Great review, Tom. I do like games that make you cry after thinking. So it (and Mutton) will eventually be on my buy list.

I'm with you, Byron. Mutton is certainly fun, and Néstor's edition of it looks awesome. I have played it with a standard Hexpack, using BuyWord tiles to represent the sheep, and I've played it online. I love the look of Corporation (Go, Mireia!), and Tom's agonized description sells me on it, too.

It looks like the game would benefit from a set of black cubes to indicate which rows have been used that turn.

If a red piece is on top of a yellow piece in a blue room, does it move up on red/yellow or red/blue?

Hi.

Those cubes will be useless, as the same promotion can be used more than once per turn.

A red piece on top of a yellow piece moves up on red/yellow.

I hope this helps,

Ah, did Tom have that wrong in the review then? Or maybe I misunderstood him.

So you look at the chart on the right and if any of the pieces can move, you select one and move it up. Then you just repeat this process until there are no visible pieces that can move. Is that correct?

Yes. That is correct.

I think Tom had that wrong. As you can see in the video, there are some promotions that can be executed again, but Tom didn't do it.

I hope this helps.

This reminds me of Reef Encounter. I thought Tom liked that one, so i'm surprised he didn't like this one.

Well, if he didn't get the rules right, and he thought a minor component was absent....

I've gone back and played with the corrected rules, and that DOES take away my gripe about remembering which line to use.

However, it does point out that the rules are unclear on this - because I just didn't get that from them.

This game is NOTHING like Reef Ecnounter.

Anyway, even with the updated rules - still don't like it. It's still WAY too much of a brainburner, and not much fun.

Gahahaha, I laughed so hard at this line

"A game that makes you cry after thinking".

I couldn't have described the game better!

Probably one of the best brain-toasters I've ever played and THE nestorgames brain-toaster.

Playing against a friend (mathematician and chess player) our game lasted almost an hour. But it was a very close and interesting match, as we both had only one piece remaining on the board and both neutral colors were very close to winning!

Very good game!

That was the best review I've ever seen from Tom.

Something about the snappy pacing and the dry sense of humor. The setup and closing were hilarious. Well-done.

Maybe you're right. I changed the "promotions" paragraph a month ago to clarify this (thank you

for the re-writing).

Unfortunately I sent the game to Tom before this.

I learn every day.

By the way, you may exchange any 2 counters on the Director's table, not just the "couples".

Yeah, he eventually demonstrated that later in the video. I was confused about that at first, but finally he swapped two very different counters.
