Spiffy,quiet concentration; good for multitasking

I have only played this once.

I bought it because I am looking for games which I can play with my brother as we listen to talk radio show archives.

He does not want a game that requires too much concentration, because then he cannot follow the radio as he plays. I will see if this fits the bill.

I would love to play this with my brother. He loved the original long ago, but word on the streets is that the new flimsy board detracts greatly. How come I saw this selling for $14? At that it should come with a solid board and the comic. Or at least let me download it and print it for that price.

A lot of ppl say this is better than Lost Cities. Must try! I may run off and buy it.
I bought it, and its great. Deeper than LostCities, and expanding it to 3 players works very well.

I like it. But firsttimers are a bit disoriented, so it is not light enough for my taste.

It might be great with a table full of people who have played it, but that is not likely to happen at the kinds of events tht I attend.

Carcassone is really just Dominoes with pretty scenic tiles instead of numbers, but Carc deceptively has more complicated scoring.

I like Dominoes because it makes no bones about the fact that it is a math game. And I like it because the math is simpler.

I will confess that I just don't like Carc, and might just be looking for reasons to not like it.

Quite a good game. Like Risk without the violence, but heavy on the diplomacy. A bit complicated and takes a while to play....when I get together with my brothers and my dad at holidays we can usually only play the 4 turn verson.

If this game were playable with friends over the internet it might be more workable.

Until BattleLine this was the Best 2 player game ever! Artwork is very good, and the gameplay balance is excellent.

My favorite of the heavier categories.

I think I like it because the progression is linear. Your position changes in a linear fashion, and each turn you have a different set of choices to make, unlike Puerto Rico where every turn you are choosing one of the same five or six roles.

Would like to try this game. KUDOS! to the game company, Rio Grande for making an expasion available for free online to print and play!!!
UPDATE- I got to play this last night, i kind of liked it. I won! I had no plan, it was just a matter of doing what made sense each turn. It felt like I was just riding a wave surfing, I was in a sweet spot the whole time. It was not a slaughter, but I had 25pts, followed by 22, 22, and 18.
I did really like that I went second though. I benefitted from player 1, and was set up to benefit from 3 and 4's moves.

My favorite game of all time. It adds aesthetics, and dimension to the "anayze the board" aspects of dominoes.

And it also works well with from two to five players.

I often play Battleline without the tactics cards = schotten totten.

I just wish it had more of an Anglicized name or nickname. Who wants to learn a game called Schotten Totten?

Great game. Can rack your brain a little while learning it. If you teach someone, please simply READ the sentence in the rules, that explains exactly what a set it. Of course first you have to mention the four different characteristics, but then you should read the sentence word for word. Its an excellent clear and concise definition of a Set.

I used to love this game. It is fun wackiness. If I recall correctly it may be a bit easier to win as the Mayor, but even if thats so, play to games and see who fairs best as Mayor.
