I generally enjoy Rosenberg games very much and this is the only one of his big titles that I haven't played as yet. I would absolutely love to play it but it doesn't seem to one that people are that eager to play even though one of my friends is a huge Rosenberg fan. I'm sure I will get it played eventually.

Bruce 236, Dan 233, Matt J 178

Ireland scenario. A learning game for Matt. Dan won on both settlements and buildings, but Bruce's points for goods made up for that gap.

It did not take Bruce long to construct his coveted false lighthouse.

After a bit of a gaming hiatus (a.k.a. tax season) it felt good to try a new game tonight. About a month ago I received a call from the game store letting me know that the game I ordered had arrived. While I had no recollection of ordering it, I took it as a sign from the divine that the I was meant to own this game.

To start out, I'm not certain if I'm just a little rusty on reading game instructions, or if the four pamphlet instruction set is a horrible way to learn this game. I probably spent a good hour trying to figure out how to set the game up and take basic actions. (Typically my strategy for learning games is to get the basic mechanics down, play for a few turns, and add in bits as it makes sense to me. And it was tough to figure that out here.)


I'm I only about a quarter of the way through the game. (Hopefully I can finish in the morning.) There seem to be quite a few similarities to La Harvre in the way resources are collected and converted. However I'm enjoying the process of this much more than I do La Harve, which might be my least favorite Uwe game. I've already made loads of rules mistakes along with plain old dumb mistakes.

Tomorrow I'll have a better idea of how it all works and whether I enjoy this game. My hunch is that I'll like it once I get the rules ironed out.

Well, I finished up the learning game and set everything up for a solo game.

This is your basic Uwe collect resources. Collect cards. Use your cards to convert resources to points scheme, and that satisfies me greatly.

The solo game had a couple of tweaks that added quite a bit of pressure, such as the loss of resources off of the wheel if you don't collect in time and also the buildings going to the phantom player. The phantom player worked well here because it exixted solely for live player's benefit. There wasn't a fake opponent to manage.

The rules say that a winning score is 500, which is apparently easy in the Ireland game (which is what I chose to play). However, I was very pleased with my losing score of 382. I enjoy games that force efficiency. It's going to take me a while to learn how to be efficient in this game. That said, you could theoretically figure out the optimal way to play this game and it would lose replayability. It would take me quite a while to get there, so I'll worry about it when I'm drowning in points. For those that are quite good at optimizing card combinations this might not offer as many solo plays.

The directions could be more clear in certain areas. I'll likely end up spending a little time looking up some threads on the game page that might clear some of those questions up for me.

This was a lot more fun for me than LaHavre. It may have even overtaken Glass Road. We'll see with a few more plays of each.

The end village that is built is rather satisfying.

Traded for it. Compared to the Le Havre app, this is much more up my alley. We managed half a game before the younger woke up and ended it, and haven't attempted it again. I'd like to try it with more players.
