Hello,

Having played over 10 times now, I see a paturn in which the player starting in 4th position is greatly disadvantaged on most maps. Do you see the same thing in your games ? Any house rule to prevent that ?
I was thinking of giving the 4th player 1 in research at the start of the game.

Any comments ?

I've played several 4-player games including the Gordian Knot and the Barren Empire maps. I've never seen anyone disadvantaged because the staring worlds are far apart. It would probably be the same on the Event Horizon map as well. It all comes down to aggressiveness, sneakiness, great card combos, and paying attention to the leader and ganging up on her/him.

I actually like going last so I can start by placing a cube on a planet noone is aiming for. I only played the basic 4-player map though.
