I would say the best way to play is to not read the strategy discussions here: just play and figure out the game, strategies and counter-strategies naturally.

The only hint I think should be given is that there are no dominating strategies: if you think you've found a strategy (or worse, your opponent has), that always wins, then just think about ways to stop that.

Hi!

Can anybody help me in understanding why in the 2 player variant only the Governor has the 2nd action and not both players ?

Thanks. Carlo

In this way the two players alternate picking roles:

(A is governor)
A, B, A
(B is now governor)
B, A, B
(repeat)

If the rules were different, the same player would always pick twice in a row (A, B... B, A... A, B... etc.).

It also forces different roles to be picked.

played this quite a bit now all the time as 2 player games.

really really like it.

works well with the governor getting the 2 goes as choosing.

still getting used to the best way to play.....ie how many production buildings compared to violet ones.

and which violet ones to use !

like the library and the tower. then ones which assist extra production / trading.
