Quite a fun game...even though I got my butt kicked.

I like the fact that each year is sort of like a game within a game. You need to focus on your actions, while also keeping an eye on what you're going to have to do when winter comes.

Played with the full sized card (module 1) and really liked it. I ended up completing the new producing option and almost managed to pull off a victory - Roger and I tied at the end. It's very nasty, but the key is that if you don't commit to it fully it's not really that valuable.

It's not a favourite of mine, but my wife likes abstract games...and usually kicks my butt. Tonight was no exception.

Played a few things wrong but definitely enjoyed it. The game board and pieces are beautiful and once you get into playing it is quite elegant.

Recommend and this will be returning to the table soon.

A great gateway game with a unique "random rondell" mechanism.

Hadn't played this in quite a while, but my wife remembered she liked it so we picked it up at my FLGS Boxing Day sale.

I don't remember it being so hard...but there may be a difference playing two people rather than the four we played in the past.

Maybe a little too abstract for me. But it wasn't bad.

Haven't played this in a long while. It didn't seem to hold its intrigue for us. I remember when we first played it that it was incredibly unique because of the wall tiles. But it was just alright.

Probably heading to the trade pile.

A top 10 game for my wife and I. It's just so simple and so fun. A great way to start or end an evening of gaming.
