My wife and I just played our first two player game tonight and the final score was 114-113. I thought I was losing but apparently not! What are others close games and is it common to be this close?

The closest game I ever played resulted in a score of 98, 99 (me), and 100.

Small World lends itself to close games because most of the scoring among decent players ends up being ~10-12 points a game. I've been involved in plenty of four-player games where the distance between first to fourth has been less than five points. Almost always there's either a tie for first or second when everyone is being vigilant about who's actually in the lead and not just the perceived lead.

Runaway winning usually occurs only in two player games, when one player gets lucky enough to pick a premium race combination and manages to wipe the opponent completly.

My other games have been pretty balanced.

5 player game with me and 4 newbs:

63, 66, 66, 67, 67.

I was one of the ones who had 67, and yet I didn't win the tiebreaker. We actually had to look it up

Very weak scores I think... we use to finish around 80 in 5 players games. What are you doing? Butchering everybody? :laugh:

Last two-player game I played was 77-75. The scores were pretty low as we kept on focusing on crushing each other rather than taking the cheaper empty spots or defeating the lost tribes.

My two player game today ended up 119 vs. 120. Each of us thought the other was winning. One of us was wrong.
