Week 11:
Love Letter
Chicken Caesar
The Big Book of Madness

Not a lot of plays admittedly.

So every week I end up being late on posting (you'll note, if you cross-reference the metadata, that I have the week end Sundays (or Saturdays, the effect is the same, generally), and part of that is deciding what to talk about. Typically the solution is the path of least resistance.

So, Chicken Caesar.

I recently finished reading Robert Graves's I, Claudius and Claudius the God, historical fiction depicting the Imperial intrigue of the time surrounding the Emperors of the beginning of the common era, and as such a game that loosely and lightly addresses such a thing was right up my alley, so I borrowed a copy. Chicken Caesar was always loosely on my radar back in my math trading days, and now I realized it was something I wanted to experience.

Firstly, the theme I think is clever, but apparently not in the way it is necessarily inteded to be. The title itself, is supposedly a riproaringly clever joke. Because a chicken caesar salad is a thing. That is not a joke. That is not anything. I sincerely wish and hope that that wasn't the intent of the title, I would like to think the title is just a literal description of a core element of the game.

What I like is what this game does by replacing just generic Roman Empire stuff (which, if you search around, you'll quickly find is rather inaccurate) with chickens in the Roman style. A question remains of whether these chickens are chickens in Roman times emulating an existing system, or modern chickens emulating an ancient one. I prefer the former, but respect the latter. If this was just a game about political machinations between generic Roman families.. boo. But it isn't! It's about chickens!

All this thematic hullabaloo aside, the gameplay is very interesting. Each player controls a family of chickens, and these chickens are trying to push their way into different offices. Each office has a action that then can effect the turnover of the other offices, but really all that matters is the money (I will repeat here the basic fact that the game's currency, frumenti, is a misconjugation of the Latin frumentum into, rather than the nominative plural, as intended, but the genitive singular), and the tokens of office you earn by being in any individual office will stack and produce increasing sums of cluck bucks.

Thusly, a huge part of the game involves killing off chickens so they will no longer acquire tokens, have power, and make money. There are ways to give dead chickens accolades after death, but with how hard to come by the money is, this doesn't happen as much as you might think. Mostly, the lower offices determine how much money certain chickens will receive, and then how many chickens WILL die. There are specific play combinations you can use to save all the chickens in office (which will in turn push Caesar into a second and final term), but in at least the four player game this has never occurred. In almost all situations someone is in a position to kill, and someone else is in a position to be killed, and there is little to be done about that.

The game features an atypical election system where simply seconding a proposed vote pushes the motion through, and who makes the votes simply moves clockwise around the board as the game progresses.

Overall, I wish the game featured slightly less chicken murder and more backdoor dealing, but it does many things that make me think of other other games I don't like, in a way I do like. I'm not going to say this is one of my absolutely favorite games, but it's certainly one I am trying to get to the table more to sort out exactly how much I DO enjoy it.

Plays in 2015: 15
Own: Yes since 2015-05-20
First played: 2012-11-07
Last year: N/A with 0 plays

The first game I've purchased for a long time, it had been 18 months since I played and I have no regrets about buying, even with not a great deal of money. A couple of friends have taken a big shine to the game and I'm expecting to get many more plays in through 2016 as long as I don't tire of it.

I had the chance to play this at Essen 2012 (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/68430/item/2230881#it... ). If you want a lovely light version of Kremlin, this is it.

Rating: 3/5

A few in my group really like Chicken Caesar, it just never fully clicked for me. It's an enjoyable game to play though, I just usually would vote for other games like Nothing Personal or City of Horror instead.
