I was reading another post in this strategy section about favorite races and I found that 4 people voted for humans and 0 voted for wizards. Do people hate wizards or are humans better? I have always thought of them to be equal except for where they get their bonuses. The strange thing is that I recall playing humans much more than playing wizards. Could the game boards be laid out better for humans than wizards, or is it just a coincidence?

Well, the four and five player maps each have a pair of adjacent farms....none of the maps have adjacent magic sources.

Then again, I wouldn't place much stock in the tail end of any "what X is best?" single vote poll.

For Humans and Wizards (both +1 for specific regions racial abilities), I invariably determine their viability by their secondary trait and current board position.

Neither is an immediate 'go to' race.

Probably cause it's easier to get multiple farmlands than it is magic sources; which are usually more spread apart.

Purely subjective:
farms earning VP makes sense
With magic sources you expect something a bit more magical...
so theme is not so present with wizards
