When you're 4, 5 or 6 players Poland is always a good choice. Nice map, very challenging as we like. There was no objection when we choosed the Poland expansion map.
Mario started in the east with Pierre, Marc in the south and Nathalie in the west. Mario and Marc had nice network and were able to ship many goods with the special bonus income. But then Marc had a hard time because he had no exits to the east and the north. Mario tried to connect the southern cities but Pierre blocked him twice and he was never able to finish his link and he had to give Pierre many points. Each player tried hard all game long to connect 2 bonus cities in their network.
The game was very exciting, you never knew who was the leader and I think the final scoring reflected that point. It was the closest game we ever had with 3 players with perfect tie ! Poland is like a good restaurant, you're never anxious to bring your friend to try it since it's always a safe choice.
