"If you play that Deserter on him, you'll get a level 2 knight. And if you use it on me, you'll stop me from getting either a Defender or a Progress card when the barbarian hits. But if you use it on [livejournal.com profile] reynardo... well, there's no strategic advantage to that, but it would probably make her cry."

- me, advising Rey's mother during last night's Settlers of Catan game.

(Rey paid us back by winning the second game, which was one of the more fun games I've played in a while. All four of us were in form - we each managed to get a metropolis at one point or another, and it wasn't clear who was going to win until the very final turn, when Rey pulled a swift one to steal Longest Road off her mother. But I won the moral victory... if you can call it that.)

I played one game with that expansion... I managed to expand all over and dominate the map, but lost, BADLY, because I didn't have access to commodities, just resources. It's really hard to fit enough points onto the board to win with resources, especially when everyone else has more development cards than you...

Yeah, it's pretty hard to win Knights without at least one good commodity source. We usually play to 15 points, which means you pretty much have to have at least one metropolis to win, but it also means there's a bit more time for a player with good resources to build up a source of commodities.
