Ouch! What would make this perfect (in terms of angst) would be if you had one upgrade on your flagship. (If so, then you would have (barely) survived and succeeded with just one more success, or if you had put on a second upgrade...) I think there's less than a 1% chance of that result happening.

Regardless, glad you're taking it well, and better luck in your next game!

Next game I returned with 2 ship upgrades, an explorer advisor, and a sea based research card w/complete re-rolls. It took several turns to obtain those, but was well worth it.[o]


One thing that really opened the game for us was:

the colony cards with the very direct goods completion goals. Our group of four was on the 4th game, and ever one said something like ' oh this makes a lot more sense now.[o]


We have been a little frustrated, but all four of us have really been enjoying Seafall and cannot wait to play again.
