Tales from the (battle)field #6

Yesterday evening we had a game at my friends house who got Big Box as a present. From big box we choose Inns & Cathedrals, Trades & Builders and Ferries. We didn't expect that Markets of Leipzig, that I brought would boost this mix so much. That was 3 player game and I ended up with 259 points. Second player 228 and third 188.

Part of my score was one 69 point cathedral city. Those tend to develop quickly once you get your builder in. Last two tiles I put in one go, thanks to the builder. Don't you love those situations?

Getting back to the point of this post. One of the player put his meeple on market tile which gives one additional point per every road tile. Rest of us quickly followed as we saw how he started to race on the scoring track.

Thanks to Market one can get four point for short two tile road. Even a whooping 6 if there is Inn on the road. Add ferries to this equation and you can use single inn multiple times. This was the first time when I said "oh no, not another city tile, I want road!".

End of the game. Plane is naturally divided into few parts due to Markets of Leipzig.
