Despite having possibly the most dull cover of any game in my collection, The Castles of Burgundy is a fantastic game in which you take actions using die rolls in order to place land and building tiles onto your player board. While it may still not sound all that exciting, it is rich with tactical decision making and opportunities to chain together combos that feel oh so satisfying. While a stronger theme would maybe help it hit the table more often, it always provides a great experience when we pull it out.

Here is what piqued my interest for this game. I overheard this, "I only lost because you took my chickens." I have to learn this game.

This game is very unique "Point-salad" style game. Different strategies, different boards, different tiles drawn makes this game very replayable.

It is amazing how many times you can think "anything but 3's" and you will roll 3's!

This game shines at three players. It is an excellent 2 player game.

Edit: Terrible Name...That kept me away until the chicken thing.

Since Small World was already mentioned, I'll go with this. While I don't hate it, it's not a favorite by far. I realize this marks me because I'm dissing a Feld game. This game just seems like work to play. I'm not afraid of thinking - I like 18xx after all - but this, and seemingly most of Feld's games just aren't enjoyable for me.

I like castles. The only Feld game you'll find on this list, but certainly not the only Euro. I'd love a collector's edition of this game with nicer tiles and a better color scheme. Seriously, the castles should be BURGUNDY!

This is the top ranked game of 2011. I'm mildly curious.

But I hear there's a game from 2011 that takes all the best parts of Battlestar Galactica, but significantly cuts down on the play time. Now that's a game I'd like to try. I hear it's called:

My favorite Feld and to me his finest game. Elegant design, with easy rules and so much strategy. Throw in all the expansions and the strategies just grow and grow. Also, another point salad fest.

Mechanically this is a tile-laying game governed by dice that (dis-)allow selecting some of the options. Expect AP to be at work here. Typically, at game end individual players' mats will likely be filled up almost completely no matter which way the players went. It's efficiency in VP generation that's key. There's no destructive element in BvB. Interaction is usually not targeted but definitely provided nonetheless as the game consists of many small races to reach something first. A feelgood game, excellent for two players.

Times played: 2
max 1:30
avg 1:25
min 1:20
Board: 'Deutsche Mannschaftsmeisterschaft im Brettspiel' -Board.

I used the Solo play rules from user Almecho. I took 2 points for each shipment ("two player setup").

Rule question:
it says that I shall remove one of the black tiles each round. Does this also happen in the first round? This would mean that from the 4 black tiles in the center (2 player setup) there are only 3 left at the start of each phase.

During play I forgot to remove the largest wares tile whenever a ship is removed.
I think a good suggestion to the above linked rules is to not remove black tiles until the start of the second round.

Result: 166 points.

Solo play is nice to learn the setup and the rules. I see the challange in solo play to get a high result. But what is a high result with these solo play rules? I need to play more solo games in order to find out, I guess.

Great with two players. When I think about it this probably should be ranked higher. Can be a bit fiddly at times & is not going to "pop" off the table. But go ahead and play a few rounds then maybe combo a few tiles into some delicious point salad and none of those complaints matter because its just a great game.

Nathan 202 (winner), Chris 180, Roni 159*

While I put things away and picking up, Roni taught Nathan this game that he quickly learned and mastered. This is one of my favorite titles, and I am glad that another player now knows it.

*Roni would like to say that she had a harder board to play.

A newer to me game. What I love about Castles is that I can bring it out with most anyone. One of the few "point salad" games I enjoy. The best iteration of dice manipulation I have seen.
