So I had been looking forward to getting my grubby little hands on this game since far too long ago and finally, through the very generous help of Jamey Stegmaier, my FLGS was able to grab a copy and sell it to me (yet another helping of huzzah for Jamey). At my lunch hour today, a co-worker and I settled in for a 2 player run through. Like many have said, there is a definite strategy ramp up in the game though not necessarily a learning curve...that being said, it fell a little flat with us strategically...I was worried until I reread the rules again afterwards...here are the three big rules we missed that will make all the difference the next time around (in order of impact):

- Artifact markets can be used to place stars on the Area star OR a market you weren't a builder on

- Tunnel completion actions are available only if you have a recruit of said faction

AND THE WINNER OF MOST IMPORTANT OVER LOOKED RULE FOR A 2 PLAYER GAME...

- For 2-3 players, only TWO of the four construction action spots are required to finish a Market

We ended with a placement tie and had no idea what we did wrong. That last rule cinched it...we were playing with all 4 action spots to complete. Just a heads up for any new players out there...

Looking forward to my next play as soon as humanly possible!
