Played with my wife (played several times) and father in law (Pops, new to the game).

As usual, Pops didn't need much practice to be effective at a game. He struck a nice balance early in the game but spent a bit too much on mediocre buildsing. The wife played masterfully, picking up very good diplomats and upgrade builings early and smoothly building her lead.

I tried to get a cash rush from good diplomats, but fell too far behind in terms of money per round and early VP from buildings. This was the first time I've seen a "no way to catch the leader" effect; wife was earning more than either of us and was basically unstoppable. I closed the gap a tiny bit at the end by distinct diplomats, but it wasn't nearly enough. I saved a little dignity and beat the guy who'd never played before, but that was about it.
