By no means an expert on this game, I am interested in comments regarding the strategy to end the game without a bonus. For those of you with more experience: if you are in a situation where you are likely to lose in the "end with bonus" scenario, is it really a viable strategy to try to force the end and win by picking up the most cubes? If so, when would you make this decision and under what circumstances can you pull this off? It would seem to be a difficult strategy because you would need to spend more turns toward the end completing the board then acquiring cubes.

Thanks,

Tim

Re:Alternate strategy
Hi tim,
there have been two reasons to include this rule. One is the point you are discussing. The other is caused by situations where one or both players would be going to loose when they attempt to get there second solar counter. This would kill the game and so we had to have a mechanism to end the game under these circumstances.
Greetings Roland
