Only 1 score apart. Played in more or less 45 minutes. Me as Engineers & AI as Giants. I didn't use Engineers' ability to build bridges much except for the planned third town which I didn't have the resource to do so. Giants had it easy by building their Stronghold and unlock special action with 2 spades and I need to compete with them to expand my territory. Luckily the cost of all structures are cheaper for Engineers though gaining workers & coins are harder for Engineers. This game doesn't see much racing on the cult tracks. I found town & build temples to get more tiles on gaining coins & advancement on cult tracks. Built my Stronghold in first round too though it doesn't give much benefit throughout the game except for leeching powers from Giants' structures. Found my town in 4th & 5th round. Advancing my shipping skill in 5th round 2 times to ensure all my structures are indirectly adjacent. This is the game where I passed earlier in most rounds. Engineers 101 vs Giants 100.
