Hi,

We just completed a 2 player game for the first time using the standard map.

It might just be the map, but we were struggling to get enough points to. It anything.

Should it be you receive 1 point per tile you control (this is how we played) or points for every soldier on the tile?

What are your tips to acquire more discoveries or is it not meant to all be purchased?

Cheers.

You definitely have to pick and choose your discoveries - you won't be able to build all of them in one game. You'll have to decide on how to spend your IPs between generals and discoveries.

This keeps it interesting - you won't run through all the discovery strategy in a couple of games.

You can try playing the chimpanzee/engineers if you want to buy lots of discovery, but the other player(s) will target them fairly quickly.

-- You played correctly, by the way, one IP per tile.

Awesome, thanks.

Yes we both bought generals - it was our first play - they just seemed cool.

There just seemed to be so many IP tokens, so just wanted confirmation if we were playing it right. Perhaps there were so many for 4-5 players that threw us off.

Great game though. Very clever. There were a lot of phases and steps initially, but once you get used to the pattern its pretty easy.

I think you answered it - for 4-5 players, you use a larger map with more resource locations, hence the need for more tokens.
