The Castles of Burgundy: Longish but worth it

I finally played The Castles of Burgundy after letting it sit on my shelf in shrink for six months. I was taken back a little when I started punching out the tiles. There are so many of them!
The game comes with a main board, six double-sided player boards, dice, and a whole bunch of tiles. So many tiles, in fact, that it can be overwhelming at first, especially for baggers. Relax, and punch through to the end. Gather up the tiles by the colors on the backs and then bag them. After placing them in the standard 4″ x 6″ bags, I realized that they didn’t really fit into the box insert like I wanted, so I went to the craft store and bought 3″ x 4″ bags. That was much better. I am not insane. I am organized.

I eventually got past the punching a bagging. Even after my first play, I knew that this was going to be a keeper for me. This is some serious Stefan Feld goodness and I'm sure it will see many years of play. Highly recommended.thumbsup
