Exactly what I was hoping this game would be. Simple and fun. Seems perfect for our group. Will certainly be picking this one up. Thanks.

Thanks for this!

This is why I find playthroughs so much more informative than straight reviews, and why I love Gamenight. I hadn't even considered getting this until now, thinking it was just a throwaway card game, but seeing it in play showcases the worker placement aspect and makes it come alive. It's like having a modular board that's always evolving, with new placement areas slotting in and out. Like Aaron (Aaron's back! Woop woop!) wanted to keep playing, I wanted to keep watching and see how a third round played out.

Unfortunately, post-Essen scarcity is resulting in some predictable scalping in the UK markets, and the game seems to be priced at £35-£40, which is ridiculous for a double set of cards and a handful of meeples. Hopefully it'll be more readily available next year for at least £10 less.

Thanks again for the great episode, however.

A very large international print run is just finishing up so you should see it much more widely available soon.

Thanks so much for the note and for watching. -Lincoln

This looks like great fun! And was fun to watch (Aaron and the strawberry market was a hoot)! My family would definitely enjoy it - ordered! Thank you for the video.

Why aren't you PLAYING a game?

Wow this looks great. Like others were saying, wasn't thinking about getting this one, but now it feels like a must have. And what a brilliant theme here - very approachable.

I do appreciate Aaron's insight here on strategy, but I'd want this game to fill a bit of a different place in my collection: light but evolving into something more challenging as you continue to move through the deck.

BTW, the conversation at the end feels like a mini-review with *alot* of context - since you just saw the game play.

Heh. That could be cool.

That is our Donkey King machine. I had fun sort of restoring (didn't need that much help) the machine last year.

Thanks for the note and for watching. - Lincoln

I had completely written off getting this game because I thought it was just another card game...this looked like a lot of fun though!

Thanks to everyone for the kind words - I am there as often as I can be, it just rarely approaches 100% of the time. Happy gaming!
