I should preface this by saying I don't mind playing it online - still not my favorite game, but slightly less annoying.

I've tried multiple times, but I just don't have fun playing Castes of Burgundy. I recognize the brilliant mechanics, and I think this is a good game for the right crowd. Not for me, though - the theme doesn't grab me, it's way too fiddly with set up, and it overstays its welcome.

My 2013 ranking:
5

# of Plays (since 2009):
52

Likes:
The way dice are used. Quick turns. Watching my board progress. Handling turn order.

Dislikes:
Wish the components were much better. And I wish I had color coded bags (see pic below) to draw from instead of shuffling & stacking to start each game.


Tidbit:
Seems like a perfect game for real time iPad play. How about it Playdek? It’d be an instant buy for me. Only pimping I’ve done is using my more expensive dice. When I bought the dice, I was sure to buy all the Burgundy colors.

Memorable Game:
Any game with my wife. Particularly at the beach with a relaxing atmosphere. It’s probably our favorite to play together.

Question: Does set-up time keep you from playing this one more?

#10 is the best of the ten, as far as I know.

Good balance of luck and strategy. You are at the mercy of your dice, but you need to make the best choices with what you have.

Lots of fun. Good with 2, 3, or 4 players.

Will play this on occasion.

In honor of Ryan's birthday, we played this game by his favorite designer. And we let him win.

Red Ryan - 252
Blue Rob T. - 230
Black Greg - 227

I'd like to thank the fellas for pointing out a nice play I could do to help me toward completing an 8 hex region.

Hard to pick the "one" but I think this one eeks out a win over a couple others in this challenge for me.

1-5: Puerto Rico; don't own, but try to play at the local convention each year

6-10: The Castles of Burgundy; one of our favorite Felds

11-15 Power Grid; debated with this as we normally play with 2 and the Robot expansion, but I can't imagine this not being on the list

16-20 Tzol'kin; it doesn't get to the table as often as I'd like but this is always a fun game of choices and watching the wheel turn

21-25 El Grande; this has been on my wish list since returning to boardgaming

26-30 Keyflower; I love this worker placement game and the building aspect as well.

31-35 Tigris & Euphrates; another of those I'd like to have, but don't and it's the only one that really grabs my interest here

36-40 Trajan; it was hard to add another Feld on here when some games slipped lower in the upcoming categories

41-45 Pandemic; since there were few co-ops to choose from that I could really get played, this one has to be on the list.

46-50 Stone Age; one of my wife's favorites

Bonus: Castles of Mad King Ludwig & Jaipur
It was sort of interesting to see what was left in this half of the top 100 and a few agonizing choices to pass by---but I guess those would be on the next order when the insurance check came in!meeple

1-5: Puerto Rico - which I don't like, but think I'd prefer to the others
6-10: Castles of Burgundy - easy choice, as it is one of my favourites
11-15: Le Havre - Don't know it but wanting to try it
16-20: 7 Wonders - I do like this one
21-25: El Grande - a real classic
26-30: Dominion - Definitely
31-35: Tigris and Euphrates - I don't like this, but still best pick here
36-40: Trajan - Not tried it yet but want to (I do like Feld games)
41-45: Pandemic - I enjoy this
46-50: Stone Age - another classic I love
51-100: Ticket to Ride - Another of my favourites

Extra: Bora Bora (though Village was pretty close - I'd trade Puerto Rico for it!)

This exercise demonstrated what I already knew - that most of the games I love are nowhere near the top of the ratings, but that doesn't bother me.

everyone likes this except maybe my brother-in-law. but our wives especially enjoy it, so it's coming.

played

played it four-player wednesday night. i think there were some interruptions from babies not sleeping, so it took extra long. i barely squeaked out a victory over bro-in-law, something like 251 to 245. he had a 6-pasture space full of pigs, except for the very last space. i was able to get a lot of end game points from warehouses and builder workshops with the ability to put multiple buildings of the same type in each region.

This beast here. I was in the house of someone with several thousand games; with hundreds I would have been more than happy to play. Instead of a bunch of exciting games, we played Castles of Burgundy for about four hours (including a not terribly long dinner break), at least two hours too many, according to my tastes.
Fortunately, we stayed more than one night and played several games the next evening.
