Hello, this afternoon, We played our first game, and these are our impressions (only basic, without expansions):
-The game it´s very repetitive, maybe we are doing something wrong. Each turn all players made the same actions , hire workers and shipping to get one or 2 cards.
-We believe (rules don´t said anything) that you can´t repeat the same action in the same turn. (i would like to know if this is true)
-You haven´t enought time to do more than one or two exhibitions, them the game ends for the year track, until the last 3 turns, only 2 players could make an exhibition.
-Only in the last two turns, whe used the sell action, and never could use the buy action.
-The last turn, all of us, only could do an action, and you lose the other, because you must paid for doing something, that dont´give points (maybe with expansions this change).
-I believe this game would be better with three aditional turns, but for now, the time runs out very quick when you are starting to make your tactics.
I like the thematic of the game, but i believe you use only 6 or 7 cards on each deck, and the time ends, when i saw, that the game ends when a deck ends, i believe that we could use more cards.
Sorry for my poor english, only would like to know if we are doing something wrong.
One thing I noticed is that it does not pay for you to place 2 workers and then ship right away. Better to wait a round or 2, place more workers, and ship more than 1-2 artifacts at a time. Shipping is expensive, especially when everyone is doing it!
Waiting (and also waiting until late in a round when it becomes cheaper) is much more efficient, and you will produce quite a few more exhibitions!
You can take any actions that you have action markers for (and enough money).
TIMING is everything in this game.
