I also believe that you met the King of the Forest, Mei, and meeting him is a sign of good luck.

I have always heard good things and at this price I can gift it to my newly indoctrinated board gaming brother/sister.

I have purchased this game about 3 or 4 times now when it drops down below $20. Everybody says it's a great game but it looks so plain that I never get around to playing it and end up just selling it. I think it's one of those that I'll never end up playing.

hands down probably the ugliest game in my collection and probably one of the top ugliest games out there relative to such a high rank.

That being said...

It's an extremely fun game and I would definitely power through a tutorial to learn it and play it, I've played it quite a bit and will always welcome it to the table now.

It is a plain looking game, and for it's msrp you'd think you'd get more in terms of art and look.

That said, it is one of the best games I've ever played. Not that I've played dozens and dozens of games, but I adore it. It's not so fantastic looks lend to it's charming, and this game is charming as f$@k.

Looks wise it's a 4 or 5 five, but I have seen worse, game play wise and replay-ability wise it is a 10 across the board.

Getting your not so greatly illustrated cluck cluck chickens to finish off a farming section 8 tiles big with 3 or 4 other cluck cluck chicken tiles to score huge is so satisfying.

Yeah it’s a hideous game, but it’s also one of the most well designed ones I’ve ever played. If you can get past the looks, it’s an absolute gem. CoB is like the butter-face of board games.

Second best dice placement game I have played. Troyes being first.

Guess I'm just weird, because I don't think it looks bad at all, but the gameplay is just... okish.

I'm with you. The art and design are not great, but they're not really bad.

However, I think the gameplay is fantastic.
