Anyone wants a Trajan giveaway game?

Message par petyr » 29 Juil 2015 12:39

In this "mode" I'd like to see how few victory points a player can get. It will be played as a non-count game (no affect on ELO), and all players will try to gather as little VPs as they can - it's important, because if someone will be playing a normal game, it will spoil the whole giveaway fun. So in the end we'll just congratulate the player who'll gain the least amount of VPs.

If you want to play giveaway, let me know, so I'll create a special game and invite you.

You just have to make the minimum "senat" action, all other action can give you nothing.

Yes, and you also need to get rid of all cards, and try not to take cards which will give you bonuses in the end.

like those experiments.
Did this a while ago with Agricola in 8 different variants.

I am in if you need me. But if you have enough players it's no problem if you leave me out.

Well, one game is already running. What about more giveaways?

I don't mind trying.

Also how do you make an unrated game, only as a registered user?

I'm also interested in a "co-op" game.. trying to get as high of a team-score as possible (un-rated of course).

Yes, you need to be Premium member for doing that.

So I created 1 giveaway game and 1 cooperative - for us three. Maybe someone else wants to play in special modes?

And some feedback finally. The strategy is quite simple and can do little against the bad luck: use your starting commodities and Trajan tiles fully, don't take other commodities and Trajan tiles, try not to take Senate tiles or at least take those which won't bring you VPs, move mostly to Forum and Trajan, because these actions are optional, get rid of builders and legionnaires in the beginning. The worst luck is when you get a "3 VP for each yellow Senate tile" on the start and you are first in the Senate, with it you'll take much VPs and won't be able to overcome other players' better luck.

And on strict Trajan rules (those from the official rulebook): all actions are optional really, so giveaway has little sense here. Also people demands may give you negative VPs according to the rules (so current BAJ implementation is rather forgiving with 0 as the lowest score).

Thanks all. As long as giveaway is not interesting in strategy here, I doubt I'll play other giveaways.
