8. Another one we played to death during the years. I still consider this as my favorite worker-placement game.

I like this, but I can just get my best gaming buddies (who live in a different country!) to play Agricola or Puerto Rico, and my son isn't even one yet, so it'll be a decade at least before it's a candidate for playing with him.

I don't think Emily will enjoy the nearly abstract/chess level of strategizing this will force onto the worker placement mechanic. Not sure I will either. I'm pretty sure we'd rather play Vinhos.

DELAYING A MOVE THAT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE LATER

This is typically the biggest risk in a worker placement game. I need both of these resources, but I have to wait through a round of other players' actions between taking one and then the other. This leads to a lot of analysis of what other players need or want. Caylus also had a controversial action with the provost that simply allows or denies the use of some actions, even if players have already selected them for the round.

Which games make this an easy decision? Which games make this a very difficult decision?

#10

King Phillip reigns supreme over worker placement land. This still feels like the perfect distillation of the genre despite being one of its earliest incarnations. It eschews the engine building (although there's arguably some present here) and personal board development that would come to dominate the genre in favor of a completely shared placement space that promotes interaction.

That interaction may make you want to strangle your neighbor, but that's the best kind, isn't it?

Previous rating: New to this list
Difficulty: 4
Luck/strategy ratio: 10/90
Length: 2-3 hours
Players: 2-5
Ownership: only played core game
Style: worker placment, euro, city building

This is one of the oldest and best worker placement games. It does suffer a few weaknesses that cause other worker placement games to be ranked higher on my list. First this game just seems to drag on and on. Also it just seems like you aren't really accomplishing much. improvements that you make add very very little at a time. It can be a chore. In that aspect it does have that feel of slowly building a city.

What if you can place special buildings/tiles along the way like Caylus that all players can use? Whistle Stop features five types of special buildings and five types of towns. Special buildings include the Coal Yard which gives you more coal, the General Store which gives you a free resource, the Trading Post which lets you do trades, the Whistle Factory which gives you a free whistle, and Gold Mine which gives gold.
