what I hope to avoid this year by playing games at least twice. My first
attempt at Mexica, for example, gave me plenty to work with during my
second play a week later in which I surprised everyone (twice!) by
spending extra action points and bringing the round to a close.
The experience with Primordial Soup has proved quite so helpful yet, but
at least now I know to avoid the combination of Substitution and
Struggle for Survival.
