I want to shorten my collection in order to keep only one/two representant(s) of this genre.

I will choose the games with the most thumbs up.

Feel free to add games and pros/cons comments to help me making my choice.

Why not this one ?

It looks very promising with resource conversion used to upgrade resource hextiles rather than transform goods (except for gold).

Played twice.

Pros :

Cons :
It is not a funny game and i don't want to spend my so few free time to play this game. I can understand the Rosenbergmania but for me enough is enough. Some people say that O&L is the ultimate game that let the author go through with his ideas (best of both world between Argicola and Le Havre).

For me, it is the game of excess :
- too much buildings
- too much ressources
- too much combinations

but also of lacks :
- lake of theme consistence with some building effects too "abstract" (who said the Barn ?)
- lake of buildings readability : this prevents interaction and promote multi-solitaire gaming

What i found also very annoying is not to be able to know who will win until the final calculation.

I certainly understand the issues with Agricola (diversification over specialization) and Le Havre (crucial buildings and steel/coke) but i keep thinking that these games are more fun to play and bring more thematically coherent packages.

I would have liked better love O&L because of the appealing theme but for me it is not exploited. For example, i would have like to see the monastery aspect more developped.

For me, it will stay as the ultimate-resource-management-ad-nauseam game.
