Played the game three times and am not able to satisfy both victory conditions. Given that you need to average over 3 points per turn, there seems to be no room for any bad card draws.

Are the victory conditions a little ambitious or am I just not that good?

I realize I could just move on, but would like to earn my way if at all possible.

There's another thread with some pointers by the designer, well worth checking out.

I'm now 5 games in and still nowhere near the vp *and* food requirements. I can get close to one or the other but not both. Getting the right cards in hand is fairly vital.

I'm almost a dozen plays into chapter 2, and I will agree that it's a tough one. I managed to pull what I thought was a good combination of buildings, but still ended up 5 VPs short.

I do feel like I'm getting closer, though. Rabbit and Tony Merz do help if you get them in hand, so it's often worth taking the mulligan, and making sure you've got quite a big hand to make that worthwhile.

I'm going to try some other strategies, and also make videos of some of my sessions, just in case anyone is interested in telling me what I'm doing wrong...

Glad it's sounding possible, albeit with a lot of plays (which, to be honest, is good for a solo game). I had Tony Merz come up twice in the market in my game yesterday but never into my hand. Bah!

Here's the video I made: https://youtu.be/XdDmHAXSngI

I managed to complete Chapter 1, but seem to have lost the last bit of my video.

Let me know what you think.

It would be interesting to see, yes. I'm still battling with Chapter 1, of course.

I finally squeezed a chapter 1 win with the exact amount of good and food. nothing left to spare.

Of course now I am stuck on chapter 2, but I got close last time round so I figure Itnis only a matter of time.

Within the realm of color, the shadows often assume responsibility for the awkward shine of yellow.

Two more games.

Can't seem to get both victory conditions.
The best i did was my last try, 48 Food and 25 points.

It's really hard.
