This is a very light game, I know that too, but talking like a carpet handler who hardly masters our native language (dutch) takes this game to another level.

This was a surprise hit with us when we checked it out of the library at the UK Games Expo. It looks quite toy-like with it's little carpets and wooden person but it's one of those simple but absorbing games and takes about 20 mins to play (very little of which is set up).

I played 20 new games this month. Here are my favorite five:

Marrakech - 9.4 - Game of the Month - Best Quality

Marrakech is probably the best roll and move game I've ever played. As with most roll and move, there is a good amount of luck however, there is a high amount of strategy, both in turning the merchant and placing the carpets. Each of these can set you up for success, even if a die roll is involved. Trying to set yourself up to not have to step on any opponent rugs and being able to cover up their rugs as well is strategic and enjoyable. This an excellent one and something I'd love to play over and over again.

Mystery Rummy: Escape from Alcatraz - 8.9 - Game of the Month Runner-Up - Most Thematic

Escape from Alcatraz is the first game I've played from the Mystery Rummy series. If the others are even half as interesting as this, I think I'm in for some good times ahead once I crack in to the others. This one though turns rummy from a sort of boring, theme-less card collection game into something with a little meat on its bones. Add to that the action cards along with how sets are scored, you've got a winner.

Mord im Arosa - 8.5

Mord im Arosa is one of those games you might look at and think, "Gimmick!" and hey, you'd be right. However, that gimmick really does make for a cool looking and fun playing game. I love how after you listen you could swear that a cube is definitely on the fourth floor only to find out there's absolutely nothing there at all. Or worse, try to cover your tracks only to reveal 4 or 5 cubes of an opponent on the floor and none of your own. It's an excellent game that plays fast and has everyone on their toes trying to figure out who killed the victims!

Tsuro of the Seas - 8.4 - Best Art

Tsuro is a game I really enjoyed when I played. Tsuro of the Seas takes it up a few steps and changes the game slightly and, in my opinion, for the better. Adding in the movement of the dragons may make for a less strategic game, but it definitely adds to the fan factor as well. Never quite knowing how things will turn out from the end of your turn to the beginning of your next really makes it interesting. If you take it to seriously, you'll have a bad time, but if you just go with it, there's a really great game in this box, even better than its predecessor.

Pyramix - 8.4

Pyramix is a great game in a great package. As the begins and as it's played out, the game always looks great. The gameplay is simple, take a piece from the pyramid following a couple of rules and adding it to your collection, but through this simplicity there's a really strategic game to be played. While cranes and eyes score the most points, collecting ankhs is key. Excellent little game.

For us, Flat Acting fell, well...flat. It's really unfortunate as well since it seemed like it would be a fairly enjoyable little game. I think it boils down to the huge amount of luck that occurs. Having other players being able to control your own pieces really hurts for any strategy you may wish to have. I know it's pointed more at family/child weights and it may succeed there however, for three adults, it couldn't end soon enough.



I'm not a huge fan of most word games however, Dabble does bring a little more to the table than most. It's really a race to create your words and try to use them all as to not give up points to your opponents. I like some of the variations as well, such as coming up with a category that all words should follow. So yea, for a word game, not half bad.



Marrakech is probably the best roll and move game I've ever played. As with most roll and move, there is a good amount of luck however, there is a high amount of strategy, both in turning the merchant and placing the carpets. Each of these can set you up for success, even if a die roll is involved. Trying to set yourself up to not have to step on any opponent rugs and being able to cover up their rugs as well is strategic and enjoyable. This an excellent one and something I'd love to play over and over again.



For more information on the games we played, please take a look at my blog. I should be updating it with a new entry after the holiday. Thanks for reading.

I posted a brief review on the blog: http://www.unpluggedgames.co.uk/2015/04/29/review-marrakech/

A tile-laying game with carpets instead of tiles. The goal is to cover as much of the board as possible with your own carpets while obscuring those placed by your opponents. A very straightforward little filler game with just enough decision-making to make it interesting. Pretty cheap as well, I think. Sure I've seen it going for under £20.
