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?
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?
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!
