Re: [Amazon] Lords of Vegas $32.97 with Free Prime Shipping (CSI $45.00)
this game... it makes you feel uncontrollable.
gambling houses profit? you draw cards
gain more influence than other bosses? you roll
win money from other bosses? you roll...
so it's really not for strategy gamers

This game is all about assessing odds and mitigating risk, it's one of the most pure strategy games I've ever played. The best players almost always win.

Almost always has been my experience as well. It just goes to show, dice behave predictably if you roll enough of them.

Is the art inside this game as bad as the art on the box?

That's what I thought until I played Eldritch Horror.

No, the board art is a pretty neat top-down depiction of old Vegas. The box art is probably the biggest reason this game is so underrated. It's become my go-to gateway game for getting people into boardgaming.

Yeah i don't see how a company could put money into developing a game and drop the ball so much on hideous cover art.

I'm surprised everyone hates this cover so much. I kind of dig it. And the board/tile/cart art is great.

I love this game. Grab a set of poker chips and it's even better(removes the difficulty of handing out paper money).

I have played with and without the Casino chips for Mare Nostrum and the chips really add a sense of value when you earn them. I would imagine it would feel even better when playing with a casino themed game like this.


I watched several reviews on chips and these were the best bang for the buck. So I grabbed them along with the game.
