Joe, Kevin, Louis, Gina and I kicked off games Saturday evening with Eminent Domain along with the expansion. I decided to focus on colonization and research. I quickly settled my first planet and then picked up a Peace Treaty to benefit from Joe and Louis’ warfare roles. The others were quickly expanding their empires, while I focused on the research. I managed to get two metalic planets, but the technologies available weren’t terribly useful. I picked up a bunch of points early with the Peace Treaties, and then finished the game with a bunch of technology and a prestige planet that I picked up using the planet recon technology. I had a sizable lead in point and handily took the win with 42. The next closest was 26.
We followed that with Lords of Waterdeep with the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion. I was aiming for Warfare and Commerce quests. I managed to get 10 of them completed, but most were smaller points. Joe was able to build a building that provided 10 points for three adventurers. Plus he had a quest that let him get the owner bonus when he used his own buildings. He was consistently getting 12 points from that building, since everyone was focused on their own quests and didn’t bother to contest the building.
Corruption flew off the board, and the building that removed it from the game was available. There were a couple points late where I had to take a 10 point hit to do an action, which ended up hurting my score significantly. Louis, Kevin and Gina were doing well, but couldn’t catch Joe.
Until next time, happy gaming!
