This game is deceitful. Based on its cutesy artwork and simple rules, you might be tempted to think that there is not much to this game. Beware Captain, there be tactical dragons in these waters. However, for this quick guide we won’t be going too far off shore.
There are only two real issues a newbie should be aware of and the rest you will need to learn from experience:
My father-in-law has this staying: “Family, Friends, and Fish start to smell bad after three days”. I would apply that saying to this game as well. 2 to 3 turns per race is a good guideline. Of course it all depends on the races that you and your opponents have. That’s the beauty of this game: there is always exceptions.
