All seven off us this week so we played a game of 7 Wonders. As Malcolm and Gareth are still learning the foibles of thed game, we started with the basic. Then we added Leaders for more games. Sir Nick has also now got the cities expansion, that adds black cards and mean that the hand lmit bacomes 8.... However we have yet to play a game with them in as there was limited time to play.
In the games we played, i won two and Sir Nick the other. The last one was the money lock in where i had the leader and the guild that both gave me 1 victory point for three coins on my card at the end of the game!
Back to cities and there are two new wonders (Petra and Byzantium). These work around the two new main rules.... Peace and Debt!
Peace - you sit outside of combat so now you have to look at how players away from you are doing and not just your immediate neighbours.
Debt - Now you can take money off everyone else in the game by playing debt. These are -gold tokens so can really hurt players and mean another change to your tactics. The only way to combat is to keep your money up so this will affect what you buy and how you spend your money.
I think these will add some much freshness to the game and i wil bring you a report once we have played it!!
