This week I decided to go with the granddaddy of the alea line, Ra!
Is it a push-you-luck game?
Is it a set collection game?
Yes. Yes, it is.
I have the original Rio Grande edition with the number 1 on the box spine and my copy has hardly been played, so getting it played will be a real treat.
The game is simple. You either draw a tile and add it to the display or start an auction for the tiles in the display. Each player can win a maximum of three auctions (four with three players) before each of the three scorings. The currency for the auctions are the sun tiles each player has. Initially, they are distributed evenly but when an auction is won, the sun tile which won it is put in the display and it will go to the winner of the next auction.
An auction can also be triggered by a Ra tile being drawn.
At the end of the three rounds, there is a final scoring and the player with the most points wins.
Tier auf Tier from week 25 with Michael and his daughters. As far as the alea challenges goes, nothing new was played but I did teach Castles of Burgundy to Michael and John. Now much of the Saturday players have been exposed to it.
