Sleuth of a Seuthe: An Investigative Review on Games

As a long time avid game player, and lover, I come before you to tell you my complete honest and forward opinion on games. I will bring out the things I like in the game. Point out the things I dislike. And consider who this game would be best targeted at. All of this while also assigning a completely random biased number on a scale of 1-8. Why 8? Because I can!

Review of "GuildHall: Job Faire"

A friend of mine was trying to order a copy of Guildhall, but unfortunately due to the fact that Guildhall: Job Faire's box, except for the top, looks exactly like the Guild Hall box, he was shipped the wrong copy by the store. That being the case they wouldn't return it, so we played it all the same.

The game is simple, players start with a hand of 7 cards. On their turn players may use two actions on their turn. Actions are playing cards (and resolving their effect), turning in Collections, or redrawing cards. Lastly if you choose to play to cards, they can't be the same profession.

Cards in the game are, Robbers to take cards, Peddlers who trade cards for already played cards, Tax Collectors who grant victory points but forces you to move an already played card to another player, Bricklayers who allow you to basically redraw while also playing the bricklayer card down, hunters who trade played cards for discarded cards, and Scholars who let you take cards from the deck and lay them down.

You must have all of one profession, in every color to complete a set, and then you can trade sets for victory point cards.

First person to arrive at 20 wins.

WHAT DID I LIKE ABOUT THE GAME:

I liked a lot about this game. It's fun, and enjoyable, while at the same time not being to aggressive, or in your face. I mean there is a "little" in your face, but it's not to bad.

WHAT DID I DISLIKE ABOUT THE GAME:

I have to say, the problem of the box, and the unfortunate situation it placed my friend in, is very disappointing.

WHO IS THIS GAME DESIGNED FOR?

Designed for people who like Dominion, but don't want to have to randomly generate a list of cards to play, and then repack them later in the evening.

RATING!
6.9 out of 8. It's a good game. I'll give you that. It just feels a little repetative, and the deck size makes it a little hard to actually get a good shuffle, and can lead to large clumps being stuck at the bottom.



Now for something entirely different, for anyone who loves party games, keep in mind our reviewer, and amazing game designer has created an awesome game called Rough: The Card Game that is currently available for free print and play within this site! Check it out.

If you are interested in what is going to happen with this game feel free to email us at Info(at)MonkeyFingerGames(dot)com and we will let you know as anything happens!

Keep gaming!
