We had a great 4-player game of Nations this afternoon. Packy was the Chinese, Keith the Romans, Brady took the Egyptians, and I played Greece. This turned out to be one of the closest, most back and forth games ever. I took a gamble in the Industrial Age letting my Stability slip to -1 which ended up costing me 2 vp in the last 2 rounds. Keith and his Romans built at least 5 Wonders including the Sphinx which meant he was never short of Stone. Final scoring:

Keith 44
Brady 43
Me. 42
Packy 38

Brady missed a tie by ONE resource as his total was 129 and he would have won the tiebreaker. The game took a little over 3 hours but it never seemed to go slow. We used all of the cards including promos. This game just gets better each time we have played.

Only your Chinese are far behind ...
Had same situation last time we played, so I guess China is less obvious to play (?)

Edit : actually 2 plays with China in my group (by experienced players), 2 severe defeats

Packy actually got to pick his Nation first and he took the Chinese thinking the extra worker would be a huge boost.

We had a guy in our group play the Chinese a few weeks ago and he scored 49 points and dusted us. Of course it didn't hurt that he got The Sphinx in Round 1 and we were foolish enough to let him build several wonders. He also snatched Abe Lincoln at the start of Age 4shake

Each time China is in play in our game group, the chinese player have struggled. It seems that the resources China starts with are just too few. Previous game had 3 famine event very first turn and some war. China fell so much behind and finally lost over 10 points to Rome. Only one food is very little food to survive high famine in the beginning.
