My wife and I played our second game of Innovation today and my wife destroyed me using calendar and currency in a combo every turn and I couldn't do anything about it (with my very limited experience)!
She would draw two age 3 (or age 4-5) cards with calendar and score them with currency. She racked up 7-9 points by turn and she ran away with the victory 6-2.
I was trying to force her to discard or bury those two cards but nothing was working for me!
Our first game was a lot more fun and very swingy! I look foward to a rematch but I was kinda frustrated today (I rarely get frustrated playing games, it's all about fun...normally).
