Thank you Uwe for this awesome game.
My copy arrived yesterday in the Philippines.
We have Agricola, Caverna, Le Havre, Ora et Labora,
Gates of Loyang, & Fields of Arle.

My wife's favorite is Ora et Labora.
Mine is Caverna.
We played a 4 player game last night.
We never touched the exploration boards though because
we got scared of negative points.
This is our new favorite game.
Lots of depth, meaningful choices, lots of fun.

The good news is that you have a lot to look forward to. The different occupations change each game, and the learning experience is really fun.

This is a game where we started and scored very low. Filling your home board is hard! Then we played again, and filled it, and scored much higher...and it goes up from there. You can literally see yourself getting better.

Make sure you have a large table....the game does fill out over the area.

I totally agree! This is one of the few games I just want to play again and again! I've had the game for a week, and will play it for the 5th time tonight. I usually never get to play such a big game that many times in such a small amount of time! Have fun exploring and getting better

If just one of you had taken an extra Exploration board, and really focused on getting the extra goods, there is a good chance that person might have won the game. You'd be surprised how good those extra boards are.

I've seen a lot of posts by first time players saying that no one took extra boards in their first play. My opinion is that the game is at its best when you are taking some risks and acquiring those boards.

Just my 2 cents, but I'm 16 plays in and sometimes take three exploration boards when playing...

I lost my first game BECAUSE I took an exploration board and ended up with like -30 points from it. I've never beaten my girlfriend at the game, though, exploration boards or not.
