I subscribe to forums when I purchase a game. I recently bought Viticulture and Tuscany Essential Editions. FANTASTIC game! This was the one that got my wife from "humor you" to "let's play one more".

Now subscribing to the Viticulture forums, I have to say how impressed I am at with the open communication of the Stonemeier team.

Seems like any question or comment that's posted, Jamie, Morten and the others are quick with an answer or follow-up. I don't have the numbers to back it up, but it feels like their presence is higher than some other design and publishing teams that are... incommunicato.

Impressive, guys. Thanks for the great games and being in the middle of the community.

Now, how do I get my wife to drink the Scythe and Wingspan Kool-Aid?...ninja

I got my wife to play Scythe for the first time this past weekend. Took a while and me having a bad day to guilt her into it. Once she got going she liked it and did really well, scoring 85 points as the Innovative Rusviets!

Thanks, Brendan! I appreciate that, though I have to say--I was just sharing this with a friend today--I'm fortunate that there are so many generous people who are willing to answer questions about our games. You mentioned "community," and that's the perfect word I'd use to describe it.

Have you tried Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig or Wingspan with your wife? They might have the Kool-Aid effect you're looking for.

My wife loved (and still love) Viticulture, and now she also love Wingspan, that we enjoy since we received it back in January. She wasn't too keen on Scythe though (played just once with a friend copy), because of the war-like theme.

Recently got back from extended board game weekend of friends and coworkers. I'd brought Viticulture Essential Edition, first time for all of us to play. It was without a doubt the hit of the "con", with several people definitely picking up their own copy when they got home.

gotta love SM games!
Viticulture is one of my favorite and I can't get Scythe to the table enough to quench my thirst of it.

I'm not a huge fan of Wingspan. but a lot of people are!
