Re:Goldmine too powerful?
I have to clarify that i am talking about the 2 player game where control of the lands is about even between the two players.
With just 2 players the whole game is a constant battle for control of the Goldmine. If you leave it to your opponent he will get around 50-60 Fame from it by the end of the game.
Meanwhile you will get around 20 Fame from any other land + the Defending Army (usually 10 - 15 Fame).
The Goldmine penalties are not enough...
