Hallo everybody,
I've to take a game to cancel shipping cost.

I was looking at Blueprints and Trambahn - I play mainly 2p. Which one of them is the best in you opinion?
Have you other recommendations for a game, which costs max 20 Euro?

Thank you

+1 Biblios

Red7
Arboretum
Morels

I have Blueprints but I would play any of the above before Blueprints. We are loving Morels right now.

+1 for Biblios.

And I agree Blueprints is very...meh.

Trambahn looks really good, though. I haven't played it yet, but I would give it a try.

My husband and I own both and my vote would be for Trambahn. We feel that it is stronger than Blueprints at 2 players.

I'll chack Biblios. I didn't know it.

Why blueprints is meh? I found the idea very interesting.
Trambahn looks very promising, but I read that it lacks of interaction and this in a 2 player game could be a problem. I really do want interaction, even if it's light like in patchwork, but definitely not a single player game.

The scoring system in Blueprints ruins it for me. You score all these points for your structure, but those points aren't real points. They get you the "reward" card and then the points go away and you start over next round. The blueprints themselves are just either too easy, or too easy to ignore and make up the difference somewhere else. I find the scoring for each die type too fiddly, and like I said above, fiddly for no good reason. Plus, for some reason I just never felt like I was building anything; it felt like I was merely stacking dice. Needless to say, it was dull.
