Wednesday Session with TOWER NCV
« on: May 09, 2013, 06:33:42 AM »
Back for more, my wife was up for another game this week. Here's the line-up:

-Base Game
-River/River 2
-I&C
-base tiles from T&B and A&M
-The Tower (using NCV rules)
-Builder
-Mayor
-Abbey

Final Score:
-Me (Black): 258
-Wife (Blue): 264

In addition to TOWER NCV rules (rev 0.7), we played with my wifes idea, where the 'owner of a tower scores 1 point for each segment in the tower any time that a feature is scored by an opponent that includes the tile containing that tower. We played that this applies for all features and that it applied at end-of-game too.

My wife and I initially tied at end-game, with 258 points each, but then I noticed those two 3-section towers owned by my wife (in the pictures below) were bordering on fields that I'd just scored with a farmer. +6 points to my wife for the WIN!

The ability to score points for tower segments when others complete features really energizes the game, and I'm planning on officially including these rules when I get a chance. I got 9 extra points for taking ownership of a tower that was in range of 3 features that belonged to my wife: 2 cloisters and a road.

I also had the chance to use 4RM for the first time to 'get back' one of my Lookouts. There was 1 tower segment in his tower, and the tower tile was completely surrounded, so I scored 10 points and got my follower back. The current rules allow for this to be done at any time, so i didn't have to burn a 'moving of the wood' action to use it. I can see now how unbalanced scoring a farmer would be using this method. When I update the rules next, I'll adjust this to scale down the points per city attached to the field.

Will post photos now.

Check out those two blue Lookouts sitting pretty on their towers. Those were the game-winners right there.
