Hi guys,

I just got 203 vp in a GaiaProject-Game against the automa-bot and Im so exited about it that I got to share it with you.

Bevor that game I never got more than about 160 vps (and mostly Im more about getting 140vps) so I had an absolut blast in the last 3 rounds of the game.
In that game many things went very good for me from beguinnig on. My opponent was the automa-bot playing terrans. Well he was only normal difficulty and did score 105vp in the end, maybe that helped a bit too whistlemodest (I promise from now on I play him at least one difficulty harder. :laugh ) He did expand like crazy but was not giving me much of a fight about the power/qic-actions wich did help for sure.

I took the ambas and started with an academy and a techtile from the 4 quic-action. In the second round I got my first alliance with only two buildings (with the help of that techtile that gives your mainbuildings a 4-power-value cool)
My first research was some steps in orange, later I got terraforming and in the last round I made many steps in navigation and the green tree.
With the cool ambas-abbility I was able to form 4 alliances (+1 bonusalliance-marker from terraforming). In the fourth round I got the specialtech that gives vps for alliances so that did really pay of.
What also really went well I took three of the basictechs that gives you knowledge for having different planettypes. I never thought those were good before that game, but in this game they were really awesome.

I learned a lot from that game and Im really looking forward to play against realplayers/humans the next time.
And maybe one day I have enough time to play in the forum with you guys. (for sure I will).

Greetings to all of you, Gaia Project is awesome!

Awesome for you! Congrats!

I played a 4p game with Bal Taks a while ago. I played great and won comfortably but was the only heartbroken player at game end when I got 199 points

One day...

Congrats with your 200 VP threshold, I haven't reach that many points yet. However, I don't want to be a party pooper, but I think you can only get each basic tech tile only once. Also, the special tech tile that gives VP for confederations triggers at the moment you create them, not for the ones you created before in the game. Did you hold off on your confederations to make them all at the last round?

I'm writing this mostly to be sure I'm playing these rules correctly, so if someone could validate what I say is correct that would be nice.

I'm sorry, I checked the rules and you played it correctly. When you pass, gains 3 VP for each confederation tokens you own.

I checked for the tech tiles though and it specifies that no faction can own more then 1 of each tech tiles, even if covered with a special tech tiles.

Yes, you only can have each tech tile once, so that’s an error op made.
He took the advanced tile +5VP/Fed which is one time instant VP for what you have at that moment.

The advanced tile obviouly sais that you get +3VP for every Fed whenever you pass your turn, so im not exactly sure what you are talking about here, to be honest.

What do you mean by

You mean that you took the techtile where you gain 4 power as an action?
Or you got a techtile with using the 4 QIB action? In this case, how did you manage to gain 4 QIB's in the first round?

Thx for the info.

PS: BTW, nice play!!

Ok, didn’t read good enough
There are 2 Advance Techs which reward Federations
One is PassVP: 3/Fed and one is +5VP/Fed
You didn’t specify exactly which one you took

Hi,

the first qic comes with the setup. the second one comes with the ambas ability to start +1 in navigationtrack. the third one i took from a basic tech tile, when I made my techlab. The fourth i got from the action beneath the academy.
I could even had a fifth and sixth qic if I went for a step in the green techtree and If i did spend 4 power for one.

I hope that did help?!

Btw: Note that this was only possible because the ambas came with an adittional ore-baseincome so I didnt have to convert a qic into an ore to upgrade into an academy.

That's indeed an economically demanding start, especially as yonek wrote that he started advancing in economy (instead of Terraforming, Navigation or A.I., which would grant extra instant QICs or Ore).


My guess would be that the 1QIC+1Ore basic technology tile played a vital role, possibly also the 1QIC+2Coins Booster or the QIC Academy.

1 Academy from the scratch needs 11 Ore and 14 Credits, the 4QIC Actions obviously 4 QIC.
With 8 starting Ore as Ambas there's 3 Ore missing, starting credits are sufficient, with 2 starting QICs 2 more are missing for the action. 3 Ore could ideally be the abovementioned tech tile and the 2 Ore power action, the 2 additional QICs could be the tech tile and either Booster or QIC academy action.

All righty, I have been playing it wrong then. I thought all buildings should be built starting from the left.

I just reread the rules and indeed only TS and RL should be built from left to right. For other buildings you can choose...

Thx for the clarification.

Only Academies can be build in any order (you can see that they are parted on the board)
Mines need also to build from left to right
