So, here we are, completed the campaign for the first time. I had great fun. Total score 17.

In summary:
- I had to get used to both the old and new board to play it effeciently
- Adding expansions to the base game indeed seems to make it easier to beat Automa (since the Automa target stays at 20 vs 25)
- I have unlocked the expansions per the order in the rulebook
- I found that mostly I had at least recruited 1, but most times 2 extra workers and had build the grande cellar by the end of the game. The latter really kicks in with the right wine-order cards during the last year. Also with a limited number of expansions I had typically at least 2 fields planted so you can harvest enough grapes for the final two years.
- I personally think all Tier 1 and Tier 2 expansions are great, especially the new board. I'm personally not too much into the Structures and Tier 3 ones (too many paths to victory and less options to block others), but they are good for the replayability and a change sometimes.

The games and scores:
L1 - 18
L1 - 23
L2 - 19
L2 - 26
L3 - 21
L4 - 26
L5 - 25
L6 - 20
L6 - 26
L6 - 28
L6 - 19
L6 - 32
L7 - 30
L7 - 34
L8 - 32
L9A - 37
L9F - 34
