The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

Winnowing the Minnows

I see more sharks swimming on BSW. I’ve had several close games (wins and losses) and a blowout loss where the winner ignored the building track (reassuring). The basic formula appears to be:

  1. Build the Mason & Lawyer
  2. Build the architect
  3. Run the VP track
  4. ????

The first two are to make sure you don’t get shut out of a prestige building. The third is to build up VPs, obviously. That 4th point is “do something clever,” but I’m not sure it stays the same.

But a refreshing loss, nonetheless.
