WONDERFUL !!!

(OK, I might have a bit of a bias
as I'm myself a bit of a monk ( no
joke ) + reading now the monasticon
anglicanum (english compendium) but
...lord, this game has got it all :
great theme, sturdy pieces,
funny monks, original ideas
+ the best latin phrase ever
found in any modern game :
delivrez-nous du mal !

(
house rules :
1° at the start of the game,
if you get 3 brown tiles, put
them back in the bag & draw again
2° secret way tile = direct passage
from the abbey to there & from
there to the abbey

Not sure if I want to trade it, actually.

My decision is heavily influenced by what do you'll offer in trade, mainly wishlist items with rating of 1 or 2.

Rating based on my first demo game at the UK Expo, but I'm pretty confident it won't drop. Very enjoyable game of tile placement along with positioning your monks and collecting the letters to complete your word or phrase from the Lord's Prayer in Latin.

A fun game with various different elements; although it is described as a tile laying game this doesn't have the same feel as, say, Carcassonne, which is all about laying tiles; the movement of your monks and the buying of tiles and/or more monks is equally if not more important.

Bought this at the UK Game Expo yesterday (31/05/08) from the Ragnar Brothers stand, after playing a game with Steve. Really enjoyed it. Thanks to Steve for sitting in and showing us how to play. Although this plays okay with two players it is much better with three (and presumably four).

It's Ragnar Bros. 'nuff said!

This is actually a tough little game! There's a LOT to think about, although it doesn't seem so at first glance. It will take a couple of tries to play this one well--very subtle. Wrestling with the rules (odd organization) doesn't help.

It may look like Carcassonne, but it sure ain't Carcassonne!

Majdnem 9-est kapott a játék, egyedül a játék végi pontozás furcsa nekem. A betűk vásárlása szerintem az egyik legzseniálisabb ötlet amivel eddig találkoztam, a carcassonne rendszer összemixelése a lost valley rendszerével is nagyon jól működött. A lapok húzása egy jelentős szerencsefaktor a játékba, akár nagyon rosszul is kijöhet, ezen lehet kéne egy kicsit finomítani. Végig izgultam és a nehéz döntések jól megmozgatták a szürkeállományomat.

Take Carcassonne, add several restrictions on where tiles can be placed and make the meeples mobile. Score every turn, and allow the purchase of end-game points with the score. Polish it up and you've got a gorgeous game, which is what Monastery is.

Strategy based Carcasonne! This game gives you plenty to think about on your turn. Which tile to place, where to place it, where to move your monks, make your monks pray or work? My only concerns are that with 4 players it runs a little long. Also, it might be a little too tight. It's hard for a player to make much room between himself and the other players. Makes for a close game, but if the game is that close between all players, are there really any meaningful decisions? Just 1 play...really need to play again.

Finally played again years later. I still like this game! But I seem to be in the minority.

Awfully written rules. But once you are able to get the game figured out, it's actually quite fun.

I just had to have this for the meeples but there's a good Euro game in the box as well. It's like laying Carcassonne tiles for a purpose. The rules could be better written. There's a good turn example on the Ragnar website and a good sequence example in one of the exel files here on BGG.
