Path of Light And Shadow
Played my fourth game of this last night and damned if I can figure out how to win it. Secret genius Jonathan Perrine absolutely murdered everyone. I think I lost by at least 75 points.
Honestly, no idea. Nothing clicks over for me. It’s fun! Just can’t see any pathways, merciful or cruel, to a winning endgame.

I have this same problem with Splendor and Sushi Go. I think I see a good strategy only it would appear I go after the absolute worst possible strategy. So I try a different strategy to turn out it’s also the absolute worst strategy.
When BoardGameGeek is bavk up, you may want to try the strategy forum for the game. Although Path of Light and Shadow is rather new, so I don’t know how many threads have been posted yet.
I’m about to play it for the first time tomorrow.
Chris Groff I am weirdly good at splendor and yet absolutely terrible at sushi go.
Fwiw, I drew myself into a huge deck, promoted every turn, and sat on/built two strong provinces. I used promote and place on top to build defensive hands when it came to fight time, and still had to get lucky on rolls.
I’m pretty sure that path is a lot like scythe in that you can get away with engine building only until someone brings a fight to your door. Maybe also why sushi go, with competing hands, messes me up more than the open ladder climbing of Splendor.
