adjust my strategy.  But it was a little too late.

Arch, what Leaders did you have available during the draft?  Hatsepshut/Berenice is definitely a strong combo, but what you needed in the end there was some high-VP Leader card instead of Hammurabi.
Yeah, I considered taking one of those 5$ Leaders at one point over Hammurabi (or was it Xenophon? I forget) but I didn't think I'd have enough coins. Turns out I had too many! Really underestimated the power of those two leaders.

But good game to both of you! Voltgloss really nailed it on those Science, which really helped.
