I am looking for some strategy tips.

I just got his game and I played three rounds with my wife who smoked me.

Is it just luck that she ended up with all the lands with crowns or is there some strategy I am missing?

I have to say though even getting beat, I found this game easy and fun to play. Definitely in my top 10 favorite games.

Maybe you need to pick the tiles with crowns instead of letting her get them?

It's certainly a balance of choosing a specific tile that works well with what you have versus taking one that may not be as valuable to give you first shot at the next set of tiles that will be coming out.

It's a great little filler.

I know a friend of mine prefers to play the epic game when playing with two as all the tiles come out and there's no chance of an uneven tile distribution.

I feel somehow that there is a contradiction in there.

Ha! Before even reading your post and just reading the headline I was going to suggest that you don't play my wife or any other woman as I've heard from other people that their girlfriend/wife creams them without mercy in this game. Now that I've read your post, I'm gonna have to say that's your problem right there!

Yep. I already issued the Epic 7x7 challenge this Friday.

Truth be told - it was our first game and I did offer suggestions on placement. But only on the first round.

No more hints this time.

Her favorite game is still Jaipur. I don't know what it is about that game, but she always wants to play. She also likes Splendor.

Most of the time it gets down to the final round - not many sweeps.

My wife likes Kingdomino but I can't get her to play Carcasonne (still working on that).

But, she will have to as we are playing all the games in our collection, which keeps growing before we even finish the list. devil

My wife has beat me at least 80% of the many games of Kingdomino we played. I am glad to hear it is not just me.
