I'm curious, are equally skilled players more likely to win in the normal game or in Coffee-Break? I can see reasons for believing either:


Coffee-Break should be easier due to faster...

I only play coffee-break mode - I should have mentioned that in my post. So there's no option to teleport to other towns unfortunately.

Oh well, it's not a deal-breaker, just an annoyance.
