Has anyone played this and "and then we held hands"? I am curious which one people enjoyed more because I only need one 2 player coop. Thanks.

I found this on a review...

"It’s such a different game to most of the stuff in my collection, and I put it on a par with the more curious items I own – something like …and then we held hands provides a similar kind of experience but feels completely separate to what Ravens offers as a gameplay experience."

Anyone else?

Ravens is much more interesting and thematic, art is better, mechanisms feel more original IMHO. Gave Hands away after a couple of plays.

I have both. I think they're both really good games, however if you only want one, I'd say it comes down to depth vs. ease of play considerations. ATWHH is much easier to learn and play, however I don't think it has quite the depth and nuance of RoTS. If both people are seasoned gamers and want a really unique, but somewhat fiddly experience, I'd go with RoTS. If either or both people are more novices, or want a more streamlined, elegant, but somewhat shallower experience, I'd go with ATWHH.

It is an art -- the growing of the moustache! I have sympathy for all who attempt it.

You can dwell on the sh*t, or you can just leave it behind in people's beds & keep going.

I have both and I have to agree with Sizzla's post, except I don't think "..and then we held hands.." is that good. I'm selling my copy and keeping Ravens.

Ravens blows Hands out of the water. I wasn't that interested in playing Hands again after I tried it but I can't wait to tackle Ravens again.

and then we held hands is an interesting game, but mostly for non gamers.

Ravens is much much more complicated, but easily the better game of these two.

It really depends on your gaming partner IMHO.
