Unless I'm mistaken, Joe is one of the select few who appreciate Knizia's Africa for the great game it is.
Also, BGG will be a lot slower place without Huber-Speed as a standard to fight AP.

The best I can tell is that this was crushed under the weight of expectation when it came out. Otherwise, it's hard for me to explain the lack of love for this one. No, it isn't deep, but it isn't very long either (45 minutes tops with 3-4 new players, as little as 20 minutes with 2 experienced players).

It's beautiful, the exploration is fun and there are actual choices and some clever plays to be made.

It's a filler in a big box.

As a side note, the theme of colonial exploitation is quite well integrated into this despite its abstract nature. No, colonial exploitation is not a fun or funny theme, but, nevertheless, it should be recognized that it is well executed here. You can decide whether the theme is treated too lightly, but other than in the game comment by user Morgan Dontaville (sisteray) I never even see it mentioned.

They went with an elephant for the box cover but hippos are featured in the game too.

The kind of game that gets buried in Knizia's prolific catalogue. It's pretty decent.

We just got back from our vacation in Washington D.C. Meet australopithicus africanus from the Natural History Museum. I always thought that skulls were creepy looking, so I figured this would make a great Halloween 'costume'.

BTW, if possible, please don't enter me in the drawing for the prizes. I just like participating.

Africa - While by this point it's clear that I have nothing against lighter games, what draws me to Africa isn't the light nature of the game, but instead the room for planning and clever play the game offers. It's not a deep game, but I think it's much deeper than it's generally given credit for.

Funkenschlag - While Power Grid did somewhat shorten the game, I always found the original worked better - the pacing of the game feels better to me, and the route variety makes it of more personal interest.

Kardinal & König: Das Kartenspiel - While Web of Power remains quite popular, I've long preferred the card game version - I find the carriage/boat and symbol scoring simply works better, for me, than the roads & advisers.
