We are late to the deck building party, but no less appreciative of the goodness on offer here. One play leads to another and another. The build and the play of the combinations that emerge are so satisfying. Like catching a big wave! As of the end of May, our #1 most played game!

Her favorite and a great two-player implementation of the Catan universe. Very interactive in a pointy way. And with three expansions in the base game
and six more if you add the two separately boxed expansions, this game offers super variability and replay value. The small box is a big plus!

His favorite so far in 2015. A fast playing, thematically immersive pick-up and deliver, that is easy to teach and fun to play. Less fiddly than others of it's genre, but with very fine components. Seems under-appreciated for a game that really delivers the goods!

New to us in May and has been an immediate sensation in our extended family. Dominated our table-time since we first ripped off the shrink. Enjoying it at all player counts. Enthralling to everyone to whom we've introduced it!

Great filler that provides a pleasantly tense play every time. Begs multiple plays. Such an interesting timing element, so easy to get lost in the engine building weeds...

Great game of tough choices and tantalizingly limited resources. So true to it's premise of sustainable farming. Life on the farm is all work, but thankfully this plays so engagingly. Has a Huge "what if I try this..." factor that drives replay.

Our gateway game and one that has not faded in its ability to entertain. The trading...it's all about the trading! And then there's the divine dice - that both giveth and witholdeth in such unpredictable measure.

Enjoyable with two, but really shines with 3 or 4 players. We like the choices and the evolving patterns that come as we delve deeper into the possibilities that the game presents. Has bumped Stone Age to supporting role. Just bought the expansion and anticipate much more table time with Lords of Waterdeep.

Old game and an old gamer...and yet it's a new trick! Played for the first time this year and discovered this gem of a press your luck design for myself. Her loves it too. Very complusively replayable. Easy to learn and quick to play. So simple and yet so satisfying in its use of dice.
