Looking at the other thread on Highest Score I thought we should have one on your lowest score.

My scores so far are:

1) 4 player : 56
2) 4 Player : 90
3) 4 Player (Short Game) : 6!

Anyone managed a negative score yet?

Still not sure what wrong in the last game, having 60 negative points didn't help!

Our first game was 8 to 15 in short mode, embarrassingly. We got better.

Last night, I lost 54-28 in our first game (short game) to my wife. Definitely have room to improve.

1st game, short 6-turn, solo.

45 points

12 in sheep
9 in whaling ships
6 in occupations
18 in final income

It was a hard slog up that hill.

One of my friends scored just 9 in his first game. He forgot to cover up his -1s on his board and he explored an island way too late in the game to claw back the negative points.

I don't recall my lowest, but in the first game I played (first game for all four players) the losing player had -4.

Proud of my 38 in solo play. I tried to adventure too much.

I like elephants. I like how they swing through trees.

1st solo game: 80
2nd: 21

I'm supposed to get better!


A number of factors to that. Much better synergy in my first game between what I was doing and some occupations I had. Also, I got super lucky with a few whaling/raiding rolls, and conversely unlucky in the second game. I also farted around much of the second game and didn't have enough focus. I'm two rounds in on game three and can already tell I'm doing better than last time (and hopefully better than the first time).

EDIT:
Game three was better.
Emigration: 21
Ships: 11
Sheep: 9
Occupations: 13
Money: 33
Total: 87

I decided not to go for any islands or other buildings. So no risk of negatives (though I just barely covered my home board). If I had planned slightly better, I could have emigrated another ship and probably netted another 8-9 points.

Glad to see at least one person has scored less than me then!

In my first (2p) game: 72 (won vs 71)
My 2nd game (4p): 89, I lost... the winner (a firsttime player) focused on emigration and got 97~99 points

My first solo today (short mode): 26 points blush, exploring the possibilities. I'm very happy with this game, maybe my best investment in a boardgame.

45 first short
46 first normal
But I sort of recall I placed two greens together. Not sure if I applied the penalty. I think so. I probably forgot many times to get an occ, so sorta evens out.

All,

Reading this thread makes me feel much better. My wife and I just started a 2 player game of this and got halfway done (we have a table we usually use for games so we can leave it set up).

Anyway, we both seem to be doing really bad and have not covered ANY -1 spots yet on either of our boards. I am hoping when we go back it ramps up and we cover a bunch.

Is that usually the case? I think we probably should have done the long game as well.

Thx

You're actually doing fine for a first game. I usually don't get to covering the -1 slots until about halfway through. And then just polishing off the board on the last turn.

I finished my 3rd game Sat. At the beginning of turn 6, I had covered maybe 6-10 home board spaces. By the end of 6, All home board spaces covered. The game really ramps up at the end.

Played 2 player on Sunday (long game) and scored 59

Tried solo earlier tonight (short game) and scored exactly 0.

Had just as much fun both times.

We finished our first game (short) game between my wife and I.

She scored 52 and I think I had 45 or 46. We just started another game, pretty fun.

Thx

In my first (short) solo play I managed to get 25 points.
In my seconds I reached -30!

The short game is very hard to score points, my first game was short too and I scored 26 points. Then all of games I played were long version and I scored in the 100 range and in the 70 range one time. The last round in the long game usually you get a lot of points to balance the negative points and also get net points.

My lowest so far is 49, which is in a 2-player game. I did watch a ton of teaching videos before I ever sat down to play, though, so I already had a pretty good idea of what to do.
