Many people don't like how Caverna is more 'open' than Agricola. If you're one of those people then Fields Of Arle isn't for you. A sandbox game where you have many options to score points and win.

Uwe must have been listening to Feld because it is about a close to a point salad as his games get. Simply put an excellent, heavy, two player only euro from the master himself.

A vicious euro that lets you screw over other players. If this played well with two it would be my number one of the year. It doesn't - an average game with two - but with four it sings.

Another heavy euro. One that simulates running a car factory. Sounds like work, but it isn't. The game runs a little long with four players and the board *looks* like a confusing mess (but once you understand how it works it is very logical)

However this is a brilliant euro.

Lots of juicy wood and a surprisingly good game too.

Unless there's a Caverna expansion I'm calling this Expansion Of The Year.
