I'm intentionally posting this under the base game, to reduce bias.

Read "prestige is fine" as "prestige is not overpowered".

I am still under 100 plays. I don't care much for BoW because I find it very clunky and tedious compared to the earlier expansions. I constantly feel the need to refer to the manual to make sure I am doing everything right and not missing anything.

Time will likely lessen this feeling, but that doesn't do much to change my current feelings. As a result, I generally leave it out and play only with the first 2 expansions.

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

It's not that Prestige is overpowered, it's that it's overwrought.

It's meant as black and white "prestige is overpowered" vs "prestige is not overpowered". Was just saving wordage.

Your opinion above would be "prestige is fine".

I didn't bother with a PGA-related poll since it's inarguably overpowered, though i suppose i could add one asking if its strength bothers you.

Not sure why the BoW plays poll is getting less responses than the all plays post. The BoW plays is the more interesting imo. If those who dislike BoW or think prestige is overpowered don't tell us how many plays they have, it'll be hard to find patterns.

I've inserted a poll about PGA and rearranged the order of the first 2 polls.

Hehe yeah, initially i envisioned a single-choice poll, but realized that would be impossible for most of us. I picked 2. Looking at them, i actually love almost all of the BoW cards. They have great flavor/diversity, very few duds.

Man, am I the only one who isn't a huge fan of Terraforming Engineers? Perhaps I need to play it a few more times.

Not sure if I should count my Keldon AI plays, but even with that ques. out of the way, I've got others to work around.

If nothing else, the discount and other powers come in handy

Serge, when you say "PGA is overpowered," do you feel that is as true in multiplayer as in 2PA? Its goodness in 2PA is hard to argue with, but in 3P+ it is tempered a bit by the inability to double develop.

Yes, count AI plays. Otherwise the 2001+ category would fit 5 people in the whole world. :P

That's what i would expect, but judging by the animated graph by game size, i'm not sure that's the case? The 5-6 player data is probably worth discarding, i'm guessing there are very few plays making the data highly variable.

I think it's the combine use of PGA and Federation Capital who is overpowered. A dev-spam player can easily score 50+ points from prestige with those two cards, since it add 6 to 8 points for each new 6 devs. PGA is definitely strong when used alone, but I would not say it's overpowered.

Please note I may have a bias here since I usually play 3P or 4P draft (with takeover but without goals). whistle

I think 2PA Brink +goals players skew a lot of the thinking.

I overwhelmingly play that format, and PGA is dominant. Before that, I think it was hard to argue against Galactic Developers being at the very best 'a problem' too.

However, as soon as I go back to 3P or 4P, the game seems completely fine.
