Well, having just finished PBF 16 minutes ago, I figured it was high time for another one. This time, though, I'd like to try 4 players.

If you'd like to play, note that I will ask you to use the "mini-board" format for each of your moves, so that a move will look like:

Activate Trade Office - draw N.America 1 (+2 industry) and N. America 2 (+3 finance).

Industry - 10 (5 tokens)
Culture - 8 (4 tokens)
Finance - 8 (2 tokens)
Politics - 7 (3 tokens)

Pop in Harbor: 4
Occupy/Draw Token

C. House [ ]; Workshop; Guild Hall [ ]; Fortress [ ]; Docks [ ]; Theatre; Cartographer [X]; Trade Office [X]

Cards: Med1 (CCP), Slave2 (FFI), NAMericaGov(PPFX), NAmer1(II), NAmer2 (FFF).


and a build would look like:
Build docks.

Industry - 5 (2 tokens)
Culture - 2 (0 tokens)
Finance - 4 (2 tokens)
Politics - 2 (0 tokens)

Grow 3 and pay all (2).
Pop in Harbor: 5

C. House [ ]; Workshop; Guild Hall [ ]; Fortress [ ]; Docks [ ]

Cards: Med1 (CCP), Slave2 (FFI)



However, in addition to my spot, one other has already been claimed, leaving only two spots! Act now! (If you sign up, please also choose a colour from purple, orange, and blue).

Thanks!

Re: PBF 18: 4-player mania!
I'd be keen and I'll play purple.

However I don't get back to NZ for a day and a half so won't really be able to make any moves till then. So if you want to wait for me then cool, if not then I will let someone else play.

Re: PBF 18: 4-player mania!
With PBF 15 just coming to an end, I'd love to jump into another one. I'm pretty terrible at Endeavor but enjoy it immensely nonetheless. Cheers and thanks for hosting Geoff!

Edit: Jarratt took Purple so I will settle for orange.

Re: PBF 18: 4-player mania!
Alright, excellent. No problem, Jarratt, I don't mind waiting. Our fourth is Michael Chapman, who I put down for red.

Our randomly-determined player order is:

Michael
Chris
Jarratt
Geoff

The board will be up in a little bit (once I randomly draw all those little tokens).

Our initial setup (which is, err, quite interesting...):



And we begin with Michael's build.

Indeed, but also, could you use an orange that's a bit different than Michael's red? They look almost the same to me

They looked the same to me too--I'll try to find one that's different enough but also not so pale that it's invisible.

How's this one?

Much better, and thanks I fixed my Industry..

This is an interesting starting board. Will have to see how it works out.

You know, when I was thinking about what to build, the one thing I thought for sure that you wouldn't build, Jarratt, would be a Market

Indeed, Michael, you should have a workshop up there rather than a shipyard. Perhaps you're getting this game confused with PBF 19?

I'm playing in PBF 19, and I also went for the market start. I shall watch in eager anticipation to see how the master does it with such a crazy board

Use Market, Draw Med0, +1 Culture, +1 Finance

Harbour: 3

Industry - 0 (0 tokens)
Culture - 1 (0 tokens)
Finance - 1 (0 tokens)
Politics - 0 (0 tokens)

C. House [ ]; Market [X];

Cards: Med0[CF]


You know I really wasn't going to build a Market. Workshop looked so much better. I am in a really awesome position for that too. But I also kind of think that the opening is pretty unimportant and that it matters more the selection you build and how you use it than what you build. Market works best from third and better in 4 player. Whether it will work here or not I'm not sure. But why not try?

Especially if using a Market gains you a population in your harbour

Seriously, though, I'm definitely interested to see how it goes.
