We haven't played this for a while. Our first choice was whether to play with the "last profession remains unbought but is flipped over and may be recruited" rule with which we play five player (essential). In four player it doesn't seem to be quite as necessary, since, between the extra professions you can buy and the Recruiting cards, buying a profession every chance you get is not such a no-brainer. And, even though we played with this rule, the professions weren't bought out immediately.

Still, David collected lots of professions and recruiters. I found the game just as hard as the five player version. Even though "better" stuff was more generally available during the auction, I always wanted more things. I couldn't even see how I was going to do any of it, until I acquired a late game Jester. Meanwhile, Binyamin on his very first time playing had already figured out what he was going to to by turn three or four, did it, and won. Nadine ended up with the most builders, but somehow didn't build that many buildings. She did steal the forest that I needed on the last round, costing me 4 or 5 points.
