First game involving Wonders of Humanity
« on: October 31, 2023, 10:51:51 AM »
Just finished a game using for the first time the new Wonders of Humanity expansion. Definitely a positive experience, with a few nuances. First of all, my impression is that this expansion works way better in a game with 4 people. Playing one vs. one, my impression is that we'll ALWAYS pick Notre Dame (monastery) and Stonehenge (roads) first, in this order, leaving the other two wonders in the box. Notre Dame feels overpowered: 3 points for each placement close to a Monastery is insane: my sister got ALOT of points that way, while me myself managed to stay close to her only thanks to the Stonehenge tile and the big city in the south. In the end she won by 2 points, thanks to a second farmer she placed, with great prejudice, with just three turns to go. The wonders are also beautiful to look at on the map, even if the canonicity censor who lives inside my brain weeps at the sight of MORE non-french landmarks places there, in the middle of some french land  C:-) C:-) C:-)

Game recap
- Base Game + Abbots + Farmers
- Inns & Cathedrals (only tiles)
- Wonders of Humanity
Pink 210 - 208 Green

Nice idea to use frozen meeples to mark proper Wonder.

Ooh, love the looks of this. Love how there are no holes. ;)
And like Bumsakalaka said, great idea to use the frozen meeple to mark whose Wonder it is.  :yellow-meeple:
