Oh, Tables, you neglected to deduct the regular $2 cost of Capitol from my total.  I pay $3, $1 to Bilkis and $2 to the bank.  So if I've got this all correct, I should be at $9 now.

Edit: Oh wait, lio paid me.  Never mind.

Well, I generally do that, but it's less of a problem in 7-player as there is mostly one other player contesting it.

Science with no contest is indeed very strong, but once I got to AIII, I could continuously build 6+VP cards myself so I didn't have time for a detour anymore.

I also played this game on semi-auto-pilot due to real life time constraints (read: work and family), but it was fun.

I honestly thought that Davio would also play for Science.  China is a good wonder for it -- cloth start is excellent, the mask wonder helps in competition, and the black market and money wonders support a low-resource chain-heavy strategy.  Davio also had the opportunity for a good science leader (Ptolemy or Archimedes) and I really thought he would take it.  I mean, I passed two Science leaders to him so would he really have figured that there was a third good Science card in that hand that I took?  In his spot, I would have taken that as an indication that Ephesos was disinclined to pursue Science, giving China free reign.

If you read my QT thoughts for Age I hands, I continually worried about Davio scooping science cards.  There was one point where Davio could have disrupted my strategy by burying Glassworks to build his BM wonder.  By doing that, he would have been the only one to have access to Glass.  He could then have built Workshop at his leisure.  He could also have had Apothecary if he wanted it, because I passed on it on my first hand in favour of the Timber Yard.

After playing through this game, I am fairly certain that you just HAVE to have some plan to deal with science.  If the other two players are competing for science, then you can leave them at it.  If only one player is going for science, I think you have to consider taking a set yourself if you can swing it, or else commit to always burying science whenever you build a wonder stage.  A single science set is actually quite nice if you build it early, and it hurts the science player more if you take away their chaining opportunities.

I expected Davio to go Science, which is why I took Justinian.  If Davio was also taking science, my goal would be to just build a single science set and then get some red and blue to leverage Justinian to 9VP.

You miscounted the military a bit.  I should get two +5 and one -1, Davio should get two -1.  Puts me at 98, Davio at 63.

Here's my QT:

You're right. I forgot to resolve your battle with Davio.

There was one point where Davio could have disrupted my strategy by burying Glassworks to build his BM wonder.  By doing that, he would have been the only one to have access to Glass.  He could then have built Workshop at his leisure.

This is exactly what I did with Great Wall B in 7WV, except with the Press instead of Glassworks.

It was high enough that I needed to manually work it out instead of just looking and going, "Oh, X/Y/Z science is worth W points", which I can do up to about 3 complete sets nowadays :P (yes people IRL are starting to resent me during scoring when I ask for science, look at people's sets and instantly tell them their scores).

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApPT0N9WtHcKdFVKMUtYWkwyOWFKYUhiMFZPZmY0MWc&usp=drive_web#gid=11 is the game's sheet. As usual with 7 Wonders games... there's not really much of interest there. But I guess you can see how wonders were built and stuff.

Well, Science would have been pretty good for me in hindsight, but I just wasn't focused enough for this game.
