(static cam) Key to the City – London Gameplay Runthrough


hey everybody today rahdo runs through key to the city London which is effectively well I guess it’s kind of a sequel to key flower although it’s almost more of a reboot because it takes the same basic ideas of that most excellent work replacement slash auction game which is actually in my top 10 favorite games of all time and reimagines them not in the colonization of a new world but rather the building up of London one of the greatest cities in the world and I mean showing you how it works today in a two-player run-through today I’ve already got the games set up here and now fans of key flower you’re gonna see a lot of similarities here but there are gonna be several key differences as well and I’ll be demonstrating those as we go first of all as part of setup everybody starts with ten key poles that come in three different colors they’re just randomly pulled from the bag and normally everybody keeps them secret behind a shield but I’m not gonna bother with the shields because I’m playing by myself I don’t need to keep secret for myself but it’s very very important that players stay on the down-low about what they’ve got behind their shields because these little key poles represent their workforce they’re these are workers they can send out to do stuff but they also represent the monetary units that you use to bid in a non-stop series of multiple simultaneous auctions let’s see here and as part of setup looks like I’ve got four Reds four blues and two yellows Jen’s got well we’re both actually fairly evenly distributed these were just randomly pulled from the bag right before I started so this is secret Jen doesn’t know what I’ve got I don’t know what she’s got but I’m starting out with Greenwich here Jen is starting out with Buckingham Palace and this will become the center of our borough we are each trying to build up our own borough of London and make it the most successful possible so also as part of set up several oh I forgot these are all basically these are in game objective tiles that came from this stack you can see there’s a whole bunch more several of them are revealed depending on the number of players and a two-player game four of them come out everybody knows what these are and these are potential in-game bonus scoring things the Lord cricket Lordsburg round British Museum National Gallery and oil festival hall Royal Festival Hall if I end up at the end of the game with the British Museum in my borough then I will score two bonus points for every other one of these in-game bonus tiles so if I get this this guy is gonna be worth one two three four five six seven eight this would be worth eight points right here if I get the Lord’s Cricket Ground I get two points at the end of the game for every red people that I’ve got left over at the end and the National Gallery says hey we get points from money left over normally money is not worth anything at the end unless you have the National Gallery and then the World Festival Hall wants a rainbow assortment of connections so if you have a full set of all for every full set of all six colors you get three points and that’s where these little connector sticks come in but we’ll come back to that in a second so these are put up with more players there’d be more of them but everybody knows where they are and so we can be keeping these in the back of our mind throughout the entire game thing in hey you know what I better set myself up to have a lot of money or I better set myself up to have a lot of red guys or whatever but that’s only if I am successful at getting these because in the fourth and final era of the game these tiles will be up for auction so I might have spent my whole game building towards them but then if I don’t bid high enough I won’t actually get the tile that I need to score all the stuff I’ve done anyway so these were chosen random they could have been completely different things could have been hey have architecture or left over at the end of the game or construction or these special level three monuments the more of them you would have so they give you different targets this is what our targets are this game also as far as setup hey wait a minute there we go yeah there are 1 2 3 4 5 6 0 1 tiles you can see this little thing right here in the first of four eras these six tiles will come out every single game and then on top of that several other four other tiles in a two-player with more players there’d be more but in a two-player game four additional tiles come out randomly from this stack of potential tiles so whenever you start in the first era no matter how many players you’ll always be bidding on trying to build the Bank of England Covent Garden Battersea Power Station the senate-house Paddington Station and the Barbican and as well there will be a few other ones that we’re going for also so that sit we’re set up ready to go I’m over here at Hungerford bridge and space number one I’m the first player so let’s get going now what do I do on my turn I take any number of meeples that I want of the same color I don’t mix and match I pick one color and I take as many as I want and I can use this group of meeples for one of a few different options the main thing it early in gaming to be using them for is to bid to get one of these tiles all of these tiles here if I can win them they’ll come over to my burrow and increase my burrows victory point value and give me access to all these tiles for the rest of the game to place workers because you know I could put this blue guy on Paddington Station to bid on it or I could just send him over here to actually do the work and at Paddington Station the work is we get one black and one gray connector which I would then apply to my existing burrow so with this one blue I could either bid on Paddington Station so I would if I win it in the auction I’ll own it for the rest of the game or I can use it to get some resources I need back home that’s a phase rule I mean I could do that with a yellow or whatever and I don’t have to start with just one I could start if I really want pang station I can start by bidding two and then if Jen wants it she would have to outbid me by bidding three now I’m putting these on my side because this kind of points towards where I am sitting and this is over here is pointing to where Jen sitting basically when anybody bids they put their meeples on the side that faces them on the board so everybody can keep track of whose bids are who’s suing I’m the first player you better believe I’m gonna try and bid on something and now these six tiles that come out in the first era every single one of them generates stuff I’m actually if I line them up a little bit more this one generates money bomb construction and architecture architect these these skill tiles that I get which are used to raise things and these three generate the connectors and these connectors represent different things as well each color is a unique thing Oh what are they I see I know it’s written down in here in the rules someplace but of course I can’t find it so oh wait no yeah black this represents telecommunication links between different tiles and blue is water pipes yeah grey is electricity brown is waste / sewage as you might imagine red is London’s famous underground you know the tubes and yellow is gas natural gas so over the course the game we will collect a lot of these connectors because we need them to make connections between all the different tiles that we will expand to make our borough bigger because well we will likely have objectives and goals to try to achieve that so these three generate this one generates a red and a brown this one generates a black and a gray or blue and a yellow these generate the goods and what do I want well you know what these are the ones that came out randomly and I notice over here Tower Bridge these four tiles that came out which were on protocol which ones come out every time these are all these don’t generate stuff they just generate victory points the more I can feed into them what they need the more victory points I can get in Tower Bridge this symbol right here means at the end of the game I will score this tile will score whoever owns it one point for every water connection every blue connection that comes in to tower bridge so if I think I’m gonna get that then I probably want to get Battersea Power Station because this was what’s gonna let me generate those water connections to make sure Tower Bridge is you know worth the most points but Battersea Power Station if I build this it’s worth one victory point that’s what this little coin symbol here means it’s worth one victory point but if I ever upgrade it it’s worth six points and it produces double connectors to upgrade it I need money that’s what this lil symbol is so if I’m planning on getting this because I want it to feed this then I probably also want to get the Bank of England’s because it will give me the money I need to be able to upgrade Battersea Battersea Power Station so it’s worth points and it generates more water connections so that I can make Tower Bridge so you can see how those three tiles I might target them as something I want to do and as an aside remember National Gallery at the end of the this is one of our in-game bonuses two points for every dollar we have left over at the end of the game so in this game money is worth points if this wasn’t out it wouldn’t be worth points so with that in mind consider I can see that little combo plus this I think I’m gonna make my opening bid now I got choose what color I bid with yellow red or blue well I don’t have much yellow so I’m not very strong if I get outbid I can’t keep going for that so I’m gonna drop that I’ll go on ahead and I’ll make an opening bid of one to try to snag the Bank of England and that’s your turn on your turn you deploy a collection a small group of meeples of a given color to either bid on something or activate something and there’s actually a couple other things we can do with them as well but we’ll come back in a second anyway that was it that’s my first turn now it is Jen’s turn now if she um you know evaluates the situation the way I do and says haebang coming it’ll be great to have because of the National Gallery really would like to get that then she might want to outbid me by sending two guys over there and then I mean and then this guy is out and I can go ahead and send him someplace else to bid on something or I can pump him up by sending some more guys so suddenly were at three if I wanted but you know I don’t know Jen wants to get into a bidding war right away so she’ll try and go get her own stuff she will try to lay hands I think on Paddington Station all right there we go so Jen’s made her first bid now if I want paying station I’ve got a bid too but I’m not gonna buy that I’m hi I’m him so Jen’s left now I’m gonna take one of my red guys and try to get Battersea so I’ve opening I’ve opening bid on one on that because I’m looking at both of those Plus that that’s kind of my big plan and Jen what if she want she will go on ahead and she’ll make an opening bid oh that’s a 2d dilly-doo right so she’s got that so what she’s thinking about is this Paddington Station generates black-and-gray connections Bank of England wants black and this white symbol means any colour wants black connections to upgrade but she knows I’m going for that trafalgar square wants black connections to be able to upgrade from worth three points to six points and then it wants more to be able to upgrade to twelve points by installing which one is it the this 3d mark on here to represent twelve points so if Jen wants to have a long-term goal of getting Trafalgar Square and upgrading it twice well she needs black connections which she does have if she wins Paddington Station so effect Jen she’s gonna try and lay claim to Trafalgar Square okay so now it’s my turn again nobody’s outbid anybody else I’m gonna can go ahead and continue and I eyeball the London Bridge I really wanted the Tower Bridge I mean and so Jen I see what else mmm I think Jen will go on ahead and do a starting bid over here on Hyde Park because this also wants black connectors which Jen can generate off of Paddington Station okay back to me back to mine now we can keep bidding like this and so far we’re keeping to ourselves we know we have we are trying to outbid each other anything like that because we’re both chasing after different things what do i what else do I want well um if I think I’m gonna win if I cuz so far I mean I remember I don’t know what’s behind Jen’s shield I don’t know what she’s got for all I know she has no black or I’m sorry no blue meeples and so she can’t raise me on Bank of England so if I wanted to what I could do is I could take one of my guys instead of actually bidding on something I can actually send them to the Bank of England to actually do some work I’ll do that and I’ve just made some money that again goes behind my shield alright and and so having done that now Jen says well she i I’ve just made a little bit more attractive her Jen’s gonna take her last to lose I don’t know this his last two blues she’s gonna send it over here and suddenly now she has outbid me on Bank of England and here’s why she did it before this you know I was gonna have to sacrifice one guy yeah this is my bid if I win Bank of England I spend this guy but here’s the thing now that I put a guy on here whoever claims Bank of England claims this guy and it comes back into your collection so there’s effectively a one meeple discount on the Bank of England now because I got a little greedy and jump the gun and made some money and so now Jim thinks you know what well I don’t mind bidding to over here because if she wins she’ll get this one back so and like oh well okay I uh I jumped the gun a little bit that main but now if I want all right it’s back to me I’ve got two blues I could raise and so now I’m up to three wishes but remember I’ll get this guy back see that’s the thing I went over here haffley cuz I’m thinking Oh Jen hasn’t shown any interest I’ll just come in here and I’ll start doing some stuff and then when I bring it back I’ll get my guys back but then silly Jen has claimed jumped my guys so do I raise the bid again and go up to three or do I let it go I mean now the thing is I do know that in the second era Lloyd’s is gonna come out and that’s a way to generate money as well so if I miss out on this it’s not the end of the world but more importantly I’m just kind of bummed that Jen would be getting one of my dudes so I think I will raise the bid to hold on to that and then it’s back to Jen and now Jen has no more blues she cannot raise that any more but she can take these blue guys as a group they cannot go away singer Lee and she could send them someplace else to do something else to like do a bid or she could send them out someplace to activate a given action if she wants to etcetera etc so let’s see here um right so uh so right now Jen is losing that bid and so does she want to she’ll just leave those guys there for a minute and she does come back – what else she’s got here and what is she gonna do now she can do the same thing I did she could go ahead and send one of her yellow guys to Paddington to start generating these connectors but then she’s worried that I mean we’ll get she doesn’t know what’s behind my shield do I have enough yellows to outbid her maybe she I mean I’m saying you saw that you know that little backwards when she maybe doesn’t want to jump on that again you know what I think she’s gonna do instead she’s just gonna try to monopolize she’s gonna send out another single bid over here on the Barbican if she wins this she can generate red and brown and she’s already hoping to be able to generate black-and-gray that’s four of the six colors although right now I’m winning on Battersea so we’ll see what’s up with that back to me back to my turn I’m starting to run out of guys and I got to start thinking at some point you can decide instead of deploying your guys to do a bid or activate a tile you can instead pass and there’s two ways you can pass you can just do a pass which means you know what I’m not gonna do anything this turn I just want to wait and see what everybody else does um or you can I think it’s called set sail or heave-ho that’s like a real pass where if you set sail you don’t get to do anything else for the rest of the era but as soon as somebody does that they move over here from the erewan tile 104 bridge over to the Millennium Bridge era – and and the first person to do this gets their choice of any of these berths they can be first player next round and get seven replacement people’s by drawing blindly from the bag or they can be second and get eight third fourth or fifth and get seventh or sixth place get six meeples and claim this tile as their own so they will have another tile to add to their borough so if I wanted to I could go on ahead and set sail right now and if I did I might want to only grab six people’s because like I’m saving a lot of needles for next turn because that means I will claim this tile as my own but here’s the thing if I do that if I fully pass and get off this auction merry-go-round that means I can’t protect my investments anymore and after I’m out Jen might jump in and try to outbid me on stuff so it’s kind of dangerous you have to really give a lot of thought to win are you going to bail or if I just want to wait and see what Jen’s gonna do I don’t have to do a permanent pass I don’t have to set sail I can just do a temporary pass say I’m gonna do nothing and then wait to see what Jen does cuz maybe I want to see if she’s gonna bid up or if he’s gonna activate something or whatever but here’s the thing if I do a temporary pass and then Jen does a pass then the round is over but me having actually all that wouldn’t happen but if I do a temporary pass Jen instead of continuing to go she might say well yo you passed well I’m gonna set sail and that means she gets out first on all this stuff but then that leaves the door open for me so I can potentially outbid her so there’s this game of chicken going on because I want to get out as fast as possible to you know get the best results by you know setting sail and moving into the second era but I don’t want to give up my control I mean I do I want Tower Bridge I want Battersea I’ve already spent a lot on Bank of England so do I get out now or do I wait now I’ve got two guys if I wanted I could you know raise Jen and try to take Hyde Park from her or the heck with you know I could just go on and try and get the Senate House or Covent Garden VIII this generates bricks this general construction this generates architecture I need money for my tile oh I do need bricks for Tower Bridge since I’m winning on that you know yeah I think I am gonna go on ahead and so I’ll make an opening bid on coming garden but do I do yellow or do I do red because I got her I got to think about what am I gonna say strong in currently I’m not making any bid with anything in yellow so I’ll go yellow that way I’m leaving two Reds in case Jen tries to outbid me on Battersea or Tower Bridge so that was my turn now it’s Jens turn again she’s got to be thinking the same thing as me does she keep going or does she bail on this era so that she can get first dibs on the Millennium Bridge right she’s already lost Bank of England um right now she is winning Hyde Park she’s winning Paddington she’s winning Barbican she’d be happy with that that’s a pretty good haul but again if she bails she doesn’t know heck for all she knows I’ve got a bunch of blue behind my shield because the colour is important I didn’t mention this but if Jen did bail and then I decided oh I want to get Trafalgar Square from her I cannot raise the bid with two Reds to beat her one because there’s a blue guy on this tile only blue guys can go to this tile so Jen doesn’t know it she is 100% safe on Trafalgar Square cuz I have no blue guys now Jen could take a guess because she knows I’ve put four of my blue guys out here on the board already um so unless I started with a ton cousin ever I started with ten maybe she it’s pretty I bet that I don’t have anymore blues because I probably used all my blues out here unless I drew like five or six in the beginning which could be so Jen thinks she’s relatively safe that Trafalgar Square and I mean it’s a bummer she does want to get the money out of Bank of England but I’ve outbid her she can’t get over there she is getting um she is winning Paddington Station I think I think I think gin is going to say you know what I’m getting off this crazy merry-go-round she’s not going to do a temporary pass because if she does a temporary pass then I might do a full pass and get to Millennium Bridge first Jen’s gonna set sail and be first over here and she is going to claim this spot she will not she’ll be last player next round she will only get six more meeples to add to our collection but she will claim this tile no one can take it from her in this tile is worth two points for every red or I’m sorry not red every blue connector that is attached to it at the end of the game all right so Jen’s out I don’t know what’s behind her shield I don’t know what she’s saving for next turn although since I know she started with ten I can just do a quick count and see oh yeah she’s saving for meatballs so she knows she’s carrying over four meatballs and so she doesn’t mind only picking up six alright see you late so back to me I can still do stuff now so I think I think I will but rather than use my like I could use my two guys over here to outbid Jen on the Barbican and some and jen wouldnt be able to do anything about it she would have lost that because she has bailed so that she could grab the Millennium Bridge but instead of doing that I’m gonna actually deploy my guys to do some stuff I’m gonna deploy a single red guy over here to Battersea cuz remember I’m gonna win Battersea now I know Jen’s out so she can’t outbid me that means I’m gonna get this guy back I’m basically getting work done for free and that gives me a blue and a yellow now I have to install these into my burrow right now and right now my burrow is only Greenwich so I basically just have to kind of go on ahead and put them however I want once they’ve been placed they cannot be moved so let’s just say I go with that all right right yeah yeah yeah mmm oke let’s go with like this let’s go like that yeah okay and now Jen is out she is taking the rest or meeples and gone home I’m still going and you know what what the heck I’m gonna go on ahead and send my one little yellow guy now my yellow guy he came over here to the Senate House and totally win the Senate house Jen couldn’t stop me from doing if I want but instead of that I’m gonna use him as a worker in Covent Garden to get me some bricks because remember I need bricks to upgrade my Tower Bridge which I’m gonna win Jen is out I’ve still got one more dude my last dude I could use this to get Senate house or you know or or interesting Lee if I wanted Jen’s about to win the Barbican right but if I want to I could go on ahead and send my guy here before she wins it to get a red and brown and install it over here in Greenwich but if I do that I am giving Jen this worker I’m not gonna do that but you know what there’s no one’s taking the sent house or great or or Ormond Street Hospital looks like I’m gonna go ahead and I’m gonna bid on that because nobody else can beat me to it so that’s that Jen’s out hang on competing home I’ve got nothing more all my stuff is done so I think the time has come for me to set sail as well and I will go ahead and take the number two slot which means I’ll still be the first player and I will get eight meeples now that was it that was the end of the round now we are will be at the end of the action now we claim all our stuff first of all any meeples that were that were outbid um get to go back home so Jen’s two Blues got outbid they come back home they’re part of Jen’s collection for the next round there were no other bidding wars so the rest is done now we go on ahead everybody all the winners claim their stuff about my three Blues got me the Bank of England and I claim this guy back but the three blues I paid to do it they go back in the sack Jack I also won Covent Garden and I get that yelled guy but that yellow guy goes away and let’s see I won Battersea I keep this guy this guy goes away I won the great Orman this guy goes away I want our Bridge this guy goes away right so those are all the ones I got Jen got all these other ones because they you know these she was bid on those unn interrupted so you got those and all these the lunch of it and nobody bid on the Senate house so it’s just out of the game now everybody’s taking their stuff and we’re you can do this simultaneously they can go on ahead and lay out these tiles however they want and this is a big part of the puzzle of the game because of these connectors it’s a very very common thing that to be able to upgrade because you want to upgrade all of these if I upgrade great right now Great Ormond Street Hospital gives me one point for any color connection that comes into it this is a lot flexibility but if I upgrade it it’s worth double it’s worth two points for every connection um my Greenwich uh its power which I didn’t do but anytime I wanted I could have sent one of my guys here which would let me change like a brick into something else into money which I have want more money because I’m planning on winning the national guy with the end of the game but if I upgrade this it’s also worth six points by default grants isn’t worth anything but if I upgrade it’s worth six points how do I upgrade it I have to have six connections one on each side in all six colors so that’s a long-term goal I need to get a red a gray a black and a brown onto this thing so that once they’re all in place I could flip this and score six points but if I’m gonna travel all those around I got to be thinking about what am I going to be putting next to this Tower Bridge this is the most interesting one we’re actually all know no chain ones came out all right so Tower Bridge wants this one wants cut ones of every color Tower Bridge just wants lots of Blues connected to it Great Ormond wants anything covet garden wants a red and something of another color right so right off the bat I definitely want to put Tower Bridge right here although this is an interesting thing as well Tower Bridge in Battersea they’re both River spaces so if I put them you know they the rivers have to align like something like this I could do like this if I wanted there I don’t have to line the rivers up but I cannot have River just hit wall so if I do something like that and that remember I’ve already locked in my blue I can’t move it now so if I do something like that then hey tower bridge has got the blue connection one of the blue connection is once and Greenwich has a connection it wants of a blue and it wants a yellow let’s see now I’ll put my Covent Garden over here because Covent Garden wants red so eventually when I get a read connection I’ll put it here cuz that’ll make Greenwich happy and it’ll make Covent Garden happy but I’ll have to get a read connection to do that and let’s see now the Bank of England it wants a black and a white so I guess it makes sense to go on ahead and put it down here like this and so I’ll eventually plan to put a black one here and Great Ormond wants any colour it’s not picky so this won’t have a little bit more flexibility about where to put it and since Tower Bridge can only take blues I think I’ll put it up here because I’ll gone ahead and put another blue like this because then Tower Bridge will have two blues grey doorman will have something its happy about and so there we go I’ve laid all these out and now while I’m doing that gin is also thinking about how she wants to lay stuff out as well now this thing doesn’t care about connectors uh padding cessation just needs bricks Barbican just needs architecture Hyde Park needs a black connection and it needs architecture that’s – Jen got the need architecture that’s kind of crazy then that she didn’t get the senate-house which generates the architecture oh dear I’m not saying I was playing very smart here now this is hope both of these want a black connector so it kind of makes sense to put them right next to each other somehow because then eventually hey one black connector will take care of both of their needs because they both want that so that kind of makes sense again puts those next to each other and then these two they just want you know to give up you know an architecture or skill tile or a construction skill tile so there we go jen has built hers over wait I forgot Jen also got Hungerford bridge so Jen needs to put this someplace as well I think she’ll go ahead and put this like this let’s say nope yeah yeah because this one wants blue connections Buckingham Palace wants a blue so Jen will eventually put a blue between these two and that’ll work out well so that’s the kind of planning you really have to do is you’re laying these out bearing in mind how to get the most use out of these connections so that everything lines up nicely now Jen’s also created a restriction for herself in this space in this space she must put a River tile because the river went ran through it like that anyway so that was the end of that and now the last thing we do is I’m gonna get eight more guy randomly pulled out of the bag just go ahead and get him one two three four Wow five six seven eight okay so going to the next round I am very strong in yellow one two three four five yellows three Reds and three blues Jen she’s only pulling six and see what she gets that did it today one two three four five six Wow okay so Jen is weakened red she only has two Reds she has a fair number of yellow and a fair number of blue alrighty so and we are ready to move on we reveal all the stuff that comes on here – there’s always six tiles Herod’s Lloyd’s the British Library Southwark Castle the BT tower and Charing Cross and interestingly these are new locations but they’re functionally identical to the ones that came out in the first round well not functionally um you know in the first round I got Battersea Power which grates blue and yellow now BT tower creates blue and black and the Cathedral creates blue and brown so it’s a different combination of things and we also because it’s a two-player game I’m gonna draw a four point scoring tiles one two three four alrighty Westminster Abbey and the Royal Opera House saying Pancras station and a monument okay so these are what we’re gonna be bidding on in the next round I’m gonna bid first because I took place and the new tile scoring opportunities that came out are interesting Royal Opera House and Westminster Abbey both have the same type these ones were law House wants red connection which is you know the the tube the the underground transport wants to read connections but it doesn’t want them all just connecting your Royal Opera House it wants to connect a chain it wants to be connected like say eventually gets put here it wants to be connected in a chain of stuff like red red red red red you know something like that because it gets more points the more connect the more things are connecting to change one point one two three four five six it would make six so it’s this kind of connection is fundamentally at odds with a home yo buckingham palace and the other types you know hunger front it just wants one particular type this wants one type but spread all over the place so again you can start to see how the puzzle works if I end up getting Royal Opera House currently well I do know Covent Garden wants a red so I’ll want Royal Opera House next to red but I want Royal Opera House to be part of a network of red so if I put the red here hey that’s great these two are connected but remember Greenwich wanted a red as well so yeah that would make sense I put a red here and hey I’m starting to make the chain and um you know the the oh they’re getting the Reds they need but I’m gonna want more Reds like maybe another red to eventually come over here to the Bank of England but if I do that then I give up the opportunity to ever have Greenwich be able to upgrade because it needs six unique colors and so this unique color thing is at odds with this chain and that can become an interesting puzzle as well if I end up collecting this if I bid on it and win it because maybe I won’t maybe I’ll go for other stuff remember I am also trying to set myself up so at the end of the game if I win Lord Cricket Ground I’ve got a bunch of red guys left over so maybe I don’t want to use any of my red guys in my bidding that I’m gonna do this round because I’m trying to save them up for the end of the game so I don’t want to only bid with blue and yellow but then what if Jen comes and takes something I want then I gotta use a red to be able to bid there etc etc so that’s it in a nutshell the game goes this is the second round where all this we’re all six core resource generating tiles come out plus four new well plus new wait column point-scoring ones then in the third round what happens things get more interesting definitely because you’re gonna get no more resources are generated for the rest of the game when we get to the third of four IRA’s you know we move on and somebody ended up taking Millennium Bridge you know whatever we go into the third year only points tiles come out but they all come out pre upgraded so they’re already upgraded to level two which means they’re already worth a lot of points and hopefully you know when we start bidding on these we will be trying to ensure that we have our best shot at getting ones we don’t know which ones are gonna come out but we’re getting ones that hopefully like this marble arch wants a lot of black connectors Jen can generate black connectors on Paddington Station what if I end up getting this marble arch and then I want to make a chain of black well I can’t make my own but I can always send my workers over to Jen’s neck of the woods giving her workers for the following round but giving me the resources I need to use the stuff and then the last round the fourth and final ear up that’s when these come out and we start bidding on them and you know buy if over the course the game I’ve been saving up tons and tons of money you better believe I’m gonna bid high to get that National Gallery but of course my money is hidden nobody knows how much money but he has nobody knows how much read anybody has and I’m you know this one you know this is Mike said this interesting one because this is where two points for each one of these you get so this could be worth eight if you get all four of them and you know at the end of the game maybe you’ll find you know if I wanted to I might just bid like crazy to get all these things because at the end of the game I’ve got a lot of money I’ve got a lot of Reds and I just bid like crazy with all my other stuff to win all four of these cuz that’s eight points plus all the points again for my Reds plus the points for money plus the set collection thing and you know my opponent Jen she might just double down on trying to upgrade all of her existing stuff and make her routes bigger and longer so she can score more and more points off of them um you know can it really it depends on well it all depends on what we’ve got in secret hidden and what we can bid on and what resources we can get because a big part of this game is once I’ve got the stuff in my burrow if like I said if I really need to get a black or gray I might send a blue over here to get some stuff out of Jen’s then that could be a problem for Jen because now if Jen wants to use her own she has to use blues also and she has to double she would have to send two guys out there to be able to activate it and that could really slow her down because that’s two guys she was planning on bidding with something so that’s really crux the game and all of that stuff is basically the same stuff you find in key flower the new stuff is all this network building and a lot of simplifying streamlining but if you guys would like to hear you know some final thoughts now about how Jen and I liked key flower versus key to the city you know a pros and cons of each uh-huh you can go on a heading at the I and the top right corner screen go to final thoughts in five four three two one
