Hi! somebody comment to me about writing a journal... so here i am, trying....
let's do a little bit of diary:
This has been our 3rd weekend at the Kwang-Ju (SK) boardgame cafe. We have never played new/German games before, only just keen on games, and collect old games.
This cafe is awesome... these are the games we have played so far each weekend.
1) pit, H&Gathereres
2) H&G, Labyrinth
3) Carcassonne, Lost Cities, Labyrinth
Why to bother saying what everyone knows??? They are great !! and i can not wait to the next weekend !!!
only one thought: -i am warming now-
CARCASSONNE or H&G , that is the question.....
For me is difficult to choose, my choice is biased by not only one , but two feelings:
a) I have been in Carcassonne (the city), and loved it. Recommend it to everybody here to visit.
b) Always between two things, I like the original, the older, the one that was the breaker.... H&G was a follower...
When i try to put this feelings apart... and also when i read unbiased comments about both games... The later seems to show as a Carcassonne improved.... therefore a better choice gamewise. Not to mention my wife, who after playing H&G, did not like Carcassonne !! and got crossed as did not understand the farmers scoring
i personally dont like to score for unfinished features, but of course, we dont need to, we can change that, end of the problem.
...then, I am closed to order... the doubt attack again... why to buy a game about a Zoo called Carcassonne... when i can have a game about my beloved city Carcassonne, and is basically the same.....??
