Bra spel som går ut på å lure grunnregelen for plasering..

Played 19 times with 2, 3, 4 players for 10 hours.

MAY 2013: I worried that this game would be too dry and abstract for my liking. Well, it *is* incredibly dry. It's also incredibly clever, and the multiple layers of modality (scoring, powers, terrain) make this one a home run.

My first impression was a 10, but the last couple games felt harsh with the large areas that are difficult to get out of. But it seems like clever play (i.e. multiple accesses) should mitigate that and maybe bring this back to a 10 for me.

JULY 2013: I'm getting better at the game, but still won't rate a 10. It's like Cribbage and Dominion - doesn't wow me, but I'm always willing to play it for the challenge of playing well.

MARCH 2014: Nose dive. Just feels so dry once the novelty of new game wears off. Also, not appealing to any of the casual gamers I play with, so it's not getting played.

I really want to like this game more (not that I dislike it, it's a great game) but I'm struggling with the extreme abstract feel it has. This game does NOT feel like building kingdoms at all. It feels like placing cubes and leveraging acquired algorithms to place or move more cubes. Nothing about the game even feels remotely like castle building. I really think this game would be well served with a redesign. Still, I wouldn't turn down a game...

Strength of the game is in the varying setups and victory conditions. Only played a few times, but my strong sense is that the early decisions are the real key to the game. Very simple mechanisms, but deeper than it appears at first blush. The mandatory adjacency placement rule is an interesting constraint.

Fun game. Some are saying that this builds upon and replaces Through the Desert but I have to disagree. They're both route-builders but Kingdom Builder has much more luck. Having a hand of one card to work with sure can be frustrating but I think it also adds to the challenge (and I'm sure it helps speed up the game). The variable scoring targets are very cool. Has a major turn-order/first player advantage - it seems like more and more designers are neglecting turn-order considerations. With a 30-minute play-time I won't let it bother me too much.

Good game. Plenty of replayability. The random victory conditions will make each game different. Plays quickly, which is a plus. Great to play with non gamers and I enjoy the block placing mechanic.

There is a reason it won the 2012 Spiel de Jahres.

Quick-playing and easy to explain. There may be options for clever play. Didn't really grab me after my first two plays.

Interesting constraint based but still free to choose game, a lot's of opportunistic/tactical decisions. After 2 plays the first player won each time, but that's probably us unless some combination of goals and powers are unbalanced (like the 3pts for linking place + boats?). Quick game (1h) I'd replay it when the occasion presents itself.
