ACTION POINTS!!!!

Kiesling & Kramer are a couple names that are on this list at least one other time, and probably could be on here a few more times, but there just isn't enough time in the day for me to get to everything they have done.

Tikal is a game about exploring the forests of Central America looking for treasures and temples. You do this by sending your workers all over the forest. All the while you are continuing to build the board out further and further adding newer and newer tiles to be explored.

But it's the action point system that really sold me on Tikal. Each turn you have 10 action points to spend, that's it, nothing more, nothing less and how you use these points is a continual struggle as you race to be the on with a majority at the temples that gain points based on how excavated they are, or by digging for treasures. It's a good struggle and a really fun way to play an exploration game.

One of the bigger complaints, and rightfully so, is the downtime between turns. Because of those 10 action points being a point of struggle for players sometimes, it goes without saying that there will be times where you have to wait a bit longer for your turn than you do in most other games of this weight. My version is the older Mask Trilogy sized box and thusly I have those little bitty components that are quite fiddly to be honest. I haven't looked at the new version from Super Meeple but I imagine the plastic temples at least solved some of the fiddliness.

Really, Tikal is a gem for anyone's collection, especially if you were to get all four of the original boxes to go along with it. (hint hint, Charles), I just wish I could break it out and play more, but it's not a two player game, in spite of what is printed on the box, and that's primarily how it would have to be played at home

Tikal is a classic. The action point system works very well. My wife and I enjoy studying Mayan culture and we love Tikal (the actual ruins), so the theme of this game was practically designed with us in mind.

There are a few thematic elements that do not really make sense (like teleporting between camps or uncovering the bases of the pyramids before the tops), but those are all quickly forgiven when we start playing. Our scores are always close which speaks to the great balance this game has achieved.

Travis is my other brother-in-law. Travis and his wife (my sister) enjoy gaming with us and I am slowly helping them grow their collection.

Around Christmas time last year we played my copy of this game and had a blast. We love this game. I have the old version and told him about the Super Meeple version and he was enamored with the nice components.

I was able to find the new version for him and cant wait to get it on the table.
