#9 Worker placement with a nasty streak. Still challenging, although it could benefit from some expansion buildings. Love the play surrounding the provost.

I actually own an unplayed copy of this.
Perhaps too heavy as the next step?

Story behind this (well, story behind me owning it):

I found a copy of this game on the shelf of a german friend in California, he had received it as a gift from his mom (you know, because that is the kind of thing German moms buy their adult sons as birthday gifts...). It became a bit of a running gag how it was too heavy a game for us to ever get to the table and that he had had this supe rheavy game sat on his shelf for years... and eventually he gave it me as a birthday gift...

Round 3

Round 3 was supposed to be a themed round focusing on Kramer & Kiesling’s designs. However, my table encountered a technical problem because our German copy of The Princes of Florence lacked an English reference sheet, which rendered the text-dependent game rather unplayable. So we had to break the theme and fall back on the trusted classic Caylus instead.

Now, my previous experiences with Caylus were marked by threats and negotiations – and that was just during the rules explanation – so I approach the game with some caution. However, my table played the nicest game possible, with the provost consistently marching in front each round. That also meant that the game ended fairly quickly too.

I was the only player to consistently deliver batches to the castle in the first two phases, while the rest focused more on constructing buildings. However, my monopoly in the castle-building business was interrupted in the third phase when Heng and Teddy decided to muscle their way in. I then made a huge error in the last round, when I chose to joust under the assumption that no-one would deliver their batches early. Heng snapped up the coveted first position at the castle, and squeezed me out from making an optimal delivery. Jeff, observer and resident Caylus expert, later pointed out that Teddy made a mistake similar to mine but with even more severe consequences, as it probably cost Teddy the first placing.

Being ranked second meant that I would stay at Table 1 for the fourth official round which would take place the next day. Caylus is a game I wouldn’t turn down under most circumstances, but in this instance I wish I got to play the relatively rarer Princes of Florence instead.

Endgame scores: Heng (66), Darryl (59), Teddy (58), Ghaz (44)

The other tables also played: Cavum, Coal Baron and Nauticus

Table 3 played the limited edition of Caylus which had pretty artwork but a rather busy-looking board.

Jan 17 - game 2

Kent 90ish
Kat, Lydia, Brian D 55-70 range
Brian R 40ish

First turn, the first building to be built is the one that allows you to build stone buildings. Turn two was obvious others wanted to push provost forward, so I take that action. New buildings built are double food and double cloth, so I build 2stone and cloth. I have a steady income of 1 stone or cloth the rest of the game. Turn three provost was going forward again, stage one was ending and if I went in the castle I wasn't getting favors, so I took the penalty for no castle building and just collected resources/set up for stage 2.

In stage 2 I had two goals: build green buildings to replace start buildings (first the stone production so my building was the only good source of stone) and build in the castle. The turn I went for castle building, two players followed, so I had to scrambled for more resources and build three in one shot...so that was my only time building in stage two. But I did get two green buildings (and a third in stage three), and shifted to getting the kings favor space. All my kings favors went to the point track (except when I got two at once, I also got money).

Stage three I focus on favors and resources for the castle. The provost was going forward almost every turn, so there wasn't a lot of time for other players to set up for blue buildings. I think two players had gotten a blue building by the end. So, my favor points, building in the castle, and buying points with the stone building put me too far ahead for anyone to catch.

Caylus was played by Adam, Andrew B2, Daniel and Roy - and new to everybody except Daniel.

With the exception of Daniel I think we all made a number of tactical mistakes and I think I would have to classify it as a learning game - however, I really enjoyed it and I can't believe I haven't played it before.

from me!

Wow, how have I not played this game yet? I loved it... it has a lot of timing elements which I particularly enjoy, and a lot of viable paths. I thought I was out of it as everyone was scoring and building the different types of buildings, and I was mainly doing the castle sub-optimally early. I stuck with that path, and was able to make 2 huge moves, each of them ended up being 33% of my final score. Sometimes I enjoy games from win-bias, but I was enjoying it even when I felt I was losing bad.
