Trying a variant with lowest score on BAJ. (Unrated)

So far the game is pretty boring, I don't expect it to pick up.

The co-op variant is much more interesting.

I'll post my strategies after I'm done, but it's pretty basic unless I'm missing something. I've only played like 3 turns so far, so there may be some surprises later on.

Why what exactly?

I wanted to play a "co-operative" game. The guy that I played with also suggested a "golf" game, so that's why I'm playing. :)

So far, it's not very fun (ie, not much depth), but I can't pass complete judgment until I actually finish one game.

As for, "why play a variant"? Because I'm finding the game and in particular, 2p Trajan a little boring and predictable. The same things that bug me (1st player advantage, just timing for the +2 forum in the quarters) is getting repetitive.

Co-op added a little depth (but it did take a while because of all the chatting). And like other things (say, poker), playing multiple formats actually strengthens your main game because you understand why you do certain things.

Unless your question is, "Why post your tips?"

Well, I like sharing what I've learned and creating discussion and maybe I'll learn a thing or two.

It's not like I get paid for writing a strategy article or helping opponents improve their game.

But I have a feeling the golf-game is a "simple" game without much depth.
