Awesome, awesome game. Lots of choices. Plenty of ways to score points. Beautiful components. What's not to like? Not a great deal of player interaction but in my opinion just the perfect amount for this game. First game takes some time as players need to learn all the differnt tiles but after that the game moves along fairly well even with AP prone players.

Finally played it...and loved it. I must admit that I really like some of the older titles by Stefan Feld, especially Im Jahr Des Drachen and Notre Dame, and this game has the same addictive quality. It took a little time to remember all the possible player actions and special powers (even though they are all referenced by tiny illustrations on the player boards), but after that the game played really smoothly. And instead of pain (a trademark of Stefan's older games), this game gives you so many options to obtain points that it really makes you greedy. Liked it a lot with three players, would like to try with two.
UPDATE: Played with two and loved it the same as with three. While playing, I am fully aware of the fact that I am enjoying myself a great deal. And the dice just make this game highly replayable. Magic.
UPDATE: Played this game ten times now, and have enjoyed it every single time. Don't expect this to change in the future - apparently, this game offers everything I enjoy at just the right levels of complexity and game length. Raised my rating to a ten.

For me, Feld has another winner here...spatial skills, various abilities that tie into each other and dice (I love dice!)...this game really hits many of my favorite game features combined into something I look forward to exploring through many plays...

Another great game from Stefan Feld.
Plays best with 3. Good with 2 and 4. With 4 players the game can drag out.

What I like about this game:
- only 2 actions each turn; but with clever use you can get more actions.
- each tile you buy has an advantage. Lots of choices; what tile to buy? Will I go for points or a tile that alters the rules?
- tension in being first to get bonus points.
- the rounds plays pretty fast. Not a lot of downtime. (But may suffer from AP)

Uno de mis favoritos. Una verdadera maravilla y el hecho de contar con variso tableros ayuda a que el juego no sea repetitivo y las estrategias varien en cada partida.

Lo malo es la calidad de los componentes, algo regularcetes, pero el juego merece la pena.

Este sea quizas uno de mis top de siempre.Funciona genial a dos.

Finally got to play this last night and really enjoyed the 2 player game. I think this one could get to the table often, especially with the variable player boards.

3 plays later and I've found another Feld game that will likely hit the 10 rating. This is a very fun euro design. It's too bad about the theme and cover art because the game looks painfully boring when it's really quite fun, even playful, because of the dice.

Dice mechanic is similar to Feld's own Roma. However similarities between these 2 games end right there. BvB is an excellent medium weight euro. In fact, it is gradually becoming my favorite game. Ever.

Jan.2011: Traded away Field Commander Napoleon to get a new copy of Castles. After a couple of games, I'm really enjoying this one. A few more games in and here's a major update: my wife agreed to play this afternoon and then later on that night she said she wanted to play again.Wow. Turns out she really likes it. Wife has wanted to play back-to-back games twice in the first week we've had the game. Crazy. And she's won 3 in a row against me too. And by a bunch of points. Ouch!

Excellent game! A lot of choices for the players. The constrains of the dice rolls limit those choices somewhat, but that just means that the players can gamble or play it safe since the dice can be manipulated with some safe play. A lot to do and a lot of fun.

Absolutely brillant game by Stefan Feld. The mechnics feel really natural and although the theme is paper thin, the actual gameplay clearly makes up for this. Also fantastic as a two player game, so will see lots more plays and with the added Spielbox bonus boards, I can see us playing this little gem for years to come.

Fantastic game. A true gem. Lots of choices. Many different ways to score points. The tiles could have been a bit thicker, but that's not a big issue.The player interaction is not great but there are a small portion of this in the game, just the right amount for this game. First game will take longer as you will need to learn all the different tiles. The games runs quick after the first game.

I love the combos in this game. I love games that score lots of points for things you do and this is the epitome of that type of game - nearly everything you do will get you some points or will lead to points later. Once you learn the play is very smooth. Toughest part is remembering what all the different buildings do - the player mat helps with this tremendously. Despite being 'easy' to play there is a lot going on so this is probably not a 'gateway' type of game.

Oh wow. This is truly one of my favorites of all time. It feels so good when you're playing, building your little... what is it supposed to be? A town, or city or something? Whatever, who cares? it's not the most thematic game out there, but it is sooooo good. Great combos to discover, no harsh upkeep mechanic or punishments (unlike in Macao, for instance - from the same designer), another fantastic and clever dice mechanic, no dumb "take that" thrown in just to make it more "interactive". Really, i can go on and on, but suffice to say that Mr Feld is certainly one of my favorite designers, if not my favorite - and his stuff just gets better and better. If you like low interaction, deep euros, and you dont mind some cool dice stuff thrown in, you will love this game. The bits are nothing to rave about, and the color choices are pretty but,...well...stupid. Nevertheless, the game is a masterwork.

My favorit game at present. You use your two dice for actions - get a new tile (farm animals, builings, river, castle, mine, or speciels), place a tile (in the right area), sell goods or get help markers to manipulate your dice roll. Only negativ is that the chosen colors are hard to tell apart, especially the yellow and light green. Not for colorblinds! But the mechanics are some of the best I have see so far.

Yup! This fun and awesome "city-building" game feels like a Euro all righty, with dice and victory-point-salad as is Feld's style. Can't do everything I wish I could do. Nice with the open info, including all dice rolls at start of each round, in order to do interfere with other players plans. Excellent feel to this one. Good balance of everything involved. Much replayability. A Modern Day Classic. My favorite Stefan Feld game of all that I've played so far.

One step up from a gateway.

Great game with (Alea's) lesser components and diminished artwork. I hope someone someday produces a deluxe version with thicker, bigger tiles, bigger and thicker boards, better rulebook, more estate boards, and better graphic design to bring out the theme and art better. This game deserves better.

Extremely fun tile-laying game with a nice blend of skill and luck, and lots of choices to make. The theme works well too- you feel like you are building your little estate. This game has gradually become a favorite of mine. That said, there is a bit of a learning curve with all the tiles and I highly recommend using the player aid available here on BGG.
