This one was suggested as a quick game by Timothy, so it was pulled out and taught to us. I didn't quite set myself up well in the beginning, so it ended up making the game a little harder, but I did like the mechanics of it. I like auctions games.

It was getting late at this point (after midnight), so we ended up playing Boomtown again since we wouldn't have to learn something new. I set myself up a bit better this time, however I still lost.

Played this at least once.

I think I won this one because Emily and Rhiannon are fierce bidders.

German edition. Played a few times, but all contents are like new. There are about 5 cards with German text on them. I read the rules and had these memorised after one play, so it's pretty straightforward.

Starting price £5

Postage through the company of your choosing, at cost.

Closing date will be the 29th of April as I'm about to head out of the country for a bit.

With the flurry of reprints, it amazes me that this casual / family bidding game with a twist isn't a part of that. It also serves as a shade of Catan, with two 6-siders determining payout. It's so easy to teach, cards can be explained as they come up, and there is a lot of interaction in the bidding and majority shenanigans that keep players on their toes. A gem that deserves to return to the spotlight.

German edition, includes colour print-out of English rules.
The only components with German text are the event cards, which can be pretty easily looked-up in the rule book as needed.

Won as a prize at Cardboard and Sun last year, opened but unplayed.

I'll add a copy of Card City

French edition, includes colour print-out of English rules, no language requirement on the cards.

Also received at Cardboard and Sun, this is a cool clever little abstract which is just a bit too abstract to hit the table for us often. Excellent condition.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

I was introduced to the game using the New bid payout and card selection mechanic variant, and it works so well and so smoothly that I can't imagine playing with out it. One of the few cases where a house-rule modification is an actual improvement to the rules IMHO.

We played boomtown as one of the most prolific boardgamers in Belgium likes this a lot more than Machi Koro.
We had played this before and I rated it than 7.75.

the game saw me buy an expensive mine in round three only to have a cave in during the income phase.
that set me back but I managed to stay in contention with Karl and Gust.
Karl took first spot with 104 Gust ended just short of 100. And I scored 95.
Alain was left behind with 44 points.

This is a city building game but Machi koro is done better imo . What sets this game apart is the bidding and paying for your property. Only the winner pays and gives money to his right. That player keeps half of it , rounded up, and this one gives it to the next player.
The player left to the winner of the bid has the benefit of picking a building second a so on.

My rating is down to 7 now. Because I like Machi Koro more and I probably will pick that 90% of thetime over this one.
