why do people give up so early
« on: 21 August 2021, 02:18:37 AM »
i got a early rebuild on turn 5 but i wouldn't say the game is over by that point. what do you guys think?
rebuild isn't exactly a fast card. takes a while to get provinces

My guess is that the person unexpectedly had other demands on her/his time (dog needed walking, kid started crying, etc), and your move gave an excuse to quit.  Agreed...Turn 5 is really early to resign in response to a Rebuild purchase.

A few months after Dark Ages, everyone thought Rebuild was a broken card and wrote a bunch of angry posts and articles about it. It turns out they were wrong, and it's really not that impressive, but the idea has kind of stuck. If you're not that good at the game, Rebuild seems a lot better than it is too because it is a 1 card strategy (same with Minion and Sauna). So it's possible this person is just in a "rebuild too op" mentality and hasn't overcome that.

Depending on what else is on the board, it might still be the clearly best strategy. Lots of games are won or lost based on drawing $5 in the first or second shuffle.
