Viticulture Tournament

@johnl, @Feygor, @Baelnor would like to join your table.

Invite sent.

I am on my biannual trip out to my in-law’s grape farm so this game is making me very happy, thematically.

I am quite liking this game but it is burning my brain a little trying to figure out the harvest>age>press>age/mix cycle of grapes and wine. The mechanics aren’t hard; my planning is poor.

I really do like it a lot. I’m surprised I haven’t played it on the table since 2017 but I’m enjoying the app! However, now that the Steam version is out (and I have bought it), I’m not sure how to log in to my Digidiced account and I’m also unclear how to actually exit the app. I don’t see any “Return to Desktop” function on it.

Same with Isle of Skye (my only other Digidiced app on Steam).

Any help there?

hello @geigerm, it’s your turn for a long time now (timeout included).

Sorry about that–missed the notification and forgot to check in.

no problem. just glad to go on :hugs:
i like the game. still learning and making mistakes, but having much fun.

Yeah, learning this game is tough because I feel like it requires some good foresight. I’m quite enjoying my game but no, somewhere around the way point, I’m trying g to figure out how to salvage the winery I’ve made rather than letting it churn out points like the good economic engine it should be.

It was my first ever game and I quite enjoyed it, though I have no idea how the scoring worked out the way it did other than the obvious that you filled more orders than us…I’d watch the replay if I weren’t too lazy.

Fun game, though.

I’m glad! It definitely is a great game.

i have two questions:
i played the Architect ("…OR gain 1 VP for each 4-Lira structure you have built") but got only 2 VPs (going up from 11 to 13) although i own the Cottage (costs 4) and the medium and large cellars (4 and 6 costs). so i should have gotten 3 VPs, right?

and @geigerm played the Grower (“Plant 1 wine card. Then, if you have planted a total of at least 6 wine cards, gain 2 VPs”) but got 3 VPs instead (going up from 12 to 15 VPs) :man_shrugging:

oh, i just found the answer to my first question myself.
i think it can be that i didn’t BUILD the Cottage but got it “by parents”.

so what did i miss on the second question?

I think the Architect only gives points for structure that are exactly 4 cost, not over 4. So cottage and small cellar count.

Not sure about question 2…

Did he build the Windmill? I think that’s the structure that gives you a point if you plant a vine

Ah, yep that is it!

good find!
i like it when a plan comes together: to be enlightened by fellow gamers.
