This is my favorite game. It's a much better game with 3 or more.

Great game! High replay value, and unique scoring. I really don't think the farmers have such a huge advantage like some people say. Very simple to learn. Nice looking tiles.

Only played so far with two. And it is a great game for two--elegant, leisurely without dragging, involving just the right combination of strategy and luck. We sort the tiles into several piles, mixing the river tiles in with the rest, and then let them work their way to the top. Adds another difficult decision to the game.

Is a wonderful two-player game, and I'm always up for playing it. I get kind of possessive of this game though. Whenever freinds want to borrow my games, I always reserve this one as off-limits becuase I'm just so afraid they will lose one of the tile peices or loose on of my precious follower peices!

This is the game that got me hooked on board gaming again. Now that I own the somewhat more complex Hunters and Gatherers and Castle, this one doesn't come off the shelf as often as it did. Still a great game, however.

One of my favorites. Easy to teach and a great intro to German games as well as tile-laying/placement. English version includes the river expansion which I enjoy (it is played before regular tiles. Even if strategy isn't your bag, most players will enjoy because of the formation of the city.
