The attention of gamers the world over has made Kingdom Builder the hottest game on Boardgamegeek, and I could not resist investigating what the hotness was all about. So having done so, lets all rejoice free speech, healthy debate, and be happy. When can I get this game?

Don't fall for the hype. Wait for some reviews first. The game isn't going to be a limited edition, so it will be around for quite some time (especially if it is any good).

Ignore the naysayer. Go ahead and get fired up. there's no reason to think the game won't be worth it. I can't wait to see it myself.

I've already bought, designed, and played Kingdom Builder in my head.

It was okay.

I give it an 8.

"Kingdom Builder"? Seriously? Are we that out of ideas?

At this point let's just call it "Board Game" and get it over with.

I don't know dude. Splice some Dominion ideas with a little hex based gaming from the same designer and I think we have a winner. I'll be buying first and asking questions later.

Or "Every day I'm Shufflin'" - damn pun based on some song I haven't heard. It is such an easy joke that it has spread to me from two isolated groups of people meaning I think that multiple people have thought of it in isolation.


I don't care if the game is called "Kingdom Builder". The gameplay looks sweet. But I do find your game names funny.

Kingdom Builder? Man, that game is so September 12th. It's time to move onto the next hot game or risk losing your membership in the cult of the new.

Yep, buy into the hype and frenzy, the 'cult of the new' sauron requires that you do! Sell all other games you own (or donate them to me), cut off all your hair and fast until the release date.

Looks a little bland honestly. Was hoping for a lot from the guy who made the great Dominion!

Hopefully the mechanics will be pretty awesome I guess we'll see.

People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.

That's what I thought after playing Agricola and Le Havre. "At the Gates of Loyang must be good if it was designed by Uwe Rosenberg". Its never safe to assume that you'll like a game because you've liked other games made by the same person.

I don't mind the name... but if the expansion is called "More Kingdom Builders" I might have to say something.

I would say "that's odd..." and likely buy it anyhow.

HA!

Yeah, but the difference was that when you put out Dominion you weren't "The Hotness" so the game company actually put some effort into making the game marketable.

Now, you are "The Hotness" so F**k it, let's just slap a big "FROM THE MAKER OF DOMINION" on the box and roll 'er into production.
