Ben's first play. He went heavily into animals while I bought the Loading Station and went forest crazy with the Farmer's Inn and Turnery.

A super-tight result with all three of us scoring within 5 points of each other. David won, playing a majorities strategy and cranking up the multiplier to the top. He only had two buildings, which were never in play.

If Ben had won the start player tie-breaker, he and David would have switched positions.

Ben won, playing a mixed strategy. David went heavily into building, relying on the start player and kickbacks. The last three rounds used the same part of the board.

In both games, the final start player tie-breaker (clockwise from the current start player) decided the game. In this case, David would have tied Ben.

A disappointing five-player first slog through Viticulture. David won, capping out at 25. The whim of the card draw for vines and contracts seems cruel and a poor fit for a game of this length. Adding some ability to choose or swap out cards seems like a good house rule (after one play).
