WBC Coverage: 7 Wonders Quarterfinals

By Brian Durkin

In a previous post, Pat Coyle sat down with Brian to discuss 7 Wonders strategy. This time they take a look at one of Pat’s games, but not just any game. Competing in the World Boardgaming Championship, Pat plays side “B” of Babylon and attempts to place into the top 18. Check out his picks in the video below as Pat discusses his strategy for the event.

Do you like to dedicate a lot of picks to scientific structures? When playing Babylon do you try to take all three manufactured goods in order to set up a Chamber of Commerce? Do you agree or disagree with Pat’s picks or any of the commentary?

Let us know what you think.
