I am pretty new to Agricola but really digging this game. Starting my secon solo series and here are the occupations out in play. Which one do you keep to leave in play for the next game in the series and why?

Wheedler take one addl food when you use an action to take food

Tutor one pt for each occ played after this one

Clay mixer (i think) whenever you take stone or clay. Take one extra clay

Well maker. Well is minor imp and only costs 1 wood and 1 stone

Opinions?

Guy

Tutor.

It only increases your victory point total as you advance in the solo series

Tutor was my initial inclination also, but doesnt that turn into diminishing returns as you leave more occ in play after each solo series game?

Your starting occupations are played in order of the previous games, so Tutor for #1 will be very good.

So even in the fourth game of the series if i have in play already tutor and three other occs from previous series games, that would atill give me 3 vp at game end?

Yes.


Yes Tutor should turn into 6 points later in the series, but only if you keep it first.
Some iof the best cards to keep in solo series are those giving extra points as it increases the ceiling of points you can score in a game.

TUTOR: 6pts later on.
To achieve a maximum result in the end, save Occs that give you points, wood, or resources in exchange for food (Pieceworker)
