Hi there,

Had a discussion during lunch with a colleague and he played a game which I can not name just on his description. So here it goes :

- you have a specific role (of a set of characters) : not sure if you can select this role each turn
- you have a barn and wheat and that wheat will perish if you don't use it on time
- ships... There were ships too
- and cards...
- and a central board (?)
- and yes, each player also has his own board
- the name of the game was a city of a country (???)
- it received awards according to him (SdJ?)

I'll look in my collection if I can't find it but for now : it seems to ring a bell but I can't come up with any title(s)

thanks!

Puerto Rico?
Le Havre?
Bremerhaven?

None of these fit exactly, but memories are a funny thing.

Thanks a lot James Puerto Rico was also my 1st suggestion : but received a big no (he didn't recognize the cards and such when I showed them here on BGG). Le Havre and Bremerhaven : thanks for these : just asked and noppe

Memories are indeed a funny thing :-) It's the challenge to see what game he played. Especially as he said he found it difficult.

Polis: Fight for the Hegemony has goods that go bad, ships, cards, a central board, and player boards, but no barns, selectable characters and its name is not of a city. Not sure if it's won any awards. ninja

I wanted to suggest that!

Look like a game connaisseur and suggest that he get the expansion, El Presidente. It makes an already good game a lot better.

@indigopotter : I had the same reaction I have the game in my collection, played it a couple of times when it was released and as it usually goes, I "forgot" about it as there always new games on the table

@wim : Why didn't you? ;-) Just kidding of course! But yeah, I've done the same thing yesterday, even though I haven't played the expansion yet
