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.

As is tradition, I'm going to plan to play waaaay more than I can possibly fit in.

I've been asked to bring: Ora et Labora so that's the first thing on my list.

I've got several unplayeds I'd like to get onto the table and will bring any of these that others express interest in.

(in no particular order)
Galactic Strike Force
Patchistory
Legendary: Villains – A Marvel Deck Building Game
Andromeda
Rise to Power
Firefly: The Game
Endeavor
Exodus: Proxima Centauri
Wiraqocha
Mercante
Istanbul: Mocha & Baksheesh
Helios

Any rondel fans coming to BC? If so we could have a Mac Gerdts mini-marathon. I'd love to get these games played:
The Princes of Machu Picchu
Imperial 2030
Antike Duellum
Navegador

Social game to play: Does anyone have a copy of Deception: Murder in Hong Kong? It would be great to get a group together for this. 20 mins, social deduction, bluffing, plays up to 12 people. If someone has this perhaps a separate entry is warranted to organise a game?

What I'd love to try (but don't have access to):

Flick 'em Up!
Baseball Highlights: 2045
Star Wars: Imperial Assault
Brass
Alchemists
Suburbia
Mombasa
The Gallerist
Above and Below
Abyss

My SeSo did an awesome job! Ora et Labora has been near the top of my wishlist for a long time, so I was really exited when I pulled it out the mysterious box on my doorstep! Even better, underneath I found RAF: The Battle of Britain 1940, a game I've thought about over and over but never pulled the trigger on. Honestly, although I've wanted to play it for years, I don't think I would ever buy it for myself.

(I actually received the games a while ago, but was trying to set them up and post pictures of them on my table. Unfortunately, I've been to busy/lazy to get around to it. Sorry, SeSo blush )

Solo Rules: OFFICIAL

Another Uwe game (yup, I own quite a few ), and a spiritual successor to Le Havre, with a more spiritual theme too ^^.

I have the original printing, with the paper thin components, but they do serve me fine. I have played this once so far, and look forward to playing it some more. I haven't managed to get this to the table as much as I would like, so solo play is a good way to be able to explore all the cards and combos.

Initial Rating: 7.5 (May 2015)

Uwe Rosenberg is one of my favorite game designers, so I always expect a lot from his games. Happily, Ora et Labora is a very good gamer's game .

The game comes with lots and lots of components, sadly, many of them were damaged when I punched them. Also the player boards are very flimsy. I'm thinking about laminating them.

The rules were easier than I expected but the decisions in the game are far from obvious due to the sheer number of buildings. Each building has a cost and an effect but you also have to take into account where to build it (strong spatial element) and the type of terrain in which you can build it. It it's great .

Ora et Labora comes with excellent (and vital) player aids.

The resource wheel is very well done and does an excellent work tracking the resources and the game rounds. I think this was the first game in which Rosenberg used it but I already played other games with it (Le Havre: The Inland Port and Glass Road).

It comes with two variants (France and Ireland) that have different resources and cards. Very neat. So far I can't really compare them because I have only played Ireland.

I was worried that the static setup could lead to a low replay value, but my gut feeling is telling me each game will be different. The are just too many options with the buildings.

I'm indifferent towards the theme, but I have to say many buildings feel very thematic.

On the bad side, I think the cards are too small so you can't see them clearly across the table. Also, it came with lots of manuals (I think four?) and as I read the rules almost exclusively on the iPad I couldn't find all of them. However, this is a very minor dislike.

It was very expensive for me, but this week I heard about an upcoming reprint.

Bottom line, Ora et Labora is a very good resource conversion game. Very reminiscent of both Le Havre (resource conversion) and Le Havre: The Inland Port, but much more closer to the later. It has a lot of potential and I want to play it again soon.

One of 2011`s favorites.

This is the only game from the past 5 years to squeeze into my all-time top 10, so it's an easy choice. The gameplay is completely absorbing and very challenging, the variety of elements to consider is wide, no two games play the same despite it being a game of perfect information, and it's much less fiddly than Rosenberg's other Harvest games. It's so intense that I don't get the chance to play it much, but I always jump at the chance to do so. Just an amazing game!
