I've been playing Spline a fair bit recently on Jocly, both against the AI and against my son (passing the iPhone back and forth between us). I've noticed that the second player wins much more than the first in my experience. Has anyone else noticed that?
Yes, you're right. Spline was not intended to be a balanced game, but the simplest (and playable) possible Shibumi game.
As you point out, the pie rule doesn't help.
I think the best fix is probably moving to play Spline+!
You're right again. Spline+ is the real game while Spline is just an introduction to Shibumi.
