Lost Cities / Share your tactics
« on: 12/04/17, 07:05pm »
Hello everybody!

I am huge fan of Lost Cities. I started playing it as a board game with my student roommates in 2009, and than continue playing it on HM for years.

While in single game of LC a lot depends on a luck, playing it for hours and hours and years and years requires various tactics, ways of playing.

What are yours? How do you make decisions? Do you trust your intuitions and what are they?  Are any circumstances that encourage you to take the risk more common than others?

For me the most import thing is to think ahead. The more moves I can make with the deck of card that I posses in that moment, more likely it is that I will start playing it. If I have to count on a next card from the deck, that is probably a bad sign.
In my opinion, it is perfectly fine to built two non-profitable expeditions in order to get better cards.

I also try not to share money card with my opponent, but, if they open a lot expeditions or one strong one, I will impose them some small cards.
On the other hand I try not to take any of the open cards. I believe that there is almost always option to get better card from the pile.

In addition to that I am interested in how do you experience your playing games with bots. Do you think they are better/worse in making decisions than live players? Maybe admins can tell us more about the mind of a bot in game of LC? Is there any machine learning involved? Maybe you can throw in some fun statistics, if you run them?

Looking forward to read your answers!
