Definitely an improvement on the last batch. I already have Taj and La Citta but I'd be interested to hear any comments on Sylla.

Re: The Works Online Selling Rio Grande Classics for £9.99 each (plus 30% off for a limited time)
Nice find.

Sylla is not very good. Fairly lumpy in its play, nothing new or interesting in the design, pedestrian choices. Nothing that made it stand out or excite. It's not actually bad or broken or anything, just very clumsy and obvious.

Taj Mahal is worth getting. I'm amazed it's turned up here.

La Citta is a great game once you get the hang of the fiddly bits in the rules. People move in and out of cities under different conditions, and the rules as writ don't quite make it clear enough. One to play as a practise session but definately worth buying.

Cape Horn is OK. It was interesting in its day, but we've all moved on.

Re: The Works Online Selling Rio Grande Classics for £9.99 each (plus 30% off for a limited time)
Sylla is by Ystari, with all that implies - the graphics are not as good as they could be, reading the rulebook is heavier than it should be, but there's an actual serious game there.

The reviews on here, for and against, are worth looking at before you decide. Compared to Trajan, there's more than one way to win in both, but this one's Roman theme is not pasted on and there is more than one significant mechanism.

If I didn't already have it, I'd be getting it.

I haven't played Sylla, but for a tenner I don't mind risking a Blind Date.

It's a while since I played it, but as I recall, the expansion for Cuba is really good and a very worthwhile addition to the game if you like the original.

You can also get 21% cashback from the works if you order through Quidco.

If you are new to Quidco I can pm you a referral link where we both get £2.50

Brilliant, thanks! I've ordered Taj Mahal and Sylla, and a few books to get over the £20 for free shipping. I'd have bought La Città and El Presidente too, if I didn't already have them!

Unfortunately when I got Cuba in The Works about 2 years ago, I found El Presidente in a shop for £17, which was a bargain at the time ... and I've still never played it, so I'm kind of kicking myself now!

Man, I've been wanting to get Taj Mahal for so long. Even searching eBay and prepared to pay more than I should for it. Thanks, theworks! And even more thanks to the OP! GG for you, sir

£20 for 3 fairly well rated games... it'd be rude not to!

I grabbed those three, plus Principato - at less than a fiver after the discount, it seemed worth a punt...
