I played Terra Mystica with the Dwarves for the first time. Let me tell you how it went!
I'm trying to experience playing with all factions, so I do my best to avoid picking the factions I've tried before. That means game conditions aren't necessarily the main factor when I'm choosing my faction. I think this particular game was not the best for picking the Dwarves — relatively low worker game with Swarmlings and Nomads as opponents.
I had two main problems in the game. First, I had a hard time competing for terrains. Dwarves' home terrain, mountain, is two steps away from both desert (Nomads) and lake (Swarmlings), but they are three steps away from each other. That means that my opponents could terraform my terrains into theirs easier than terraforming each other's. Also, the Nomads' sandstorm ability was brutal. They kept cutting me off and managed to stop me from connecting my network in the end. Second, the other two players started developing their first and second towns away from me, but next to each other, even though both my starting dwellings had neighbors. So, I didn't get any power from my neighbors for most of the game. And Terra Mystica without power leech is extremely frustrating!
I didn't find the Dwarves strong, but I'm sure in some situations they can shine too. What do you think? Have you played Terra Mystica with the Dwarves where they seemed stronger than the others? Which factions are the strongest in your view?
Pipeline é um euro econômico pesado. Essa foi a primeira vez em que jogamos e precisamos jogar mais para ter uma opinião formada. Demanda muito planejamento da sequência das ações e da colocação dos tiles de canos.
Have you ever taken game photos and then, for some reason, never gotten around to posting them on Instagram, even though you intended to? 😑 Normally, I’d be posting something for #BuriedSwipeSunday where you choose a secondary photo from a previous post to feature in a new post - all by itself - and explain why it was buried the first time. Well, today I’m finally posting some Quacks of Quedlinburg photos that inadvertently got buried in my photo album! 📷 😦
These photos are from way back in September! At the time, hubby and I were trying to play through all the different books. 📖 I held off on posting because 1) I was posting a lot for challenges at the time, and 2) I thought I’d wait till we played through the variations and then comment on the game in more detail. Well, life got in the way, and hubby & I haven’t had a chance to get back to our play throughs. 🤦🏻♀️
On this particular day, we were introducing Quacks to friends. Normally, Dash is our game cat who mills about, jealously demanding our attention. However, on this day, we were playing in the afternoon just before cat dinner, which meant Mango was awake and ready to play. Later in the evening when we were playing a 2nd game of Quacks - our friends really enjoyed it - Dash reclaimed his role as game cat. 😸
So while this technically isn’t a #BuriedSwipeSunday post, I hope others will join in the hashtag with their buried swipes. 👍🏻
