What Snowdonia does, is make several expansion scenarios available for a very small price.


9.8 Board Game Geek

Snowdonia outperforms Viticulture in everything I can think of.

has to offer for this year.
There was mention of a expansion for GoL and I must have a look at the prototype of "A nice cup of tea" especially after Ben Bateson kinda made fun of it on the UK games expo "who dares rolls" discussion

A game that deserves to be labelled a classic and year on year it only grows in my estimation.

I must own this great twist on a worker placement game, but there are so many hard-to-find expansions and promos (there is even a website detailing them all!) that I also must own. So, it is an all-or-nothing for me.

I'm waiting for the big box reprint.

My first entry ever....
I had my eye on this game for a long time and finally Marty's judgement conviced me to get it.

I will play a full 5-player multi-solitaire, my preferred way of gaming.
Will post a picture too!

See you soon


EDIT June 5:

Played the 5-player yesterday evening for the first time, I love this game!

So since Marty wanted to be the yellow player, I thouhgt that I might as well have more geeks playing with me (ahem - I'm pink btw), so I also included Koinskyz as blue, marble911 as green and Ibbo as purple.

I also had a different strategy for each player:
Marty - should go for contracts,
marble911 - wanted to emphasize on stations,
Ibbo - I sent to lay tracks,
Koinskyz and maho were told to do just anything as the game progressed.

Endgame board:



Scores:


I think the results speak for themselves

Very fun, will play this again very soon, next time with:
gentle,
Zakoholic,
Gribbon,
benjamininja and of course me.

I haven't played Snowdonia in over half a year. So it was about time to get it back on the table.



I have some of the expansions (all still wrapped in plastic) sitting on my shelf, but for today I've decided to leave them as they are and go for the classic campaign (up to Mt. Snowdon). I've played 7 times in a row with trains 1 to 7 and overall it was a very enjoyable experience

Some Statistics:
Best score: 174 (with train #5). Worst score: 145 (in my first game).

Conclusion:
thumbsdown Setup takes a long time.
thumbsup The long setup makes for great replayability.
thumbsup It's tight and feels like a quick game, even if it takes 45 minutes.
thumbsup The clever event mechanism made me feel like playing a multi-player game the whole time.

And now I need to go and try the expansions... meeple

I came home yesterday to a small envelope which contained to my surprise a... Ravioli!?



Upon opening I found this wasn't just any Ravioli, this was an M&S Ravioli a Snowdonia flavoured dish



I'm very grateful to the kind 1PG guild member who got this for me - though to be honest it didn't taste as nice as I expected and I could only manage 4 of them. I'll have the other one for lunch.

Thanks

Final board above on my very first game ever of Snowdonia. I enjoyed it so much that stayed up past midnight to finish the game plus post the result here! My final score was 175 points. One question I did have was that the event put the last track down, however the rules say to go one more round after that happens if an event does it. Was I correct to do that? If not my score would be 14 lower.

This time I played Train #2 Enid. I was able to place my 16 cube fairly early, much earlier than my first game, probably by about 5-6 rounds. But, I scored lower at 167.

The Train, Weather, and bag draws totally make this game highly replay-able, not to mention the different scenarios and expansions to boot. This is a super-tight, polished, and well designed game. I like it so much that I bought Guilds of London by the same designer.

Difficult to say if Kickstarter saved this game for me - I might have found a way to purchase it anyway. Still, it deserves to be here as it would otherwise not have come with the snazy miniature workers!

I taught this to one new player, who really seemed to dig it (pun intended), and 2 others who had played before. It is a great game, and one I rarely get to play, so I was delighted. I didn't win, but I really did, having got to play it again.

for setting this up & teaching it!

I enjoyed this game VERY much. The many different things you could do, the beauty of the components, the perfectly wonderful people to play with, just perfect.

I had no idea what I was getting into, the game's name caught my attention years ago because it had a print-&-play expansion called the Daffodil Line. It is now on my wish list.

James, Nick and Jeff

Nick and Jeff had played recently but it turned out they had been playing the contract cards in an over-powered fashion, allowing the use of the card's power once per turn rather than the correct once per game!

With a rules refresh for myself we set off. Nick got some high scoring rail building contracts and hence focused on building track. Jeff and Nick were first to get train engines and I was forced to take one of the weaker engines. However, I was clearing rubble at a rapid pace and building the stations such that I nearly ran out of ownership cards. All I needed was to find some contracts to reward my endeavors - which I managed in the last couple of turns. Nick starved Jeff and I of coal on several turns such that we couldn't use our 3rd worker.

Jeff ended with several contracts I wanted but was unable to score them and trailed in the final scoring. Nick was 1 track build away from scoring another high value contract that could have given him victory.

Another game that needs to come out more often.
