Creating a lot of cheap works seems like a strong strategy so far. Because players score for completed works without worrying about cover, and only need five on one side to end the game, and paper works don't need other cards in the craft bench or in hand to be completed, a rush to end the game has proven effective in every game I've played so far.

Thoughts? Is a paper rush over powered?

It's never seemed like a viable strategy in all the games I've played?

A sale or two usually quashes the paper rush, because of potential backorders.

Paper rush can be an option, but it's a bit like Catacombs in Glory To Rome. You want to be very sure you're going to win before adopting it as a strategy.

I've played it a couple of times and always finished a point or two behind.

Building cheap Works fast can be a winning strategy obviously, but like others have said it's hard to make a lot of points doing it. And it's totally contingent on having cheap Works to complete. I used to play against my wife that way until she caught on and countered it with a mere covered sale or two along with backorders. It soon backfired on me.
