Which of his games should I not pass up on? So many of his games look so good: caverna, at the gates of loyang, glass road, Le Havre. I've played Le Havre on iOS, is it necessary to get the actual game?if I already have -and enjoy- agricola & Ora et labora are his other games different & fun enough to warrant a purchase? Perhaps I am just suffering from the acquisition disorder.

Bohnanza.

I'm fond of many of his resource conversion games, Le Havre probably being the favorite among them.

But Bohnanza is special. Simple rules, innovative and intelligently designed pure trading game. And a lot of fun to play. Highly recommended.

Bonanza? Really I never took that game seriously. I might have to take a closer look at that one. Agricola is my current favorite; it's very thematic & fun

I haven't played Glass Road or Gates of Loyang, but Caverna is similar to Agricola, and Ora et Labora is similar to Le Havre. They are all resource conversion games, so how many of them to get depends on how much you like the genre.

Personally I like Ora et Labora over Le Havre, and think Caverna is more accessible than Agricola. But Agricola has a loyal following and many additional decks of occupations and minor improvements. You can try Agricola with some of the simpler decks on iOS.

I've only played Le Havre and Agricola. I'm not a huge Uwe fan, but I prefer Le Havre to Agricola quite a bit. Agricola just feels like too much work to me. I would say that they are sufficiently different to warrant a double purchase, but as for any game I would try and play it at least once face-to-face.

I also agree on Bohnanza. In fact, I will cheat and pick two favorites. If I'm playing with my gamer friends, then my favorite is Agricola; However, if I am playing with my Family, I would have to pick Bohnanza.

Both are amazing games that I will never refuse to play.

Agricola and Ora et Labora are great to me, but Le Havre is even better. I think there is room for all three.

Loyang is okay and Merkator is okay.

Bohnanza and Limits are both light and fun.

I'm looking forward to acquiring Glass Road and Caverna.

With Patchwork, I've had to adjust...

Top 3 Rosenberg games... Bohnanza, Agricola, and Patchwork.

If you play 2p a lot it's definitely in top tier with At Gates of Loyang.

Bohnanza, Mamma Mia, Klunker, and Patchwork are his best games in my opinion.

Agricola is great, but we hated Loyang. Found it to be one of the driest games we have ever experienced. Do not be fooled by the veggiemeeples.

Glass Road is also good, IF you aren't easily frustrated by its 'piggyback' action selection mechanism. I don't care for it, but I can see how it would be fun for others.

Ora et Labora is just, well, there to be played. Nothing special going on.

Patchwork is a gem.

Sorry to rez such an old thread, but I have to say that Le Havre: The Inland Port has skyrocketed for me lately. I'm loving it and I think it might have become my favorite Uwe.

It's just SO elegant and SO fast playing...almost feels like a collaboration with Reiner Knizia to me (in a good way not an...Ohio way).

It's just so darn clever. From that action wheel that doubles as a turn counter to the super interesting warehouse mechanic that combines basic math with a super interesting spacial efficiency puzzle.

Love.
