Min favoritt så langt, særlig fordi dette er noe så sjeldent som et eurospill der den historiske tematikken kommer fram i mer enn bare illustrasjonene. Passe dypt, passe langt og passe pent. Et av (bare) tre spill fra Skauen jeg har skikkelig lyst til å spille flere ganger, og det eneste hittil jeg kunne tenke meg å kjøpe selv.

A solid business game that's unfortunately hard to get on the table. Still, it's one of Martin Wallace's finest moments.

Picked this up as sort of a wildcard, not knowing much about it except Rahdo is a fan of the variant 2 player rules for this.

So printed the rules and tried it out today.
This actually worked great as a 2 player game, part of the board covered up, less cards in the deck and we where ready to go.

It's a great heavyer game and we had a blast, first 3/4 player game that actually is great with 2. thumbsup

I concede, I don't need this copy because although it's a great game it frustrates me with its complicated rules and I never want to play it. I think this copy has only been played once.

We closed on a house this past week, and went for an 8+ mile hike up a 4000-footer in the White Mountains (4 down, 44 to go!), so there wasn't much time for gaming, nor will there be until we move in next month. Just a couple games yesterday, and one was wrap-up of an online one that had been running for a couple weeks.

It's pretty much online games for a few weeks, and maybe one game day over the holiday weekend as it'll be a 4-day weekend for me, so plenty of time to get some house-related things done even if I slack off for one day.

Sunday



Squeezed this in between getting boxes and bins for moving, and giving a tour of our future home to our folks. Mrs. Drazen held on for a while, but made a tactical error - it probably would have been a tie, but her error rendered it a win for me.



I grabbed a victory, but I think the second place player could have thrown two overbuilds on me that could have won, but missed the opportunity - probably because I did something I basically never do in Brass, which is dropping low level iron works tiles in Manchester (usually I put them in less-popular spots... Rochdale, Blackburn, or Barrow-in-Furness). I got to basically KO one player in Canal by flipping all the ports they needed, and watching the Distant Market take a cruel turn; that was a nice bonus. My cards weren't great in either era, but a 25+ VP projected lead in Rail (such as I had) usually holds.

I usually enjoy Martin Wallace's economic games (while I'm not so much into his conflict packed Warfrog stuff) and this one is no exception. It is a clever mix of his usual elements: Few actions per player round, income track, loans, changing turn order, network building. It also has the usual rough edges of his self-developed games. But all elements together form a game that leaves you thinking about better strategies in next play. Tactical optimization is needed as well.

Brass would rank higher on this list if I had played it as often as it deserved.

I regret not discovering Brass earlier in my Martin Wallace explorations. A daunting game to learn, Brass is a lovely integration of simple mechanics and deep, ruthless strategy. What I enjoy most, I think, is that it is an economic game whose economy utterly relies on the decisions of the other players; with the exception of the "External Market" cards, which will generally get played out pretty quickly, the game itself does not offer a mechanism for manipulating the system's economy. How well you do is entirely a function of how you deploy your industries, and how well you anticipate the needs and actions of your fellow players.

It is competitive without feeling combative, since everyone needs everyone else to drive their scores. There's no hiding in a corner of the world racking up points while you let everyone else go at each others' throat.

It suffers a bit from fiddliness and some arcane rules that you are very likely to get wrong the first few plays, but ultimately, it's an engaging and deeply satisfying play, the kind of heavy Euro I could actually play several times back to back.
