I am a bit surprised by the number of cards discarded during the first age (and worried about a game that might be shorter than usual). But I guess you also playtested according to the number of turns.
Anyway it looks really great, thank you
Yes, I have now reduced the number of cards discarded for each age. Games will last a bit longer now.
I've tried a couple games with the adjustments, and Attila provides a pretty competitive game and you definitely have to adapt to his decisions. The scores were 179-159 for me (I had good Culture production) and 151-118 for Attila (despite me declaring War over Culture twice at the end of the game).
